What's that? What is the book about? Well let me tell you

Is it a crime of passion or cruel twist of fate?
One summer’s day Betty let love carry her a step too far. That exquisite sun dappled afternoon became one of her best memories but also the catalyst for the worst experience of her life. Now elderly, Betty has been running from her past since she was a teenager, and it’s about to catch up with her. Will the experience be as awful as she fears or wonderful beyond imagining?

Praise for MDOY:

  1. Okay......how cool is that!

    Not the having to write to deal with the testosterone....LOL...even though that's a tad cool too! The book and the give aways--are nifty, but how cool is it that she GETS to put things in writing and have them bound AND she hangs around with the likes of us!
    THAT......is way cool!!

  2. Thank you for this lovely post Carol! Mel, you made me laugh! I am so not cool but hanging around with you lot is very cool!

  3. Good luck with the contest, and good luck to Ms. Kirkby!
