DINNER AT SIX
IF I WAS ORGANIZING A DINNER PARTY THE FICTIONAL CHARACTERS I’D WANT AT MY TABLE.
Ohhh, this could be the best dinner ever. So many choices….no one said how big a dinner party but I’ll go with a table of eight.
I’d like to sit down with Ian and Beth MacKenzie and talk to them about how far we have come and yet how far we have to go helping people with autism. I would ask Ian for advice on what would have made life easier for him growing up and what it is about Beth, if he could define it, that allows him to be present.
For a friend to chat with about life as a psychic Abby Cooper and her hottie boyfriend Dutch Rivers would be the next couple I’d invite. While Amy Haskel from Diana Peterfreund’s Ivy League novels started out kind of annoying me, the character grew on me. The series takes Amy through her college years and a bit beyond. What I’d like is to be able to ask Amy what has happened in oh, say the past ten years—has she been called back to Eli University for any reason to help out the current society members. To my mind that opens the door to some pretty interesting mysteries to be solved. I’d invite one of the Argeneau men who haven’t met their mate yet for her date. I’m sure Etienne would know which male relative would be a good choice.
And my date? These days it would be Rick Hansen. He’s been clamoring for me to finish up his story and maybe sitting down to dinner and talking about those last few twists and turns might get me back in gear to tell his tale.
Our menu would be similar to the dinner I gave Kim and Chris Turner in IT TAKES TWO—Caesar salad, escargot followed by a lobster bisque. The main course would be Beef Wellington and fresh asparagus and for dessert baked Alaska and lattes.
What characters would you like to invite to dinner and why?
