Editorial Reviews

Rebecca Freeman
Donna is a quirky character and wonderful choice of protagonists. The situation she finds herself in is strange, yet the author does a great job of making it believable. Irony sneaks onto the pages, making an otherwise poignant story humorous and entertaining. I look forward to reading more from Beth Carpenter. - Rebecca Freeman 7/26/12

    Wish it was longer!

    For those who believe in fate - this story confirms it. Some people are just meant to be together - even if it takes years. I can realy see this as a much longer and further developed story. The ending seemed a little abrupt to me but overall the story was very enjoyable.

    Middle age romance that works!

    This is a well developed short story about a 40ish recent divorcee whose husband left her for a 20ish girl in the office.

    The story takes us to Las Vegas where our heroine meets a 50ish gentleman, gets drunk and winds up married. A typical Vegas story to this point but 40isn and 50ish?

    Realizing a mistake has been made, the couple when sober decide to rectify the situation.

    The story takes a spin when the husband suffers a stroke and is rushed to the hospital. Then the families need to be told of the marriage and the stroke, a most interesting development.

    From there the story really evolves with the characters reacting intelligently to the events and the heroine doing some soul searching about her life and her future.

    This book is well worth the read.
