Now in her mid-forties, Cricket has found herself existing with the unexpected loss of her long-time lover Gerry. With the support of her circle of friends and the love of her Bernese dog, Monkey, she continues to live, breathe, and hope for the emptiness to fade.

Resigned to believing the hurt will stay, an unforeseen possibility of a new love interest breezes into her life through meeting new friends.
Can Cricket lower her guard and allow another person into her heart, or will she push them away and forever struggle with the constant heartbreak?
A touching story that portrays every day struggles with unpredictable scenarios.

My View:

Cricket is just a really sweet, gentle story of a widow who is ready to move ahead with her life a few years after her wife dies. With the support of her best friend Mar and her dog Monkey by her side, Cricket opens herself up for whatever the universe has to offer. Even if it means meeting her high school bully 30 years later or taking in a homeless teen and maybe even a chance to fall in love again, She is there.

This charming, engaging and well written tale drew me in very quickly. I was unable to put the book down. I loved it, all of it. I adored the cast of characters, their interplay, the humor and serious moments are all amazing. There are so many feel good “Aww that is so sweet” moments that I quickly lost count and there were a few unexpected surprises to keep things really interesting. There is a serene tone to this book but don’t let that fool you, this book will capture your attention and your heart and you will love it too.
