Twice in a Lifetime

I hadn't read this author before but I'm a fan of second chance stories so I decided to give this a try. It was a sweet story about two middle aged women who meet up again after 15 years. They finally act on the spark that was there so many years ago and what follows is a lovely romance.

I liked both of the main characters in this and I thought the development of the romance was well done. I liked how their jobs and their families tied into the overall plot.

I tend to read more angsty stories so this was a bit out of my norm as it was pretty sweet. Sometimes a change is nice though. I also really liked that the characters were in their fifties. It's quite refreshing to read about a heroine not in her twenties.

Overall this was a nice, solid story and one I would recommend to those looking with mature women involved in a mature relationship.


Book Blurb for Twice in a Lifetime

When widow Talia Wasserman applies for a job with the local police department, she’s shocked to discover she’ll be working for Lieutenant Eve Poe, an officer she’d met—and been attracted to—during a long-ago citizen’s police academy workshop. Fifteen years later, the spark is still there, and no one’s currently in Talia’s life or in her bed. But there’s just one teeny, tiny problem. Eve is her boss, so she’s completely off-limits.

Eve feels a sizzling connection with Talia from the very first, but Talia works for her, and that’s just a bad idea. Besides, Eve needs to focus on the person sending disturbing emails to her office, and not on the woman who quickly makes herself invaluable to the department. It’s too bad her heart doesn’t agree with her.

Then Eve is badly injured in the line of duty, and Talia’s worst fears are realized. She may lose her chance at happiness with the woman she’s come to love, and she can’t survive that kind of loss twice in a lifetime.
