Time Flies (Compact Disc)
June 2013 Indie Next List
“Newly single metal sculptor Melanie isn't up for her high school reunion, but when her best friend insists and an old flame contacts her, she tells herself that revisiting the past might help her find her way into the future. It's only after a raucous road trip replete with tunes that will get readers of a certain age humming under their breath, however, that Melanie does find a way forward-just not the one she expected. Like all of Cook's novels, Time Flies will make you laugh and cry, get you thinking, and leave you with the feeling that the best part of your own life has only just begun!”
— Jill Miner, Saturn Booksellers, Gaylord, MI
Years ago, Melanie followed her husband, Kurt, from the New England beach town where their two young sons were thriving to the suburbs of Atlanta. She's carved out a life as a successful metal sculptor, but when Kurt leaves her for another woman, having the tools to cut up their marriage bed is small consolation. She's old enough to know that high school reunions are often a big disappointment, but when her best friend makes her buy a ticket and an old flame gets in touch to see whether she'll be going, she fantasizes that returning to her past might help her find her future...until her driving phobia resurfaces and threatens to hold her back from the adventure of a lifetime.
