Julia Monroe Begins Again by Rebekah Millet // Review

Lucie's Review: 

At 40 years old, having raise two wonderful young men, and successfully run her own small business, Julia Monroe wonders if there might still be more out there for her. When into her life walks her former flame Sam, a retired Green Beret. 

I'll just be straightforward, this wasn't a good fit for me. I really liked Sam and Julia as individuals, they have both come a long way and accomplished many great things, but being together just didn't bring out the best in either. The story seemed drawn out, and I wasn't connecting much with Julia, the secondhand embarrassment was strong. 

There were good themes of trusting God to hold the reins of the future, as well as some great and supportive side characters. There were also good themes of forgiveness and faith. 

Overall, this just wasn't the one for me. I really wanted to like it, because I love "older heroines" and love later in life. I can see where many others will likely differ in their opinions and that is great, but it just wasn't for me. 

I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
