Before Ever After Before Ever After
Before Ever After:  “A smartly written romance, mystery and historical adventure all wrapped up in a
page-turner that will have you guessing until the very end.” –  Adena Halpern, author of  The Ten Best Days
of My Life.
Three years after her husband Max’s death,  Shelley feels no more adjusted to being a widow than she did
that first terrible day.  That is, until the doorbell rings.  Standing on her front step is a young man who looks
so much like Max.  Same smile, same eyes, same age, same adorable bump in his nose.

He could be Max’s long-lost relation.  He introduces himself as Paolo, an Italian editor of American coffee table books.  He shows Shelley some childhood photos.

Paolo tells her that the man in the photos, the bearded man who Paolo says is his grandfather,  though he never seems to age, is Max.  Her Max. And he is alive and well.

As outrageous as Paolo’s claims seem.  How could her husband be alive?
And if he is, why has he not he looked her up?

Shelley desperately wants to know the truth. She and Paolo jet across the globe to track Max down.
If it is really Max.  Along the way, Shelley recounts the European package tour where they had met.

She relives Max’s stories of bloody Parisian barricades, medieval Austrian kitchens, and buried Roman boathouses. Shelley then begins to piece together the story of who her husband was,  and what these new revelations mean for her “happily ever after.”

And as she and Paolo get closer to the truth, Shelley discovers that not all stories end where they are supposed to.
