Leona is thirty-nine years old, single and living in her younger sister’s basement. Her situation isn’t exactly conducive to being a mom and she has come to accept that. When she has a visit with her gynecologist, and is informed that her biological clock is winding down, she finds that the thought of being a mom stays at the forefront of her thoughts. This causes a sudden panic and Leona to start considering her options. She could always try fertility treatments or adopt, but she realizes that those options cost money. Lots of money … of which she doesn’t have. That’s when she starts considering the few single guys that she knows. Could there be a potential suitor in the bunch?
What I really enjoyed about this book was the sense of hope it brought. I left the story realizing that it doesn’t matter how old you are, you are never too old to go after what you want out of life.
The author wrote in such a way that made it relatable with the perfect amount of humor. And the men that Leona encounters? Let’s just say, they bring a lot of enjoyment to the story.

About the author:
I was a reader before I was a writer, devouring everything I could get my hands on, including the backs of cereal boxes and the instructions booklet for building the Barbie dream house. Later, my obsession with reading evolved into an absolute need to write. After college, I wrote for national trade magazines, taught writing to college freshmen, and eventually found the guts to try fiction.
I'll Be Seeing You, my novel cowritten with Suzanne Hayes, debuted from Harlequin Mira in June 2013. Our second book, Empire Girls, releases on May 27, 2014.
My solo work includes The Witch Collector, Parts I & II, paranormal thrillers for HarperTeen. I love all things witchy--Stevie Nicks is my gal!
When I'm not writing, I'm knitting, baking, and doing all kinds of things my high school self would have found hilarious.
