If You Had Just One Wish, What Would It Be?
A brilliant movie career, two adoring husbands--none of it is enough to erase the memory of Ariel Hart's one true love. Back when she was plain, shy Aggie Bixby, a dark-eyed young man named Felix touched her heart. . .then vanished from her life.
Now, she's about to do something shocking and outrageous--sell her house and leave Hollywood behind. Making her new home in the quiet town of Chula Vista, she meets Lex Sanders, a wealthy rancher and breeder of Arabian horses. Ariel see something familiar in his smoldering eyes--something that triggers long-buried memories of a love so pure and so perfect, it couldn't possibly last. . .
Or could it?
When Ariel Hart, a middle-aged movie star, suddenly realizes she won't be offered any more roles, she sets out on a series of zany maneuvers to begin a new career, finally buying a San Diego trucking company (``Able Body Trucking''). Between lessons in truck driving and martial arts, she searches for her lost love of 34 years before. In the meantime, Ariel also strikes up a romance with an avocado rancher with a past. When his enemies sabotage the trucking company, a host of Hollywood stars come to the rescue and long-lost lovers reunite to live happily ever after. A wild and crazy heroine and slapstick humor aren't what one expects from a Michaels (Dear Emily) novel, but they make for a memorable reading experience.

Good book. Glad to see older characters in a book. It shows love and sex are not out of reach for over 50'ers!
