Apple-achian Treasure: Erin is back on her feet again with the opening of Auntie Clem’s Bakery version 2.0. But her new partner is not the easiest person in the world to get along with and there are a lot of bumps in the road.
Reading about a secret treasure in Clementine’s papers, Erin decides to distract herself by putting back on her detective hat and she and her friends try their hands at solving the clues. Pretty soon, everyone knows that they are treasure hunting and things get interesting.
The race is on, but is the prize worth the price they will end up paying?
“Vic glanced at the clock on the wall. “I thought Charley said she was going to come in this morning to help out.”
Erin didn’t look at Vic and tried to keep her expression neutral. “That’s what she said.”
“But you didn’t expect her to get here, did you?”
“Uh… no. She’s really not a morning person, and this is early even for morning people. Maybe if Charley came in and helped out now, and then went home and went to bed…”
Vic chuckled. “She’s like a teenager. If she wants to be a business owner, she’s going to have to make a few changes to her lifestyle.”
Erin turned on one of the mixers, then went around to the ovens, setting the preheat temperatures. It was the coolest part of the day, but that was about to end. Once they had the ovens going, even the best air conditioning wasn’t going to keep it cool.
“It’s supposed to be fall, but I’ll be glad when the temperature starts to drop.”
“Still got a ways to go before then.”
They worked in silence for a few minutes. “When do you think Charley is going to show up?” Vic asked.
Erin straightened and looked at her. “Are you trying to get me to badmouth my new boss?”
“She isn’t your boss, she’s your partner.”
