In my Teaser, Avel Ames III is driving his Packard down Minnehaha Avenue, when he sees Harriet Dobbin. It's love at first sight. Avel is talking to Harriet.
"Not that I don't like spunk," said Avel, "for I truly do. The moment I saw you coming out of that bakery, swinging your arms as if you were the bantamweight champion of the world, I knew you and I were going to have a very colorful life together."

Here's the synopsis:
Patty Jane Dobbin should have known better than to marry a man as gorgeous as Thor Rolvaag, but she was too smitten to think twice. Yet nine months into their marriage, with a baby on the way, Thor is gone. It’s a good thing Patty Jane has her irrepressible sister, Harriet, to rely on. For it’s been said that a fine haircut can cure any number of ills, and before long the Minnesota sisters have opened a neighborhood beauty parlor complete with live harp music and an endless supply of delicious Norwegian baked goods. It’s a wonderful, warmhearted place where you can count on good friends, lots of laughter, tears, and comfort when you need it—and the unmistakable scent of somebody getting a permanent wave. . . .
