***THIS BOOK WAS PROVIDED TO NERD GIRL IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
What happens when a free-spirited artist from big-city New York collides with an uptight business owner from small-town Ocracoke? Fireworks. The kind neither saw coming.
A single call is all it takes to drive artist Ti Russo into what she does best. Run. But hey, lying low in a beach town for a while isn’t so bad. Thanks to the distraction of playing consultant to a guy she’s determined to crack, she can almost forget about the past stalking her back home. But she never counted on the real danger being a picket-fenced life she has no business falling for.
Focus and self-preservation have gotten single dad Drew Anderson through the last nine years. With the threat of his shop’s foreclosure jeopardizing his daughter’s health care, the last thing he needs is a distracting hippie chick swooping in to shake up what he’s fought to protect. Including himself. The bank’s deadline adds enough pressure without re-risking feelings better left buried.
But as sparks flare and secrets escalate, the race against time propels Ti and Drew into a choice neither’s ready to make: Find the faith to surrender their past or forfeit their only chance to begin again.
Download Begin Again and escape into a sparks-flying, opposites-attract contemporary clean romance full of small-town charm, broken characters, and deep undertones of grace that’ll win your heart.
If you’re a Luke Danes and Lorelai Gilmore fan, you’ll love Drew and Ti’s sparring relationship, along with Begin Again’s small-town setting, quirky characters, and family bonds.

Each book in the Home In You Series is a standalone and can be read separately. But I recommend reading the books in order if you want to follow the overall timeline:
Write Me Home – Book One
Begin Again – Book Two
This book was well written, the characters were relatable and refreshing and the plot flowed quickly. The reason I give this a 4 star instead of a 5 star is because there were too many things left unfinished. I felt like I was missing a lot of answers when I reached the end. What happened to Annie? What happens to Ti’s dad? Does she finish a new painting to go to San Francisco? Does she let them know she isn’t going to take the job? What about New York? These are just a few that are still running around my brain….I wanted more answers, more closure, more tied ends.
I felt like maybe there were a few too many tendrils to the story and some of them got lost. Don’t get me wrong, the main characters and their story is a fun one – you will yell, cry and scream at them while you are reading, but for me, those secondary stories needed more. Ti and Drew will leave you with a book couple hangover and I pity the next couple that you read because you won’t be ready for them….no matter how much time has passed.
Grab this book and her others and be prepared to be wowed! You will quickly discover that you have found a hidden gem of an author!
