Thursday, December 26, 2013


Escape from her life is what Kim needs. recently separated from her husband, she needs to re assess and re group--so she heads down to Texas to stay with her parents where they now live in a retirement community. Her friend Connie also needs an escape and takes off to California--

Unfortunately the trip to Texas brings back memories from long ago for Kim of which she tries to make sense. The owner of the company that takes care of the gardening at the retirement community takes an instant liking to Kim and is persistent in asking her out. She has her doubts-he is 17 years younger then she is! As all this is happening Kim is trying to find out about Mark, the man she had an affair with so many years ago, who supposedly died and was found in the trunk of his car.

Just as Kim finally agrees to go with Camillo to his home in Mexico for the New Years weekend--and she is finally deciding that maybe age does not matter---they find out something which could shatter all. What they find out devastates both of them. the weekend ends abruptly.

Kim goes back to her job and they are finally at least speaking on the phone--now both trying to figure out what really happened to the man who died. And no, this writer left it hanging--I can only hope she will be writing a sequel!!!

This sounds like a book that will grab me and keep me interested! I hate when the series isn't complete before I read it though. I may have to add this one to my list but not read it for awhile!

Oh man! I hate it when there is not a resolution at the end. I always wonder what would have happened.

I think that many women will be able to relate to this book because of the whole "wanting to escape or get away." It sounds like a great read.
