A coming of (middle) age tale,
This review is from: Old Boyfriends (Mass Market Paperback)
Rexanne Becnel has skillfully crafted an exquisite coming of (middle) age tale to which most readers will be able to relate. "Three women raised in the South and trapped in California" decide to go together to their home town of New Orleans after one of them has received an invitation to her 30 year high school class reunion. While there, they can't help but check out their old boyfriends to find out if they missed anything good.
From the time they leave their homes in California, to the long journey on Interstate 10 to New Orleans, to the time spent in New Orleans prior to the reunion, and to the reunion, the three examine their pasts and experiment with their futures to rediscover themselves and realize their true life lessons as they experience both tragic and comic episodes.
Old Boyfriends kept me entertained, interested, and wondering from the moment I picked up the book to the moment I put it down. The characters are exciting, interesting, and realistically portrayed in an all-for-one-and-one-for-all relationship.
Rexanne Becnel does as well in modern romance as she does in historical romance. Old Boyfriends is a great read. I recommend it highly.
