Who loves her?  the vanilla wedding

Susan writes her story with her doctor’s encouragement to find acceptance and peace over the loss of her husband.  She is working at her uncle’s motel in a small Midwestern town, where she has a lot of time to write and imagines all sorts of things, categorizing people as vanilla, strawberries, and lemon people.

Her story begins when she met Harris, and they planned on getting married.

Susan’s girlfriends and her sister Anna, were trying to get things together early that morning for the wedding in the afternoon.  The dress hadn’t arrived yet; Susan was getting nervous.  So the girlfriends, sister, and Susan were going to take a trip into the cities and get it, and some flowers.  The dress wasn’t ready, so Susan quickly looked around and found another dress almost like that one, and said that it would have to do.  She took it, and ran out, thinking her sister-in-law could do any quick last minute alterations.

Being followed and mimicked by a band, getting lost, losing her checkbook, and other mishaps have Susan wondering why she was going to marry Harris.  She loved Bob; Bob who accepted her crazy bitchy off-the-wall ways.

Susan’s story becomes quite confused, as she is confused, but does end up with Bob for only a short while; as he is in an accident after a short-lived marriage.  Harris, on the other hand, seemed to be playing Susan for an idiot, and had his friends in on the game.

This is the third book in the series.

Sample text:

“Pumpkin, there are a couple of things I need to tell you.”  Mr. Christiansen sighed and looked at the reflection of the setting sun off of the back of the speed limit sign out in front of St.  Olaf’s.  “Sweetie, there’s the possibility that Harris was kidnapped.”

“What?”  Susan asked, covering her mouth.

“Well, sometimes things are not what they seem in business.”

“Daddy, what are you talking about?  You are scaring me now.  Of all the weird things happening to me, please don’t tell me that you also have changed.  Just tell me in a cold, specific way what you are talking about.  I can’t stand any more emotion or mystery today.”

“Susan, when you do really well in business, you not only make a lot of powerful friends, you also tend to make a lot of powerful enemies.  Alexandria may be the Best Little Town in America, like the sign says, but quite a few of the families here know that when you and Harris get married, and our family fortunes are tied together, we’ll have the most votes on both the city council and the chamber of commerce boards.”
