Sweet Nothings

By Claire Bocardo

The vague hum of discontent that permeates Ginger Power’s life grows louder every day. Discovering that Les is robbing the family firm to buy his current tootsie expensive gifts tears it; Ginger must build a new life without him. After 34 years, the challenge is great—but oh, the rewards!

What They Are Saying About Sweet Nothings

The portrayal of this woman's marital somnambulism is so flawless that you want to scream at her, but the author skillfully uses it to present the character's full awakening. She's a heroine with a sense of humor who is realistic about the failings of her own psychology. I loved the accounts of the late-bloomer dating experience and found the new romance thoroughly winsome. 3 1/2 stars
