and even disappear.  And...maybe...reappear.

It's a game, you see. Of imaginations, yours and mine.

    When Mai meets Brit, an insurance agent and soon-to-be-grandpa twice her age, the last thing she wants is her relatives playing matchmaker. But what's a girl to do when the guy turns out to be fun, sexy, good looking, a fantastic salesman and the most determined vegetarian she's ever seen gardening in the buff? She can't leave Dubuque, Iowa, until her mother's broken leg heals.
     The solution? Move Mom and herself into a big, rundown Victorian house with two other senior citizens, creating a communal household. And since the oldsters are very generous with their post-garage sale items, why not open a flea market upstairs?
     Brit is Mr. Helpful--until he discovers Mai's flea market is next door to his new, upscale apartment building. His plans include turning the Victorian property into a private park for his tenants.
     Still, some folks think Life-with-Hot-tempered-Grandpa could have its charms.
    Then there's another wrinkle in Mai's disordered life. What about Brian, the husband who disappeared on their honeymoon?

About C.J.

A long-time resident of Missouri, C. J. Winters departs from her comfort zone to search the minds and hearts of her characters, for they have stories to tell. Fascinated since her teens by intangible forms of human communication, she puts her heroes, heroines and villains under a psychic microscope, searching for the reasons they are as they are, and do as they do. 

In her own life C. J. avoids microscopes. She was never very good at science.
