Can you hear it now? YOU BET!

SHE DIDN'T SAY NO by Charmaine Gordon

She Didn’t Say No by Charmaine Gordon is now available as an AUDIOBOOK on Audible, iTunes, and on Amazon! Also in All Ebook Formats and Print Editions.

Nineteen year old Grace Meredith didn’t say no to the Big Man On Campus, Scott Dwyer. And then her life changed...Grace makes her way to a new town and, with the kindness of strangers, establishes a business called The Pet Emporium where she grooms, what else? Dogs and cats.
Years later, a too-close encounter of an unpleasant kind with a skunk and Scott’s German Shepherd reunites the former lovers.
What happens in between are their stories of beginnings and endings and love lost, then found.


5.0 out of 5 stars Winning story about hope, love and survival February 27, 2014
by Judith Audevard
So nice to read a book where the heroine is treated kindly, has special loves and successfully survives life traumas. I loved that everything about Grace Meredith and her surroundings were clearly described. From her early college days to becoming a mature woman, the reader is kept involved and is pleasantly surprised with the outcome.
She Didn’t Say No is narrated and produced by Julie Sears, professional voiceover artist and narrator, residing in California, and co-owner of Sears Voices.

Lots of laughs for the holidays!

What happens when the wrong Christmas present gets into the hands of the office rake? Adam Grant is holding high the suggestive thongs Evie Strand meant for her best friend. Aware that Evie’s deeply embarrassed, Adam resolves to make it up to her. Who knew where a simple dinner date would lead?

Here's a snippet fromA Gift for Adam

Adam held high the pink Tuesday thong. He could hardly read it aloud for breaking up with laughter. “Tuesday: Wish you were…?” The question mark below the lettering left little room for confusion about the intent—it would nestle comfortably over the wearer’s mound.
More hoots and hollers followed. The powder blue Monday thong had been more shocking, probably because it was the first one Adam had held up, or maybe because it said “Don’t Dribble” across the front.
Evie pushed her chair back from the long banquet table where she sat with her fellow Grafton Department Store employees. Leslie grabbed her wrist. “Don’t let him get the best of you. Mistakes happen. At least half the people here think you did this on purpose to get the rake’s goat. If you leave, they’ll know you screwed up.”
Evie gulped and nodded at her department manager. She drew in a deep breath. “All right.”
She glanced back at Adam in time to seem him holding up the yellow Wednesday thong: “Kiss My…” with a broken arrow pointing suggestively toward the backside.
