This is a delightful book.The pages overflow with well developed characters. Readers say they particularly liked the heroine, Anna, and the travel master, Mr. Charles. Even the secondary characters came alive.

Anna is a successful, bright research librarian at the Library of Congress. Her nasty mother-in-law lives with her, and her narcissistic husband is a document carrier for the U.S. government. (Frankly, I would like to smack Anna's mother-in-law upside the head. She is a mean, manipulative woman.) Anna functions as a caregiver for this awful women.

The plot begins to develop as we realize something has happened to Kevin, the husband. His death sets in motion a string of events, and we soon find out he is a liar and a bigamist. There is a silver lining in the storm clouds, however, and an investigator named Frank Caburn shows up at Anna's door on an icy Washington D.C. day. Frank is the polar opposite of her cheating husband, and he is charged with gathering information about her husband and taking care of her. As Anna peels back the onion of her husband's deceit she lets go of the repressive mentality that has controlled her.

I hope the author will honor my request for a future story that includes some of these characters, says an avid Weger reader. The only disappointment was that Clara-Alice, the mother-in-law, didn't have more of a comeuppance. She disgusted some readers.

This is truly an uplifting story and while the drama is heavy, there are poignant, grab the tissues, moments where Anna thinks of her mother and the support she would have offered. But, this story is not without the trademark Weger humor many of you are familiar with. The secondary characters give the story a lighter tone when it was needed and I especially liked Frank's work partner, Helen.

The story is devoid of immature angst and self absorption and shows how love can and should grow on an emotional level, giving the sensual aspects of the romance more meaning.
