“It had me laughing out loud at some places and I grinned during at least 2/3 of the story. One of the few stories that I’d ever call adorable.”

“Just as good as the first and can’t wait for the third! Just keep falling in love with the characters more and more.”

Author note:  I was driving in the car with the windows down and I hit the search button on the radio, landing on a local country music station. A song came on talking about fried chicken and in a flash, I saw the story in my head.  I wrote most of the story at a local upscale grocery store that has a balcony and tables for patrons. I sat outside a lot in the heat there, getting the feel for a hot summer in Georgia.
