By 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 unexpected betrayal, Devin and Clark must face the truth about themselves...and decide if their second chance is important enough 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.

Sometimes I think the same thing...it'd be nice to run away and live in a hut on an island and just tan & read all day :)

Here are our teasers for today.

Nice teaser. There have been times I'd like to run away to a hut, too.

Cecelia said...

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!

And thank you for coming by my blog yesterday. :)
