MY REVIEW

I had never read anything by Susan Tuttle before. I was not prepared for the emotional roller coaster ride that Never Too Late took me on.

While Rachael is younger than I am we are in similar seasons. We dropped our daughter off at college last year, which was hard. I still have a teen at home, but I relate to the life changes and the what should I do now feeling. I also relate to her taking better care of her family than she did of herself. 

Rachael and Evan have a beautiful friendship and it weathers some hard storms. This was a deeply emotional read. While the story seemed to drag at one point, it picked up speed and came to a satisfying conclusion. Some things made my heart hurt, but the story was very realistic and the character growth was phenomenal. There were many layers to this story, grief, loss, second chances, forgiveness, a mystery, heartache, growing up, and so much more. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves contemporary romance novels.

Thank you to JustRead Publicity Tours and the author for the opportunity to read this book. I was not required to provide a positive review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

  ABOUT THE BOOK

Once, her art brought her fame. This time will it bring her love?

Widowed homemaker Rachael Stark isn’t quite sure what comes after her only child leaves for college. To fill her suddenly quiet hours and scrawny bank account, she needs a job. But painful memories prevent her from resurrecting her former art career, and motherhood isn't much of a résumé. When her best friend needs help recovering from a gunshot wound that occurred in the line of duty, she is there. Finally, someone to take care of.

Evan Wayne won't let his injury keep him from being a police officer. His dedication to protect the innocent stems from the guilt he carries over having failed his childhood friend. What he needs now is to recover and get back on the streets. Instead, he's handed a myriad of light-duty tasks by his captain―one of which involves heading up the department's entry into the town's annual mural contest. He's not an artist, but he definitely knows one. And he'll take any excuse to spend more time with her.

When Rachael agrees to paint for Evan, she never expects to also be drawn into finding answers for the mother of a missing child. As the two friends work side by side on the mural and the case, their feelings move beyond friendship. But with Evan unwilling to leave his dangerous job, and Rachael unwilling to risk another loss of a loved one, their fears may paint over the promise of a beautiful future together.

  2. This does sound good. My kids are still at home, but I did drop them both off at college a few years back, but like a boomerang, they have returned! LOL.
