Title: Four White Roses
Author: Judy Ann Davis
Genre: Romantic Mystery
Winner of three writing awards!
When widower Rich Redman returns to Pennsylvania with his young daughter to sell his deceased grandmother’s house, he discovers Grandmother Gertie’s final request was for him to find a missing relative and a stash of WWI jewels. Torrie Larson, single mom, is trying to make her landscape center and flower arranging business succeed while attempting to save the lineage of a rare white rose brought from Austria in the 1900s. Together, the rich Texas lawyer and poor landscape owner team up to rescue the last rose and fulfill a dead woman’s wishes. But in their search to discover answers to the mysteries surrounding them, will Rich and Torrie also discover love in each other’s arms? Or will a meddling ghost, a pompous banker, and an elusive stray cat get in their way?
Torrie took a sip of wine. “Oh, I almost forgot. Estella and Iris want to dye their hair pink.”
“What?” Rich set his glass aside, tumbled onto his back on the soft grass, and covered his forehead with the back of his hand. “Holy fright. How do we stop them?”
Torrie laughed. “Take it easy, they just want to put a few streaks of pink in their hair. Many schools don’t allow odd colors in their students’ hair so all the kids are doing it while school is out for summer.”
He peered up at her. “I’m light years behind in this hair coloring thing, and I’m clueless about Estella’s clothes. The other day my precious daughter informed me I needed to take a class in fashion—and she said a parenting class wouldn’t go amiss either. I feel like a big dope.”
Torrie chuckled. “Estella is precious, but she’s extremely articulate and way too bright for her age. I can get some washable, colored hair spray, and we can see if they like it first before we make the giant leap to a professional hair dresser.” She set her wine glass aside and laid on her back next to him.
“How do you do it?” he asked her, staring at the treetops. “Do you ever feel you’re not getting it right? Raising your daughter, I mean?”
“All the time.” Eyes closed, she sighed. “Sometimes I feel like I’m not getting my whole life right.”
He rolled toward her and brushed a finger across her cheek. She turned her head and looked at him. His gaze was as soft as a caress. He kissed her gently along her neck. “There’s some chemistry happening here,” he whispered in her ear before his mouth covered hers hungrily.
