Golden State by Cynthia Hamilton
Roxanne Platt knows she's not perfect. But she also knows there's got to be more to life than scanning groceries. As she scours the Classifieds, she is struck by the lack of opportunities, contrasted by the almost endless real estate ads. Recalling an agent in her checkout line--short on sense and long on enthusiasm--Roxanne wonders why she couldn't enjoy the same success as Lois Bronsen--top 2% in the county.
After first dismissing the notion as absurd, Roxanne boldly takes the plunge into the character-ridden world of real estate. What she discovers as she wades into shark-infested waters is a talent for negotiating and problem-solving, and an inner strength she didn't know she possessed--not to mention a pool of eligible bachelors.
Armed with an acerbic wit, her best friend Andrea's unwavering support, and the willpower to make a better life for herself and her son, Roxanne forges ahead. The unintended consequences of romantic encounters thrill Andrea to no end, but keep Roxanne's head spinning. Can she fall in love, keep her dignity and still become successful?Enjoy the fun while she finds out!
About The Author...
A lifelong reader and lover of the written word, I turned to writing as a means of coping with a debilitating illness in 2000. Since then, I've written eleven books and have published nine of them. In addition to contemporary fiction, I write detective mysteries--THE MADELINE DAWKINS MYSTERY SERIES--and some memoir-- FINDING RUTH and ONCE UPON A LYME...A TALE OF TWO JOURNEYS.
My Madeline series has really captured my mind and heart, allowing me to expand on one woman's nightmare by giving her dual careers and a supporting cast of characters, with special emphasis on Mike Delaney, her partner in love and crime. THE TROUBLE WITH PARADISE is the fourth installment in the series and is now available. As with the rest of the books, it is centered around Santa Barbara, California, Madeline's hometown as well as mine.
Being a voracious reader, I've always got my Kindle with me, taking advantage of any spare moment to read, even while eating. In addition to reading and writing, I love nothing more than being outside, preferably taking hours-long walks with my husband.
I share my reading experiences through my reviews, though I only review books that I have truly enjoyed. I would take no pleasure in criticizing another author's work. The reading experience is so subjective; if I'm not enjoying what I'm reading, I will move on to something else, but that is no reflection on the author or the book.
