Gray Hair Don’t Care

Karen Booth. Feb. 2021. 278p. ISBN 9781393079620. pap. $4.99. CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE
Booth tells the story of 47-year-old Lela Bennett, whose divorce and subsequent one-night stand with her former college best friend inspire her to start fresh with a new business and—wait for it—newly gray hair. In three short years, Lela manages to turn her life around with a new cosmetics company and a stunning new look. An upcoming deal with a lifestyle brand sounds almost too good to be true, until Lela finds out that the brand is owned by the daughter of Donovan James—the same man who loved her and left her three years earlier—and she’ll be working closely with him, since he is in charge of brand marketing. As Lela and Donovan spend more time together, their individual vows to stay out of romantic entanglements become harder to keep. Could it be that the time is finally right for both their romance and Lela’s business? 
VERDICT Readers looking for older romance heroes and heroines won’t want to miss Booth’s (“Forever” series) latest stand-alone. Themes of starting over, embracing your true self, confronting ageism, and family forgiveness make this a romance to remember.
