I enjoyed this book on many levels. The description was lovely, the characters were appealing, and I'm a sucker for second-chance love stories. It was also fun to read a book that features older characters who are still active, interesting, and sexy. I'll be looking for more books by this author.
"You're right, of course. This dream is going to blow sky high, just the way Owen's did a hundred and fifty years ago."
A woman's voice. Rich, throaty. Lazy. Marek Sumner looked up from the lecture notes he'd been shuffling together. Audacious, slanting brown eyes scrutinized him, taking his measure in a leisurely way.
The Friday 56 (from 56% on my Kindle):
High above, the night sky was amazingly clear. Diamond stars winked cheerfully, and the moon sent a shiver of light across an ink sea. It was good being here.

Synopsis (from Goodreads):
San Francisco, 1971: hippies in the streets, music and revolution in the air. The evening Marek Sumner opened his door to the wild-looking Felicity Powers, he knew nothing would ever be the same again. But even love and passion couldn’t keep them together.
Forty-three years later, having lived in the world’s most dangerous places as a foreign aid worker, Felicity is back, still offering him love, passion, and adventure. But why would Marek risk having his heart broken a second time? Now a well-known author, he loves his calm, solitary life in an isolated farmhouse. He and Felicity are just too different; their relationship could never work.
But Felicity is just as fascinating and joyful as ever, and that wonderful sexy magic is still there too. As for love, perhaps it’s even deeper and more delightful the second time around.
