Her legs ached from climbing up and down the ladder countless times. And even though she’d been on her feet all day, her step count had only reached something like eight thousand steps. How was that possible? She felt as though she’d been walking all day.
At last the tree was trimmed and it didn’t look so bad, if she did say so herself. She was so excited for the town to see it that evening at Twinkle Light Night. She’d worked for months to come up with just the right look. And it’d turned out even better than she’d imagined.
And now that it was late in the afternoon, it was time to head back to the bookshop. Sara rode with her. Melinda was relieved to find that the holiday business had been steady. It appeared that half of Bluestar Island’s residents would be receiving books that Christmas. They’d sold a lot of kid’s books and for the adults, cozy mysteries had been a big hit. In fact she made a mental note to place an order for more who-done-its.
After she thanked Ava for handling the shop while she’d been decorating the tree, she gave Ava the rest of the day off. When Melinda perched on a tall stool behind the checkout counter, she sighed. She was so happy to at last be off her feet. Liam had made her the stool as a birthday gift. He told her she didn’t always have to be on the go. She’d used it plenty of times in the months since he gave it to her.
“Melinda, did you hear me?” Sara’s voice interrupted her thoughts.
She blinked and glanced at her friend. “What did you say?”
Sara frowned at her. “We didn’t get to talk much earlier. What’s up with you today? You’ve been distracted all day.”
There was no way she was admitting that she had been thinking about Liam and Tate. She knew Sara would jump to all of the wrong conclusions, especially now that Sara and Kent were an official couple. Sara now seemed to think that everyone should have a love match. But Melinda didn’t have time for romance—not that she’d ever had much luck when it came to cupid’s arrow.
