BOOK REVIEW- LOVE OF A LIFETIME by Carol Voss
A childhood love…
Maggie McGuire can’t remember when she didn’t love Tony Stefano. Growing up together in the rolling hills and forests outside Noah’s Crossing, Wisconsin, the two had been inseparable, spending sunny summer days swimming in Rainbow Lake and rainy ones huddled in her treehouse sharing the best secrets. Tony was Maggie’s closest friend, and as teenagers, one day their friendship blossomed into more.
Torn apart by time…
Run out of town by a vengeful sheriff, Tony disappeared to parts unknown, leaving Maggie devastated and with a secret she couldn’t share. Ten years later, after Tony’s grandmother falls ill, he rides back into Maggie’s life on his Harley, as if nothing has changed. Something Maggie only wishes were true because although it’s too late, she knows she must tell him he’s a father, and there’s no way to do that without breaking his heart… and risking her own. AMAZON 3.5 STARS
I liked although its not a favorite , it was still good. It had good main characters with good secondary ones as well. It was emotional, and the problems were real. So many misunderstandings between Tony and his grandmother. Tony had a lot of anger to work through and he definitely had to learn to stop running when things got too emotional for him. And in this story he finally does. He also gets to see the problems that his running helped make.
Maggie looks like she had a lot of responsibility on her shoulders; which she lovingly accepted.
For me, the story seemed to drag a few times and caused me to give it a lower rating.
