Jones' story is filled with snappy
dialogue and likable characters you sometimes want to shake some sense into. The message to shake off anything that will keep you from having a fulfilling life shines through, but the story
ends just as the plot gains momentum, leaving you feeling that there's more
to be told. One can hope there will be
a sequel.

Competitive siblings Joe and Kat Cromwell are both on crutches with broken bones. So they decide to travel to their childhood vacation cottage for some much-needed physical and emotional recuperation from their demanding jobs and financial woes, and to check out where their busybody mother is thinking of relocating. But what they find in that old cottage may unlock the pain of their past and lead to finding love and healing. (STEEPLE HILL, Mar., 336 pp., $13.95)
