    Mr. Winston Bevelstoke, the butler announced, and Sir Richard Kenworthy.

    Her overplucked eyebrows rose. What would Luke know about that?I understand you were both on the ferry the day he left. Jake Ferriman said you were going to Portland. My dad talked to you both. He was upset.

    Her lips narrowed in a hateful smile. Oh, yeah. Ayuh. We were there.We were? I don’t remember, Luke said, finishing his drink.I’m hoping to find out what happened to him, I said to Teeny.

    That Holiday Feeling (Virgin River #7.5)

    And what’s in it for me?Sweet woman. What would you like? Damn. That was a mistake. I should’ve offered her twenty bucks.

    What would I like? she screeched. I’d like my son to go to Tufts University, that’s what I’d like. But you killed his chance, didn’t you? And now you want something from me? I doubt it, flatlander.

    Ooh. The ultimate insult, calling a Mainer a flatlander.Five nights after I found Poe in the cave, I got a phone call from a number I didn’t recognize. The area code, however, was 206.

    You have a call from an inmate at Washington State Women’s Correctional Facility, the recorded voice said. Press 1 to accept the call.My hand was shaking. I pressed 1.

    Outpost (Razorland #2)

    Lily? I whispered.For a minute, there was no response.

    Tell her I’m sorry. My sister’s voice, which I hadn’t heard in years, cut my heart in half. I’m so sorry. Take care of my baby, Nora. Take care of her better than I did. I had no business becoming a mother, but I love her, and I’m so, so sorry I couldn’t be better.I will, I breathed. I swear it, Lily. I’ll take good care of her.

    I know you will, she said, her voice breaking. I know.Tears poured out of my eyes, and I pressed my lips together. She loves you, too, I said. She loves you so much.

    The sound of my sister crying had always gutted me.I wiped my eyes on my sleeve. Are you okay, Lily?
