Carolyn Brady sucked in her cheeks and let out a long slow breath. The building wasn’t exactly what she had expected but it was kind of appropriate. Her smart sunburn orange skirt suit and pillbox hat matched the auburn red of her hair, but definitely made her look out of place next to the crumby […]

Someone dropped me a quick line to say they hated cornertime almost as much as getting a spanking, but that both were so good for her.
