Welcome to the world of Sunshine Bay, a small fictional community on Vancouver Island, just off Canada’s west coast.

Jeanine Lauren writes stories about the women who live there. Women who have lived a few decades and experienced life’s trials and tribulations, joys and celebrations.

IIn her latest book, meet Susan, a woman who has worked hard at her job and her marriage. She and her husband Richard are heading toward their golden years and a much-deserved retirement. At least that’s what the plan was.

But plans have a way of changing, especially when she finds out her husband has been lying to her, her financial future isn’t as secure as she believed, and now Richard is leaving to spend time with his brother in Palm Springs. The same brother who left his wife of three decades to live with a woman half his age!

Susan is left alone to consider a Plan B and Sid Jones, a love from her past, is happy to help her figure out that Plan B.

For Susan, life without Richard doesn’t seem possible at first, but as she discovers more lies, and remembers what it’s like to be noticed by a man, life without Richard starts to look possible. Will Susan and Richard become another gray divorce statistic? Or is there still hope that he will come home to love?
