Considering she's just driven her car into the front window of Davey's Café, they might be on to something. All Diana wants is to be normal—but life for this thirty-two-year-old waitress is anything but. Since the death of her father two decades before, Diana has looked for consolation in doughnuts, strawberry shortcake and cheese curls—anything to avoid looking into her past. With fifty pounds to lose, she knows she's become a huge disappointment to her mother, and herself.
An unlikely friendship with her ninety-three-year-old neighbor gives Diana the courage to shed the bulky barrier she has put between herself and the world, and soon, she's getting attention from a certain pool-playing god at a local singles bar. But after the unspeakable happens, Diana begins to examine her past and finds that losing it is the only way she can truly be free.
In this debut novel, Lindsay Faith Rech weaves subtle beauty and wit with honesty and hope, as Diana breaks through the burdens of the past and becomes the sexy siren she was born to be.
