Overview


Treading lightly had never been Janine Ruvacado's (pronounced: rude avocado) philosophy…

The bestselling writer (former) had a way of grabbing life and wrestling it to the ground. Only these days, the wrestling was getting tiresome. If her crazy, passive-aggressive ex-husband wasn't cooking something up to badger her with, then her mother, Betty Black (the anti-Betty White) was calling to remind her of her shortcomings. Her son, her pride and joy, was becoming a teen (and everyone knows what that means).

The icing on the cake, though, was when Harvey, her wellmeaning doctor, decided to blackmail her into, of all things, exercising because he'd diagnosed her with osteoporosis. Wasn't her life enough to manage?

So, Janine bought herself a membership to the local gym, and started walking on the treadmill. Surprisingly, a whole new world opened up with each step she took…and that had a lot to do with the man walking right next to her.

    insightful character study

    Not known for a layback approach to life, bestselling writer Janine Ruvacadois is stunned with Dr. Harvey¿s medical finding that she suffers from sever osteoporosis that could easily lead to her being wheelchair bound. She feels this is not an opportune time to worry about breaking bones as her son is turning into an evil teen and her mom is driving her crazy alas part of the woes of the sandwiched. Even her ex is trying to cook his way back into her life. --- However, Dr. H forces Janine to do more than just reassess her lifestyle of taking the hill at any cost. Besides diet and medicine, she begins an exercise program to at least prevent any further damage to her skeletal structure especially her spine. As she works out, she meets Tom Kennedy who finds her attractive and brings encouragement to a still upset Janine. --- TREADING LIGHTLY may be a Harlequin Next tale, but it is not a romance instead the story line focuses on a fortyish woman needing to adjust how she lives due to osteoporosis. The story line provides the audience plenty of information on this somewhat common crippling illness though at times the amount slows down the pace of a solid character study. Janine is terrific with her efforts to change from a drill instructor into a mellow mushroom as she tries to learn to tread lightly. --- Harriet Klausner
