9781402253164: The Queen of New Beginnings

What happens when your best hope for the future is through the past?

Voice-over artist Alice avoids telling the truth. It's not lying, exactly, and the freedom of reinvention makes those tough years in the past a little easier to bear. So when she meets writer Clayton Miller, she recognizes the suspicious signs of someone who wants to shrug off his old life. Untangling the web of secrets they've constructed creates an unlikely friendship-until Alice discovers that Clayton has betrayed her in the worst possible way.

The author of fifteen international bestsellers, Erica James deftly explores infidelity, bereavement, and the bonds of family with a sparkling voice that will resonate long after the book is finished.

About the Author:

The author of fourteen bestselling novels, including Gardens of Delight, which won the Romantic Novel of the Year Award, Erica James now divides her time between Cheshire, England, and Lake Como in Italy.

Review:

"At first I thought this book would be fluffy chick lit but it is much more than that... This book seemed to be a mix of chick lit, southern fiction and romance all rolled into one." - Palmer's Picks for Reading

"The strength in this novel, however, is the dialogue. It is simply fantastic-witty, funny, honest. It divulged appropriately who the characters were. " - Library of Clean Reads

Part of the story's charm is the fact that it takes place in England. I don't know what it is about British authors but I find British chick lit to be far superior to American chick lit in many cases. This is one of them. James has an extensive backlist and I look forward to discovering more of her works.
The strong characterizations make for a tender second chance at love tale if the lead duet can take that leap of faith and trust in their respective hearts.
There is something about this book that is just bright and shiny and cheered me up in spite of the troubles of last week. I also love that this was just as much of a family drama as it is a romance. Both genres were very well done and balanced well. James also accomplished the very rare feat of creating amazing characters and having them all be likable-even Rufus.
This a great contemporary romance with a flair for the dramatic. The characters are engaging and funny and I think readers will find them easy to identify with and their story a tale that could happen in every day life. I recommend this one to romance readers of all kinds. A great story about a second chance at love.
