Publisher's Summary

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?

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.

Kept Me Guessing

Would you listen to A New Kind of Bliss again? Why?

No. I don't backtrack.

What did you like best about this story?

I went back and forth wondering which man Emily would choose.

Which scene was your favorite?

I enjoyed the scenes where Emily was confronted by the mother-in-law.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
