  • Emotional

    "A Girl's Guide to Moving On" by Debbie Macomber. This is a story about a daughter in-law and her mother in-law. This is a different type story than I normally read. You have a unique situation where a daughter in-law files for a divorce because her husband was unfaithful. The mother in-law feels that she has done a disservice to her son by overlooking her husbands unfaithfulness. She files for a divorce too. Nichole's biggest supporter is her mother in-law. The daughter in-law, Nichole, and mother in-law Leanne end up dating very different men from the ones they had been married to. Will they be able to take a chance on love again? There are twists and turns that were unexpected in this story. After reading the story, you see the importance of forgiveness and that people can change. This is very different from the typical romance novels but I really enjoyed it. This novel goes much deeper plus you get two romances in one story. I received a copy of this book from NetGalley/Random House Publishing Group for an honest review.

  • Sometimes You Just Have to Start Over

    This is the second book in the new beginnings series and what a book it is! You have LeAnne, a society woman in her 60's, who has spent her entire marriage looking the other way as she was cheated on by her husband. Then you have Nicole, the daughter-in-law of LeAnne in her 30's, who has just found out that her husband is exactly like his father and not only cheated on her, but got his flavor of the day pregnant. Nicole wastes no time, she files for divorce and heads on to start over with her child. LeAnne, taking strength from Nicole, does the same. The story follows them as they find their place in the world and taking care of themselves as they find their way. The relationships they develop with each other and the people they come in contact with. This was a very well written story of starting over and finding a place in the world after losing the only life you have known. The character development was rich and robust. I listened to this book on CD and must say the readers did an excellent job of bringing the characters to life.

  • Poignant, and Emotional!!

    Drastic life changes. Are we strong enough to overcome them, how? Nichole and Leanne face these dilemmas. Through divorce, Nicole travels from the rich, country club, affluent world to struggling middle class; from being a couple to single parent. Leanne still has her wealth, after over 30 years of marriage. She rejects that lifestyle and stays near her daughter-in-law, Nichole and grandson, Owen. They struggle through the pain of deceit that led to their divorces. (Includes the mens journeys as well.) Different women, different ages dealing with similar problems. Beautifully expressed in this poignant, emotional story. Second in a series, but a remarkable stand alone. 4 1/2 stars. Received book free through Netgally for honest review.

  • A story of faith and starting over

    I enjoyed this story much more than I thought I would. I've read many books by Debbie Macomber and have loved most of them. This is the second book in the New Beginnings series. I read the first one and liked it OK but there were parts that I felt were a bit "preachy." I know that Ms. Macomber is very open about her faith in God but I don't recall having faith mentioned quite so strongly before in one of her stories (other than maybe her "angel" series and her Christmas stories). This book brings faith into play as well but somehow it seemed to fit better for me. You don't need to have read the first book - Last One Home - to enjoy this one but the main characters are introduced in that story. A Girl's Guide to Moving on is told in first person POV with chapters alternating between Nichole and Leanne. I can't recall reading any other book by Ms. Macomber that was written in this style. Nichole and Leanne are starting over. Nicole was married to Leanne's son, Jake. Both Jake and his father were serial cheaters. When Leanne tells Nichole that Jake has been cheating on her she does so out of love because she doesn't want Nichole to be like her and turn a blind eye to what Jake is doing. She urges Nichole to break the cycle and not stay with Jake like she stayed with his father which she felt set a bad example for Jake. Nichole vows to leave Jake and set a better example for her son. When Nichole decides to leave Jake, Leanne knows that she also needs to break with her cheating husband. These two women have a close relationship - Nichole's parents are deceased - so they become each others support system in the new life they are creating. They develop a list of things to do and not do and that list becomes their "Guide to Moving On." I've never been divorced but people close to me have so I can sympathize with what these two are going through. I was really surprised by how this book made me feel; I was in tears many times while reading this. Because this is a story of hope and love I was pretty sure that these two would find new loves during the book. The men they meet and fall for are so different from their former husbands but they are good men. Nichole and Leanne's path to happiness is not smooth - both are faced with very difficult life-changing decisions - but reading the story of how they get there was inspiring. Once I got past the first couple of chapters I couldn't put this one down. *****Reviewed for Xtreme-Delusions***** I received an ARC of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
