The door burst open, and Mary Lou rolled her wheelchair as if she’d pushed a gas pedal. “Gunter, how long are you gonna keep me waiting? You know I always want to get to Noonan’s on Wednesday, when he puts out the savory salami and cheese croissants at ten thirty. I need to beat the lunch crowd.”
Before Gunter’s administrator Gladys quietly shut the door, she held up both hands palm out, pointed toward Mary Lou, shaking her head.
“Dear,” Gunter said with a sweep of his arm, “I’m meeting with these folks. Can you give me…”
Mary Lou appeared to swallow hard as her eyes rested on JJ and Jo. She maneuvered the chair closer. “I’m sorry to have busted up the meeting. JJ, Jo, I heard you were in town but didn’t get a chance to…Jo, why are you crying?”
Jo sniffled. “I’m sorry, Mary Lou, we’re trying to work with your husband on buying property next to Hank’s. We decided we’d like a vacation home at the least in this town…”
“Gunter! Why’s this a problem?” Mary Lou snapped. “These two defeated the human trafficking scum—” she pointed toward JJ— “he saved my life.”
Hank saw the tsunami Mary Lou got started and joined the ride up. “Mary Lou, I’m trying to get Gunter to honor his commitment to sell that property at a discount so this wonderful couple, who selflessly helped our community, can buy it. Gunter said he ain’t having none of it.”
JJ felt sorry for Gunter. He watched the man age from the verbal onslaught. Gunter closed his eyes, likely previewing the dressing down he’d get from his long-term wife. It was clear who wore the pants in that family.
Enough is Enough – JJ roars when the Paparazzi wrecked their dinner
JJ and Jo realize privacy doesn’t exist for them. They return to Magnolia Bluff to check on their friends and recapture the small-town anonymity. In Magnolia Bluff, no one suspects their fame.
They discount the status as urban legends in favor of acceptance and a quiet, peaceful life. After all, a supermodel needs time and space to recharge between jobs. A geek wants time to adore his wife.
Does Magnolia Bluff hold the answers to their prayers?
Will their desires get clouded by a hidden secret?
Past, present, and future collide in a perfect storm no one expected. JJ and Jo take action to uncover the truth. Chief Tommy Jager likes them but feels they’re a lightning rod for trouble and disruption.
Who will live or die to prevent the truth from being exposed? The answers may be in the graveyard with fresh flowers on the gravestone.
