DEGREES OF OBSESSION has it all—juicy romance and heart-pounding suspense. Best of all, it shines light on the fears, follies, and fantasies that drive the choices women make and on the love that redeems them.
The numbers don’t lie. Stalking trumps assassination, intrigue in Los Angeles and La Jolla wins over mystery in Corsica, a 50 year old psychologist pursuing her old college flame outflanks a 32 year old attorney using her mother’s native tongue to infiltrate a Corsican separatist group, and nostalgia run amok outshines a passion for justice.
A garden of roses? That special look in his eyes? The longing? The wink of approval? Knowing that as you’ve grown older together, you can dress alike at an event right down to the matching shoulder straps and the all-in-white look? Knowing he accepts you just as you are…fluffy body and all? A shared interest in racing? Is that what a woman needs?
NO!!!What every woman needs to soothe her soul and give her a new outlook of life is a great hair stylist who has known you forever and frets and snips so carefully, who takes her time to weave her comb through each new strand of hair, lathering it with color, wrapping it tenderly with foil, and when properly “baked”, gives you a fabulous scalp massage and VOILA! A new hairstyle to start the fall season with lifted spirits and a new outlook on life. Thanks for yesterday, Sonja!At almost 71, you keep me feeling and looking young.
