Melania’s Visit & Tanner’s Dinner Date

Gina Goes to the Gym

Dinner on the Boat

"What's that you're drinking?" "Pickle Juice." "Pickle Juice?" "Yes. Want some?" She made a face. "No, thank you!" "It's good for you, you know. I've been drinking it for years. Athletes drink it."

Boris On the Rebound

"Boris?" I glanced up and was startled to see my neighbor, Tulia standing there. I hadn't heard her because I was so deep in thought. I was still reeling from the shock of Cate breaking off our engagement. The ring was in my pants pocket. I longed to throw it away but it was expensive. …
