Short, sweet, and endearing. The novella (or long short story since it's only about 16,000 words) tells the story about one woman trying to find love after a divorce. There are some rather humorous moments during the course of the tale that might be comparable to a romantic comedy. And after reading a lot of science fiction and fantasy lately, this was a welcome breath of fresh air. I didn't realize how much I missed contemporary fiction until I read this.

This novella is a touching story of a young woman who has just suffered through a painful breakup of her marriage and moved back into her deceased parents’ old home. To add insult to injury, the outdated septic system needs replacing, requiring the removal of an old oak tree. This puts a huge strain her pocketbook, but even more worrisome is her guilt over displacing a squirrel she has befriended.

We follow Karen as she is plunged back into the dating scene – with hilarious results as she discove

This is a great story of healing and self-discovery. When I started the story I was skeptical that a man could write from a woman's perspective. I was pleasantly surprised to find myself totally immersed in the story. The story is well rounded and I found myself tearing up right along with the character and cheering for her happy ending.

Another gorgeous story from this author. A short novella about a very endearing squirrel, a woman who has returned to her home town after a break-up and a septic tank that meeds a major over-hall. The end is totally heart-warming. I loved this one.
Oops, I hit the wrong button. I haven't read this one, yet, but I don't know how to undo the "read" button.
