“You know, June says Merrick isn’t seeing anyone at the moment.”
It took a lot of self-control not to recoil. June was my mom’s best friend, and also the mother of my archenemy, Merrick Dawson. I’d known Merrick since my teens, and to say we hadn’t gotten along would be an understatement of epic proportions.
I took a calming breath. “You can’t seriously be suggesting Merrick and I should go on a date?”
She shrugged. “You’re both single.”
But not desperate.
It wasn’t that Merrick wasn’t attractive. He actually was extremely good-looking, and he even had a good-paying job, by Pearl Cove standards. He was the police chief of this little town. No, the issue wasn’t money or looks. The problem was I disliked Merrick with the power of a thousand suns, and the feeling seemed to be mutual.
