I Love You, Mr. Harvey

Synopsis

At her new job, Amanda finds everyone rude—especially Terry, who makes jokes at her expense. Mr. Harvey is nice and Amanda falls for him. At the office dance, he barely notices her and she peforms a song to get attention. It is dismal and Terry jokes, but Mr. Harvey dances with her—before saying he must go home to his fiancée. Amanda is stunned, but then Terry apologies and says he fancies her. It breaks the ice and Terry walks Amanda home.

The Shining Rocks…the Singing Sea

Synopsis

On a break from lonely city living, Tracy meets Rob and they agree to carefree 'no regrets' holiday, before going their separate ways. On their last day, they go to Wishing Bay where a couple in love will 'see the shining hills and hear the singing sea'. Tracy wishes the legend is true, but finds an ordinary bay and doesn't get the sign she is looking for to break her agreement with Rob. She leaves on the early ferry the next day, regretting she won't see Rob again. But when she gets home, he has tracked her down, determined to never leave again.

Notes

The first sentence calls the lead male Bob, but he is called Rob in the rest of the story.
