This is book 3 of the ‘Seasons’ series by this author but can be read as a standalone. It catches up with the lives of the three couples introduced in the previous books of the series, two in their late 30s or early 40s and one in their 60s. The plot mainly follows two couples. Andi and Kelly and how they cope with overwork and lack of time to develop their relationship, and Elise and Lauren, both in their mid 60s who are taking their time to move their connection forward.
The story has all the ingredients for an entertaining romance with enough conflict and a meaningful scenes. However, the overall tone of the novel is too cheerful even when the characters face a problem which for me it was a bit disconcerting.
There is a very good balance between show and tell with lots of dialogues to set out the conflicts and their resolutions. However, my main issue with this book is that all characters seem to have the same voice despite their differences in age, profession and class. As a result, the dialogues don’t sound natural and realistic. Having said that, the older couple intimate scene is well done and feels authentic. Kudos to the author to present a couple in their 60s as main characters which is rare in lesfic.
Overall, a good romance novel presenting an older couple. 3.5 stars.
