Aja Owens is a woman I can relate to. Having panic attacks in the frozen food section of the Piggly Wiggly. Trying to pretend everything is fine if she can just breathe through it and not see anyone she knows. Unfortunately, the attractive man behind her needs his ice cream.
Later when she goes to the Bingo place, her elderly lady sitting next to her has brought her grandson with her. And yes, it’s the ice cream guy. The man who saw her panicking in the store. And he wants to know more about her. She’s not so sure she wants anyone in her life.
Walker Abbott lives in Charleston. There is not one thing he likes about his grandmother’s home, Greenbelt. Well, except for the peach cobbler at the local diner. He’s helping his grandmother and counting the days until he can get out of this town. Until Aja.
He is going to shake up her world until she shakes up his.
This was funny and emotional and had a lot of anxiety that I could identify with. Cute story with some funny characters and Bingo.
