What happens when a successful, determined middle-aged man falls in love with a woman who has been happily married for twenty-seven years? If he’s Avery Laird, he hires her to work for him.

Buddy Middleton is positive that the job his wife, Ginger, is offered is too good to be true, that Avery Laird has an ulterior motive, but he can’t prove it. When Buddy voices his doubts and urges her not to take it, he makes Ginger feel as though she isn’t worth the offer. Determined to prove him wrong, Ginger goes to work for Laird and saves him over half a million dollars in the first real estate deal she handles for his company.

Flush with success, Ginger believes that the problems she and Buddy had are over. But then they have an unexpected guest from the past, a fellow named Hoot with whom Buddy played professional baseball when they were newly married. Hoot tells Ginger the true reason Buddy quit baseball, a subject they had always avoided. When Ginger confronts Buddy with what she has learned, trouble really begins… and Avery is there waiting.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

Loved this story it made me think about how many times my own marriage has changed and what if anything could come between me and my husband.


This book was great. Very down to earth on things that really happen in today’s world. The way the author writes it while you are reading it you feel like you are part of what is going on.


Ms. Schwartz is adept at creating scene descriptions and characterizations without overdoing it. This allows you, the reader, to visualize with clarity and keeps the story moving along. Intrigue and curiosity are introduced early in the novel and caused me to keep turning the pages.


I loved this book! I didn’t realize until I finished that it was the same author who wrote The Writers Conference, another fine novel.


Book was well written. The charming story stimulated one to access their own marriage and see what if any changes need to be made. All married couples may benefit from reading this book.

About The Author

I was born and raised in Buffalo, New York. Reading was my escape from the legendary Buffalo winters and probably contributed to my becoming a writer. I like strong plots and strong characters. A new book is a new adventure!

The first sentence in my novel REALITIES–My children are gambling–was the first line of a poem which grew into a book that was published in the US, the UK, and Sweden, where it was a selection of the Swedish Book-of-the-Month Club.

THE LAST SEASON, THE STORY OF A MARRIAGE, started with an image of three middle-aged adults sitting at a dinner table, a married couple and an unmarried man. When the husband asked the man what his intentions were, the fellow replied, “I intend to marry your wife.” The image was a gift, and I had to run with it.

The seed for THE WRITERS’ CONFERENCE was an experience I had at a conference. I had never been in an atmosphere that intense. When I came home, I started working on the book. I wanted to capture that intensity.

It took over thirty years to write THE WRITERS’ CONFERENCE. I would take it out every five years, work on it, and put it away again. My goal was a fast, entertaining read that pulled the curtain back on a world most readers will never see.

You can read more about me and my novels–REALITIES, THE LAST SEASON, THE STORY OF A MARRIAGE, and THE WRITERS’ CONFERENCE– and the Giffort Street stories at
