Maybe Forever: Maybe...Book Three is a contemporary women’s fiction novel written by Kim Golden. Laney is still madly in love with Mads, even though they are married and, with two young kids, finding any pretense at intimacy an impossibility. When they first met, they experienced a magical connection that just dissolved the rest of the world and left only the two of them. Lately, however, Laney is feeling neglected, and she is tired of being the main caretaker of their infant and four-year-old daughter. There have been just too many afternoons when Mads would call and say he’d have to work late again. While she was thrilled that the furniture collective he was a major part of was making a name for itself, she had put her own successful career on hold for the children, and expected that he would at least be there in the evenings for them. Things came to a head when he mentioned an important forum in Milan that would be happening on the weekend they had plans to be away, the weekend of their anniversary. After they made up and decided to celebrate their anniversary a week early at a restaurant and later stay at a hotel, Laney sat alone in the restaurant for hours waiting for Mads, who never showed up.
Kim Golden’s contemporary romance, Maybe Forever: Maybe...Book Three is a well-written and entertaining novel set in Denmark and Florida. Golden’s characters struggle to face the challenges of work and family after Mads’ failure to do so almost destroys their marriage. I especially enjoyed the settings of this story and loved following the family as they explored the beaches in Juno Beach, Florida. While this is the third book in Golden’s Maybe… series, I found it to be an enjoyable stand-alone read with just enough background to allow me to appreciate the history of the characters and the background to the story. The author’s characters are authentic and thoughtful adults, and the device of alternating the husband and wife’s stories in each chapter works marvelously. Maybe Forever is highly recommended.
