The Older Man - Laurey Bright Was hoping for a 4 star book and parts of it were 4 star for me. But it just seemed soooo looong for a 252 page book. The book stretched over a two year period and there were quite a few lulls when it lost my interest only to pick up again in later chapters. This was the first book I have read by Daphne Clair writing as Laurey Bright.
