Book Review: Housebroken by Charmaine Gordon

Housebroken: A River’s Edge Romantic Suspense

[Kindle Edition]

5 stars

An Amusing Look at an Empty Nest

Charmaine Gordon gives us a wonderful novella about couple who have just achieved empty nest status. Steve and Sally Atwood decide it’s their time to live, they’re still young enough to begin a perpetual honeymoon in a new, smaller home in a community suited for them and not for a young family. Everything is going well, they find the home of their dreams, their passion is as good as it’s ever been (better even without the interruptions), and their new neighbors are definitely their kind of people.

But there are unexpected hurdles – Steve and Sally face them head on and together.

The story is a quick and refreshing read. Ms. Gordon’s writing allows the reader to share in the joy of planning, the trepidation from set-backs, and cheer as they move forward from their old life. As half of a long-time married couple about to embark on our perpetual honeymoon, I truly enjoyed this story; it gave me lots of hope, laughter and a sense of adventure. I recommend it for all.

  1. Reblogged this on Author Charmaine Gordon and commented:
    An author has an idea and writes, and writes. If you’re forunate, the story is published. Who will read it? And then reviews come in. This one touches my heart. Chelle Cordero ‘get’s it. She understands the dilemma of empty nest, the mixed feelings of waving goodbye to the last child as they move on and you and your husband wonder what happens next. . .to us?

  2. How exciting to read this nifty review- 5 star no less, by the renowned journalist, that’s you, Chelle Cordero.

    • Charmaine, I loved this story and, for me, it is so very timely.
      I did try to post this on Amazon but they surmised that we “know” each other and wouldn’t print it, lol. I’m glad I am friends with such a talented author.
