Author Bettye Griffin pens novels featuring contemporary women trying to make sense of a crazy world.

When middle-aged divorcee Emily Yancy moves home to be with her ailing mother, she's not expecting to find romance. But Aaron Merritt is a handsome doctor with all the right moves - except when it comes to the bedroom. Then there's Teddy Simms, her former crush whose only skills seem to lie between the sheets. What will Emily choose - happiness or sexual fulfillment?

A Waste!

This book had the makings of something so much better, but it just fell flat and disappointed time and time again. The narrator did a pretty good job, but the storyline and the ending... especially the ending, has left me feeling like I just wasted time out of my life that I will never get back.

Good listen: Narrater annoying

This was a good read but i am reminded why I prefer male narrators. Shari has a veri artificial annoying shaky voice that i had to press my way beyond. Her voice rises and falls at the wrong times...the worst trait for a narrator in my oppinion. Search for narration by Patricia Floyd or Susian Spain for an excellent delivery by a female.
