" Cook's characters always leap off the page and into your heart, and this one is not different. " --Jackie


Years ago, Melanie followed her husband, Kurt, from the New England beach town where their two young sons were thriving to the suburbs of Atlanta. She’s carved out a life as a successful metal sculptor, but when Kurt leaves her for another woman, having the tools to cut up their marriage bed is small consolation. She’s old enough to know that high school reunions are often a big disappointment, but when her best friend makes her buy a ticket and an old flame gets in touch to see if she’ll be going, she fantasizes that returning to her past might help her find her future . . . until her highway driving phobia resurfaces and threatens to hold her back from the adventure of a lifetime.

Time Flies is an epic trip filled with fun, heartbreak, and friendship that explores what it takes to conquer your worst fears . . . so you can start living your future.

Read a summery interview with the author HERE.

Jackie says:
"Yes, it's officially summer now because there is a new book by Claire Cook on our shelves.  Time Flies is a good one (but aren't they all?).  This time it deals with a divorced woman and single mother trying to make her way in the world with her metal sculptures.  She has two looming problems--her fear of driving on highways, and her high school reunion.  This is a wonderful book about becoming yourself again, celebrating it, and flaunting it when you can.  I really identified with Melanie, and ended up doing no small amount of cheering for her, mentally and occasionally physically.  Cook's characters always leap off the page and into your heart, and these are no different.  Trust me, you want to hang out with Melanie this summer, so read this book!"
