My rating: 4 of 5 stars
If you’re a fan of romance novelist Debbie Macomber you simply cannot miss her new book releasing this week. When Nichole finds that her husband, Jake, has been cheating on her during their short marriage, she decides she can’t keep giving him one more chance and files for divorce. This gives her mother-in-law the courage to admit that she’s turned a blind eye to Jake’s father’s cheating for their entire marriage and she won’t continue.
Nichole and her MIL Leanne end up taking apartments across the hall from each other and make a plan to help them not only get through but thrive during this new and unfamiliar time. Leanne takes a volunteer position teaching English as a second language and becomes friends with a lovely Ukrainian immigrant widower named Nikolai who has much to teach her about starting over if she can open her heart to him.
And Nichole meets a rough-edged tow truck company owner named Rocco, a decent, hard working guy with a daughter. He’s a wonderful father, but feeling a little out of his comfort zone with dresses and dances and all the things that go along with raising a teenaged girl and is happy to have Nichole’s input. Neither he nor Nichole are certain they want to move forward with a relationship, especially when Jake decides to try to work things out with Nichole and threatens to sue for custody of their young son if she keeps on seeing Rocco.
In true Debbie Macomber fashion, it’s heartwarming and sweet and a HEA is practically guaranteed. I received this book as an ARC through NetGalley.
