One Halloween Evening
by Susan Lyons
Widowed Lynne is in a new town and so far her social life has revolved around her son and his family. She’s nervous about meeting new people but when her well-intentioned daughter-in-law arranges an invitation to a costume party, and even provides her with an escort, how can she say no? After all, it’s only one evening out of her life. But what an amazing evening it turns out to be – an evening that has her imagining all sorts of new possibilities.
One Halloween Evening is a light, sweet read about Lynne and Paul, two people starting again after their first marriages are over. On this Halloween night, their first date consists of a walk through the neighborhood, a run-in with a variety of trick-or-treaters, and a discovery that starting new relationships doesn’t have to be scary.
I enjoyed the description of all the Halloween costumes, especially Lynne and Paul’s, and thought the author did a nice job bringing the Halloween setting to the pages of this story. Their conversation both at and after the Halloween party was touching as well. It’s always nice to read about romance that strikes later in life and to remember that graying hair, wrinkles, and a few extra pounds don’t stop anyone from needing or giving love…even at the witching hour!
