Anne's first novel, A Medical Affair, (Booktrope 2013) is the intriguing story of a doctor who violates a sacred medical oath by having an affair with one of his patients. Her recent novel, The Passion Thief, (Booktrope 2014) is the story of a a woman, aptly named Betty Boomer, in a stale midlife marriage, and her encounter with the one who got away.
The Passion Thief (Booktrope, 2014) The tumble between the sheets can get a little stale and infrequent in some marriages. At least that’s what Betty Boomer tells herself at night, while Stan, her husband of two decades, snores upright on the couch. Emboldened by too much Chardonnay, she searches the Internet for her college boyfriend Michael, the proverbial one who got away. Memories of their youthful passion reignite a lust Betty thought had dried up long ago. Michael responds to Betty’s cyber message, and temptation calls this globe-trotting freelance journalist. While Stan’s idea of excitement is staying up past ten o’clock on a Saturday night, Michael has evolved into a flashy Las Vegas casino manager with three ex-wives. Which man offers stimulation and which one brings monotony coupled with reliability is vividly clear. Written with the yearning and struggle many women feel, Betty Boomer is not alone when she asks, “Is this all I need or should I take another shot at passion?” Author Anne McCarthy Strauss brings us her latest women’s fiction coupled with a large dose of romantic comedy and a dozen long-stemmed roses.
On the shelter side, Anne has written for both consumer and trade magazines including Old House Journal, Waterfront Home & Design, Design Trade Magazine, Distinction, Log Home Design Ideas and Florida Design Review. She has written regularly for Martha's Vineyard Magazine and Vineyard Style.
