Book Blurb

Jeremy is alone on New Year’s, spending the night in his small apartment. But when his sister leaves a networking website open on his computer, he strikes up a conversation with a stranger. Mesmerized by this stranger's blue eyes, the chat turns into coffee and a surprising realization about his new friend. How will Jeremy’s night end?


Book Review

What a great little story! It starts out as a bit of a fun online discussion, veers into the philosophical (just a little, nothing serious), and then turns very, very sweet for an ending that is actually a new beginning. It's a lot to get across in a mere 15 pages, but it's very well done and had me totally hooked.

Jeremy is lonely. His divorce may be a year behind him, but he doesn't seem to have recovered. There is no new woman in his life, and spending New Year's alone doesn’t exactly cheer him up. Then comes the big surprise: an online chat with a blue-eyed stranger who has him totally fascinated. All the profile picture reveals is the eyes… They agree to have coffee, and Jeremy is in for a big surprise.

If you like stories with an unexpected twist, if you enjoy a bit of mystery, and if you you're looking for something with a sweet ending, then you will probably like this very short book. I totally loved it!
