officialsynopA heartwarming, giggle-inducing romance from Darcie Boleyn, just in time for the wedding season!
Will you marry me…again?

When Annie Thomas agrees to give her ex away at his wedding to his boyfriend, she thinks she’ll be fine. With her three children at her side, she can handle anything. Then she finds out her gorgeous first ex-husband Evan Llewellyn is flying in from his glamorous life in New York to attend as well!

An unexpected pregnancy ended their relationship and as she stumbles through the ups and downs of life as a working single mum – helping everyone else find a happy ending along the way – Annie refuses to believe their old and incredibly hot spark can still exist.

It’s only when she and Evan are forced to face up to the past together that they’ll discover if they can have their own happily-ever-after too!

officialreviewAnnie Thomas had been divorced, twice. Afraid that she’d lose control of her family’s situation, with her seventeen-year old daughter’s teenage crisis, and her youngest child’s wet-bed problems plus dog poop issues, Annie embodied the true essence of being a woman – being a mother.

Her second ex-husband, Dex was getting married again. Annie loved Dex too much and respected him when she learned that he’s going to tie the knot with his boyfriend Trevor. What shook her tough-look persona though, was her first ex, Evan when she realized he was going to attend the wedding, too. Evan’s a jet-setter. He’s been to places all over the world, thanks to his glamorous job. which may have also been the very reason why they separated in the first place.

Seeing him again would definitely break her resolve as a single mother. Was she willing to take another chance at a failed marriage? Will the feelings of old bring something new in her life?

In Annie’s world, being divorced didn’t mean condemning your ex-husband. In fact, Annie’s been friends with her former spouses and remained so through the years. Their children may have been left to her care, but she made sure that they recognize and communicate with their fathers in every way possible.

I liked how Darcie Boleyn made Annie a very realistic and engaging character. Annie was able to portray a role who endured trials and tribulations the way only a mother could. Her children were a handful, but it made her stronger and more determined to raise them. Her quest for forever may had been on a long and winding road, but she made sure she’s gonna get there, by hook or by crook.

I think this is now one of my favorite family story, heartwarming, moving and stirring. I guarantee that Something Old, Something New is a perfect read for Mothers’ Day.
