Twice in a Lifetime, by Rebecca Flanders

Read from February 11 to 13, 2013

 I read Twice in a Lifetime for the week-long February Toppler, of the You'll Love This One group on Goodreads.  

The toppler theme is It's a Love / Hate Thing, and the idea is to read as many books as possible within the theme.  I decided to fall back on some old favorites of mine, some oldies-but-goodies, that will be quick reads.

Twice in a Lifetime is one such old favorite, that I have read many times over the past 30 years.  The storyline has such a good romance that it was perfect for the toppler!

Barbara, a young widow, keeps fighting her attraction to Kyle, her sister's brother-in-law, because Barbara believes that true love only happens once in a lifetime.  Does Kyle succeed in convincing Barbara that true love can come along twice in a lifetime?   

Spoiler Alert:  Well, yes, he does.  But the fun part is reading about how Kyle convinces her! 

(I'm not really sure why this Romance novel, written in 1983, is such a favorite of mine, while the 2012 Romance novel  Waking Up Married barely rated Three Kitties.  But it is.  Oh, well.)

This book qualifies for
2013 Goodreads Reading Challenge
