Waiting by Q. Kelly

I just finished re-reading Waiting by Q. Kelly.  This is an interesting book about the twists and turns of the lives of three women brought together by the bonds of love and family.  I read this earlier and I'm sure I've blogged about it then.  I came across it again this weekend while browsing through my Kindle and something clicked in my head and I called it up and began to scan the first few pages.  The characters immediately came back to me and I knew I had to read their story again.  This story has all the right elements.  Strong characters, heart break, laughter, love and desire and the driving need never to give up. 

I love books like this.  I love strong characters and great stories and I especially love those books that keep calling you back to them because there's just something there that makes the characters come alive and makes you want to walk the paths of their story over again.  I keep adding to my list of books like this.  It's what really makes reading so much fun for me. 



Caris Ismay, 30, is falling in love with a woman she dares not pursue, and at exactly the wrong time. Caris knew that life after having her baby would be different, especially since her wife did not love her anymore. But Caris never expected post-baby life to be this difficult. Dale, her wife of three years, is in a coma that turns into a vegetative state. Lena, Dale's 29-year-old daughter, is put in the awkward position of revealing Dale's secrets to Caris. Caris and Lena share a perfect, passionate kiss that they cannot stop thinking about. Plus, they can help each other in ways no one else can. They try to build a friendship, but their growing attraction gets in the way. Can Caris and Lena move past the taboo of their attraction and find their path together?
