In this poignant and transformative novel, bestselling author Kris Radish weaves a tale of five women yearning for change-and the potential for happiness that lies within every heart.
Free-spirited psychologist Dr. Olivia Bayer suspects she'll need a miracle to help the four wildly different women in her anger management class. Grace, a single working mother, can barely find a moment's rest. Jane, a high-profile real estate agent, is struggling in the recession. Kit, in her fifties, has had it with her taunting older brothers. And Leah, a young mother of two, is starting over after ending a troubled relationship. All have reached a crossroads, and Dr. Bayer has an unconventional plan to steer them on the right track. As the class gets taken everywhere from a bowling alley to a shooting range, the women's Tuesday meetings transform from tense, reluctant gatherings into richly rewarding experiments in female bonding. As Grace, Jane, Kit, and Leah open up-revealing secrets, swapping stories, and recovering long-lost dreams-old wounds begin to heal, new friendships are forged, and miracles manifest in the most surprising ways.
Welcome to Paradise and the hilarious, inspirational, and sizzling hardcover debut of author Kris Radish. Searching for Paradise in Parker P.A. is a story of how one woman's search for happiness within her marriage -- and within herself -- turns a whole town upside down. When Lucky Lipton wins a trip to Paradise -- a.k.a. Costa Rica -- his wife Addy hopes they will be able to turn their marriage around. But on the day of their departure, Lucky fractures his back tossing their luggage into his truck. With the husband she barely knows anymore parked indefinitely on the couch, Addy decides its time to make big changes-and drastic choices. Addy begins a crusade to revive her dreams -- and she takes the women of Parker, Pennsylvania along for the wild ride. Soon Parker men will realize they'll have to step up to the plate to keep their wives and lovers happy. And an entire town is about to learn that to reach Paradise, you must travel through your heart-and to get there, you might not even have to leave home.
