About the Author
Growing up, I wrote a few things for school—reports and a few creative writing projects for English class—but never really thought about writing novels until after I married my David. Even then, what little writing I did leaned toward Mystery. I didn’t discover Romance until my husband and I traveled to Greece. It was hot—I mean really hot—and we ducked inside the Athens Hilton to bask in their air conditioned gift shop. I was looking at a rack of paperback books and picked up one entitled Born in Fire by someone named Sarah Hardesty. I stayed in our air-conditioned hotel room for two days reading that novel nearly non-stop and decided then and there what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. I wanted to write Romance. It wasn’t until I was back home and hunting through a Barnes and Noble for more books by Sarah Hardesty that I learned the author was actually Nora Roberts, and I’d like to thank her for writing that book because reading it certainly turned my life around. My first published contemporary romance—Once in a Lifetime—is the 2016 Winner of the Beverly Hills Book Award. As Jayne Nichols, I write contemporary romance (Wish Fulfilled Series), romantic suspense (Madrona Point Series), and single-title romantic thrillers, and I love every minute of it.

I am waiting to see if there is a follow up book to this one because the author wrapped it up beautifully but left room for another book. I fell in love with Sam and Lillian and I hope for them that there isn't because it would spell trouble in their HEA.
The leading lady is older I wasn't sure how this would pan out but Alice wove such a great love story that it wasn't hard to see these people together. Jorgé: Am not gonna lie I was not a fan, was happy with the way he ended. One of the most inventive ways I have seen to get rid of a bad guy. HAHA I will have to remember it if I ever get kidnapped.
I received a complimentary copy of this book.
Lillian struggled for many years with an inattentive husband and then after his death because she essentially gave up everything for him, his career, and their family. When she finally comes to the realization that she needs something for herself, to get to know who she is as a woman and prove that she can be of worth and do something worthwhile, she chooses school. Finding herself in the arms and classroom of Sam is something she didn't expect.
Sam is struggling with his own immediate family as well as having to take on a basic math class that he would generally avoid. Finding Lillian in his arms and his classroom, however, was a reward he wasn't expecting. Throughout the story he falls deeper into all that is Lillian. Her strength, her heart, her generosity, her determination, her intelligence. With so much to keep him in her orbit he can't help but want to keep her in his.
There's quite a bit of external drama that brews on the periphery until all the players come together. I wasn't expecting the ending to be slightly open in terms of one of those meetings, but the resolution was pretty satisfying. There was a small paragraph of summation of the future which was a little disappointing because of length and the fact that important things were given only a few words, but the content was sweet, hopeful, and healing. Overall, it was an interesting story but had a tendency to drag for the first half.
Read and willingly reviewed this ARC for Hidden Gems.
