Excerpt for When Love Happens Again
“Hello.” Alex extended his hand to Jennifer. “It’s nice to meet you.”
“Hi, same here.” She smiled, glancing at Alex’s broad shoulders, and realized Natasha would be in matchmaker heaven if she saw this rugged, good-looking guy.
Harry nudged her. “Don’t you want to know why Alex’s the man for you?”
“I figured you’d tell me.”
Alex gave a boyish grin at her remark.
“This is your lucky day,” Harry said, looking pleased. “Alex’s a building contractor. He can help you with your remodeling.”
“Thanks, but I want to do it myself.”
“How in the world are you going to do it all by yourself?” Harry pushed his glasses back up on his nose. “Your house needs major work to make it livable. You have no business living there now with all the work it needs.”
“I have running water now in the kitchen,” she said, miffed at his implication she lived in a dump. When she’d first moved into her house, there hadn’t been any plumbing in the kitchen. She’d washed her dishes by filling a small tub with water from the bathroom.
Alex said, “I don’t mind taking a look at your house. I have time this weekend.”
“That’s kind of you, but I had someone inspect the house before I bought it.” Jennifer took a step closer to Harry. “But I do need mousetraps. Where can I find some?”
“We have them on the middle shelf in aisle five,” Harry said.
After she got to the right aisle, Jennifer wondered how many traps to get. She turned her head at the sound of footsteps and saw Alex.
“This kind is old-fashioned.” He picked up a trap. “I have some you don’t have to set, you just put them down and the mouse sticks to the trap.”
She gazed into Alex’s brown eyes. She didn’t care what kind of traps she bought. She just wanted to get them and get home. “I don’t see that kind here.”
“You can use mine. I don’t live far from here.”
Couldn’t he get the message she wanted to be left alone? She grabbed the nearest trap. “Thanks, but I’m in a hurry to get rid of the mice. I’ll just get these.”
