Join author Robin Finn as she reads from RESTLESS IN L.A. at PAGES bookstore in Manhattan Beach on Thurs, March 16th at 7pm. It was an innocent online flirtation. Until it wasn’t. Alexandra Hoffman lives with her work-obsessed husband & three challenging children in upscale L.A. She never meant to “friend” her old boyfriend on Facebook. But as her 40th birthday approaches, she finds them re-connecting online–and in person. As Alex’s life unravels, she must confront her past and find the courage to face her future, even if it means risking everything. “Emotional, raw, and totally addictive.”
