Forging a Desire Line
C harley Owens is content with her life. She has her super-organized job, her super-clean apartment, her long-time friends, and her cats. That’s all she needs after the crumbling of her twenty-five-year relationship, even if her friends keep trying to set her up with someone new. But when she meets the handsome and aloof Joanna, she’s forced to reevaluate what it is she wants, and maybe what’s been missing…
Everything seems to be going well until Charley’s ex-wife, Tricia, calls with devastating news and Charley’s hope for a quiet life is overturned. While trying to take care of Tricia, Charley is determined to get Joanna to take a chance on her. But is she ready to take one herself?
To Be Read Book Reviews
[...]There is a beautiful reality in [Forging a Desire Line] that isn’t immediately obvious. I found I wanted to label and box each character as they entered the story but they stubbornly refused to stay there. There are so many grey areas in relationships and life that it’s never as simple as girl meets girl, they fall in love, they fall out and then make up. Life, like this novel is nuanced, and complicated and feelings don’t just move along when one wants them to.[...]
[Forging a Desire Line] is such a loving story. Sad at times, because how can you say good bye to someone who left you long time ago, but you still care about. Funny at times, when you meet new people and create new memories. I really liked both characters. They grew together, took time to develop their feelings, and make sure they enter their relationship when they are ready.
This is a first one for me from Mary and I am a fan from now on.
