Overview

A brilliant movie career, two adoring husbands — none of it is enough to erase the memory of Ariel Hart’s one true love. Back when she was plain, shy Aggie Bixby, a dark-eyed young man named Felix touched her heart…then vanished from her life.
Now, she’s about to do something shocking and outrageous — sell her house and leave Hollywood behind. Making her new home in the quiet town of Chula Vista, she meets Lex Sanders, a wealthy rancher and breeder of Arabian horses. Ariel sees something familiar in his smoldering eyes — something that triggers long-buried memories of a love so pure and so perfect,
it couldn’t possibly last…
Or could it?

Hollywood actress Ariel Hart is ready for some major changes in her life. So she sells everything and moves to Chula Vista--the place where she was once truly happy, back when she was plain Aggie Bixby, and passionately in love with a boy named Felix. When she arrives, she meets wealthy rancher Lex Sanders. But there's something familiar about his eyes. Original.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
When Ariel Hart, a middle-aged movie star, suddenly realizes she won't be offered any more roles, she sets out on a series of zany maneuvers to begin a new career, finally buying a San Diego trucking company (``Able Body Trucking''). Between lessons in truck driving and martial arts, she searches for her lost love of 34 years before. In the meantime, Ariel also strikes up a romance with an avocado rancher with a past. When his enemies sabotage the trucking company, a host of Hollywood stars come to the rescue and long-lost lovers reunite to live happily ever after. A wild and crazy heroine and slapstick humor aren't what one expects from a Michaels (Dear Emily) novel, but they make for a memorable reading experience. (Feb.)

Meet the Author

FERN MICHAELS is the USA Today and New York Times bestselling author of the Sisterhood series, Mr. and Miss Anonymous, Up Close and Personal, and dozens of other novels and novellas. There are over seventy million copies of her books in print. Fern Michaels has built and funded several large day-care centers in her hometown, and is apassionate animal lover who has outfitted police dogs across the country with special bulletproof vests. She shares her home in South Carolina with her four dogs and a resident ghost named Mary Margaret.

Biography

Born Mary Ruth Kuczkir in Hastings, Pennsylvania, Fern Michaels was married and the mother of five before she embarked on her long, successful writing career – a career that began with something midway between a challenge and a command. When her youngest child went off to kindergarten, Michaels's husband imperiously ordered her (in just so many words) to get off her ass and get a job. Long years in the domestic trenches had left her short on marketable skills, so she decided trade off her lifelong love of reading and write a book. Just like that. The domineering, unsupportive husband is history. And Michaels has gone on to pen bestselling romance after bestselling romance. Just like that..

With typical modesty, Michaels does not claim to be a great writer; however, she admits proudly to being a born storyteller. Her bulging bookshelf proves she is all over the map, producing with equal facility hot historicals, lighthearted contemporary capers, adrenaline-laced thrillers, and heartwarming tales of family and friendship. She is especially adept at writing stories about women who prevail in hard times – a reflection, perhaps, of her own struggles in her marriage and early career.

Raised to believe that the fortunate in life have an obligation to give back, Michaels devotes a lot of time to philanthropic concerns. She has established a foundation that grants four-year scholarships to needy students and has set up pre-schools and daycare centers for single mothers. She is also an avid animal lover and has been known to own as many as five dogs at a time.

In 1993, Michaels picked up stakes and moved from her home in New Jersey to a 300-year-old plantation house in Charleston, South Carolina. She and the dogs share the house amicably with a friendly ghost whom Fern has dubbed Mary Margaret. In addition to stopping clocks and moving pillows from room to room, Mary Margaret has been known to occasionally leave flowers on Michaels's nightstand!

Good To Know

Michaels confesses in our interview: "I'm a junk food junkie and a chocoholic. My desk drawers have more junk food in them than paper and pens. I chomp and chew all day long. At night I get up and eat Marshmallow Fluff right out of the jar. In between eating, I write."

Her first "sort of, kind of job" was in market research. Michaels recounts the gig's low-point in our interview: "I had a partner and we were testing a new pressurized drain cleaner. All you had to do was put this can in the drain, squeeze and supposedly the drain would open right up. It did, all right.

"The whole wall collapsed, and stuff that was in there for a hundred years flew everywhere. The lady didn't tell us the drain backed up to her kitchen drain and disposal. The company didn't care that we smelled like a sewer or that our clothes were ruined. The lady got a new bathroom, and we both got fired."

Michaels reveals some of her sources of inspiration: "Inspiration comes from everywhere. The title for Finders Keepers came from a cartoon with two chipmunks that my grandson was watching. I had a title but no story. I finally came up with one to fit that wonderful title.

"Names for characters sometime come from television. I had a character named Metaxis which is odd to begin with. There is a news anchor on T.V. who has that same last name. Sometimes it will just be a word someone says in passing, something I read or saw. There's no rhyme or reason to it. It's almost like, okay, I need something here, stay alert and it will happen."

    As usual Fern Michaels has another bestseller. She weaves a story and you do not want to put the book down. I really liked the story line.

    Another fun read by Fern Michaels. It was a bit hard to follow at first but definitely had some intrigue that kept me reading. I enjoyed the storyline and always enjoy a good ending. Some crude moments and bedroom details.

    Some unbelievable things happen but it is still fun to read.

    Enjoyable--but unbelievable??

    This book was entertaining and a good read. It is hard to buy into the part of the story that two people who were once in love and married each other would not recognize each other--even if it is many years later. Other than that part of the story it had many good qualities, including the friendship between Ariel and Dolly, and the relationship between Ariel and her dog, Snookie.

    NICE READING

    This book was a nice book to read. It was slow in spots and there was no mystery involved. Just a good book to read at the beach.
