Please enjoy this free 4 chapter each preview of Charmaine Gordon's River's Edge Trio, Volume 1, with She Didn't Say No, Housebroken, and Help Wanted.
River’s Edge where Kindness to Strangers is the Motto... Wouldn't you love to live where neighbors look out for each other, where children play outside without fear and no elaborate play dates have to be arranged. I sure would. Like the good old times where widows weren't widowed very long because friends were busy match making. And neighbors made soup for the ailing sick friends at home. A place to call home reminding me days gone by brought River’s Edge to this author’s mind and creative juices flowed. Add pets to the mix and what do you have? A homey portion of Americana where anything is possible.
Three River's Edge Stories in one volume!
She Didn't Say No
Grace didn't say no to the Big Man On Campus, Scott Dwyer. And then her life changed... Years later, a too-close encounter of an unpleasant kind with a skunk and Scott’s German Shepherd reunites the former lovers. What happens in between are their stories of beginnings and endings and love lost, then found.
Sally and Steve Atwood must make a big adjustment – a fair number of them, actually – when after thirty-five years, three grown children, and a lifetime of memories, they are alone, together, at last... And, then they found River’s Edge, a small town with big heart, stories to tell that will warm your heart, make you smile, and turn a dreary day into a day of hope for the Kindness of Strangers.
Steve and Sally Atwood have some big adjustments to make when they move to River’s Edge. Afraid he is losing Sally to a more exciting world, Steve panics, but despite Sally’s lecherous new boss, together they rediscover all the love of their thirty-five years together and all the... excitement... that brings to their lives.

“I didn’t realize at the time while working as an actor in NYC, I’d become a sponge soaking up dialogue, setting, and stage directions. I learned many tools of writing during the years watching directors like Mike Nichols and actors including Harrison Ford, Anthony Hopkins, and Billy Crystal. And would you believe, I was Geraldine Ferraro’s stand-in leg model, my first job giving me entrée into all the Unions needed to work. When the sweet time ended, I began another career and creative juices flowed.”
