Another book from me to you! The plot is another romantic one, but explores love in a much more philosophical manner. Fay McLeod and Tom Avery are "nice people": kind to their parents, groups of close friends, well-built secondary characters of the novel; dedicated to their professions (she's a folklorist, he's a graveyard shift radio talk show host). Like me (another nice person, I hope) they're both unlucky in love. Fay is the quintessential serial monogamist; Tom has been married and divorced three times. They're sick of being third wheels in a world full of perfectly matched bicycles. They finally meet, and it is love at first sight for both, but Fay is leaving immediately for a month of mermaid research in Europe. On her return, we find the path of true love never did run smooth. Is there a happily ever after? You'll have to enter the competition to win the book :)
