Emma’s life changes the day Ruben Templeton walks in and asks her out on a date. Over dinner, she’s a little disappointed when his best friend, Jesse Kimball, joins them. Jesse is a senator’s son who just announced his candidacy for mayor.
Twenty-seven-year-old Emma is surprised, but excited when it’s Jesse who calls her the next day instead of Ruben.
Jesse introduces Emma to a life with mansions, expensive cars, cocktail dresses, and status. It doesn’t take long for him to sweep her off her feet. He’s handsome and charming, making her feel like the center of his universe.
When Emma receives devastating news, Jesse asks her to marry him. From the moment she agrees, their relationship starts to deteriorate. Desperate to understand why her new husband is so cold and distant, she reaches out to him, only to be met by anger.
Hurt and confused, Emma turns to Ruben for advice.
Ruben suggests they give each other space for a few weeks. Weeks she can use to help him locate his younger brother Axel, who has gone missing. Emma agrees, and soon finds herself on a road trip across the country.
Will Emma and Jesse’s temporary separation clear the distance between them, or will she find love in the arms of another man?
This book was a very interesting book. I can't really figure out what kind of book it's supposed to be. Emma has her own life working at a library and caring for her sick mother. Then an old friend comes into the library and pretends he wants to have dinner to get to know her. Within a couple weeks she is swept up in to politics and Jesse's life.
Pretty quickly everything starts to go south. Her mom does, she gets married and then realizes that it is not what is seems. There is no love. She is convinced, by Ruben, to instead of divorce, help him find his brother and give her time to think.
Honestly I am not sure how I feel about this book. The first half dragged on. Then when she started traveling it was a little more interesting. Then she meets Eagle and everything starts to feel rushed. Like the last 50 pages had so much and was so crammed full. At the end I was just like this is it. I felt it could have been way shorter of a story and been better. I did love Emma though and her mother's and hers relationship. Jesse and Ruben could totally have disappeared and it would have been fine. It actually made me upset that they got a happy ending and no repercussions, other than losing the election, for how horrible they were to Emma.
A long time ago, I fell in love with the United States while traveling around in an Oldsmobile station-wagon with my husband. We are both born and raised in the Netherlands.
Together, we eventually found our way to the Pacific Northwest, built up a business, and raised our two boys into amazing young adults with their own careers. During this time, I also made a slow transition from reader to writer of many different stories.
My multiple award winning debut novel "Storm at Keizer Manor" sets the bar high for my second novel, Eagles in Flight.
All my books are stand alone novels in different genres. You might be in for a surprise, or a disappointment.
