Description

When 34-year-old Chloe Morgan appears on Hank Oliver's doorstep in Cameron, Arizona, she arrives with more than her old white German shepherd, Hannah, and a rambunctious horse in tow. Chloe is pregnant with Hank's child, and she's as tough-talking and vulnerable, skittish and tender as when last we saw her, in Jo-Ann Mapson's acclaimed first novel "Hank & Chloe." "Loving Chloe" takes up where the earlier novel leaves off. As Chloe and Hank settle somewhat uneasily into domesticity in his grandmother's cabin, a local Navajo legend named Junior Whitebear, an artist whose work has been praised by the Eastern commercial establishment, returns home to collect his father's ashes and renew his own spirit after years spent in the art world fast lane. When Junior arrives at the reservation, he doesn't expect to find a son he fathered unwittingly nine years ago with Corinne Johnson; nor is he looking to fall in love with newcomer Chloe Morgan and to deliver her baby girl. Both events change his life forever, not to mention the lives of those around him. A passionate love story, "Loving Chloe" explores the emotional complexity of a love triangle with sympathy, humor and compassion.Sexual longing, the bonds of family and nagging questions of identity with far-reaching consequences making "Loving Chloe" a rich, rewarding work of fiction. Set against the spectacular beauty of the American Southwest, Jo-Ann Mapson's new novel is the page-turning sequel to "Hank & Chloe" that readers have eagerly been awaiting.

Review quote

"Quite possibly the best love story of the decade--and clearly the wisest, most magical...Jo-Ann Mapson's sensual writing tells every woman's secret urges and makes this book impossible to put down."-- Jonis Agee"Mapson creates characters so real you could recognize them coming down the road...It's good seeing Hank and Chloe again."-- "Chicago Tribune""Mapson's dialogue is earthly and funny, her setting evocative, her portrayal of good people facing difficult choices compassionate."-- "New York Times Book Review""This is the kind of novel you want to keep reading. Mapson is a master of her trade and knows just where to push the buttons."-- "Detroit Free Press"
