The tragedy of 9-11 changed many things for Americans that will never be the same. In the cloudy days soon thereafter, Carla King’s husband disappeared without a trace and she was left with their daughter to survive. After their divorce, she was living a mundane life one day at a time when one night while out with friends, she runs into Cutino Grigsby, her mister right. From the start, time spent with Cutino was adventurous and lustful, gregarious and fanciful free. They danced the Marengo on the Bay of Biscay and flew with the doves over mountains of joy. Their impromptu travels to faraway places and gifts from Cutino blinded her from any negative judgments about him. His physical appearance was striking and his confidence brought her security and made Carla take a note of admiration. But it is his deceit that teaches her the most, as her renaissance man will bring changes into her life that she never anticipates. She must hang on for the ride towards a crossroad of life which could land her in deep water, or even her demise. Experience her journey and enjoy the ride.

When I read a book in two days, it is definitly a page turner!!! An excellent read! It is a great story with all the elements that keep you reading. It has romance, a bit of mystery and definitly thrills....right up to the end! I liked the down to earthiness of the book and how he developed the characters. I kept yelling, No Carla, bad move, until I realized I was talking to a story. It is really a worthwhile read! ByTeresa Bridges
