Never give up on a wish for a happy ever after…
Callie Derbyshire has it all: her dream job as a carer at Bay View, finally she has found the love of her life. Everything is perfect.
Ex-partners are insistent on stirring up trouble, and Callie’s favourite resident, Ruby, hasn’t been her usual self.
Callie has the perfect job, notwithstanding having the boss from hell. A natural carer with a great personality, she loves the residents at Bay View Care Home and is kind, patient and considerate.
Ruby is a favourite, a wonderful character who has lived a full, colourful life and has a special place in Callie’s heart. Ruby loves reminiscing with Callie and reliving the past but hasn’t been her usual self lately. Callie enjoys Ruby’s stories and, as she learns more about Ruby’s life, is determined to put the spring back in her step and the smile on her face.
On a personal front, Callie thinks she’s found her Mr Right, an older man who she met through work, until certain things don’t quite add up and she begins to question her year long relationship. She needed someone she could rely on and was willing to take her out.
I blame it on my dad. If he hadn’t died when I was only six, I don’t think I’d have been so obsessed with older men.
Ruby is certain her grandson would be perfect for Callie but Callie is unsure if he even exists. He never seems to show up when Ruby is expecting him and Callie hates to think of her being disappointed.
‘Callie!’ she called. ‘If you really have parted company with your sugar daddy, you could always court my grandson, Rhys.’
I turned to face her. The cheeky grin on her face matched her playful tone. ‘Would this be the illusive grandson who never visits?’
‘It might be.’
‘Are you sure he exists?’
She laughed as she tapped the side of her nose. ‘That’s for me to know and you to find out.’
