Successful Manhattan accountant Stacy Brown is shocked when her almost perfect life unexpectedly crumbles around her. Blindsided by her husband when he serves her with divorce papers and tossed aside by the women she considered her best friends, devastation and depression hit her hard. But when her mother sends her an old photograph of her and two childhood friends, Candace and Olivia, it fuels a desire in Stacy to find that person she once was. What starts as a chance to reconnect turns into an unforgettable road trip back to her childhood home and an encounter with a man from her past.
Gavin Kingsley, son of Stacy’s old piano teacher and former annoying boy next door, sparks something in Stacy that she hasn’t felt in a long time…maybe never? Despite her hesitation to jump into a relationship, Stacy can’t help being drawn to him as she and her girlfriends take a journey of self-discovery, laughs, tears, and hysterical moments.
Can returning to her past give Stacy everything she’s been searching for in her future?

Whom did you inherit your love for books/reading from?
My maternal grandmother
When you need a murder victim or someone you can diagnose with a serious disease or someone who is involved in a fatal accident do you sometimes picture someone nasty you have met in real life and think ‘got you’ LOL?
Lol. Having written a few Cozy mysteries—I can neither confirm nor deny J
How do you come up with the names for your characters?
I’ve used some names of my ancestors. I’ve also been inspired after watching Beverly Hills 90210 re-runs. LOL
Do write other things beside books (and shoppinglists 😉 )?
I used to be an avid journal keeper.
If your movie or series would be made from your books, would you be happy with the ‘based on’ version or would you rather like they showed it exactly the way you created it?
I’d be thrilled to have my books made into movies J
Who would you like/have liked to interview?
Do you have certain people you contact while doing research to pick their brains? What are they specialized in?
I use my friend Google, mostly J
Is there someone you sometimes discuss a dilemma with?
I have a wonderful author tribe, we support each other through the ups and downs.
What is more important to you : a rating in stars with no comments or a reviewer who explains what the comments they give are based on (without spoilers of course)
That depends on if the reader liked the book J LOL J/K!
I like reviews J
