Time Flies by Claire Cook

Melanie's husband Kurt has left her to move in with another woman. She feels like she has lost herself somewhere. Her best friend, BJ, wants her to come home to Massachusetts for their high school reunion.  Melanie sells one of her metal water sculptures to Ted Brody.  It springs a leak and she fixes it.  There is a bit of a spark there. At the same time, she is emailing Finn, a boy Melanie liked in high school. He wants her to come to the reunion.  BJ keeps calling her about coming.  Finally, Melanie gives in and flies from Atlanta to Boston.  The ladies go on a road trip and meet with some of their old schoolmates before going to the reunion.  Does Melanie come to terms with her new life?

From the author:
Years ago, Melanie followed her husband, Kurt, from the New England beach town where their two young sons were thrivingto the suburbs of Atlanta. She’s carved out a life as a successful metal sculptor, but when Kurt leaves her for another woman having the tools to cut up their marriage bed is small consolation. She’s old enough to know that high school reunions are often a big disappointment, but when her best friend makes her buy a ticket and an old flame gets in touch to see whether she’ll be going, she fantasizes that returning to her past might help her find her future…until her driving phobia resurfaces and threatens to hold her back from the adventure of a lifetime.
Time Flies is an epic road trip filled with fun, heartbreak, and friendship, and explores what it takes to conquer your worst fears…so you can start living your future.
