      JUST RIGHT

      Sweet Haven Farm, #3

      by Jessie Gussman

      Sometimes a match that’s all wrong, turns out to be just right. While waiting to audition for a rare tubist seat opening, Avery Williams intends to cheer up her cancer ridden neighbor. She plans a throwback Christmas party in the barn where the sick woman got engaged forty years ago. It will be the highlight of the year, unless the building gets destroyed first. In town for a short while to help his sick mother, Gator Franks expects to grab a side job and make some quick cash to help pay her hospital bills. Unfortunately, he has to get past the ugliest cat he has ever seen, which happens to be attached to a little blonde with sparkling pink fingernails, a city-girl attitude, and a fixation on saving the barn he just contracted to tear down. Slowly, using simple words, Avery explains to the uncouth mountain man—the one with the ferocious, tuba-player-eating dogs—that she can’t have a party in the barn if he bulldozes it first! When circumstances force them to work together, it’s a race to see who will win first, and if they’ll give in to the growing feelings between them.
