Circus in a Shot Glass
By Beth Overmyer
For someone who works around mementos of the past, Scotch doesn’t remember much of anything that came before three years ago. She’s drinking herself to an early grave, but when an Englishman shows up, Scotch decides to try to sober up and remember her past so she doesn’t lose this connection she feels with him.
Ardal works in the shop next door. His displays of kindness toward her grow, and Scotch can’t help but wonder why he is interested in a drunk like her.
Can Scotch get her act together, or will a shot glass cause her to lose the best thing that ever happened to her?
