as reviewed by Chelle Cordero

You are never too weathered to learn how to love again. Despite her losses, young age, and past regrets, Celeste learns how to fall in love when she meets a younger man, Paul. As if they had known each other forever they find things they have in common as well as a mutual attraction. Hiking mountains and conquering inhibitions, Celeste is warmed by Paul’s encouragement and zest for life. The author uses humor, compassion, spicy love scenes, and endearing friendships to paint a very realistic and intriguing story.

This tale of bittersweet memories and truly living for today captured this reader – No Time for Green Bananas becomes more than a phrase, it becomes a mantra to live by and a lesson not to waste time on uncertainties. As always, Charmaine Gordon has delivered a fantastic read.

“I didn’t realize at the time while working as an actor in NYC, I’d become a sponge soaking up dialogue, setting, and stage directions. I learned many tools of writing during the years watching directors like Mike Nichols and actors including Harrison Ford, Anthony Hopkins, and Billy Crystal. And would you believe, I was Geraldine Ferraro’s stand-in leg model, my first job giving me entrée into all the Unions needed to work. When the sweet time ended, I began another career and creative juices flowed.”

Charmaine’s latest project is a series of shorts about Mature Romances. Her novel To Be Continued has been optioned for film by Willy Gilly Productions in Orange County NY.
