Cordelia waved at him across the room. He headed in her direction with Fiona and Mack in his wake.

When they arrived at the table, Win made a show of kissing Cordelia on the cheek. “How are you, darling?” He sat beside her.

“Lovely now that my handsome husband has joined me.” Cordelia glanced up at Fiona. “Come and sit, my friend. I think I’m going to have to order something that I don’t need to cut.” She lifted her arm in the sling. “I’m not going to be able to use a knife for sure.”

“Darling, you know I’ll cut your steak for you.” Win smiled at Cordelia and patted her good hand that rested on the table.

“Good because I was craving a T-bone so much.” Cordelia smiled over at Mack as he and Fiona took their seats across from the Barringtons. “What kind of meat do you like?”

“I’m a carnivore connoisseur, Mrs. Barrington. I’ll eat any meat that comes along.”

“Please, Mr. Plant, call me Cordelia. My mother—ahem, mother-in-law—is Mrs. Barrington.”

Fiona let out a little gasp. Win stepped on her toe under the table and shook his head. Good Lord, one of these women was going to give away the game and soon if he didn’t watch out. He should have known better than to let a good-looking man like Plant get near Cordelia. She was a hopeless flirt. Always had been.

“Then you must call me Mack.”

“I shall. It’s such a manly name, isn’t it, Fi?” Cordelia nodded at Fiona.

“It sure is and not only that, he’s a macho cop from Chicago.” Fiona smiled at the man seated beside her.
