Tinged with just the right blend of humanity, romance, and suspense to produce an intelligent page-turning read with a story line that is enticingly unpredictable.

In sun-drenched Carson springs, nestled amid the hills of southern California, the only thing juicier than the oranges is the local gossip. Strolling down a street lined wit colorful shops, few would guess of the scandals here... or the rich and tangled history. Step into the world of Eileen Goudge's absorbing new trilogy and you won't want to turn back....

Watching her beautiful daughter trade wedding vows with a much older man, forty-eight-year-old widow Samantha Kiley can't help wonderingif life has somehow passed her by. But hours later, after a brief, flirtatious exchange witha magnetic younger man, she starts to think that her real life is just about to begin....

Much to her daughters' distress, Sam embarks on an affair with Ian Carpenter, igniting a furious scandal in small-town Carson Springs-a place that is not nearly as idyllic as it seems....

I started this and not my genre. Others may enjoy the scandlous affair story line. It is number one of a trilogy.
