REVIEW: Begin Again by Christy Newton


What if one night changed your life forever?

Maisie Scott lost not only her husband and unborn child in a tornado two years ago, she lost her will to live. Keeping busy is the only way she can get by. This small town waitress won't let herself get attached to anyone . . . until Ryan, the new veterinarian for exotic animals, starts making regular trips to her diner. As hard as she tries not to feel anything, Ryan ignites a spark in her broken heart.

Ryan Tucker craves a happy family of his own more than his momma’s apple pie. Getting over his fiancĂ©e leaving him six months ago, he moves to Pleasant Valley for a fresh start. When he meets Maisie and notices the sadness in her eyes, he is determined to put a smile on her pretty face.

When another dangerous storm hits, Ryan stays by Maisie's side. She fills the missing piece in his heart, but will Ryan share his secret? Can Maisie move on from the past and learn to begin again?

My feelings are a little mixed on this one. It seems a little unrealistic and they don’t really seem to know each other that well when he starts talking about falling for her and not having a future without her. It really comes off more as infatuation bordering on obsession than love, at least at first. However, while it moved a little fast, it was overall very sweet and heartwarming to see Maisie find happiness after the tragedy she endured.

Bottom Line:

Begin Again is a story about surviving and finding happiness where you least expect it. It’s worth checking out.
