Carlene Cooper was your average teenager. Average, that is, except for her relationship with Josh McCarthy, member of teen mega-group, South Station Boyz. Young love blossomed at a chance meeting when Carly was a senior in high school and Josh was just discovering what stardom really meant. Despite their chemistry, it was no surprise to anyone when their very different lives took very different paths a few months down the road.

Years later, their paths cross again, and they must decide if the spark they felt back then is strong enough to rekindle. Josh has built a name for himself in show business, but Carly, too, has planted roots as a journalist in New York City. Will they be able to successfully merge their lives and overcome the obstacles that drove them apart a decade earlier?

Just as she comes to the decision that will change their lives one way or the other, tragedy strikes and Detective Trey Foster enters her life unexpectedly. Now, Carly is faced with another choice. Will she choose the man she's spent her whole life loving, or will she push it aside for a chance at happiness out of the spotlight?

About the Author

Mel Henry is a die-hard romantic with a flair for the dramatic. At the age of six, she wrote a children's book based on the true story of the family of rabbits she rescued from her farm pond. It was a contender for a Newbery Award until the board found out she'd actually thrown the rabbits in the pond before said rescue. Since that time, she's written dozens of short stories, passive-aggressive notes, math equations, restaurant reviews, romance novels and, most recently, the groundbreaking how-to manual on suing small town car lots entitled, "You Won't Screw Me Without Buying Me Dinner First!" She was in the running for the Nobel Peace prize until she found out about it and told the committee, "Peace this, B*tches!" while throwing up what can only be described as Polish gang signs. She can be found most often in her war room swilling Absolut and Tweeting like a crazed hermit in solitary confinement. She's devoted to her fans, followers and anyone who takes this bio seriously, as the only part that's true is the sentence about vodka and Twitter. And possibly the passive-aggressive notes.

This story spans a lifetime. I thought it was amazing to see how the crinkles and crevices of life work over time.  This is story of love and how it changes as people grow. There was so much feeling in the lives of Carly and Josh. I had tears and at times I wanted to scream and shout then I wanted to slap people.  Watch out for the twist, it’s a doozy.  I was gifted this book in exchange for an honest review.

My summers are always hectic, but I found myself squeezing in time to read Mel Henry's debut novel; risking motion sickness while reading on car trips, foregoing the mounting laundry until my family complained they had nothing to wear, and putting off my own projects—finishing the book took precedence. The story line will strike a chord within most adults about the "what-ifs" we come to struggle with while juggling a successful career, a satisfying relationship, and learning who we are as individuals and what we need out of life. "Distance and Time" explores how we often feel we so desperately want something in our life only to learn it isn't always in our best interest to pursue it. These are, indeed, the hardest lessons learned. The turning point for the main character comes late in the book and part of me would have liked to have seen a little more of the new relationship exploration once things came together, but, all in all, a good debut.
