Is there such a thing as a perfect marriage?

After almost twenty years with her husband, Charles, Katherine Stamos finds herself at sea. What has happened to the closeness and passion she and Charles once shared? Her father suggests the perfect solution: a cruise aboard Alexandra's Dream--an opportunity to escape their everyday lives and reconnect with one another.

Once aboard ship, it's still hard to leave their work behind. And much of what Katherine most wants to hear remains unsaid. She begins to think it is perhaps foolish to want to relive the heady feeling of first love. Maybe those emotions are only for the young.

And then she meets June and Albert, an elderly couple who--after decades of marriage--still find magic and excitement in everything they do together. Their example makes Katherine wonder if it is possible for the love she shares with Charles to be perfect, even if she and Charles are not...

Meet the Author




Cindi believes in love at first sight, good chocolate, cold champagne, that people who don't like animals can't be trusted, and that God obviously has a sense of humor. She also believes in writing fun, sexy romances about people she hopes readers will fall in love with.

Blessed with an overactive imagination and a love of reading, Cindi wrote her first story at age eight about the family's Siamese cat. At age 12 she submitted her first manuscript, hand-written and illustrated with crayon drawings, to Little, Brown and Company. She received a very kind rejection letter advising her to study hard and keep working and one day she might be a real writer.

In addition to writing, Cindi enjoys reading, quilting, gardening, hiking, and downhill skiing. She lives in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado with her husband, who she met on a blind date and agreed to marry six weeks later, and three spoiled dogs.

Cindi loves to hear from readers. Email her at Cmyers1@aol.com.

    A deep drama that is quite good

    As the public relations director Katherine Stamos is well aware of the fun of cruising the Mediterranean on the Alexandra's Dream although she has not done so. She decides a cruise is perfect to bring a positive uplift to her boring marriage of twenty years. She persuades her workaholic spouse Charles to get away with her on the luxury ship.------------------ However, in spite of the delightful setting and Katherine¿s efforts, Charles cannot leave his work behind. He spends much of the time on his projects. Disappointed, Katherine turns elsewhere on the ship for entertainment and begins to consider leaving Charles though she loves him. Charles is totally shocked that Katherine is considering a divorce as he never saw it coming because he was to busy with his work.-------------------- A PERFECT MARRIAGE is an interesting look at marital relationship that after two decades has become stale and stuck in a rut. Whereas Katherine sees a dying marriage, Charles remains ignorant until he may be too late. Filled with angst, Karen Kendall provides a deep drama that is quite good when it homes in on the lead couple, but loses some sailing speed with other ship board sidebars.-------------- Harriet Klausner
