"So, Tim, we should be ready to open Memorial Day weekend, right?" I asked as I did a walk through in the Joliet foundation location. "Doesn't this seem like it's déjà vu?"
"Because it is," Tim snorted. "However, no psycho brothers to mess this building."
"Thank God," I grumbled. "How are the wedding plans going?"
"Excellent, actually. Rose and I are having a combined bachelor/bachelorette party soon. Rose is sending out invitations as we speak."
"Shouldn't your best man and maid of honor be planning the bachelor/bachelorette parties?" I asked, arching a brow over my sunglasses.
"You and Bella are too square," Tim laughed. "At least for what Rose and I want to do."
I shot him a look. "Is it legal?"
"Of course it's legal!" Tim snorted. "Rose wants to go to a strip club."
"You're kidding," I said flatly. "Why?"
"Because she's Rose," Tim shrugged. "And it's a strip club. Not a male strip club, one with naked women."
"Tim, you're soon-to-be wife is weird," I chuckled.
"She says it's research for her next novel," Tim said dryly.
