Review: The New Ever After by Julie Farley

Publisher: Perfect Mamas Press (December 8, 2013)

Pages:  224

Genre:  Chick-lit

Synopsis:

The New Ever After is book two in The New Ever After Series. After becoming a widow with three small children, Heather Meadows is starting a new life. She has a sexy new husband, newborn twins, and a blossoming career as a writer. But with the advent of summer comes an avalanche of worries about doing it all and being enough. In her quirky style that drew readers to Tripped Up Love, Heather works through her new challenges and surprises with the fortitude she found she had when her first husband died. Only this time, her strength is put to the ultimate test as she faces losing not only her best friend but her new happily ever after as well.

my book thoughts

This is the second book in a trilogy.  I read the first book and loved it, so I had to read the second book!  Julie Farley does not disappoint.  This book brings back the characters we all fell in love with in the first book:  Heather and Peter (the newlyweds), their children (the twins have grown!), and Jenny (Heather’s best friend/assistant).

Heather’s friendship is tested, Heather and Peter’s relationship goes through some bumps in the road (or water), and readers get a chance to see how families can merge together and face the challenges all new couples face, even with children-who are still trying to figure themselves out, too.  It’s a natural extension to the first book, and fans of the first book will enjoy this one, too.

I would have liked to read more about Jenny’s personal dilemma and seen Heather and Peter as the secondary characters in this book, but it still balanced well out!! I am looking forward to the last book and can’t wait to read the next adventures Heather and Peter take us on!

    • I have really loved your two books and can’t wait for the last book. Although, I am also a little sad!! I have really enjoyed reading about Peter and Heather, and will miss them in future books of yours. However….it would be nice if they had a little cameo in future books! ;)
