EXCERPT / Chapter One – Part 2

One of those things would be facing her cousin and explaining things. Thankfully, her cousin was the only person she’d confided in about her whirlwind romance and the expected engagement. And even then, she’d kept the details to the bare minimum, not even mentioning his famous name as she hadn’t wanted to jinx things before the engagement was made official with a diamond ring.
Now that the relationship had imploded, what would she say to her cousin? It was just one of those things. Or the truth: she had the worst luck where men were concerned.
The car dropped her off at the edge of the village, allowing her to stop by the market and pick up a few essentials before heading to the villa. She hadn’t been home in a little more than a month and during that time she’d used a local real-estate management service to rent out her place. She worked as a camerawoman for a nature channel and she’d come to rely on the extra funds from renting her house. It wasn’t ideal but it supplemented her savings. And those savings were what would keep her afloat until her agent found her a new gig.
After picking up cream for her coffee and a few other groceries, she paid and headed for the exit. Taped to the door, she noticed a flyer for Fiorire Botanical Gardens’ prestigious annual photography competition. Gianna had always wanted to enter but never had the time. The entry deadline was coming up. She tucked the information in the back of her mind.
She stepped out of the store with a sack of groceries in one hand and her luggage in the other. It was then that she realized in her haste to complete her errands she’d sent the car away and would now have to walk the rest of the way home. Not that it was far—perhaps a fifteen-minute walk, give or take a couple of minutes, depending on how fast she moved. But part of her travel was uphill on a bumpy dirt road. There were only a handful of villas on the dead-end road where she lived. Hers was the last one—
“Gianna?” came a distant voice.
She didn’t have to turn around to know who was calling her name. It was her cousin—the one person she’d really hoped to avoid. It wasn’t that she didn’t love her cousin. In truth, she loved Carla dearly. She was more like a sister than a cousin. But Gianna just wasn’t ready to admit that she’d failed at romance. Again.

    The weather can’t figure out what it wants to do yet. Today in the 70’s. Tomorrow in the 90’s. Then back into the 80’s. And, it is cold at night.
