From the "New York Times" bestselling author of such beloved novels
as "Jemima J," "The Beach House," "Another Piece of My Heart" comes
an enthralling and emotional story about how much we really
understand the temptations that can threaten even the most idyllic
Gabby and Elliott have been happily married for eighteen years.
They have two teenaged daughters. They have built a life together.
Forty-three year old Gabby is the last person to have an affair.
She can't relate to the way her friends desperately try to cling to
the beauty and allure of their younger years...And yet, she too
knows her youth is quickly slipping away. She could never imagine
how good it would feel to have a handsome younger man show interest
in her--until the night it happens. Matt makes Gabby feel
sparkling, fascinating, "alive"--something she hasn't felt in
years. What begins as a long-distance friendship soon develops into
an emotional affair as Gabby discovers her limits and boundaries
are not where she expects them to be. Intoxicated, Gabby has no
choice but to step ever deeper into the allure of attraction and
attention, never foreseeing the life-changing consequences that lie
ahead. If she makes one wrong move she could lose everything--and
find out what really matters most.
A heartfelt and complex story, "Tempting Fate" will have readers
gripped until they reach the very last page, and thinking about the
characters long after they put the book down.
