From bestselling author, Darian Wilk, comes a story about divorce, change, acceptance, and love in her latest novel, Reinventing Claire.
People get divorced, but that's what happens to other people. That's what Claire thought anyway, until her husband, Charlie, tells her he wants a divorce.
Claire has no choice but to take on the title of Divorced Woman, and face the question she has no idea how to answer. Who is Claire without Charlie? Her family believes her newly divorced woes can be cured by landing herself a boyfriend. With her dating dunce cap in hand, Claire stumbles her way through the foreign territory of online dating.
A teacher from hell, a softball coach, and a sap later, Claire proclaims herself the dating idiot she thought she was, and fears she's doomed to be a lonely, crazy cat lady. But an accidental run-in with an old acquaintance might change everything. What starts with comparing dating battle wounds over a cup of coffee, quickly turns into something Claire had given up on.
As Claire discovers maybe there is love after Charlie after all, Charlie realizes his mistake. He wants her back, and he'll do anything to prove it to her. Now Claire must choose who deserves her heart, and if she's really willing to give it away again.
About the Author - Darian Wilk
I'm a women's fiction writer, and my current titles include Love Unfinished, and Reinventing Claire. I love the challenge and thrill of putting words onto paper, and forming it into a story. For me, the only thing better than that are my kids. On the occasions I'm not engulfed in writing, you'll find me reading a book, either for fun or for review on my blog, Crazy Lady with a Pen. When I'm not reading, I'm spending time with my friends and family. Life is too short to pass those beautiful little moments life has to offer by, I want to soak up every moment I can. For more information about me, my books, reviews, or my blog, please visit my website, www.DarianWilk.weebly.com
PLEASE WELCOME DARIAN TO BOOKHOUNDS!
1. What is the first book you remember reading by yourself as a child?
Little Women. I was curled up on the couch and finished it in two days. It was in that moment of reading the first few chapters that I fell in love with books and how simple words could create something so beautiful.
2. What are you reading right now?
Defiant Heart by Marty Steere, and Vestige by Deb Hanrahan
3. How does your garden grow?
I would love to say with tender care, nourishment, and something heartwarming but the truth is, I’m a plant killer. You don’t want me anywhere near your garden. But I’m great with kids :) And driving really fast, I’m good at that too…but I won’t do that with your kids in the car, I promise.
4. What is the last thing you Googled?
Radon Mitigation Contractors – exciting, right!?!
5. What makes you cringe?
Seeing people chew with their mouth open, don’t even mention that gross smacking sound it makes when they chew. It’s like watching a train wreck to me; I’m disgusted by it but can’t stop watching the food bounce around in their mouth. So gross!
