“Carrie’s Quest,” by Pam Sievers is a romance novel, sure, but not your typical impossibly-beautiful-twenty-something-woman meets impossibly-handsome-twenty-something-man with both of them making bad decisions based on misunderstandings along the way romance. It doesn’t rely on heat or lust or sexual chemistry to get you through the day. It is a grown-up romance novel.
Carrie is 38 years old, smart, and burdened by the words of her Aunt, who made it clear that a woman who wasn’t married by 40 will be a social pariah. Against her better judgment, she turns to on-line dating months in advance to help her find a date to her cousin’s wedding.
I don’t want to give away too many spoilers, but this is more than just a man-meets-woman novel. Although the plot centers around Carrie’s love life, it is really more about looking beyond surfaces and first impressions, second chances, and confronting demons. What makes Carrie good at her job might just be what undoes her – and why is she like that? Is she emulating an image or reality? How much can we control and plan for?
