Another winner from ADR! This novella is the sequel to Midnight In Orlando, and picks up with Nic and Susan’s story four months after they met in Orlando.
Nic is still slightly neurotic and Susan is still mostly level-headed, but they each seem to be rubbing off on the other just a little bit. When this book begins, they haven’t seen each other since the conference in Orlando, but have kept in touch daily through the wonders of modern technology. They have both decided that they’re ready to take another step in their relationship by seeing each other again in the form of a vacation together, and maybe more – if they can just muster the courage to actually do it.
The delightful Jeanne, who was the first person to befriend Susan in Orlando, has also kept in touch with her new friend and soon makes her an offer she can’t refuse. Jeanne and her partner Jo own two neighboring cabins in West Virginia. Jeanne offers the second one to Susan and Nic to join them for a weekend getaway. As you can imagine, hilarity ensues.
I didn’t find this book to be as laugh-out-loud funny as the first one, but the characters are still lovably quirky, and there’s an underlying sweetness to their relationship that they didn’t have yet in the first book. However, we are talking about Nic and Susan here, so nothing about their weekend happens easily. It seems like anything that could go wrong, does, but without giving away too much, I think it’s safe to say all is well in the end.
Jeanne and Jo are great secondary characters, but we get to meet newcomers Harry and Cassandra who all but steal the show. So, pick up this book, make sure you have bail money, put on your Thundershirt, strap on your snowshoes, and expect the unexpected when it’s midnight on the mountaintop.
