Boomer Lit Friday - 2


Welcome to Week 2 of Boomer Lit Friday. Ever wonder how divorced boomer moms meet men in the suburbs? Sometimes, it's in the most unexpected places. Let's join Leah Gold while she waits for her daughter, Ali, in Chapter 12 of THE PRINCE CHARMING HOAX.
Leah was seated in the school bleachers one late afternoon, working on a press release for a client while waiting for Ali’s cheerleading practice to end. “Is this seat taken?” a deep male voice asked.

Leah was absorbed in her copy and jumped, dropping her pen. She leaned down to retrieve it, then looked over to the spot next to her on the bleachers. She raised her eyebrow as she looked up at him and said, “This seat?”

“Yes, is anyone sitting there?”

Leah had to grin. The bleachers were practically empty. He could have sat anywhere. She looked more carefully at him. She guessed he was about fifty years old and not quite six feet tall. He had thinning hair and wore jeans, sneakers, and a University of Florida sweatshirt.

“No, no one is sitting there now. I guess you’d better hurry and grab the seat before they’re all taken.” 
He smiled. “Do you mind if I sit next to you?"

Will Mr. University of Florida turn out to be Leah's Prince Charming or get on her "meet and delete" list? Find out...Purchase the ebook or paperback at

  8. Love the excerpt. Giving the guy high marks for his approach. I read the amazon sample last night and immediately downloaded it. You are next on my To Read list, right after Ernest Hemingway.* Really.

    *The Sun Also Rises for book group.
