Catalina and Manny were two people, of mature age, finding love again in an RV park. A setting which is a rarity in romance books. At least, I haven't run across too many.
Also, most best-selling (romance) reads aren't solely based around a couple over the age of 50 so I applaud Tena for stepping out of the "norm".
In Catalina and the Winter Texan, Catalina and Manny had fiery and sweets moments -- two adjectives also used to describe them (personally).
Of course, Manny wouldn't call Cat totally sweet. He would definitely put her in the class of a MILF and she would concur he was a GILF.
Since they couldn't help but kiss (often) and finally made love, my assessment is 100% true. :)
Before I wrap up this review, I want to address the amusing sections of Catalina vs. the computer. When Cat couldn't figure out how to turn it on or how to do a internet search on it, I thought of my mom. My mom is computer illiterate. Heck, she can't figure out texting and still uses a VCR which can be found flashing 12:00 regularly.
So, Tena, I want to say THANK YOU for making me smile.
Summary: Catalina and the Winter Texan
Catalina Reyes has sacrificed everything to own a beach-front recreational vehicle Park. Widowed and struggling, her Park falls on hard times and needs extensive renovations to stay open.
When Manuel Batista, a widowed and successful contractor rents a slot at the Park, he's immediately attracted to Catalina and captivated by her fiery spirit and determination. Manuel helps Catalina to renovate her Park. Working together, their relationship sizzles, but Catalina realizes Manuel will return north after the winter. Unwilling to start a long-distance relationship after a painful breakup in her previous marriage, she must learn to trust again.
Can they overcome Catalina's fears and bridge the gap of hundreds of miles between their homes and families to find a second chance at love?
First of I’ve got to say you hit this one out of the park. As a person in this age group, I’ve seen my step mom find love after my dad’s passing, as well as seeing my mom find love again and my step dad was the best thing that ever happened to my mom until she passed a few years ago. It doesn’t matter how old we are, we all deserve someone to love. Now to explain why I’m only giving this story a four star when I feel you hit it out of the park. I don’t speak Spanish and had to look up meanings to words. You might want to put a glossary of the words in the back of the book. This is also why It’s taken me over a month to write the review, I’ve been thinking hard on how to approach this and being blunt I feel is the best way. Not everyone knows and understands Spanish words after all we are Americans.Read more ›
I’m going to tell you a secret. Young people don’t get it, I know, but just because you are older, that doesn’t mean you can’t fall in love. It just means you have a lot of history behind you – and sometimes working out the details can be a real pain in the backside.
Catalina and Manny both have histories. Some good, like their grown children, and Manny’s grandchildren. And they both have a lot of pain in their backgrounds, as well as all the good stuff. Both are widowed, both have been alone for quite some time. But when Manny shows up on Catalina’s doorstep, literally, to rent a space in her run-down RV Park on the beach on Padre Island, they soon find that finding someone again can be sweet. But it can also be harder than either expect.
Catalina and Manny are great characters. Both over forty, “Why did young people think everyone over forty had one foot in the grave and the other on a banana peel?” both with families, his in Chicago, hers in Houston, they both have their own lives, far from one another. Neither think they should explore the instant attraction. But when Catalina is being harassed on all sides, by quadrupled taxes, storm damage, and a development company who wants to take her little piece of heaven, her dream, away from her, Manny steps in to help.
The story is realistic in ways I completely understand. Trust is difficult. And with both their families extremely important to them, can they find a way to be together? Do they even want to try?
I got a huge kick out of this book.Read more ›
