A Christmas excerpt:
“Hello—Niko? Maris Graystone here. I’d like to order a pizza. You do deliver on Christmas Eve, don’t you?…Oh, good. Will it be long? An hour? Well, I suppose I can wait. I didn’t know it would be so busy...Okay, yes, I’m ready. Um…I would like one medium pizza with jalapenos, bacon, and double anchovies. Yes, the usual. Ha ha…Oh, really? On Christmas, you only deliver orders of twenty dollars or more? Is that a new policy? Well, I suppose I could get another pizza…hang on.”
She put down the receiver and scanned the menu. Maybe a stromboli? She could have it for lunch tomorrow. No, tomorrow’s Christmas Day. I won’t be here.
She had picked up the phone again when a familiar voice behind her said, “How about a large Meat Lover’s pizza? And a Greek salad. That should put us over the top.”
She whirled. No other voice made her tingle like that. Deep, rich, with highlights of humor and a hint of Canadian diphthongs. “Michael!” She dropped the menu.
