This is quality fiction from a quality writer. You can really sense the author’s story-telling expertise as you view life through each character in the book. The characters are deep and amusing, the writing is incredible, and the story is not the pat romance story that has been beaten to death.

I really appreciated all of the real-life problems that the characters faced. One was bitter from her divorce. One was raised to be non-feeling and is almost robotic in her work life. And one is a widow who was forced to go back to work after her husband’s death.

What I really loved was that every character in the book handled their problems differently. And in the end they learned from each other’s better qualities and created change in their lives.

Ms. Baumbich tells this story in a pleasant, refreshing way. There is an aspect of the story that requires a stretching of the imagination, but it’s done in such a way that it adds very nicely to the story. I loved the book. Each page was a pleasure to read.

Thank you to the publisher for giving me this copy to review.
