A Novella by Lina Rehal
"Love is hopeful. It welcomes promises.
Like the changing seasons, it adapts."
October In New York is about chance meetings and the unconventional love affair of two people destined to be together.
Gwendolyn North and Thomas Winslow meet late on night inNew York City when they get stuck in an elevator at their hotel. After an hour alone with her, trapped between floors, the handsome, reserved businessman from Chicago is intrigued by the lovely, free-spirited artist from Massachusetts and invites her to have a drink with him in the lounge. The attraction betwee them grows stronger over the next six days, until a lie threatens to destroy any chance of a relationship.
Both have been disappointed with love in the past. Unable to deny their feelings, they follow their hearts and face the obstacles of a seemingly futile romance.
5-Star Testimonials for October In New York
PW – A Sweet, unconventional love story.
An excellent, quick read! The plot switches through different times and locations in the relationship between the two main characters, yet has a steady flow and is easy to follow. The characters were likable and believable, and the dialogue did a great job of moving the story along, and showing the feelings of Gwen & Thomas. Can’t wait for the next work by this writer!
Nokia 6250 – October In New York Review
Lina Rehal has written about an interesting love triangle and the complications distance adds. The plot, characters, and settings draw you in to the end. It is not a typical love story.
