Baby Boomer Novel's Blog Hop


Continuing my “blog hopping,” here is the 4th excerpt from Boomerang, the first novella in the GIRLFRIENDS  trilogy.  Bill is regretting his breakup with Mary Jo after his affair with Constance cools.

After she left, Bill was even more convinced that he had made a mistake.  As he looked around the palatial home, he realized that he actually missed Mary Jo.  Her touches were everywhere. He smiled as he picked up a vase they had purchased in France.  The vendor had spoken in French to his associate saying he was going to “get over” on this American tourist, but Mary Jo spoke French fluently, and when she responded in his native tongue, he was so embarrassed that he practically gave it to her.  She’s really quite the little spitfire,” Bill thought, grinning.

  1. Happens all the time. Middle aged guys wanting a trophy chick on their arms and don't appreciate the solid relationship they had until it's too late. Love the idea of your Girlfriends trilogy!

  2. He may miss Mary Jo, but does she miss him? I'm looking forward to learning more about these characters, especially spitfire Mary Jo.
