When Maddy’s son, who was supposed to
drive her to her niece’s wedding, stands her up, he offers
to have his best friend Tonio drive her.
Tonio has been attracted to Maddy since
he met her at a Christmas party, but after months of
flirting, he finally has her undivided attention for 6
hours, and figures this is his second chance to be with her.
Can he convince her that he doesn’t
want just one weekend fling?
Querida is one of those books that linger with
you long after the book is over. I truly enjoyed
Querida. Jamie Craig did a wonderful job portraying
the older woman/younger man story with realism and a lot of
emotional depth. This is not just one of those “cougar” on
the prowl stories. Tonio’s respect and affection for Maddy
is fantastically written. Maddy’s age is really never an
issue, and I appreciate that Ms. Craig did not make that an
insurmountable issue for the couple. Querida
is one for the keeper shelf.
