Hello and welcome to my snippet!
Holiday Weekend has hit the Coming Soon page so now I get to share all the pretties L.C. Chase made for the story!
Next week is Thanksgiving here in the US so today’s snippet takes place very early on Thanksgiving morning. It’s from Ryan’s POV; he and Glenn are volunteering. Larry is coordinating the meal prep, and has just asked Ryan to make the pies. I think that’s all you really need to know for this one.
Larry dumped most of the contents of a large bag of flour into the bowl of a mixer with a fragrant yeast mixture in it. “All four or one at a time. It’s your show, kid.”
“Why do you think I can—”
“Because you didn’t say you can’t.” Larry winked and pulled the bowl off the stand and into his arms. He started stirring with a thick wooden spoon, muscles bulging as he worked.
Thanks for reading!

Holiday Weekend, Buchanan House: Book Five
Ryan Orchard moved from small-town Idaho to Portland almost two years ago and still feels like a hick. When Paulie Nesbitt dumped him, he wasn’t even surprised. Despite losing twenty-five pounds since then, Ryan’s confidence is nonexistent and his life has stalled. Not only is he convinced the career he wants is beyond his reach, he’s given up on relationships. A new job at a familiar restaurant—and his gorgeous coworker—could be just what Ryan needs to believe in himself again.
Glenn Hernandez might be the only nineteen-year-old in Portland who dreads his days off. Between his horrible housing situation and the ever-present temptation to crawl back into the bottle, Glenn prefers to keep busy. He volunteers at the Elliott Foundation House, a homeless shelter helping LGBTQ sex workers. As an alum of the shelter, Glenn finds it hard to leave his past behind. But when the new server at the trendy restaurant where he works catches Glenn’s eye and works his way into his heart, Glenn finally has a reason to start a new life.
nice, very visual, yes, I can smell the bread 🙂
Thank you! Now I really want some homemade bread. ❤
“Because you didn’t say you can’t.”
You have no idea how many things I found myself volunteered for because of something similar.
Haha, I might have an idea… I’ve found myself in that situation before too. Write what you know, yeah? *lol*
Heh, that’s one way to get people to help! 🙂
This is fun (as I come back from a day of doing stuff I got volunteered for).
Fun snippet I love that line “because you didn’t say you can’t”
I have to agree with the previous commenters. I also have found myself in that position too often. lovely snippet to start us off
