This was a sweet 40 page short that was more the conclusion of an already existing story for the main characters than the beginning.  It was written in the present with the characters’ memories filling in the past so it was not difficult to follow the storyline.

Tom is a famous writer who has been ordered by his publisher to attend a writing workshop because he is losing touch with his female readers.  He grudgingly journeys to the hotel and promptly back-ends his lovely Aston Martin into a sleek Porsche.

He gets the surprise of his life when the irate driver of said Porsche is his estranged wife, Mary, who now styles herself as Mollie, the famous reclusive writer who is giving the workshop.

Tom and Mollie have a checkered history in which their marriage did not much survive the filing of the marriage record.  Her wealthy family interfered and the two were parted for five years with not a word.

The plot is quick and the characters naturally are not deeply developed, but that’s to be understood with such a short story offering.  It was definitely a case of both parties being manipulated and lied too with this being their chance to set things right.  Will they finally talk of the past and grasp their second opportunity for happiness is the prevailing question.

Sweet, short read to occupy your time in the doctor’s office waiting room or the pick-up line at the kids’ elementary school.

I was born and raised near Sacramento, CA. I have read since I was four years old and developed tastes that run the gamut of literature. I went away to college and have a degree in education, a certificate in family history research, and a certificate in social work. I worked for a non-profit agency with low income families for 20 years which included being responsible for the children’s library and promoting/teaching adult literacy. I have lived in Southeast Michigan for the last 18 years and I am currently a book addicted homemaker with a cat and husband who keep me grounded. Recently, I made it a challenge to review each book that I have read as a favor to author friends who said reviews are important. I have done reviews for Good Reads, Amazon, eBay, and Smashwords, but mostly at Goodreads and Amazon.
