Overview

First Kiss is a first person account of a middle-aged widow's coming of age. Darcy McMahon tells her own story as it happens in her journal, the last place besides her heart where she can dialogue with her lost husband Sean. Since his shocking death five years earlier, Darcy has been reclusive but busy studying for her master's degree and raising their son who has just gone off to college. She confides to Sean in her journal, why not do something crazy now? There is no reason not to jump at the chance to study overseas.

It may be scary, but as she's discovered since losing her Sean: you can't let unfounded fears dictate your actions. What Darcy encounters in Madrid is a class full of British men who welcome her into a world filled with the most fun she's ever had in her life.

In First Kiss, Darcy chronicles her fears, her pain and her thrilling discovery that if you dare to step into the unknown, there is life beyond loss.
