THE DRIFTER (3) by Kate Hoffmann: Outdoorsman Charles Templeton has learned to live his life without regrets and has put aside all personal relationships. Now he wonders if his life has meant anything. The woman he left behind is in Boulder, Colo., where he'll be lecturing. Chef Eve Keller hasn't forgotten Charles but doesn't trust that he will ever change. But she may be in store for a surprise. While the characters are sympathetic, Hoffmann's well-worn plot doesn't offer anything especially fresh.
