Cover Reveal: EARLE’S GRAND DESPAIR

Fate brought them together one December evening, but it may also pull them apart forever…

Earle Kramer visits Enchante restaurant awaiting the arrival of his fiancée Bonita, primed to announce some wonderful news to her. When Bonita leaves Earle via cell phone text message, he is devastated, and does not know what to do. Another patron at the restaurant that same evening experiences a similar predicament to Earle.

Ria Carnette is also left in the lurch by her fiancé Alain, who does not show up at all at the restaurant. She later discovers a letter from Alain regarding their separation at home, which leaves her heartbroken.

The plights of Earle and Ria are viewed with sympathy by caring Enchante restaurant owner Harland, who does his best to encourage Earle and Ria to get together, seeing their mutual, if tentative interest in one another. Will Harland’s best attempts to connect Earle and Ria fail, or will his intuition about their compatibility prove wonderfully correct?

“Yes, ah, well Brandy, this summer, you won’t celebrate like all the others running around at the beach, cavorting with young men, and making an almighty fool of yourself,” Agnes said.

Brandy shook her head, her eyes now saucer-shaped in sorrow.

“But mom, I never do things like that, you know,” Brandy said.

“No, I don’t know. Just because you’ve turned eighteen doesn’t mean you can become like all the others. This summer you’ll stay at home, with no parties, no merrymaking, nothing,” Agnes said, folding her arms in front of her daughter.

“What! I can’t see my friends, like Arabella,” Brandy said, bursting into tears.

“Agnes, stop this madness!” Garth said, pulling Agnes to the side.

“No, you stop it,” Agnes said, freeing her hand from Garth’s grip. “Only Arabella’s allowed into our house, but your other friends can amuse themselves with each other, and their boyfriends. Your grandparents won’t be able to enjoy the summer, and that doesn’t mean you can. Their memory will be cherished by us as a family for the next while, and that’s the end of it,” Agnes said, treating her daughter to an icy glance, before walking out of the room, leaving Garth and Brandy shocked. Seeing that Brandy was dumbfounded by Agnes’ behavior, Garth walked closer to his daughter, and wrapped his arms around her.
