I absolutely loved young-adult author, Cecilia Galante’s first novel for adults, THE INVISIBLES (HarperCollins)! And to write I was excited when I heard she’d written another one for adults is at best, an understatement. I WAS THRILLED! Having read THE ODDS OF YOU AND ME (WilliamMorrow), it seems excitement was the appropriate reaction, because “between you and me,” THE ODDS OF YOU AND ME is fabulous, as well.

In THE ODDS OF YOU AND ME, Bernadette “Bird” Sincavage is faced with an impossible choice—one where she could possibly make the biggest mistake of her life.

Thirteen days. That’s all “Bird” has left to go until she’s finished with her probation for writing bad checks to the local supermarket and then, she’s free. She’s so excited to give her four-year old son, Angus, the normal life he deserves, she can almost taste it. Soon they’ll move out of her annoying mother’s house to new apartment in a new town and start a fresh, new life together. But trouble soon appears, in the form of a guy she used to work with. “Bird” is shocked to see James Rittenhouse being arrested on the evening news for assault in a bar.

“My mouth falls open, listening. Critical care unit? Severe head injuries? James?”

“Bird” is even more shocked while searching for her mother’s sweater up in the church choir loft, she finds James hiding – after escaping police custody, with a broken leg and he’s pointing a gun at her.

She doesn’t tell anyone she’s seen him, but if only she could put away that sad, terrified look in his eyes and the fact he’s hurt. And more importantly, if she could only forget how he helped her out years ago, and she owes him. Will “Bird” jeopardize her, and her son’s future for someone out of the past? Is she ready to face a bunch of secrets she’s put behind her, ones she’d rather forget? Or will she turn a blind eye and learn to live with the consequences?

It’s amazing how love can make us behave in ways we’d never dream possible.

  1. I learned to camp. I not only learned to live in a tent for a week, I learned to cook on an open fire, shower in a mass shower room with SPIDERS, and pay no attention to the noises in the night. Thank you for the chance on this book!

  2. I bought a gift card anonymously for one of my daughters friends. She is a single mom of twins. I sent it with a card and she posted in on facebook with the comment there are still nice people out there. It made me smile love giving love.

  3. I paid for a meal for an elderly couple that I did not know in a restaurant. They were stunned and I told them to just do something nice for someone else. Made me feel good!!

  4. I turned my life upside down. I dropped my job and old boyfriend and house and friends and moved to another state to be with an old crush. All for love! Happily married with 2 kids now!

  5. I left having my family local to me and a job in my career where I was completely happy to get married and I’ve never quite found that same groove in my “new” job (of almost 9 years now!). Miss my family, too!
