Four couples take a chance on love – a cop and a rec director, surrounded by a swimming pool of special needs kids; a corporate troubleshooter and one of his prime suspects, trying to unravel threats and lies before a business is ruined and someone gets hurt; a radio personality versus his alter ego, and the girl who might love them both; and the office good girl, ready to cave under nasty office politics, rescued by the new guy at work, who comes to her door because of a nasty trick played on them both. From summer to fall to the holidays, love blooms in Tabor Heights.

This second story in Michelle L. Levigne’s anthology has a strange beginning. One minute I’m all set to like Jake, then I’m thrown for a loop when he admits to stalking Bailey, and promptly does it again. Then Michelle gives him something much more important to think about.

While you are pondering on the bizarre opening, Michelle’s other characters get down and dirty towards Bailey. This is a hard hitting no holds barred story that still retains a thread of tenderness in the members of the local Church and their faith in God, even when Bailey’s faith is tested to breaking point, and Jake’s past comes back to haunt him.

Every character in this story comes alive, be their part small or large, they become intricate pieces in the unfolding puzzle. They come across as real as someone you may meet on the street. They experience emotions we share with our best friends.

Good and evil waltz through this story and it is well worth giving yourself a treat, and discover what happens when the music stops.
