DECEMBER, 2017 Grace’s Turmoil By: Peter Perrin The Plot: Divorced and emotionally dam- aged, artist Grace Stollery wants noth- ing more than to spend her semi- retirement painting and let time heal her emotional scars. So, she hides herself away in The Grange retire- ment village and swears off men. But when dashing widower Al- fred Nobel moves into her retirement village he turns her life upside down and her heart inside out by awakening feelings she wants to keep dormant. Alfred sets out to woo Grace, but she is initially cautious. Undeterred he persists and slowly Grace warms to him and he begins to win her over. As if Grace‟s resistance to his charms isn‟t enough of a problem for Alfred there is a further complication. Grace may be reluctant to get involved with him, but the village‟s resident femme fatale isn‟t. She likes what she sees and wants him for herself. Will she succeed in driving a wedge between Alfred and Grace? ***** Amazon Review by Poppy: “The opening scene really pulled me into the book and from that point I was spell- bound.” https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/customer-reviews/ R2ZL832XEJJJC2 Available in E-Book At: Devine Destinies Amazon Barnes and Noble Prices: Print: $10.00 Digital: $4.99 Length: 306 Pages Heat Level: PG-13 An Excerpt: Looking at him sent a spontaneous burst of attraction rip- pling through her. It caught her by surprise. Becoming attracted to anybody was the last thing she needed right then. Her di- vorce was too recent and too painful. All she wanted was to focus on her painting to block out the pain. Although she had- n‟t come here to look for a man, there was no denying how she reacted to the sight of him. She wondered how she would cope when they met. And she couldn‟t help feeling he was going to have quite an impact on her life. Whether it would be a good impact or not, was the six-million-dollar question. He might be the greatest thing since sliced bread! Or he could turn out to be a snake in the grass like her ex-husband.
