Maggie Christensen really is the queen of second-chance, later life romance and she proves it yet again with her latest novel.
The Life She Wants is the third in the Granite Springs series and it's another realistic - but oh so romantic - tale.
It tells the story of Fran and Owen, two very different people who are mutually attracted to one another. Fran works as a university administrator and presents a professional demeanour at all times. Owen is a laid back, hippy-type musician and music professor. Fran has lots of emotional baggage but keeps her emotions well hidden.
And as a reader you are hooked in by wanting to find out if Owen will break down Fran's defences.
The story moves at a steady, well-judged pace with lots of nice touches along the way. It's an optimistic and heart-warming read which shows it's never to late to fall in love.
Yes, it's another cracker of a book from Maggie Christensen and I can highly recommend it.
