Read an Excerpt
“What was she like?” Joy dared at last to ask the question haunting her.
“Who?” Ray started, the warmth draining from his gaze. Even the hand lying between them in the car—the hand that until now had been holding and occasionally stroking Joy’s—seemed to grow colder.
“Carolyn. I saw her from time to time, but I never really knew her.” She was babbling but couldn’t seem to stop herself. “We did serve on the same committee once, but... well, actually I served on the committee. She chaired it.”
He hesitated, frowned slightly. He withdrew his hand, fiddled with the controls on the air conditioner.
Joy stared at the BMW’s sophisticated panel of controls, as different from those on her Volkswagen bug as Ray’s waterfront home was from her meager apartment. Not her apartment anymore. That part of her life ended when she said, I do, or—more precisely—when she gave notice and allowed the apartment to be shown and then rented by another single professional woman. She drew in a long slow breath, inhaling the delicious leathery smell of a nearly new car, while she forced herself to be silent, not to babble about something irrelevant, to wait for his answer. When she had about given up, he spoke, his voice clipped. “I don’t like to talk about her.”
A faint shiver ran down Joy’s spine. Although it was nearly five years ago that his first wife died, clearly the pain was still fresh. Perhaps it always would be.
