Sauce for the Goose by D.A. Featherling

The girl has got to go!

To save her son from a romantic mistake, Laurel Edmonds renews some former relationships of her own. Complications abound when new beau Mike Hudson is added to the mix.

Her romantic dilemmas, her plot to save her son, and worries about her mother, aka The Bus Queen, force Laurel to cope with a fake engagement gone real, a surprise wedding, and a confession she never imagined she’d have to make.


“So what did you wish for when you blew out your candles?” His mischievous grin told me my son had a zinger ready for my response. Sometimes I wondered if Ross were really twenty-two years old, or only a ten-year-old in an adult suit.

“Ah, that would be telling!” I tried to assume a mysterious expression. Ross loved to tease, and after years of allowing him to do so, I knew the expected repartee. In reality, I hadn’t had anything in mind as I blew out the candles.

To keep from starting a fire, as well as to cope with the demoralizing effect forty-four lit candles would have on me, I’d chosen those green and white numbers with a wick. Still, the double fours caused a momentary panic on my part. Fifty wasn’t that far away.

“C’mon. You can tell your number one man.”

He wouldn’t stop unless I said something. I open my mouth and blurted. “I wished for a husband.”

The minute the words popped out of my mouth, I cringed.

Ross’s mouth dropped open. He tried to speak, gulped once, swallowed, tried again. “A husband! Are you serious?” A series of emotions, not really identifiable, flitted across his face.

Bad mistake.
