Excerpt: Astrid’s Secret

man and woman at office desk working

Book Launch Week continues with this brief extract from Horseshoes and Hand Grenades, in which Astrid has just been cautioned by her mother about maintaining professional relationships with the men at work, especially her boss Brad.

You’ll see where this is going…

Or that I fantasized about dating him and becoming the ultimate power couple, even though I had a boyfriend already and had been warned a million times about workplace romances by my mother.

Tomorrow, we go back to Martha’s Vineyard to meet some furry characters.
