The Class of '85 Series
Once upon a time on a moonlit night, Anna and Rick shared the most perfect kiss this side of The Princess Bride. And then, terrified by the feelings Rick's kiss aroused in her, she did something monumentally stupid: she ran away.
Now, twenty-five years later, Anna is divorced, older, hopefully a little wiser . . . and wondering what might have been if she hadn’t fled that night. At Summerville High’s Class of '85 reunion she’s determined to find out.
Can she help Rick get past his bitterness, and get over her own regrets, to finally fulfill the happily-ever-after promise of that amazing kiss?
Clare C's Review
The title, a line from a David Bowie song, drew me to the novel. Since it took place during a reunion for the Class of 85, there were plenty of 80s references to keep the nostalgia fresh. The story, however, doesn’t rely on evoking memories. It focuses on moving on from past mistakes and grabbing love with both hands.
Stories like this are the reason I first became addicted to romance novels. Ms. Halpin’s friendly writing style draws the reader in. Her excellent development of characters and plot pacing keep you there. I felt as if I knew Anna. I think I’ve been Anna before. At some point, I think we all have, and that’s only one of the reasons she is a captivating character. I highly recommend this very sweet romance.
