For What It's Worth by Karey White

Twenty-four year-old, Abby Benson has dreams of owning her own wedding cake shop. An inheritance from her aunt gives her the ability to make those dreams come true. She hires Dane, a handsome contractor, to help her get the bakery up and running and soon they’re moving toward their own happy ending.

Unsure what to charge for her cakes, Abby has a crazy idea to let the customer decide what they think their cake is worth. This plan has its ups and downs, but the novelty of the idea makes her a local celebrity. When she is interviewed on television about the unusual idea, business booms and Abby has cake adventures she never dreamed possible. But as her fame grows, Abby is swept up in a whirlwind that threatens everything she values. With the challenges that face her, will she be able to determine what is worth the most?

Dane made circles with his thumb on my hand and then pulled my hand up and kissed it.“So, my uncle in Portland just bought an old craftsman home that he wants to restore.”

“I didn’t know he was a builder.”
“He’s not. He’s a banker. He just likes what I’ve done with mine, so when he found a good deal on one down there, he snatched it up. He called this week to see if I wanted to come down there for a few months and be the general contractor for the restoration.”
“Oh,” I said. I felt like the wind was knocked out of me. “How long would you be gone?”
“If I moved down there and took on the job, I’d be gone at least two or three months.”
I took a deep breath and blew it out slowly. “Do you want to do it?”
“That’s just it. I don’t think I do. I told him I’d be glad to come down and work with whoever he finds, maybe spend a few days every couple of weeks, but I told him this wasn’t really a good time for me to leave.” I started breathing again. I looked at Dane and found that he was watching me intently. “Did I tell him the right thing?” he asked.
What did that even mean? Was he asking me if he should go? Of course I didn’t want him to go. Was he hinting at something bigger? It seemed like he was.
“Yeah, I think you did,” I said. I hugged his arm and leaned my head on his shoulder. He kissed my hair.
“Good. I was hoping so.”
