When Sisters Attack…

Here’s a snippet from the upcoming Rona Shively story, Thy Will Be Done…

“Jane, do you think I’m generally a good judge of character?” I said.

She took a bite of her salad and chewed rather thoughtfully for a moment before answering.

“Well,” she said. “Sometimes.”

I raised my eyebrows at this. “Sometimes?” I said.

She shrugged her shoulders. “Yeah, well,” she said, “I guess most of the time you can judge people pretty fairly. Sometimes it seems like you’re avoiding the truth.”

I was, for lack of a better word, flabbergasted. Jane was telling me that I avoided the truth? Um, talk about the pot calling the kettle black.

“Really?” I said.

“Uh-huh, really.” She picked through her salad with her fork and brought another bite up to her mouth.

“You’re serious?” I said.

She started to take a bite, but stopped to say, “Yeah.”

I sat there for a moment, thinking about Jane’s assessment. If someone like Jane thought this, what sort of image was I portraying for the rest of the world? I had always considered myself to be a pretty fair judge of character. Of course, I’d never been particularly good with men, but that was different. We all have our El Guapos.

Thy Will Be Done…available this February!
