Evvie Drake Starts Over

 I've had Evvie Drake Starts Over on my to-read pile for a while now.  I selected it to read in Jan because it fits the motif of new beginnings.   I was pleasantly surprised by the story and enjoyed it thoroughly.  The development of the characters and their relationship was well thought out and made sense;  it was too Hallmark moviesque.   If you are looking for a nice feel-good romance for February I can recommend this one.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I feel like I am late to the game reading this book but I’m so glad I finally got to it. It’s a little bit romance a lot of soul searching and broken people. I think anyone who has ever doubted themselves or is a people pleaser will relate to Evvie. There are definitely some humorous moments in the book and there are definitely sad moments. I loved watching her recovery and her growth as an individual. It’s an inspiring story to start off a new year
