Wicked in Whispering Cove by Nikki Duncan
I’m in Whispering Cove today talking with Dr. Danica Mitchell, formerly Dr. Kent. Between you and me, I’m hoping she’ll be a little more forthcoming than her Whispering Cove counterparts who’ve been interviewed this week.
Interviewer: Thanks for joining me today, Dani. I know you’re between patients so I’ll make this quick.
Dani: No problem. My next patient is family now. He’s wily, but he’s not going anywhere.
Interviewer: I’m guessing from the fondness in your tone that Byron is your next appointment.
Dani: He is.
Interviewer: Is he still meddling and matchmaking?
Dani: *laughing* He’s taken a break on the matchmaking, though I’m not sure how much longer that will last.
Interviewer: Why’s that?
Dani: He keeps making noises that if Braydon and I don’t hurry up and give him a great grandchild he’s going to find a new couple to be his honorary grandchildren. A couple who won’t let him down.
Interviewer: *laughing at his antics* He is direct in his non-direct way. Now let me be direct in my direct way. Are you and Braydon working on a family?
Dani: I’ll tell you what we tell Byron. We already are a family. 😉
Interviewer: You think you’re so vague, but I’ve heard you’ve been spending a lot of time out on the boat. I’ll find out your secrets soon enough.
Dani: Maybe. In the meantime, I’m going to enjoy my private sailing trips with my new husband.
Interviewer: I can’t blame you for that. Now tell me, other than your newlywed bliss, what’s going on in Whispering Cove? What’s this festival I’m hearing people talk about?
Dani: The fall festival. It’s a huge party we do every year at the close of tourist season. I really missed it while I was gone.
Interviewer: Is it for the tourists or the townspeople?
Dani: Both. Tourists love it. We have booths for everyone’s entertainment. Music, face painting, pony rides, a dunking booth. I’ve heard rumors this year of a kissing booth and psychic booth. Oh and Hauk is talking about setting the bar up as a haunted house, so that should be a good time.
Interviewer: That does sound like a great time.
Dani: *laughing* What it sounds like is a great excuse for Errol, Harold and Byron to get back into matchmaking.
Interviewer: You think they will?
Dani: Wouldn’t put it past them. And before you ask, yes I have my suspicion on who Byron will target. And no, I’m not telling.
Interviewer: And I was hoping for something revealing from you.
Dani: I can reveal with certainty that whoever he targets will thank him. After they’ve been married for a year or two. Or more. Braydon and I are thinking about waiting until our fifth anniversary to thank him.
Interviewer: I think he’d say he didn’t need any thanks. Well, other than a baby to bounce on his knee.
Dani: I think you’re right. *checks incoming text message* Listen, I need to run. Hauk says Sophie’s not feeling well. It was great catching up with you.
Well, I didn’t get anything real revealing, but my guess from the look on Dani’s face is that Hauk will be one of Byron’s next target. I wonder who he’ll match with him, though.
