Reinventing Rita: A Midlife Moxie Novel (Midlife Moxie Novel Series #1) (Paperback)
Is fifty too old to start over and reinvent yourself?
That's what Rita Reynolds has to decide after a series of unwelcome occurrences arrive in time for her fiftieth birthday. First, she learns that her college-age son would rather spend the summer with his new girlfriend rather than at home with his mother. Then comes the unpleasant news that her part-time job might be ending, which will toss her back into the job market.
Underscoring it all is the realization that since her divorce, she's been coasting on the highway of life. Now, it's time to hit the gas and start moving ahead, despite the bumps in the road that keep slowing her down!
A chance to teach a six-week baking class brings Rita's almost-forgotten dream of becoming a professional baker back to the surface. Can she overcome her fear that it might be too late for a midlife makeover? With the help of two friends—Donna, her employer, and Karen, her ex-husband's second wife—she's about to find out.
