Featured: The Present by Cindy Davis Purchase:

Every day is something for which to be grateful and to look for inspiration. You don’t have to live life on a treadmill.

Many people in my over-55 community are, to quote one of my neighbors, “Waiting to go.” Actually, they called Florida “God’s waiting room.”


Is that what really happens?

I asked around and found out it was.

After some thought, I realized I had been too.

This book is about how my life changed when I learned to “live life consciously.”

Because, at the age of sixty-two, I learned I didn’t need to lie down and wait for the end to come. It was my choice to go forward…or not.

So, I went forward…and joined a dating site and met someone who changed everything. Realize please, this isn’t a dating book.

It’s how, through interactions with Rick, spiritual books, and journeys to places like Cassadaga, Florida, I learned about self-healing, and that I could literally change my thoughts, to be a more positive and empowering person.

That with those changes, life took an entirely new path. How easily things come to you when you learn to let go.

On our honeymoon, we visited Mexico’s Yucatan villages and learned that in another life, I just might have been a Mayan.

Meet Cindy Davis:

Cindy Davis is the author of 22 mysteries and romantic suspense novels and several non-fiction books.

She’s a 20-year veteran freelance editor and a recent transplant to the land of sunshine where she can be outdoors twelve months of the year rather than the four or five in New England.

Cindy and her new husband Rick do a lot of hiking and swimming. They like to travel—next on the bucket list is Italy.

The last trip to Rome produced a novel Lethal Dose of Revenge (being marketed now) which made it TAX-DEDUCTIBLE!

Personally, she’s addicted to coffee—particularly chocolate raspberry flavor.

And don’t anyone dare get between her and her life-loves: Ben & Jerry. Other than that, she’s pretty laid back.

Review by Amazon Reviewer:

love memoirs. They take you to places that fiction does not. This particular memoir starts in New Hampshire after the author loses the love of her life and moves to Florida to start a new chapter.

Like most folks who lose a husband or wife, the grief turns your world completely upside down, but you can only wade so long in the mire before it tries to pull you under. Cindy Davis pulled herself out of the muck and tried to make the best of this new challenge.

She took a chance and ventured online to possibly meet a companion.

After a few trials and errors, she found Rick. This story is hers, but also theirs. I immersed myself in all the great things that happened for her and for them; everything from newfound love to exceptional vitality to tapping into the spiritual side of things.

She grew comfortable in Florida and followed her heart. I think the happiness she found was totally unexpected.

Review by Amazon Reviewer:

This book is a story about a woman who is suddenly widowed and left struggling with what to do next. But it’s not a depressing book – on the contrary it is uplifting and positive. Her life changed abruptly and she’s not sure how to make it all work.

Reading her decisions, and the new experiences she brought to life in the pages gave me things to think about in my own life. I think anyone who is at a place where they know they have to make changes but not sure what to do would benefit from reading this book.

It makes you believe that you can make changes to benefit yourself no matter how hard they seem. An easy read and one that will keep you invested to the end.

All in all a good read.
