  • Forgiveness, Pain of Divorce, Second Chances

    Julia Jones thought she and her husband were the best kind of partners, until he came home and told her he was leaving her for another woman. She fought hard to keep her marriage, but there wasn't a whole lot of hope of success when she was the only one fighting. Signing the divorce papers ended 31 years of being Eddie's wife, but it started a war that their adult daughters kept alive with their father and the "other woman". Six years have passed and the girls have had basically no contact with their father, mostly because he INSISTS on including his new wife in any interactions. To top it off, both girls absolutely HATE her sons, who HATE them right back. Is it really better this way? Six years down the line and Julia is now settled. She had to sell the home she loved as part of the divorce settlement, but she found a condominium that immediately felt like home. As an interior decorator, she has made it hers. Nearing her 60th birthday, Julia has sold her successful interior design business and cut back her working hours to those of a consultant. She's convinced that her life is full and she doesn't need a man to make her complete, in spite of what her family thinks. Then one morning, she steps into the condo's exercise room where a handsome man is already using the room. As they workout side-by-side, exercise leads to coffee leads to dinner leads to more. Is she willing to risk her heart again for this man? Heath Wilson has also been alone for six years. Moving into the condo was pure luck, as far as he was concerned. Meeting Julia, however, that has been fantastic. He never though exercising could be the brightest spot in his day until she changed her schedule. Finding a woman who "gets" him and makes him feel again is way more than he ever expected. Could she be the one? As Julia and Heath get to know one another, the more they learn, the more they like, until one day Heath's son sees her and instantly shows animosity toward her. His revelation to his father throws more than just a wrench in the works. It's the whole toolbox! Can these two fight both of their families to win a love neither saw coming? Debbie Macomber writes some of the most emotional fiction out there, and this one was another doozy! Pretty sure I went through half a box of Kleenex at one point, so be prepared. This is a story about forgiveness, about the pain of divorce, and about second chances. I highly, highly recommend!

  • Loved it

    It’s Better This Way by Debbie Macomber was, as usual, unputdownable for me. Once I pick up her books, I had better carve out a few hours, because I know I will be engrossed. Julia has been divorced from her husband for six years. She has vowed to never get involved with another man again. Then she meets Heath, a fellow resident in her condo building. Heath is also divorced. They have a lot of obstacles to overcome to be together. I loved the characters. The author’s characters are always so well developed that I feel like I know them. We get a brief glimpse of Willa from A Walk Along the Beach. I think, overall, this book is pretty realistic of divorces when the kids are adults and their parents have been married for twenty plus years. Thank you to Netgalley and Random House-Ballantine for the ARC. All opinions expressed are my own.
