Looking for Real Life
The scrawled graffito on the bathroom wall might be clichéd, but for Claire Wilder, it's a wake-up call. Divorced from her high school sweetheart, she's lost the flavor of life waiting for Andrew to come back.
So Claire leaves everything behind and ends up in her father's hometown of Valentine, Oklahoma. Before she knows it, an overnight stay at the Goodnight Motel has turned into weeks, and she's found something she'd almost forgotten existed—a place to call home. Life is sweet again...until the day her ex-husband arrives in town.
Now Claire has to figure out whether home is truly where the heart is...and if that's with Andrew or in the sleepy town that helped her remember her dreams.

Curtiss Ann Matlock loves to share her experience of Southern living, so she fills her stories with rich local color, basic values and Southern country wisdom. Her books have earned rave reviews, been optioned for film and received numerous awards, among them three nominations for the Romance Writers of America's prestigious RITA Award and two Readers' Choice Awards, given by readers from all over the nation. She currently lives in Alabama.
It has become apparent to Claire, who married her high-school sweetheart then divorced him 15 years later when he took up with a younger woman, that "real life" is out there somewhere and unless she looks, she will not find it. So she quits her job, packs her bags, and heads to Valentine, Oklahoma, hometown to the father she barely remembers. It's not much of a place, but having her car stolen from the Goodnight Motel parking lot compels her to stay awhile, and she discovers that folks there meet their responsibilities with love and honor, and rely on a higher power in times of need. They welcome Claire into their lives, and she not only finds "real life," she also finds love, although she lets it take its own good time. Matlock has set previous novels in Valentine, but her focus is so different in each book that the town seems new each time. A wonderful cast and a perfect setting make for a gentle and reassuring story. Danise Hoover
