ABOUT THE BOOK
Title: Then Again, Maybe
Series: Along Came Love
Author: Susan L. Tuttle
Publisher: BLING! Romance
Release Date: November 17, 2020
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Former beauty queen Belle Thornton knows what it is to think she has it all, only to discover she never valued what was truly important. Raising her daughter and building a thriving thrift shop that helps single mothers like herself has taught Belle what the word beautiful really means. Unfortunately, thanks to her shady landlord, Belle must toss those hard-earned dollars into the money-pit of a rental that houses both her tiny apartment and her business or risk the city closing her doors. When funds dwindle as quickly as her to-do list grows, she is forced to rely on the absolute last rescuer she’d choose: Micah Shaw.
Leaving Belle at the altar, pregnant, was the worst choice Micah ever made. He returns home, hoping to reconcile with Belle and their toddler. While balancing his medical residency with caring for his ailing mother, he strives to win Belle’s heart again and ensure her business remains open. Helping with that is the easy part. Chiseling through the rock encompassing Belle's heart is more of a challenge, but one he’s determined to conquer.
If only he could get her to realize that a new lease on love may be their best collaboration of all.
Belle Thornton is in a bind, an ex-beauty queen, single mother with passion for her community and the women in it, she is struggling to keep the doors of her small business open and up to code. She is independent and outgoing, a fantastic mother to her three year old daughter. I admired how much she cares about the women in her community, and how she finds a way to integrate the older and younger generations in a positive way.
Micah Shaw has a lot on his plate between juggling his last year of residency and caring for his ailing mother, but when he get's the chance to be a part of Belle and Anna's life again, he jumps at the chance to make it up to them. Even though he left Belle in the past, he was a likable character and it definitely helped to understand a little bit of his side of the story. He spreads himself thin and is very hardworking, making the extra effort to be present for Belle and Anna.
This was a fast paced and engaging romance, with fantastic tension and chemistry throughout. I thoroughly enjoyed the plot, filled with wonderful characters who care for and are supportive of one another. I enjoyed the strong theme of forgiveness and second chances, even though I didn't want to like Micah, I ended up loving him! Heartwarming and sweet, with great interaction. I absolutely loved how the retirement community helped the single mothers with childcare. A highly enjoyable read, that pulled me in from the very beginning!
I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
