Teaser Tuesday: Feeling the Vibe: A Novel by Candace Dow

Teaser Tuesdays, hosted by MizB, asks you to choose two sentences at random from your current read. Identify the author and title for readers.

Feelin' the VibeBy the third day in Nicaragua, I was tempted to build a little hut and run away from it all, just Devin and me. We could leave it all behind for the peace and tranquility of this small island. (ch. 36)

Feelin' the Vibe: A Novel by Candace Dow (Paperback - Sept. 24, 2009)

Publisher's description: "He's Washington's hottest new political figure, blessed with savvy charisma, and a perfect wife. She runs Baltimore's most respected social program and is happily married to the man who helped put her life back together. But Devin and Clark never forgot the love that was once their world. Now a chance meeting...is plunging both their marriages into disaster. And even if they can make things right amid lies and unexpeced betrayal, Devin and Clark must face the truth about themselves...and decide if their second chance is important enought to risk losing everything they have."

Comments: Well written, with appealing dialogue that moves the story along quickly. There are two narrators, Devin and Clark, and their points of view mesh well to tell their love story. The author has added twelve pertinent questions in a Reading Group Guide at the end of the novel.

Author: Candace Dow is the author of six novels. A graduate of the University of Maryland Eastern Shore and Johns Hopkins University, she is at work on her next book.

  24. Mmm...interesting. Running away and hiding from it all often sounds like a good plan in my head, but I know it's never good in practice. I wonder how these two work it out. Great teaser!
