Gossip with a snarky, tart bite!

Snowstorms, and weddings, and mobsters. Oh my!

Talk about a crazy weekend. A gossip writer’s dream. With everyone snowed in from that unexpected blizzard (Thanks for the heads up, Misty Storm.) you’d think Havenport would snuggle in by a warm fire. I assume there was some of that, but we also had an engagement, a mysterious Russian, a second chance for old flames, and a hint (make that a wallop) of magick.

Well-laid plans never seem to go the way you want. Such was the case with a certain someone’s plans to pop the question over the weekend. If the weather weren’t enough to throw a wrench in the plans, finding out the intended bride’s ex-husband isn’t yet her ex, was sure to do the trick. Not to worry, our favorite single (or maybe not-so-single) mother is sure to find a way around such a minor inconvenience. And all our hunky veterinarian has to worry about is whether or not she will Say Yes.

The police were beside themselves this weekend. What with missing teens and a drug cartel on the loose, they had their work cut out for them. And with the phones out of service, they weren’t able to warn anyone of the dangerous Russian thugs running along the coast. Maybe if they had, our lovely historical society president might not have been so happy to help the mysterious Russian who showed up on her dock in the middle of the storm. That would have been a pity, since it turns out they knew each other from way back when. They’ve sworn to never love again, but then again—Never Say Never.

So what caused that crazy blizzard this weekend, you ask? Our own Misty Storm is on the case, but is she telling the truth or devising an elaborate tale as an excuse for not warning us about the biggest weather event of the year? You be the judge. Of course, you’ll have to believe in witches, and magick, and things that go bump in the night…like abusive ex-husbands. That’s what caused one nervous witch to panic and surround our town with that nasty storm. It took a strong man, with a warm heart, to defrost this chilling situation. Let’s all hope the sparks between the two don’t set off a heat wave next. So do you believe Misty’s story? At the very least, I’m pretty sure there’s one witch who will never have to be On Her Own again.

While Havenport prepared for the big wedding, our lovely bookstore owner’s divorced parents came to town. And when their daughters went to celebrate the big day with their friends, the storm trapped the estranged couple at the bookstore. Alone. All night. Awkward! Maybe you don’t know the history there? It’s a tragic story—buy me a cuppa at Mellie’s Diner one day, and I’ll dish all the dirt. For now, let’s just say that after a devastating loss, mistakes were made and the marriage fell apart. But I hear time heals all wounds, and while the kids are away, the adults will play. Maybe enough time has passed that these two can finally heal. Or is that just Wishful Thinking?

I hope you all enjoyed the weekend as much as I did. Snuggle up and stay warm!
