A lone tear escaped before she wiped it angrily away. She twirled a finger through the tangled curls of her honeyblond hair and chewed on her bottom lip. Her hazel eyes narrowed as she took the measure of her new inn and of herself. At twenty-eight, she felt both painfully young and old beyond her years.”
