Gloria's Guy (Paperback)


Special Order—Subject to Availability
It's been over twenty years since Guy ditched his high-school sweetheart Gloria at the prom, and they haven't spoken since. Now he's a failed LA lawyer, divorced, and working at his brother's golf resort in Ontario. A wedding conveniently brings old friends Gloria, Eva, Leslie, Peggy, and Peggy's mom, Jessie, to the resort for a weekend, so Guy nervously promises he'll stay away. But Jessie--also the crew's former teacher--decides to play matchmaker, determined to reconnect the long-split pair.

Between the reunion of old friends, each with their own surprises, Gloria and Guy are pushed together, learning the power of forgiveness, the warmth of opening up to someone, and the possibilities of a re-written future.
