As a forensic anthropologist, Dr. Kate Riley spends her time dealing with the dead. A career that is more gruesome and intense than most people can handle, it has been her driving passion ever since her partner disappeared in college years ago. Nothing is more important to her than her job. Nothing, that is, until she meets ex-college basketball star and passionate kindergarten teacher, Lisa Sorenson.

Lisa Sorenson adores her students’ relentless enthusiasm. Light-hearted and intent on celebrating life, she’s intrigued by Riley’s cerebral aloofness. Drawn to each other, an unlikely romance blossoms and begins to thrive.

But when their professional worlds begin to collide in a most unlikely manner, a wedge is driven between them and threatens to push them apart. Can the love they feel for each other overcome such a gulf and can they find their joie de vivre—their zest of life—together before it’s too late?

We are pleased to welcome Micheala Lynn, the author of Jagged Little Scar, back to the store for the release of her sophomore novel Joie de Vivre. Micheala is an accomplished author and musician with a Masters in Creative Writing from Central Michigan University. We’ll have refreshments on hand, and of course the author, who will talk about her work!
