I put off reading this story until I thought I was in the 'right mood'. I was afraid I was going to find this older contemporary romance depressing, at minimum: sad. I don't think I have read a romance so loaded with the highs and lows of love, sparks of angst, crackles of friction and unnecessary suffering since I read Theresa Weir's ONE FINE DAY.

And for me to give this story a low rating would be wrong on so many levels. Because sometimes, yes, sometimes, a couple have to go through a mountai

I don’t think you could name the book more appropriately than what it is. “Annie’s Wild Ride” is the name of a roller-coaster that Annie’s parents designed for an amusement park, attraction that used to be one of the fastest in the country.

The chapters effortlessly and seamlessly move between the past and the present where Paul is desperately trying to safe his now ex-wife and their daughter after a plane crash. The flashbacks ex ...more

A somewhat emotional read about a woman (Major in the Air Force) and her 11 year old daughter who are in a plane crash and awaiting rescue by Anne's Air Force ex-husband. Chapters alternate between "present day" and when the couple first met and dated in the early-mid 80's.
