Synopsis:

Emily really can’t complain. She’s married to a wonderful man, her high school sweetheart, who still dotes on her as he did when he first laid eyes on her. They have a beautiful home together, and they each enjoy successful careers. On the outside looking in, Emily has what any woman would be perfectly happy with.

But it’s just not enough. Emily can’t help wishing for just a bit more—for that special spark, for that thrill of something new and surprising, for the shivery tingles running down her spine. For real passion—for true romance.

She never expects to find it during the workday and definitely not in the form of a sticky note.

Just one square slip of paper with a few handwritten words, tucked mysteriously into the contents of her purse and dropped right into her small world, marks the first of a slew of sexy surprises Emily couldn’t have anticipated no matter how hard she wished for them. She’s desperately sought after every one of the special moments in store for her, and there’s no question that she deserves them.

Even as Emily eagerly anticipates and thoroughly savors all of the excitement and mystery of what may come, she just can’t guess the roller coaster of emotions she’s soon to experience—or just how much it will change her.

And she may never guess just who—is leading her on the romantic adventure of her dreams.

Just when she feels she’s lost the life and love she most wants to have, she finds them—in the last place she’d ever think to look.

My Review:  

High school, college and into first jobs all with the same man. That’s a growing time for people, couples. Things change and then things start to settle into a routine for the years. Oh dear, that sounds dreary, doesn’t it? It doesn’t have to be. Men, in particular, can settle into routines, while women tend to still want romance. That’s why we have created such a market for romance novels!


Emily wants something she can’t seem to convey to Stephen and she’s stopped trying. Then there’s the tiny sticky note in her purse. Who put it there? It’s all so exciting and she feels wonderful and feminine and excited.


There’s a new guy at work, too. He’s really good looking and he seems to be flirting with her. Is it her imagination?


When things fall apart and she needs to feel safe and loved, there’s only one place to be.


This little story packs a punch. Ms. Avery has really done an excellent job of putting those emotions out there on the page for you to feel right along with Emily. It’s marvelous! Wish it were longer, and yet perhaps the beauty of it is the fact that it’s such a small gem of a story. Definitely, a sweet summer read!
