“You nearly killed me!”
The last in a series of wrong turns propels Callie Callahan directly into the path of Vicki Browning’s speedboat. Her long-anticipated return to the lake of her childhood results in an uncomfortable tie to a woman she’s not sure she wants to call a friend.
It’s the story of her life. She gave up a dependable job for a failing business that has wiped out her savings. Her nights have been lonely since her marriage ended eight years ago. Providing for her two teenagers is increasingly difficult when her business partner is spending the last money in the till.
Hoping to make a smart choice for once, she rents the upstairs of her farmhouse to Meg Klein. While the vexatious Vicki stirs up a hornet’s nest of feelings in Callie, it’s the elusive, sensuous Meg who transforms these unexpected feelings into a physical reality Callie can’t ignore. Finally, Callie feels as if her life could head in the right direction—if only she knew which way to turn!
Jackie Calhoun (Roommates, Seasons of the Heart) returns with a down-to-earth story of a woman struggling to find the right path-and the right woman-to finally make sense of her life.
Just About Write
R. Lynne - October, 2008: Calhoun has again given her readers a character with whom we can identify. Callie is as real as our best friend or the woman next door. As she struggles through her financial and emotional crisis, we care. Wrong Turns is an extremely enjoyable read, and lives up to the high standards Calhoun has always set for herself.
