We're taking a break this week from our regular line-up to bring you an excerpt from my new novel, In Search of the Perfect Singing Flamingo. The excerpt is read by the talented Melanie Mallozzi, who made one of my dreams come true by bringing this character to life. She has been a vocal music student for over 15 years and has sung for small audiences. She is developing a plan for an online baking enterprise, getting inspiration from her extensive cookbook collection. Melanie also loves to travel and learn new languages.
Excerpt from In Search of the Perfect Singing Flamingo
Something’s wrong when I arrive at Fresh Us because Riley's at my table and he’s never at my table.
“Hi, Riley. That’s my station.”
Again, Riley says nothing back.
I go right away to tell Martha. She’s talking with Chef and they’re planning out today’s deliveries. Chef winks when he sees me. “Did you need something, Starr?”
