I turned the book thoughtfully over in my hands. I’d come a long way since mom had published the book. Not to mention mom had come a long way too. This may have been her first published book, but it wasn’t the last. I was still awed at the different genres she wrote well in. My door opened. I set the book down gently as I let Jeff help me out. “Barnes and Nobles?” I look around.
“Well we were talking about books, and there’s a coffee shop inside, so I figured, why not.” He shrugged and gave me a grin. He closed the door and proffered me his hand again.
“Yeah,” I said, “why not.”
