Book Excerpt:

Jess laughed. "Well, then, I guess we'll have to go to the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty, Rockefeller Center, and Central Park." She sighed happily and dramatically, staring off into space as if daydreaming. "Central Park is my favorite," she breathed dreamily. Will snorted and laughed, and Jess did, too.   
"Hey, you aren't thinking of going to Central Park without me, are you? After all that grief you gave me and Jackie?" Eddy's incredulous voice came from the doorway of the kitchen, his amused smile crooked on his face and his brow wrinkled with confusion as he bemusedly watched the scene before him.  

Rolling her eyes, Jess said, "Eddy, I did not give you grief. You gave yourself grief. Your guilt consumed you." Like Will just moments before, Eddy snorted before laughing. It was hard not to when Jess’ voice dropped an octave for emphasis.  

"Right, because we all know how consumed by guilt Eddy constantly is," Jackie sarcastically commented before appearing behind him. Like always, Jess had to control her facial expression before anyone saw the quick expression of dislike, but a quick glance at Will showed that someone did. With an almost imperceptible shake of her head, she indicated that they'd speak later, and he nodded in comprehension, his nod almost imperceptible as well.  

Cheerfully, Mrs. Bishop quipped, "Good morning, Jackie. How are you?" Like always, Jess was disgusted by how easily the Bishop family accepted Jackie as one of their own; in their eyes, she was as good as their daughter-in-law. It had taken years for them to accept Jess like they accepted Jackie, and sometimes she wondered if they even did now.
