Secrets, betrayal & lust

On the Woman's Bookshelf

"Hey, Poppy! Have you heard the news?" cried perky Cookie Lee, waving from behind the counter of her popular, upscale coffee shop. Rainbow's on Fifth - known simply as Rainbow's by the affluent year-rounders - was the caffeine hub of downtown Naples.

"What news?" Poppy asked, cocking her head brightly.

"Your old boyfriend - that movie start, Heston Demming - the one you dated in high school, remember? He's moved back to town! Can you believe it?..."

The news that Poppy Talbot hears about her old high school flame leaves her head spinning in the premiere novel, "A Chance to Say Yes" by Tina Murray. It tells the story of Heston Demming, an international celebrity who is stalked by the paparazzi, loved by men and women and who is fighting for emotional survival. What he doesn't know is that the only woman who has truly loved him, one sweet Poppy, has been keeping a secret from him for about 20 years.

"A Chance to Say Yes" is the perfect book for those who love celebrity gossip and for those who want a glimpse into the lives of the rich and famous. In addition to the romance, sexual tension, scandals, betrayal and secrecy, there are a few other twists and turns that will keep you engaged until the very end.

Personally, I found the book to be a good break from reality and couldn't wait to find out how it ended. Check it out for yourself and let me know what you think.

Missed my last review? It's about the book "Real Church: Does it exist? Can I find it?" The author, Larry Crabb, says, "Church as I know it usually leaves deep parts of me dormant, unawakened, and untouched... I don't much like going to church." The issues Crabb points out give comfort to those who have the same questions and, to me, provides answers to many questions.
