The roller-coaster ride of dating second time around...
Paris Armstrong never saw it coming. With two grown-up children and a lovely home in Connecticut, Paris was happy with her marriage, her family, her life. So when her husband of twenty-four years said they needed to talk, Paris couldn't imagine what he was about to say.

Saying goodbye to the world she knows and loves, Paris heads west, to San Francisco, and discovers being single in a world of men who are too young, too old, too married or too good to be true. With her dating track record veering between disappointing and disastrous, Paris comes to the conclusion that romance is not in her future - until she discovers the secret of turning despair into freedom and loss into joy.
