The Best of Times (eBook)


Everything can change in the blink of an eye. . .
On an ordinary London afternoon, a truck swerves across five lanes of traffic and creates a tangle of chaos and confusion. As loved ones wait to hear news and the hospital prepares to receive the injured, a dozen lives hang in the balance. A doctor is torn between helping the injured and hiding his young mistress; a bridegroom hopes to get to the church on time; a widow waiting to reunite with a lost love ponders whether she’ll ever see him again; and the mysterious hitchhiker, the only person who knows what really happened, is nowhere to be found.
Filled with suspense, romance, and more twists than a country highway, The Best of Times proves once again why Penny Vincenzi is the queen of happy endings.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

Praise for The Best of Times…

The Raves Are in for Penny Vincenzi:

“Penny Vincenzi is poised to fill the gap in the American realm of Cinderella fiction. With so few current writers able to summon the quaint allure of such women’s fiction without stooping to sensationalism, Ms. Vincenzi really is an anomaly.”
—Janet Maslin, New York Times

“Nobody writes smart, page-turning commercial women’s fiction like Vincenzi.”
USA Today

“Penny is the doyenne of the modern blockbuster.”

“She’s the plot-twist queen.”
—Adriana Trigiani, author of the Big Stone Gap trilogy and The Queen of the Big Time

“Soap opera? You bet—but with her well-drawn characters and engaging style, Vincenzi keeps things humming.”
—Joanne Kaufman, People
