Betrayed by his wife and best friend, David Severin heads to a small town to reevaluate his life. Wanting to lend a hand is psychologist Amy Simon, who is certain she can help David put his life back together. But David is looking for a lover, not a doctor, and Amy isn't sure that's a role she can fill. Even though characters are well rounded and conflict effective, Jane Toombs' TROUBLE IN TOURMALINE (2) is bogged down by awkward dialogue, especially when David and Amy interact with his daughter.
