Book Blitz & Review - Wait for the Rain by Maria Murnane

Wait for the Rain 
by Maria Murnane

Daphne White is staring down the barrel of forty—and is distraught at what she sees. Her ex-husband is getting remarried, her teenage daughter hardly needs her anymore, and the career she once dreamed about has somehow slipped from her grasp. She’s almost lost sight of the spirited and optimistic young woman she used to be.

As she heads off to a Caribbean island to mark the new decade with her best friends from college, Daphne’s in anything but the mood to celebrate. But when she meets Clay Hanson, a much younger man, she ignores her inner voice warning her that she’s too old for a fling. In fact, this tropical getaway might be the perfect opportunity to picture her future in a new sun-drenched light.

With the help of her friends, Daphne rediscovers her enthusiasm for life, as well as her love for herself—and realizes that her best years are still ahead.

Maria Murnane is a new to me author, i was drawn to the beautiful eye catching cover and was looking forward to delving into Daphne's life. Wait for the Rain was a feel good fun, light read. Perfect getaway summer read about the lives and loves of three fabulous friends.

Daphne is turning forty, her Ex is moving on with his life getting remarried. Her teenage daughter is making her feel that she not needed as much. She's some what lost and at a point in her life that she needs to make changes. To celebrate turning forty Daphne and her two best friends from college decided there long over due a catch up and arrange a  holiday together.

Spending time just her and her girlfriends is just what Daphne needs. Things are a little strained at first between Daphne and her  friends. But when she start's to open up the easiness slips back in giving us some fun loving banter between them. 

There is some romance but for me that part is secondary to the main story of finding yourself again. Thats what I loved the most it was the journey that Daphne was on trying to find herself and renewing her friendships with her life long friends. She finds out that she’s finally ready to move on and allow herself some fun and romance and also that it's time to follow her dreams that she has put on the shelf all this time.

Wait for the Rain is a wonderful read of friendships and finding who you are and allowing yourself some joy in life. Life will always carry on and it is what you make of it.

The way Maria became an author is a little crazy. She used to work in high-tech PR but hated it, so one day she quit and ended up playing semi-pro soccer in Argentina for a year. While she was down there she decided to write a novel, which was something she'd always dreamed of doing. Fast forward a few years and she's now the best-selling author of Perfect on Paper, It's a Waverly Life, Honey on Your Mind, Chocolate for Two, Cassidy Lane, Katwalk, Wait for the Rain, and Bridges. And yes, she still plays a lot of soccer!
