Twice divorced, cynical Cindy Layton feels like a relic with prehistoric baggage, and doubts she can muster the courage to establish a new relationship, even if it’s on her own terms. Her journey out of the Stone Age hits freaky, hilarious turbulence when she joins an Internet dating service. The scammers and weirdoes she meets in cyberspace make Cindy want to crawl back into her cave, until she receives an accidental email from Jay DeMatteo. Jay has the dating blues, too, but after meeting Cindy, reconsiders his options. Now it’s up to him to convince her it’s never too late to pursue a meaningful relationship, even when a couple is struggling with midlife adolescence.
This book is a life lesson on what to and not to do when looking to jump back on the horse. I found myself laughing and think WTH all while reading. A notebook would be a handy device when you are going through the trials and changes of the heroine. A quirky novel with GREAT insight.
Cindy did all the things people told her not to do. Finding a companion after two failed marriages on an online dating sight sent her on a roller coaster many will not embark. Although prior “baggage” had her guards up she still came across a lot of creeps in her search. She had the drive in which many will not have being in the “middle age” category and I certainly applaud that. I just couldn’t have been me.
Jay was a man with a past he didn’t escape but he also knew what he was willing to take or deal with. The man had a heart of gold and patience many of use will be in awe of. His willingness to assist with Cindy “riding a bike” allowed them both to love again. It was something they have given up on years ago.
I would so recommend this book to readers as well as read book two. The HEA was so unexpected because of the ups and downs of the main characters. Great job Susan Jean Ricci.
