THE RIDE OF HER LIFE
Moore's novel has a plot that could be more than a few readers' fantasy. With a heroine who has always lived the safe, steady life that is expected of so many of us deciding to ditch that life for a cross-country motorcycle adventure and a handsome biker from her past, what more could we want? In this case, a little more depth to the hero, but other than that, this is a good love story. A devastating illness adds a somber note to the story.
Dean isn't exactly straight with Sarah either. He's not the hard-drinking rock-band roadie that Sarah thinks he is; he's a counselor for troubled teens who has been sober for years. As the miles fly by, Dean and Sarah fall in love, but while Dean is optimistic that Sarah will forgive him for his lie, Sarah is sure that hers is a death sentence for any future that they may have together.
