This story contains three short stories written by the same author and all have the same beginning, but all have different endings and characters. Overall, I feel that all three stories show that achieving your dreams can take you down different paths to reach the same desired effect in the end.
Bella Lacarie is on her way to an important audition that she’s staking the future of her life on. While on her way there, her taxi is hijacked by Detective John Greco. If that doesn’t make things bad enough, they are both held prisoner soon after. Things will never be the same for either of them from this moment on.
Willow Hill is also on her way to her audition when Dr. Flynn Bradshaw knocks her down to grab the cab that has stopped for her. Feeling extremely bad for his inconsiderate actions, he takes her to his apartment to help her recover from the injury she sustained from him being so careless and rude. Things definitely take a turn for the both of them moving forward.
In the last story, Maggie Trent is the third woman on her way to an audition when she receives news from her friend Colin that his twin brother is missing in Afghanistan while working on a story. Instead of heading to her audition, she heads directly to Colin’s apartment to sit and wait for some further news. In the process, Maggie and Colin start coming to terms that they both have feelings for each other. Their lives are also changed because of their present situation.
Overall, this was an enjoyable read for me. I found myself curious to see how each situation worked itself through in the end. I look forward to reading more stories in the future from Ms. Leigh.
