Twelve years ago, Carole Samuelson was burning the candle at both ends. At one end, was her strong attraction to Grayson Smith, and at the other was Peter Jones. These conflicting relationships led to a breakup hurting Grayson, and was followed by her marriage to Peter. When Peter dies in a car accident, their marriage is cut tragically short and Carole is left with a 6-month-old daughter. Now, after twelve long years, Carole, a freelance photographer living in Boston, and her ex-love, Grayson, an antiques dealer in La Jolla, California, are reunited at a wedding in Boston on Columbus Day weekend. Their romance is rekindled during that idyllic October holiday, and they end up marrying the following June. This long-awaited romance brings with it much joy the second time around, rekindling a renewal of spirit and a passion for travel, as well as for the finer things in life. Their changing lives now revolve around remodeling their Beacon Hill townhouse, and enjoying numerous recipes for romantic living ... and dining. The novel Since Boston lives up to the classic song lyrics: Love is lovelier, the second time around.
