Dear Ray by Peter Paylor
Omer Grimes has been trying to see what’s under Nadine’s overalls since far too soon after her late husband, Ray, passed away. But Ray’s been gone for years now, and Omer does have a certain charm if you look hard enough. When Ray died, he left her with an antique store to run that she never once wanted any part of. So if Omer comes in handy, it’s really Ray’s fault. Besides, there’s more to life than just Omer. There’s Essie-Mae Beck who does Shiatzu massage and we all know what that means. There’s Len Morris and Chester and the ghost of Alvin Pugh. And there’s Old Jeeter Collins, the region’s most extensive and keen-eyed collector of exquisite fine china, with his prize-winning pig farm just north of Spruce Hills.
