Hope & Maggie
Can infidelity and the comfort of a best friend help a failing marriage?
Hope's once-doting husband, Harry, swept her off her feet twenty years ago. With her marriage now deteriorating and her heart slowly breaking, Hope finds the excitement she craves in steamy on night stands. Her self-destructive antics are an escape from her frustrating home life. What will happen if Harry finds out?
Maggie is a self-proclaimed bookworm and lover of wine. She is also happily single. Happily Single. Until Brian. Because of a life-changing assault in college, she tries to hard to create an uncomplicated life for herself. When Maggie reluctantly surrenders to a relationship with Brian, a sexy college crush, she soon uncovers the many secrets surrounding his life.
Best friends since college, Hope and Maggie now run a chic, successful wine bar, which also serves as a venue for book clubs. It's a dream come true for both women. It's also a playground for Hope's wandering eye.
A winding story of friendship across time, Hope & Maggie is a novel of love, humor, betrayal, and the unpredictability of life. Just when they thought they had it all figured out...
Having grown up in suburban New Jersey, usually with her face in a book—before Facebook!—Amy developed a love of reading and storytelling. She attended Rowan University, studying English and Literature. She is beyond elated to live near the beach with her husband, Terry, and their three needy felines, Niki, Meio, and Maggie.
Hope & Maggie is loosely based on Amy’s friendships and relationships over time, celebrating the comfort of a best friend, especially when we make bad decisions. The story follows a twenty-year friendship and the thrilling, heartbreaking, funny, and sexy surprises that life throws at us when we’re not looking!
