ONE MORE, AT MIDNIGHT
Twelve years ago, Lilah Owens broke Gus Hoffman's heart. Now the has-been actress is back in town, and at every turn is a reminder of her behavior: The bad boy has made good and owns property everywhere! Gus has never forgiven
her, and he makes no secret of the fact. He's also engaged. But that doesn't last long, and neither does his hostility. Still, Lilah has a secret that could destroy their fragile peace -- and any hope of
a future together. Wendy Warren's Once More, at Midnight (4) overcomes its well-worn premise thanks
to its emotional honesty. There's no magical solution for these two sometimes-unsympathetic people.
