The Difference a Day Made

Posted:  Jan. 6, 2014

The Difference a Day Made by Margaret Desmond  When Lucy is called in at the last minute to act as a temporary executive assistant to the handsome, mysterious CEO of the company she has only been with for a month, the first person she wants to share the news with is her best friend, Stella. But Stella is unreachable, on her way home from a business convention and a humiliating hookup.

On one eventful day, Lucy finds herself flying in a private jet to the east coast, struggling to conceal her helpless attraction to her boss, while Stella, on a commercial airliner heading west, is seated next to an annoyingly attractive stranger who may not be a stranger after all. Neither friend is yet aware that each has embarked on a journey of personal discovery and love that will change both of their lives forever


    This story was two stories in one but the main one was for Lucy Dillane and Shane Walsh.  The Second was Stella O’Rourke and Michael Gannon.  The story starts out with the two main characters and best friends Lucy and Stella who were friends since grade school.

     Lucy’s family had a beach home that they would spend two weeks at during the summer Stella would get to go with them and the girls loved every moment of it.  The best part is in the sleepy town there were not that many kids in the ocean resort but the lady next door had two grand-sons that came every summer to stay with her.  Michael was several years older than the girls but Tyler was about their age and they all got along great and they were always stuck like glue to each other the whole two weeks.

     As the girls grew into their own Lucy a refined classic beauty and Stella a wild carefree redheaded beauty each saw and were seen differently.  Michael being the oldest and the born leader of the four of them had an ability of being able to handle Stella’s wild side.  As time moved on Stella came to be in love with Michael and enjoyed the talks and attention he gave her during the two weeks.  Until the summer of the girl’s senior year

     Present dayStella owns the novelty store at the beach her mom opened when Stella went off to college to have something to do.  Stella does very well there and was able to buy it out right after college.  Lucy married her college sweetheart and was starting a family when things went south with being able to have children and her husband passed away.  Now she is working for Walsh Enterprises as a secretary.  Owned by a young CEO Shane Walsh a self-made man, a billionaire in fact. 

     She has been working there for a month when she is called in the middle of the night by an employee of the firm instructing her that she is being asked the go with Mr. Walsh to NYC to be his private secretary since his personal secretary has had a death in the family.  Being dazed that one it is the middle of the night but two she is questioning why her.  When she is told either she works there or not.  So, at about 4 a.m. she is being picked up by a private car and taken to meet a plane but not any plane his private plane.

All this from just a chance eye to eye meeting in the lobby of the building she works at (no words spoken.)  This begins the story of Lucy and Shane.

     Michael left the beach house early to go off to school early that summer that is forever etched in Stella’s mind.  This would have been his last year of college then on to Boston for a job, marries and divorces and moves back to California.  On the way back from a business trip, a sexy as hell, sassy and loud redhead gets seated next to the window a seat away from him with no one in between them.  He knows who she is but she has no clue who he is, she has acted in several dreams of his over the years but especially that first year of college.  Never knowing he had appeared in all of her dreams since she was 15.  Part way home he lets her know who he isso the story of Michael and Stella begins 

     I loved this story.  This has so much going on but all in a good way.  A way that wants to make you keep on reading.  This author has a way of only revealing so many of the surprises to the plot at a time.  Just when you think you know where it’s finally going think again.  You will laugh, cry, and feel oh so sad but it will all be worth it in the end.
