“I simply have to talk to Stacey, right now!” Eleanor Johnson’s voice
carried right to the back of the shop where Stacey Lawrence happened to be
working in her office. “I’ve been here twice already this morning.”
Swallowing a soft groan, Stacey got up and walked to the front of her
“Oh, Stacey, there you are!” Eleanor beamed and rushed closer, her arms
outstretched, ready for a hug. “I’ve just been telling Billie here it’s urgent that
I talk to you. It seems I keep missing you today.”
Guiltily, Stacey returned the older woman’s hug. It wasn’t that she didn’t
like Eleanor Johnson. In fact, she loved talking to the flamboyant, funny, and
endearing local artist, but besides the fact that she was crazy busy on this
freezing last Friday of October, she was also extremely wary of Eleanor’s
self-proclaimed matchmaking skills.
As a very happy single woman, her biggest frustration since moving to
Alisson, Montana two years before was that everyone in this town, especially
Eleanor, seemed bent on finding her the one thing she seriously didn’t want:
When she’d arrived here, two of the first people she’d met were the two
Wilson sisters, Charlie and Lindsay, both local businesswomen. It had been
such a surprise to discover that they, like Stacey, were also originally from
Over the last two years, Charlie had married Eleanor’s son Logan and
Lindsay had married Blake Davidson, an ex-FBI agent who was now one of
the owners of the local dojo in town.
Eleanor’s daughter Brooke, also a renowned artist, had married Charlie and
Lindsay’s brother Gavin, and he’d subsequently moved to Alisson during the
past year. Although Eleanor had never admitted she’d played any active role
in these love matches, the town gossip mill was full of stories of how she’d
wrangled things to get the couples together.
Eleanor had been shamelessly inquisitive about Stacey’s history ever since
her arrival in town, but so far, she’d managed to evade the older woman’s
questions by offering simple, vague answers with a smile. Even though
Stacey preferred not to think of the past—it wasn’t as if she had anything to
hide—but she’d quickly picked up on Eleanor’s not-so-subtle-attempts to try
and find her a husband.
So, the less Stacey talked about her herself, the quicker Eleanor would find
a new subject to try her matchmaking skills on, she’d reasoned. However,
since Brooke and Gavin had tied the knot in June earlier that year, it was
clear Eleanor had turned the focus of her skills on Stacey with renewed gusto,
something that made Stacey even more wary.
“I need your help, dear,” Eleanor was saying.
Stacey smiled tentatively. “As long as it’s not about dating anyone, I’m
happy to help.”
