My Review

Laurie Abrams has been dealing with her grief after her husband died of a heart attack.  He left behind a huge amount of bills leaving Laurie at loose ends.  She’s trying to decide what her best course of action would be.  With the help of the family lawyer, she decides to sell the family house and her cafe business to buy a spa on Gasparilla Island.  The spa would be a dream come true.  However, her plans hit a huge snag.

Laurie’s three adult children nix the idea and insist she stay right where she is.  Laurie has some tough decisions to make.  Although she doesn’t want to disappoint her kids, she also wants to be true to herself and live the life she wants.  When the FBI comes knocking at her door, she realizes her husband may have been in deeper trouble than she thought.

This is a short story which I devoured rather quickly.  It’s the perfect novella when you just want a quiet afternoon to relax.  Although it’s short, it’s filled with drama and emotions.  I easily became wrapped up in the Abrams family (although I wanted to knock some sense into her kids).  

Laurie seems like she could be anyone’s neighbor or best friend.  All the characters jump right off the pages.  They are realistic characters in very realistic situations.  I cannot wait for the next episode of this series.  It would make a great TV show.  I can easily see it being part of Hallmark’s line up (hint, hint).  

I’m anxiously awaiting for book #2.
