Roller Coaster - eBook

Roller Coaster

by
Two very different reasons brought Laura Izmani and Helen Baynor to the Beach Boardwalk for a symbolic ride on the biggest wooden roller coaster on the west coast. They part strangers, but only after sharing an experience that shifted both of their lives onto new tracks.

Their paths cross again decades later when Laura interviews with Helen to become the private chef for the Baynor household. Given what Laura revealed during that fateful coaster ride, she's relieved that Helen seems to have forgotten her.

Fiercely protective of her children, Helen—now a famous stage actress and widow with teenaged twins—divides her time between home in a sleepy California enclave and the bright lights of Broadway. Continuing her carefully managed life until her children leave for college is all she wants.

Their first roller coaster ride together may turn out to be only a prelude...

Roller Coaster — Finalist, Traditional/Contemporary Romance.

C-Spot Reviews

...A large majority of this book has the two main characters separated by great distance (Helen in New York, Laura at her home in California)... It allows the reader to really learn a lot about each character independently, and for the protagonists to become friends before lovers.

The Lesbrary

Reviewer Anna, January 2012: Two women, an aspiring chef and an aspiring actress, meet on a stalled roller coaster for a brief but candid exchange that changes each fundamentally. Twenty-three years later, Laura Izmani finds herself interviewing for the position of private chef for the famous stage actress Helen Baynor... As Laura and Helen encounter romantic challenges with other people, Kallmaker quietly but effectively sets the stage for their relationship as they live and work together in a family setting. But there are still several secrets between them -- Laura continues to be reluctant about revealing their shared past -- and Kallmaker makes her characters work for a satisfying conclusion. Recommended.
