#REVIEW AND #GIVEAWAY: never too late, a novel by Robyn Carr


#1 New York Times bestselling author Robyn Carr examines the lives of three sisters as they step beyond the roles of wife, mother, daughter and discover the importance of being a woman first.

Clare Wilson is starting over. She's had it with her marriage to a charming serial cheater. Even her own son thinks she's given his father too many chances. With the support of her sisters, Maggie and Sarah, she's ready to move on. Facing her fortieth birthday, Clare is finally feeling the rush of unadulterated freedom.

But when a near-fatal car accident lands Clare in the hospital, her life takes another detour. While recovering, Clare realizes she has the power to choose her life's path. The wonderful younger police officer who witnessed her crash is over the moon for her. A man from her past stirs up long-buried feelings. Even her ex is pining for her. With enthusiasm and a little envy, her sisters watch her bloom.

Together, the sisters encourage each other to seek what they need to be happy. Along the way they all learn that it's never too late to begin again.


"A thought-provoking look at women…and the choices they make when they realize their lives aren't exactly what they expected—or thought they were."

—Kirkus Reviews on Four Friends

This book is about three sisters, Clare, Maggie, and Sarah. We meet Clare first, and learn about her broken marriage, done by her multi-philandering now definitely soon to-be ex-husband. Clare’s mind is made up. She’s done giving him chances as he always wants her back, and for how long this time? This made it #4. She’s DONE! She’s leaving him! 
One night when her to-be-ex was supposed to be out of town, she stops at her house where she used to live with her then husband so she could pick a few things up she wanted, yet when she walks into the supposedly empty house, she hears, then SEES her to-be Ex has picked right back up again, now with #5 (or could it be even more?) with a blonde liaison in what used to be her marital bed!
As she is driving home after she sees that, she is unknowingly T-boned by an SUV into her little Toyota which required the jaws of life to get her out. She’s barely hanging onto life and they don’t know if she’ll make it. This brings everyone back home to Dad’s house where the sisters end up bonding with one another again.
Maggie is an extremely high powered attorney who has so much money they are swimming in it. Everything she owns is top quality, right down to her barely there hot hair!
Sarah, alone, suffering from depression, with no friends, and she’s single, too, doesn’t even want to leave her apartment every day, but does so to see Maggie.
How this accident brings these amazing sisters bonded back together again, is even better than at any other time in their lives, is amazing!  
I read an Advanced eReader’s Copy for this review, so this line may or may not be in the finished copy as I don’t have it to compare it to, but there was one sentence in the very beginning that instantly connected me with this book, and it was something I could relate to in a huge way, is, “Once a woman is secure in her heart and mind there’s almost no more powerful force in nature.” So true! I loved it! That set the tone in this book for me instantly! This author’s writing had me in the beginning, instantly, invested in this story to begin with, but when I came upon that, and having experienced that exact thought/event in my own life, this author hit it head-on! I knew her book was going to be great from that one sentence! Sure enough!
Have you read a Robyn Carr novel yet? I HIGHLY recommend it! This was my first novel by her, and I am an now an ‘over-the-moon fan’! I see what everyone loves about her books and why they hit the the NY Times Bestseller lists!
I loved this book, LOVE her writing, and LOVED the story and how she portrayed life as regular, everyday occurrences we can ALL relate to! Let’s say I really enjoyed this story, and it sounds like I would love ALL her books! I have a ‘new to me’ author to follow and read, with a LOT of books to catch up on that she has written! I’m SO excited! I received this book for FREE from the publisher, Harlequin/Mira, the ebook from NetGalley in exchange to read and write a review about it.
