He'll be any man she wants--except himself. A Strangers on a Train StoryMeet me at the train museum after dark. Dress for 1957. When Mandy joins an online dating service, she keeps her expectations low. All she wants is a distraction from the drudgery of single parenthood and full-time work. But the invitation she receives from a handsome man who won't share his real name promises an adventure--and a chance to pretend she's someone else for a few hours. She doesn't want romance to complicate her life, but Mandy's monthly role-playing dates with her stranger on a train--each to a different time period--become the erotic escape she desperately needs. And a soul connection she never expected. Yet when she tries to draw her lover out of the shadows, Mandy has a fight on her hands...to convince him there's a place for their fantasy love in the light of day. Warning: Contains sexy role-playing, theatrical application of coal dust, and a hero who can rock a pair of brown polyester pants.17,000 words; 66 pages.

I did feel there was a bit too much thinking and exposition in the heroine's mind. But I ...
Rating: 3.5 StarsYet another short but truly worthy and emotional read from Knox. I'm not a huge fan of that abrupt ending - it came out of nowhere - but I was surprised by the direction this book took. Not at all what I expected from the racy synopsis.
Sweet story :)Not everything is what it seems and I guess the other way around :)
Being a history buff and lover of pop culture and Americana myself, I loved the clever premise of this novella. It was refreshingly original. Despite the length, the characters were well developed and I felt a connection with them. I consider it a "keeper" and I believe that I'll read it again.
