Product description

About the Author

A native New Yorker living deep in the heart of Texas, Julie can remember writing her first “early romances” at age 5 or 6, and then hiding the pages, so that no one would find them. In college, where her focus was creative writing, she was forced to share her work, much to the chagrin of her male classmates, who were then obligated to read and critique romance on a weekly basis. Post-graduation, Julie started writing another kind of fiction pursuing a corporate career that entailed copywriting, creating marketing materials and writing ads for Fortune 500 companies and non-profit organizations. An avid nature photographer with insatiable wanderlust, Julie prefers traveling backroads and blue highways in search of finding picturesque treasures and roadside cafés. Known for detailed writing that makes readers feel like they are right there in the scene, her love of learning can be witnessed by the amount of research Julie does for her books. A lover of animals and anything space-related, Julie is a self-proclaimed map geek, uber-serious Bruce Springsteen fan and a dedicated foodie.

Reviewed by Donna Elsegood on behalf of KFF

I was very pleased to learn Julie had written a new offering as I am quite the fan of her past works. I've always loved the style of this author with her ability to draw you into the story and make you feel every emotion the character goes through. I'm a great believer in things happen for a reason and am sure our pathways are mapped out for us. This is a second chance romance and as I read through, I kept thinking about why things didn't go down a certain route the first-time round. Learning about the characters and the experiences of their lives made a lot of sense.

Tara and Wes meet on a cruise ship and there is an instant attraction. They share a deep connection that is so intense, I could feel it. It was like they had been living in a parallel universe, with all the similarities of their likes and dislikes. Like many holidays, they part ways but due to some of the events on the cruise, Tara says to herself she wants a do-over since Wes was the one who got away.

Years later, Tara is an independent, hardworking single mum having gone through a divorce. Tara decides to try and get into the dating game and again with some very hilarious results. I did laugh pretty hard at one of her encounters with a guy that was a dentist. They say you have to kiss a few frogs before you find your prince and ooh boy, did she find a few of them! It’s by chance or coincidence that Wes walks back into Tara's life. The attraction and connection is still pretty palpable even after all this time.

" I want a do-over."

"I'm not going to respond to you with the mean thing you said to me when I told you that.

The Do-Over was something special. Wonderful story, wonderful characters!
This book is about second chances, fate, loss and LOVE.

Tara met Wes on a cruise ship when she was travelling alone. They clicked straight away, it was like they had known each other all their lives. They were attracted to each other, they were made for each other but Wes had a girlfriend… Their story stopped when they disembarked the cruise ship.

“You know we have been like one-degree of separation people our whole lives.”

10 years later, Tara is in her late thirties, divorced and a mum. She is insecure, funny, caring and sweet and most of all endearing. She is easy to identify with because she’s so real. Laynie her friend helps her to find love online but things don’t go as planned for Tara.

“I wanted to share my life with someone who just got me, someone who I could laugh with, someone who would hold me when I cried, someone who would show up with a bunch of blue hydrangeas just because”

Everything changes when her path crosses with Wes again at a business meeting.

“Wes Bergman would always be my big What If. And I wanted a do-over.”

WES!!! I love him so so much. We experienced heart breaking moments in Wes’s life and we can’t help but loving his character even more. The way Wes bond with Tara’s daughter …. made my heart melt. He is caring, thoughtful and devoted - a real Gentleman and the embodiment of ROMANTICISM.

“I’ve never greeted the morning light with anyone but you.”

The secondary characters play a momentous role in the story- the dialogue, the banter and emotion.

Now that Wes and Tara found their way back to each other , is it time for them to follow their heart?

Julie A Richman is one of a very few authors that has the ability to draw her subject matter from real life in a way that doesn’t leave the reader feeling as if the story is cutting a little too close to home and for me that shows a very deft touch, I enjoy the realism that her approach brought to this story and because of that, this was one that kept me awake until the early hours.
I liked the fact that the characters had some age to them, they weren’t whippersnappers, they had lived, they had experiences and regrets and in true Richman style they could have been family, they were written in such a way as it was impossible to not feel as if their lives were intimately personal to us.
I liked the fact that the story was a proper romance, it was about feelings and effect, it took love and showed that given the opportunity love will not only flourish but will sustain. I enjoyed the fact that the intimacy of the characters wasn’t the be all and end all, it was a tiny part of who they were and I wanted to get to know the bigger picture and was comfortable in the fact that with this author that is exactly what I was going to get.
Superbly written, a proper grown up romance that needed no gimmicks to hold my attention, emotionally this was one of favourites of the year to date.

What to say about this book, hmmmmm, I have to say that this was a slow starter, having completed the book the slow build and attention to detail in those early chapters really did benefit to the overall greatness that was this book.

Once the early chapters were done and we got into present day for Tara, the book just flowed, I was totally sucked into Tara's character, life and her situation was one that I could empathise with. Her connection to Wes is amazing and I loved. How she was always connected to him in some way but their paths didn't cross.

This book is really multi faceted, there is lust, love, angst, heartbreak all moulded together to bring a brilliant read. The book drew every emotion out of me whilst reading it and it really did touch me and I ended the book as an emotional wreck. This book will give you highs and lows, true happiness and sadness, it's just a great read one that I'm so glad that I read.

All in all this was a great emotional read, that will have you giggling one minute and crying the next.
