Wild Rose (Late Bloomers #1)

New Series!

Fall in love with The LateBloomers, a series about five 40-something women who each choose adventure, travel, and love when they reach a crossroads in life. These seasoned women are ready to take on the world, starting with Book 1: Wild Rose.

About the Book:
Rose Quinn is having a very bad summer. First her 19-year-old daughter left home to backpack across Europe instead of going to college. Then a woman she loved like a mother died of a heart attack, making her feel like an orphan all over again. And in just a few weeks her best friend will be moving to New York City. For a single mother who’s always had someone else to take care of, Rose is finally wondering how to take care of herself.

Handsome Mateo Romero is a transplanted Spaniard running a restaurant on Lake Como in Italy. A broken heart got him there, but he’s made a success of it just like he did his architecture business back in Madrid. One thing he hasn’t been successful with is love.

When Mateo hires Rose’s daughter for a summer job and gives her a free place to stay, Rose immediately suspects the worst. She won’t let her daughter make the same mistake she did at that age, so Rose flies to Italy to confront Mateo. What Rose finds instead is a secret she didn’t suspect and a challenge to everything she’s ever thought about love and the illusion of control.

Rose’s daughter doesn’t need saving, but can Rose save herself?

A few thoughts:
Its a new series for Women over 40 but really.......under 40 will enjoy it as well :)
Introducing Rose who went to Italy to chase after her daughter whom she believes is having an affair with a much older guy.  This is a refreshing story about friendships, letting go and finding love again.  Its the perfect summer read.

Introducing the Author:

Since I first learned to read, I've devoured at least one book a week (currently, about three). As curious as I am about what other people write, I'm just as curious to talk about it in real life, especially if we can do it over a great meal.

In 2010, I sold everything I owned along with my husband to take off on a trip around the world that turned into a full-time lifestyle. You'd think this adventure would have replaced some of my reading time, but if anything it fueled it.

In 2014 we bought a house in a small village in Spain, and when we're not traveling, this is where we make our home. It's a beautiful place to live and write...and read!

After coauthoring four nonfiction books with my husband, I'm now writing a romance series for women over 40 called The Late Bloomers. Adventure, love, and self-discovery await these experienced and confident women!
