Angela Dean is a pastor’s wife. Her life revolves around her husband and three sons. When her last son leaves home for college, Angela is left with an empty nest. Add to that, her husband is always tired and busy, leaving her very frustrated sexually.

Angela decides to spread her wings and make the most of this new-found freedom after her SAHM retirement, as everyone advises her to do. She joins a book club, and meets with Christophe Tennison, a man much younger than her. As friendship blooms between the two; will Angela allow it to go to the next level like Christophe wants it to?

The author tries her hand at short format writing here, after a few full-length novels. I have to admit this story, apparently dull at first glance, surprised me with its level of tension and realistic characterization. The twists and turns of the plot are also very interesting, and Ms. Littlejohn spins a very good weave. I enjoyed going through it, especially with the last minute denouement.
