Image of Tempting Fate: A Novel

Staying true to her ability to bring her characters to life through emotional inner dialogue and beautifully complex relationships, Green’s latest novel tells a tale of consequences and understanding, showing that when one door closes, another opens.

Gabby Cartwright is perfectly content in her life. In her early 40s, Gabby has been happily married to an adoring man for almost two decades, and their house is filled with the love of their two teenage daughters. Since Gabby has absolutely no reason to mess with her comfortable life, she finds no harm in a night of flirtation with a beautiful, younger man who buys her a drink. The attention makes Gabby feel young and alive — a feeling she had long forgotten. As the bar flirtation turns into a secret friendship, Gabby runs the risk of losing everything she’s known and having to rebuild her life anew. (ST. MARTIN’S, Mar., 352 pp., $25.99)
