    A short and snappy little romance from the late 80’s. Harmless beach holiday reading.

    Cyn McCall feels like she needs a change, her life has become too monotonous. "I want something to happen. Something that will shake things up, turn my life around." Cyn's husband Tim died two years ago. She has a four-year-old son, Brandon. And she's being hit on by an ob/gyn doctor who works at the same clinic that she does who thinks Cyn's uptight about sex.

"I want something to happen. Something that will shake things up, turn my life around." Cyn's husband Tim died two years ago. She has a four-year-old son, Brandon. And she's being hit on by an ob/gyn doctor who works at the same clinic that she does who thinks Cyn's uptight about sex. After visiting a good friend, Worth Lansing, he persuades her to go away with him for the weekend (just as friends) to Acapulco, to take a break and get away from it all. After thinking about it Cyn impulsively agrees. Worth has been friends with Cyn for years. He was her husband Tim's best friend and they got to know each other well over the years. They had their happy times, and their sad times (like when Tim died in an auto accident.) And they were only just friends. Worth got his tickets to Acapulco from a girlfriend who couldn't make it. So when he and Cyn arrive at their hotel in Acapulco they find they have a room with only one bed. But, since they are friends, they think they can deal with sleeping together. As they spend time together they start noticing things about each other, and start becoming attracted to each other. One day they eventually make love. But afterwards, Cyn is confused. She feels insecure, she thinks she can't compare to Worth's other lovers, she wonders if this ruined their friendship, etc....and she decides it's time to go home. This was a sweet friends to lovers romance. I really liked Worth. He felt very guilty for wanting his best friend's wife, but he found himself genuinely caring for her. There were times when I was disappointed with Cyn though, and I didn't like how she treated Worth and jumped to conclusions. But eventually she noticed her mistakes. I thought Cyn and Worth were perfect for each other since they went through so much together and knew each other so well. Another enjoyable read by Sandra Brown. Previously released as a Loveswept romance from 1989.

    DNF at Chapter 3. Despite a bajillion cranky retirees living in Northern Arizona, there are few traditional hard rock radio stations or old time Fill Me Up, Buttercup R&B, and too many stations in general that have static due to the mountains. Only so many times you can listen to Best of Queen, the Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack or Harry Potter so I rely on books on CD. Actually no limit to Harry!

    When I first read the summary of the book I was intrigued. I love friends-to-lovers story, and I usually like Ms. Brown's stories so I figured I would like this one as well.

Cyn's life hasn't turned out the way she dreamed. Her husband died two years ago, and now she lives with her widowed mother and her son. Nothing interesting happens to her. The only bright thing in her life (besides her son) is her best friend Wroth (who happened to be her husband's best friend as well). So when he suggests a weekend getaway to the tropics she lets herself be convinced to go. Wroth is mostly happy with his life. True, his romantic relationships have gotten a bit, well boring, lately. So when his girlfriends stands him up, he decides to invite his pal Cyn. Neither of them expected anything romantic to happen. As I said, a great premise, but I simply couldn't like it, mainly because Cyn is an idiot. She is whiny and selfish and immature. I couldn't stand her. I was tempted to simply DNF the book, but I decided to endure and finish it, and even then I skimmed the second half. Wroth is OK, but not good enough to make me ignore Cyn's gigantic flaws.

Now she is restless and her mother keeps telling her it is time to get on with her life. When she talks to Worth about it, he invites Cyn on a weekend trip to Acapulco. But the trip turns into more than either of them counted on when they see each other in a whole new light. Is it the exotic locale or is it time to move on from the past? This is one of Sandra Brown's older category romances. I usually stay away from these because of Brown's overly dramatic dialogue. This one was very enjoyable and didn't have the over the top dialogue that I see in her older books. I'm guessing this was a later book where she was transitioning into the writer she is today. My rating: 4 Stars.

    Originally published in 1989 under the 'Loveswept' label, A WHOLE NEW LIGHT takes the formulaic theme of a young widow getting involved with her deceased husband's best friend. Because there is some outdated material, my guess is those 35 years old and up would enjoy this romance the most. Or if you are a young 'old soul'. Cynthia 'Cyn' McCall was contentedly married to Tim when her husband was tragically killed in an accident. Fast forward two years later and she is stuck in a rut. H Originally published in 1989 under the 'Loveswept' label, A WHOLE NEW LIGHT takes the formulaic theme of a young widow getting involved with her deceased husband's best friend. Because there is some outdated material, my guess is those 35 years old and up would enjoy this romance the most. Or if you are a young 'old soul'. Cynthia 'Cyn' McCall was contentedly married to Tim when her husband was tragically killed in an accident. Fast forward two years later and she is stuck in a rut. Her widowed mother lives with her, she has a job working with young pregnant girls that wipes her out sometimes, mothering her little boy has her anxious at moments and she is attempting to have a social life. And along comes Dr. Josh, with an ego as big as a mountain, who accuses her of having an issue with sex. Because she wants to take things slow. Once Tim's best friend and a happy third wheel, bachelor and womanizer-extraordinaire Worth Lansing has been Cyn's closest friend for quite awhile. Before, during and after, Cyn cannot remember a time when he hasn't been there. Able to joke and share things, he has two free plane and hotel reservations for a getaway weekend in Acapulco, Mexico. After seeing how Cyn is behaving, he convinces her to go with him. As friends, of course. Needless-to-say, they have loads of fun but before their stay is over the relationship changes from friends to lovers. It is nothing either one expected to happen. Cyn chooses to not address the issue while Worth does his best and pursues her. Worth makes the story worth reading. No pun intended. Honestly, if this was a longer I would have probably rated it lower. Cyn's self-esteem and problems with dwelling on the past make her have some unlikable moments. But because it is only 212 pages and covers a period of a few weeks, time flew by. Ms. Brown's strength is making all her characters believable. There is a nice secondary story with Cyn's mother and an older neighbor. And, of course, Worth is a sweetheart when Cyn gives him a chance. If you enjoy the writing style of Brenda Novak, Marilyn Pappano, or Nora Robert's older contemporary romances, you should like this story.

The fact I appreciated the most was these two were truly best friends, joking about the hero's success with women, he being there for her when her husband and his best friend died and the best part was that both of them had never harboured feelings of more than friendship before they both take a trip out of town & are thrown in close proximity.

This change of environment makes them see each other in a new light with both thinking it's one-sided when it all ends in a passionate encounter. Afterwards of course things are awkward since both of them need time to process and it was funny seeing the heroine attaching nefarious purposes to the hero's intentions and later on when the heroine's mother got married both of them got dates and were jealous as hell. I liked it when they finally got it all out and realized they had moved past friendship, the hero came to this realization faster. A short book.

    My only problem with this funny, sexy book is that Cyn's husband had to die for these two to come together. I laughed. I teared up a little. I marvelled at how absolutely BLIND Worth had been for YEARS! This is a great read that is quick, a little predictable, but LOADS of fun!!

He had been dead for two years. They had a son together - Brandon. Cyn had been in an icky mood and her mother told her the she needed to move on with her life. She had a bad day at work and needed to talk to someone that would understand her and that person was Worth. She tells him about her day and what her mother said and he agreed. He had a date with a woman name Greta, but she cancelled it and left him tickets to go to Acapulco, Mexico. He gets the ticket and decides he wanted to go and he wanted Cyn to go with him. On the trip, they were walking in friendship shoes, but not for long. They sleeps together, but the next morning Cyn regretted what they have done and she wanted to go home. So, they both leave. Her problem was that she didn't believe that she could touch the women that Worth was use to being with. They have tension between them. Their tension may seem childish to some people, but I would think that's how best friends who cross that line would act towards one another. They wanted to be friends and not go there again, but at the same time, they were fighting their feelings for one another. They were trying to push each other away, at the same time, wanting the other close. I honestly believe that best friend turn lovers would be harder to do, then two strangers hooking up. This is a person, you have seen as your best friend all these years. Someone you didn't see as girlfriend or boyfriend material, until something change. One part that had me laughing so hard and laughing for a while, is when Worth and Cyn was in his bedroom and he asked her to touch him in a certain spot. He yelled and poor Cyn thought that she was hurting him. Come to find out, he was having a charley horse. LOL, poor worth. That's a bad time for a charley horse to appear. I know about Charley Horses and they are painful. Cynthia and Worth gets married. Her son Brandon calls him father, which was touching to him. Brandon may have only been four years old, but he knew that Tim was his real father, but to him, Tim was his father, when he was a baby and now Worth is his father for the rest of his life. This book is a very quick read and strictly romance. Oh, and funny, well at least to me it was.

They so don't belong lovers and after the total mistake, they shouldn't be friends anymore either. They are both idiots, and mean spirited. So the very beginning of the book was looking up but her reaction started the ruin, his reaction to her reaction just cemented it. When they finally get together again, oh god it is a disaster. The author writes it that way... really. So it was just not particular good or OK when they finally work out their stupidities. So to add to the poor relationship that starts with chemistry and ends on a flop, I felt a little preached to the whole book. She is a pregnancy counselor, but it seems a bit one sided on the "how do we keep this" side. When I hear about her counseling 16 and 17 year olds, I'm just horrified. Yes, she doesn't actually come out and say, keep you baby, but it sure seems like that is her thoughts. The first was a teen that had 3 abortions and then decides to keep the 4th at 17 years old. She thought this was a good thing and she deserved the "best" doctor, for free. Hmm... sounds like supporting the right decision to me, not. I know people in my family that had babies and gave them up for adoption, also friends that had abortion and teen pregnancies, that kept the baby. None of it is easy but I can tell you the easiest. The best thing is to not get pregnant in the first place, but it should not be glorified. So this seemed like it was a glory to babies book and a bit religious until the end when the guy picks up the "bible" in the waiting room and starts reading the story of Jonah to the little boy. Then I knew I had been correct about the subtle pushes in the religious direction throughout the book. The slight anti-abortion feel, the sex is only for marriage vibe, the prayer. I had felt preached to during the book slightly and at the end I felt sucker punch as it was no longer subtle. (view spoiler)[ The pregnancy with triplets (hide spoiler)] ending only added to this vibe. The positive -It was short. But it certainly wasn't very sweet. I had this author on my shelf but will not be reading more.

    An easy, good romance story with almost predictable ending. Not her best, but still one of my personal favorite. As this book was first published in early 90s, the characterization (not to mention the fashion, haha) is different than most contemporary romance written today. But don't let that deter you from giving this book a try. A good book is a good book regardless when it was first released :)

    3.5 stars Nice, short and satisfying read. This is a story of two best friends (widow and confirmed bachelor) who came to see each other in a different light during their unplanned trip to Acapulco. The mixed emotions, reluctance and even guilt that they experienced when their feelings changed for each other were well portrayed. It was also interesting and kind of sad for me to revisit before 9/11 commercial flight experience.

    Sadly shallow. Repetitious regrets. Predictably predictable. I love Chick Lit but I resent authors who think women are feather-brained. This was not typical Sandra Brown quality in terms of plot and/or character development. (I mean, seriously, who would pay the money for a plane ticket change to leave Acapulco on an earlier flight for the SAME day she had planned on leaving just to get away from a guy?)

    I was given this book from a friend downsizing her library and being a long time fan of Ms Brown drew me to read this. Yep, it is a love story that is truly believable. When Cyn's husband died his best friend was there to comfort her as a friend. They knew each other as friends all along but the circumstances have changes, and oh for the better.

She missed him so much, but wanted to have someone in her life again. She struggled with that and that was understandable. The only things that I didn't like about the book was that the story was a bit predictable and it seemed a bit unusual that neither Cyn or Worth had developed any feelings beyond friendship before their trip. I really enjoyed the author's style of writing and the characters that she created. I have picked up a couple more of her books already and think they will be just as fun to read as this book. I received this book for free through Goodreads First Reads. Thank you!

I liked the story concept, though, and the writing was pretty good. I haven't read any others by Sandra Brown, but this was available to me on audio book and so I listened to it. Enjoyable, but nothing truly special.... and a tad annoying in parts.

They eventually get together after lots of miscommunications and then everyone tells them that they should have gotten together a long time ago and that Dead Husband would be so happy to see them both happy… or something like that.

    My GOD this book was obnoxious...I am usually an easy to please reader, but some of the comments made by the "hero" of this book made me want to slap him, he was crass and rude... I could not wait to finish it.

    While I am a fan of Sandra Brown, romance is not the style of Sandra Brown book that I like. This read more like a Harlequin romance and is not anywhere close to the caliber of books she has written and I have enjoyed in the past (Mean Streak being one of my favorites). Pass this one up.

    I randomly, quickly selected this one after Tara showed me how to download from my phone when I didn't have one checked out from the library. Found this one simple and poorly written. Ironically about a young widow. Wouldn't recommend.
