When a middle-aged woman seeks to satisfy her own neglected needs, her world turns amusingly complicated.
At fifty-five years old, Nan Marino is totally content tending her garden, watching her grandchildren, taking weekly walks with her two best friends, and keeping a clean house. Oh, and talking to Martin, her dead ex-husband. She either confides in him with all her problems or rails against him for leaving her for a younger woman.
Nan's tidy life is ticking away just fine until an unexpected trip to Kauai with her friend Myra takes her out of her comfort zone and propels her into the company of Myra's forty-one-year-old son, Jake. The attraction between them is palpable. Despite every effort to dampen her feelings, Nan cannot resist him, and her predictable world turns upside down when she tries to keep her love life to herself.
Confiding in Martin is not just a romantic comedy. It is also a story about a woman who, as a result of her association with a younger man, comes to realize by taking care of everyone else’s needs over the years, she has failed to take care of her own.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I highly recommend this book. I've enjoyed all of this author's previous books, and this is no exception. The subject matter takes a turn from previus works, but as usual, the characters are wonderfully developed people you would like to get to know. The story of Nan's and Jake's romance is warmly humerous, a little spicy, and a little quirky. She talks to her dead ex-husband after all. If you enjoyed the paranormal in the author's previous books, there is some of that here, too. It is a great book to take to bed and read. I love the descriptions of beautiful places in the Northwest.
