Tom wiped his hands on the dish towel and smiled at her. She'd never entertained a man in her kitchen before, other than family. Shyness rose as he studied her. He exuded an aura of quiet vitality and strength. She was entranced and almost stepped closer.
“Well, guess I better go.” He made no move to leave.
“Okay.” She hesitated for a moment, and glanced up at him before
turning to walk toward the door. Her awareness of him intensified,
making her breaths shallow. He stopped near her by the doorway.

Ingredients by Nancy Shew Bolton - OUT NOW FROM PRISM BOOK GROUP! http://amzn.to/1spDrG2
Ann’s hectic work responsibilities demand all her time and effort, and
what was once a useful, satisfactory life has become a burden to carry.
Her bakery partner Susan has lost none of her enthusiasm for their
business, and Ann can’t understand her exuberance, or her friend’s
Christian faith. So she trudges along, hiding her dissatisfaction from
Susan, resigned to a life of work, sleep and problems.
Unexpected comments offered by two different people cause a crack in
Ann’s armor and her thoughts careen into unexpected directions.
Attention from a young widower with a son challenges Ann’s resolve to
stay safe and uninvolved. Susan’s example of faith through trial
furthers Ann’s curiosity about God. Ann must choose to step toward the
unfamiliar freedom of giving and receiving love, or stay in the shadows,
stuck in the grip of past hurts.
