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
