“Hey stranger, what you doing up there?”
Startled, Luke lost his hold on the nail gun, and before he could grab it, it careened down the slope of the roof toward where she was standing. “Look out below!” he barely managed to yell, before the heavy gun crashed to the ground a few feet from where she stood.
“Trying to kill me already?” Penny laughed.
The sound of her voice, her laughter, it slayed him, just like it always had. What was she doing here? Grabbing on to the peak of the roof for support, he turned and tried to regain his composure. There she stood, all five foot two inches of her, long blond hair flowing down her back. Dressed in her riding jeans and boots, she looked the same as she had before she left four years ago. For a moment he thought he was seeing a ghost, but then she spoke again.
“I stopped by the ranch house and your dad told me you were up here. Nice cabin, by the way.”
Still shaken by her presence, Luke decided he’d better get off the roof, before he went the way of the nail gun.
“Give me a second, and I’ll come down.”
He quickly gathered the rest on his tools and backed down the ladder. Once on solid ground—at least physically—he looked over at her slim, attractive body.
Well, I'm already intrigued. I'll look forward to reading more of this story, Jill!

Widowed in her fifties, she leads a solitary life with only her cat Lucky to keep her warm at night. All thoughts of romance died with Stan. They had a wonderful, long happy marriage, and she’s content to live out the rest of her life with her memories.
Howard Crandall, Peakview’s only mechanic, is a confirmed bachelor and something of a hermit. When Stan died, he took it upon himself to look out for Violet. Over the years, they have become friends, but it isn’t until the past he has hid from for thirty year past suddenly catches up with him, that he opens up to the idea of finding love.
