U is for Unfortunately

“Unfortunately, Susan Schleicher was of no assistance,” Max said. “She was under the mistaken impression I was James and—”

“It’s over ,” Payne cut in. “Over. There is no grey area. No ‘yes, but.’ No ‘what if.’ Ida left her entire estate to Caroline, and that’s that.”

In an effort to save face, Max said, “It may come to that, but I didn’t actually get to finish my conversation with—”

Payne leaned across the table and stuck his face in Max’s. “It’s over! The woman threw your pompous ass out of her office! Can you not understand that—”

“She threw him out of her office?” Harriet snickered.

“Whoa, boy,” Louie guffawed. “That’s what I call an ass-kicking!”

Max banged his fist against the table. “Enough!” Then he stood, kicked his chair over, and left the room.

It was more than a week before he returned to the table.

About the author

Bette Lee Crosby

USA Today Bestselling and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby's books are "Well-crafted storytelling populated by memorable characters caught up in equally memorable circumstances." - Midwest Book Review The Seattle Post Intelligencer says Crosby's writing is, "A quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life and madcap adventures." Samantha from Reader's Favorite raves, "Crosby writes the type of book you can't stop thinking about long after you put it down." "Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write." It is the wit and wisdom of that Southern Mama Crosby brings to her works of fiction; the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript. She has since gone on to win nineteen awards for her work; these include: TheRoyal Palm Literary Award, the FPA President's Book Award Gold Medal, Reader's Favorite Award Gold Medal, and the Reviewer's Choice Award.
