Miranda Blue Calling
Miranda Blue, as quirky and engaging as her name suggests, spends
her days as a telephone companion to the elderly and infirm. She
keeps the details of each client on a series of index cards and
knows the cares, concerns and interests of each one, providing them
with friendship and intellectual stimulation while struggling
valiantly to keep the details of her own personal life private.
It's a job, and so much more, for which Miranda is perfectly
suited. She cares about her clients and makes it a point to be
there for them. It's also a business that allows her to be her own
boss and live in the middle of nowhere.
Now why, you might ask, would a young, attractive woman choose to
remove herself from society and reside in the small Colorado town
of Otnip (yeah, it's Pinto spelled backwards) away from all human
contact except that which she has with her clients? Perhaps to
escape from a know-it-all sister or recover from a string of failed
relationships with bad boys, the most recent of which culminated in
physical abuse. The thing is, while Miranda Blue is trying to get
away from it all, her only neighbor, a sexy, single greenhouse
farmer, is busy trying to get close to her.
Billy --- a widower, grower of hydroponic tomatoes, teacher of
meditation and keeper of fish --- has made a poor first impression
on Miranda but a great impression on her dogs. Along with
perpetuating his bad boy image by telling her that he grows
marijuana, he has the misfortune to be hauled off by the police in
front of Miranda's wide and wondering eyes. That's enough for her!
No matter that he's the most interesting, attractive (and
irritating) man she's seen in a while --- her resolution stands. No
more bad boys!
Billy is not taking no for an answer, though, and he'll do whatever
it takes to get close to the intriguing and enchanting Miranda ---
even if he has to resort to spying on her with a telescope, where
he sees more than he intended, insinuating himself into her life
and even using her dogs to get closer to her. When a woman like
Miranda comes along, a man like Billy will do what it takes to win
You'll enjoy getting to know Miranda and Billy and find yourself
rooting for love to win out in the end as you turn the pages of
MIRANDA BLUE CALLING. Michelle Curry Wright --- a native of
Seattle, Washington and a current resident of Telluride, Colorado,
where she lives with her husband Gary and daughter Celine ---
brings us an agreeable cast of characters, a quirky heroine and a
charming story of the irresistible power of love.
