The pain in Tess Dyer’s heart stems from a lifetime of rejection: by her distant mother, by a string of one-night stands, and by her husband, Jason. He promised to love her forever, yet here she is, divorced and shunned in her own town. She tries everything to dull the pain: sex, work, and endlessly cleaning the house. Finally, in a fit of despair, she abandons the small town of Brookfield, Maine, for an even smaller town, determined to start over with a clean slate. But she can’t run from the demons in her head, and she soon falls back on her old habits, this time with the help of her sexy new neighbor Brian. Though she tells herself he is just a warm body to dull the pain, his kindness has a soothing effect on her bruised heart. But the fear of losing his love is always there, and before long, Tess’ past threatens to destroy her fragile new happiness.

Ultimately, she must make a choice: continue drifting through life, or confront the cruel realities of her past and start living. A dramatic departure from contemporary chick-lit, Waiting for Spring is a moving novel about a real woman struggling to find her place in the world.

    " While this book doesn't fall into my normal reading genres, I'm very happy I went outside my comfort zone and read this book. I found the characters well developed, even the ones I didn't like. The story kept me engaged and I even engaged the text to speech feature (which I don't really like) so that I could "read" in the car. I was very moved by this book, both positively and negatively. I found myself saddened by some of the trials of the characters and filled with hope by others. Thank you RJ for your story. It was very enjoyable. "

    " This book could benefit from serious editing, 30 percent of it could and should be deleted. Length does not always equal quality. Excess can (and did) result in a very annoyed reader. "

    " I thought the beginning really captured the sadness and pain of the main character Tess. But it never ended and just seemed to get worse and worse. I hated the constant "counting" the main character did--from the steps to her apartment to how many days since something bad happened. Maybe I missed something there. I obviously got that Tess used sex for validation, etc...but the sex in this book (usually called f--ing) got old really fast. For someone who supposedly thought in terms of color, and creative colors at that, there was nothing bright and colorful about Tess or this story. I thought the drug dealer and Rachel story was bizarre and anyone could see how that was going to end. I hated the stupid story about the broken pin...I feel terrible for being so mean, but the ending was so neat and tidy and unbelievable I just had to cringe--I think it might have been better to end like "Looking For Mr. Goodbar." I think this was a first novel, so I have to say, I couldn't have done it, but maybe streamline the story next time. I'm still "Waiting for Spring" No pun intended--well actually yes it was! "
