Overview

You nearly killed me!"

The last in a series of wrong turns propels Callie Callahan directly into the path of Vicki Browning’s speedboat. Her long-anticipated return to the lake of her childhood results in an uncomfortable tie to a woman she’s not sure she wants to call a friend.

It’s the story of her life. She gave up a dependable job for a failing business that has wiped out her savings. Her nights have been lonely since her marriage ended eight years ago. Providing for her two teenagers is increasingly difficult when her business partner is spending the last money in the till.

Hoping to make a smart choice for once, she rents the upstairs of her farmhouse to Meg Klein. While the vexatious Vicki stirs up a hornet’s nest of feelings in Callie, it’s the elusive, sensuous Meg who transforms these unexpected feelings into a physical reality Callie can’t ignore. Finally, Callie feels as if her life could head in the right direction—if only she knew which way to turn!

Jackie Calhoun (Roommates, Seasons of the Heart) returns with a down-to-earth story of a woman struggling to find the right path-and the right woman-to finally make sense of her life.

Just About Write
R. Lynne - October, 2008: Calhoun has again given her readers a character with whom we can identify. Callie is as real as our best friend or the woman next door. As she struggles through her financial and emotional crisis, we care. Wrong Turns is an extremely enjoyable read, and lives up to the high standards Calhoun has always set for herself..

    The main character is irritating

    Callie Callahan is a divorced mother with two children and the part owner of a store that is failing. She is vacationing at a lake that her family often visited in her childhood to try and think things through and decide where her life is heading. Her life nearly ends when Vicki Browning nearly runs over her with her boat. Can anything go right in her life? After years of being single, Callie finds herself being drawn to Vicki in a way she never imagined. In an effort to bring in some extra money, Callie rents the second floor of her farmhouse to Meg Klein, a quiet woman who excites Callie's passions in a very real way. Now Callie is involved with two women and she doesn't want to be a lesbian. She doesn't know which way to turn, but both of them seem wrong in some way.

    This is a difficult book to read because Callie is a really irritating character. Her kids are out of control and getting into trouble, which she can't see even though she's a counselor. Sometimes it's hard to tell who is more spoiled, her or the kids. She falls in love with a woman who is just trying to be nice to her and then turns to Vicki who is unbelievably pushy. Callie is totally unaware of other people's feelings or needs and all she seems to care about is the cabin on the lake.

    Jackie Calhoun is a more experienced writer than this book indicates. The story jumps from one topic to another and changes direction before a scene is finished. The characters aren't fully developed and the clichés are plentiful. For example, after sleeping with a woman one night, Callie is ready for the U-Haul the next day. If the reader can get past Callie's annoying behavior, it's a fair story, but it could have been better.
