Overview


Falling in love was easy for Chloe. She met Evan, a handsome Australian doctor, and felt sure he was the man for her. But Chloe's whirlwind romance ended abruptly when Evan left to work overseas. For comfort Chloe turned to her new friend Daniel Bennett. When she discovered she was pregnant, Daniel married her, despite Chloe's feelings for Evan.

More than twenty years later "twenty good years" Chloe finds herself once again torn between the two men. Daniel, with whom she's raised a daughter and shared the everyday problems and triumphs of life. And Evan, the man who—she believes…has always held her heart.

Only now, after two decades of marriage and a crisis, does Chloe learn what true love is...and what it isn't.

Meet the Author


Joan was born in Vancouver, Canada, and spent an idyllic childhood on a rural property near the ocean. Much of her free time in those early years was spent on horseback or perched in trees, dreaming the hours away. There was no library in town but Joan's mother, an avid reader, took her to the bookmobile and every week Joan would stagger out with an armload of books.

When she was eight or nine she decided she wanted to be a writer and for years filled countless "scribblers" with stories, poems, and cartoons. Despite those early dreams, the environmental movement of the early '70s engaged her youthful zeal and she turned to science in university. Eventually Joan earned her Masters of Science in marine biology, after taking a couple of years off to travel, first backpacking around Europe then sailing through the South Pacific. She worked for about 10 years as an environmental biologist both in Australia and Canada in government, university, and private consulting.

When she met her husband they were flatmates in a communal house in Vancouver. They shared living space for a year, each lamenting to friends the derth of good romantic prospects. Then he traveled throughout Asia while Joan traveled to Nepal and Thailand. When they returned they took one look at each other and thought, "Hmm, where have you been all my life?" They were married in December, in a blizzard, and not long after that migrated to the sunny shores of Australia.

Joan loved her work as a biologist, whether it involved breaking through the sea ice to scuba dive in Atlantic Canada or being bitten to a swollen pulp by black flies in northern British Columbia while studying wild salmon populations. She won't even mention the agonies of fear she suffered at encountering poisonous snakes while monitoring rivers and streams in Australia.

But it wasn't until she rediscovered writing, and romance writing in particular, that she realized the difference between a career and a calling. Her first book she wrote longhand in a spiral notebook through nine months of morning sickness with a hyperactive toddler at her feet. But she never doubted that the effort was worth it, or that someday she would be published. It took seven complete manuscripts before she got that magical call from an editor.

Now her children are all in school and Joan writes full-time. Unless she's close to a deadline, she tries to keep evenings and weekends free for her family, believing that maintaining a balance in life is important. Joan's other interests include gourmet cooking, swimming, reading, walking, and people watching. She firmly believes one must experience life in order to write about it, and takes every opportunity to travel and try new things.

    This is an interesting contemporary tale

    She was making it with two lovers, carpenter Daniel Bennett and Dr. Evan Cutler, when ballet dancer Chloe Bennett learns she is pregnant. She is not sure who the father of her child is, but refuses to push DNA testing on either potential dad. Instead she decides to marry Daniel.------------------- Evan is not pleased with being the rejected one. He rejects disappearing and instead is always around Chloe, which angers Daniel even if he and Evan are ¿friends¿ too. Although tempted over the years she remains faithful to her spouse, but he assumes she is cheating and questions whether their child is from his seed. Although ready to call its quits on her marriage, Chloe takes one last step to save it DNA testing that she prays proves Daniel is the father of her beloved Brianna.--------------- This is an interesting contemporary tale in which the audience will wonder why it took nineteen years before the adult triangle decided to use DNA testing to learn the truth as to who sired Brianna even if explanations abound throughout the plot. The key is that the lead trio seems genuine with flaws that enhance their relationship conflicts leading to a fascinating character study that will have readers wondering just who Chloe will select the second time around.------------- Harriet Klausner
