Ginger is happily married to Buddy.

Buddy and Ginger have been married for 27 years. Avery is divorced. When he meets Ginger, he believes he has found the perfect mate. Determined to marry her, he offers her a job at an inflated salary.

Ginger saves Avery a fortune in the first real estate deal she handles for his company. Flush with success, she believes the problems she and Buddy had are over. But everything changes when they have an unexpected guest from the past...

See how even the best marriage can be fragile as Ginger and Buddy take turns telling their story.

“The only suggestion I would have for a reader would be to make sure you have enough time set aside to read it from start to finish, because once you pick it up, you won’t want to put it down until the very end.” Tracy A. Fischer for Readers’ Favorite.

From the Inside Flap:

Excerpt from The Last Season, The Story of a Marriage
Avery helped me with my coat and walked me to my car.  There was a quality to his attentiveness that I hadn't noticed before, something I couldn't name.  It was enormously flattering.  Later, much later, I realized that I was responding to more than his job offer.  But that day I was unaware of his intentions.  He wanted me to work for him; he valued my ideas and my judgment, and he was offering me a salary that was beyond anything  I would have dared to ask for a part-time job.  It was incredible, which is exactly what Buddy said that night after I told him about the offer.

"Sixty thousand for a part-time job!" Buddy said, looking at me skeptically.  "That's incredible!  There has to be a hook somewhere."

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. My first novel, REALITIES, was published in hardcover and paperback in the US and the UK, and was a selection of the Swedish Book-of-the-Month Club. The idea for a novel can come from anywhere. 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. 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 www.mariandschwartz.com
