Genre: Women’s Fiction
Despite Karen Caughee’s intense focus on her music, her life is drifting out of its lane. Her alcoholic mother keeps calling from bars for early-morning rides, her boyfriend doesn’t think she gets him, and that Toronto Symphony Orchestra position she applied for ends up going to her friend, Amy. By chance, she meets American Greg Randolf just before she’s in a car accident. He pulls her from the wreckage, but after major surgery, her recovery is slow. Without her music, her life’s pursuit, Karen is pushed further adrift.
Greg stays by her side while she heals, and he sees her every time he’s in Toronto for work. Without any other support or friendship in her life, Karen craves his enthusiastic attention, and their friendship deepens to love. Though she’s fallen hard for him, he doesn’t share everything with her. In one heartrending moment, Karen’s life comes to a crossroads, and she must face the full truth about who Greg is, and about who she has become.
Karen is a violinist for the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. She has a car accident and is rescued by an American named Greg Randolph. This leads to a hot romance with many repercussions.
I enjoyed this story, even though Karen was a little bit of a whiny character. She tended to get on my nerves. However, the story has many twists, turns, ups and downs.
Greg and Karen had wonderful chemistry. And with the mystery surrounding Greg, it was an added twist and made the story so much more enjoyable.
A wonderful, quick beach read. I can not wait to read more by this author. This story has potential!
