Dating for Decades by Tracy Krimmer

IT guru Cassie Noble can depend on networks and servers. It's the people in her life that always let her down. With her fortieth birthday looming, she'd love to find a way to trust and commit to someone.

Eager to work out her problems methodically, Cassie reaches out to her support group. Electrician Keith manages to infiltrate their all-female ranks, infuriating her with his flippant jokes and his all-too laid back attitude. The other women all find him hilarious and she can’t see why. She takes this seriously and he’s doing anything but.

When Cassie needs Keith's help on a project at her day job, she's dreading having to work closely with him, however much his hazel eyes make her stop dead in her tracks. As days turn to weeks, he starts to break down her hard exterior. She’s seeing new possibilities. She’s seeing the future…a life that is joyful and bright. A life that includes Keith.

But when a letter from her mother drags her back to the world where Cassie has no control, she shuts down. Can her support group yank her back from that place where hope is lost? And can the man who once drove her crazy be the one who finally doesn’t let her down?

Hey! Here's my review.

Dating for Decades is all about relationships - friendships, romance and family connections. I've been eagerly awaiting the release of this book and managed to get my hands on a copy before it was published. I love Tracy Krimmer's writing style and although this novel has a more serious women's fiction style than her fun chick lit series, Tracy's voice still shines through. 

In the lead up to my own 40th birthday, I could relate to Cassie finding grey hairs, though thank god the chin hairs haven't started yet *looks very closely in the mirror from six angles just to check* Cassie was authentic; an imperfect stubborn character who won my heart. 

There are some great quotes in this book and I found myself live tweeting them as I read. I also added them to Goodreads quotes - have a look and let me know which one is your favourite. I love the one with the bouquet of fingers ...
