About the Author

Martha Moody is the author of the national bestseller Best Friends and the novel The Office of Desire. A practicing physician, she lives in Ohio with her family.


Outwardly confident and witty, divorced cardiologist Genie Toledo has come to a midlife crossroads. A determined workaholic, she leads a life driven by the needs of her patients first, then the needs of her family and friends. Genie's longtime affair with married college basketball coach Mick Crabbe is her only complete escape. Her vacillating emotional needs and well-hidden insecurities ruling her interactions come to a fore when Mick's daughter needs medical help and Genie meets his wife and children. Then Mick reveals his own fatal illness, and she begins to see new aspects of her bond with Mick. She also starts evaluating her role in other relationships, especially in a particularly strained one with her own grown daughter, Claudia. VERDICT Moody (Best Friends; The Office of Desire) captures the desperate feelings of a mistress caught between her love and her sensibilities. Unfortunately, the plot is occasionally disjointed and the ending is predictably trite. A disappointment after her acclaimed previous novels.

Doctor-novelist Moody (Best Friends) again zooms in to examine the many facets, features and fissures of a relationship, this time in the story of Genie Toledo, an Ohio cardiologist who has a 12-year-long affair with a married college basketball coach. From medical technology to billing bureaucracy, saving lives to losing patients, Moody shows the demands of medical practice and then treats readers to an almost equal display of insight into the world of college basketball as Genie's lover, Mick Crabbe, prods and nurtures his team to national prominence. Their time together expands from a weekly two-hour tryst after Mick's daughter becomes Genie's patient. Mick's wife further complicates matters when she begins confiding in Genie. And when Mick is diagnosed with cancer, Genie becomes further enmeshed with his family. Moody probes new layers of emotion and personal connection as Genie the heart doctor comes to understand the intangible aspects of the human heart. Instead of applying the cliches of traditional romance to a midlife heroine, Moody introduces readers to a woman who never stops learning about work, family, people and possibilities. (Aug.)
