SNEAK PEEK 3

He met her eyes. “Hannah…?”

Her chin tilted up toward his. “Yes, Carter?”

“You going to be okay here? I can always call Sandy—”

“No, please. Sandy’s already done enough. So have Lou and Kurt, and…” She ducked her head with a blush. “You, Santa.”

“Kind of funny meeting that way.” When she looked up he was grinning. “Funny, but not bad—by any stretch.”

“No. Not bad at all.”

Hannah noticed his jacket slung over the back of the armchair and that he’d set his hat on the table by the door. Carter lifted the jacket and slipped into it, raising its zipper. “Might want to stick that bowl of stew in the microwave for a minute or two.”

“I’ll do that,” she said brightly.

He ambled toward the door and placed his hat on his head, tapping it down. His deep voice rumbled. “Kurt’s a good-looking guy.”

“Kurt?” Hannah asked, flummoxed.

“Eligible bachelor too.”

“Can’t say I noticed.”

“No? I thought I heard the two of you talking from the kitchen—”

“Sheriff.” She stopped him. “I’m not interested in any man right now, okay? And if I were…” Hannah swallowed hard past the lump in her throat.

“If you were…?” he said, leading.

Hannah’s heart hammered and her knees felt weak. “I told you, I’m just passing through.”

“Odd thing about that, Hannah.” He tipped his hat her way. “Nobody in town seems to know that, but me.”

Then he stepped out the door, shutting it soundly behind him.
