Then Comes Love
by Lindsay Detwiler
“Sometimes love changed everything. Sometimes love came when you least expected it. Sometimes you gave up on life, gave up on finding out who you were supposed to be. And then, when you’d forgotten what it felt like, when you’d dismissed the ideal entirely . . . then, well . . . then came love.”
I haven’t had a lot of luck with ARCs lately. Honestly, I’d pretty much quit taking them. And then Lil’ Maso asked me if I wanted to read this little gem. She sent over the blurb and I immediately just…..knew.
This was going to be a good one.
I am SO glad I was right! So glad I decided to review it. Sweet, comical, and a story that follows love through three generations, Then Comes Love is probably one of the best ARCs I’ve had to pleasure of reading. I would recommend it to anyone…and everyone…..of any age.
After the death of her husband, Charlotte is heading off to an assisted living facility. Needless to say, she’s not thrilled about the idea. She is certain she’s going there to rot away the rest of her days. But why not? Her husband is gone and she’s not getting any younger . . . .but maybe age really is just a number.
Annie (50) is Charlotte’s daughter, and her husband has just left her for a thirty-something hussy. At this stage in life, after all she’s been through – the pain, the betrayal, the having to start over – she can’t help but question the point of it all. She doesn’t even know who she is after being a wife and mother for so long. And life is already crazy enough with her aging mother and wild daughter. Love is definitely out of the question . . . or is it?
Amelia (30) is the daughter of Annie and the granddaughter of Charlotte. She’s in the prime of her life and dating a man who is safe, a man she can have children with and build a life with. But grandma Charlotte knows her wild-child of a granddaughter needs something more, someone who won’t stifle her vibrant, spontaneous, go-with-the-flow personality. Neville is not that person. So, when an opportunity (and the right guy) shows up at her door….well, grandma Charlotte devises a plan to free Amelia from a life of decaf coffee and stuffy family dinners.
There were some serious LOL moments. Some sappy, make you cry moments. And just an overall sense of hope as these three women navigate through the messiness of life and love. Seriously, if you’re looking for a sweet, uplifting, fun read, this. is. IT! Grab it at any of the retailers down below:
