She whispered. "Okay, I guess," Suzanne whispered back. "I can't stop thinking about it. I keep expecting her to be here. " Lucy nodded. She felt the same. It was as if Amanda was in the room, her silent presence upstaging the star performer. If Amanda had been here right now, Lucy was sure she'd be sitting up front, sneering--dismissing Cara as all flash and no fiber. Lucy herself was reserving judgment. Cara seemed a bit unsure of her subject matter, but the dreadful news must have shaken her, too.
The reporter from the Plum Harbor Times had arrived. Lucy saw Maggie and Cara pose for a photo in front of the flower arrangement. Cara held up a copy of her book and they both smiled for the camera. Everything was going perfectly. At precisely eleven, Maggie stepped in front of the group and gently raised her hands for quiet, revealing her past life as a schoolteacher, Lucy thought. The chattering voices stopped. "Thank you all for coming to the Black Sheep this morning," she began. "We try to present speakers and classes that will enrich and inspire your love of knitting.

" "I bet you will," Lucy agreed. Cara's appearance would be good publicity for the shop. It didn't take much to appear above the fold in the Plum Harbor Times.
