To any authors/publishers/ tour companies that are looking for the reviews that I signed up for please know this is very hard to do. I will be stopping reviews temporarily. My husband passed away February 1st and my new normal is a bit scary right now and I am unable to concentrate on a book to do justice to the book and authors. I will still do spotlight posts if you wish it is just the reviews at this time. I apologize for this, but it isn't fair to you if I signed up to do a review and haven't been able to because I can't concentrate on any books. Thank you for your understanding during this difficult time. I appreciate all of you. Kathleen Kelly April 2nd 2024

With Spring Fling the next event on Bluestar’s busy calendar, the residents decide to use it to play another round of matchmaking.

He’s minding his own business when the most beautiful woman rushes into the roadway, right in front of his cart. With no time to stop, the collision leaves both of them stunned. As circumstances conspire to draw them together, they soon find themselves helping each other to come to terms with the past while exploring an unexpected love.

“There’s a secret…” Her mother had shoved aside her oxygen mask. “I should have told you a long time ago. I…”

Her mother’s last words echoed in Elaine “Lainey” Devereaux’s mind. Her mother’s voice had been raspy and frequently interrupted with harrowing bouts of coughing. “I love you… Before you were born, I…” There had been more coughing. “I took a very important road trip. I was searching for...”

That was it. That was all her mother said before the coughing and wheezing had gotten so bad that the medical staff had to intervene. Lainey had been forced from the room, never to hear her mother’s voice again.

When she’d broached the subject with her father, he’d given her a blank stare. He told her that he didn’t know what her mother was referring too. Lainey didn’t believe him because her father had a tell—he would twist his wedding ring once and only once. It was as though he could tell he was doing it and would stop himself. So what were her parents keeping from her?

Now with the funeral over, their Manhattan house was filled with people expressing their condolences. Lainey couldn’t stomach one more word of sympathy. She couldn’t shake another hand. And she didn’t want any more hugs. None of it did anything to fill the gaping hole in her heart.

She missed her mother so much that words couldn’t describe her grief. Not only had her mother been a great parent but as Lainey transformed into an adult, her mother had become a good friend. They shopped together. They lunched together. And most of all they talked about most anything—even about the guys Lainey dated.

Lainey quietly slipped to the steps. She made her way up a flight before she decided to keep going up to the third floor. She didn’t have a destination in mind. She just wanted to get away from the sympathetic looks and empty words.

When she reached the landing, the tall double doors leading to her parents’ bedroom loomed before her. She had knocked on that door and crossed over that threshold thousands of times throughout her life. In her mind she could still hear her mother’s sweet voice calling out, “Come in.”

Lainey’s hand grasped the vintage French brass doorknob and swung the heavy door open. There was still a part of her expecting to find her mother curled up in the large armchair with floral upholstery that stood next to the fireplace. Lainey recalled how her mother would devour book after book in that very spot.

Now the chair stood empty with her mother’s cream-colored throw folded and carefully hung over the back of the chair. The pain in Lainey’s heart grew and threatened to send her into a fit of tears again. Her eyes burned and her throat was raw from all of the crying she’d done in the last few days.

She turned her head, taking in her mother’s side of the enormous four-poster bed. Next to it was her nightstand where her mother had kept a framed photo of their little family--Lainey, her mother and her father. As Lainey’s gaze continued around the room, her attention came to rest on her mother’s cedar chest that was placed beneath a window.

Lainey moved to it. Her mother told her that’s where she kept her most treasured mementoes. When her mother was alive Lainey was never allowed to open the chest, but now Lainey longed for anything that would make her feel closer to her mother.
