Today I am reviewing Try, Try Again by Ruth Logan Herne.
Here is the brief synopsis:
Powerful and rich, Wall Street financial wizard Conor Bradstreet had it all until his son’s death showed him otherwise.
A decade older and wiser, Conor now faces the final step in his healing – making peace with his ex-wife.
Peace with Conor is the last thing on Alicia Bradstreet’s mind. Losing her son took more than her heart, it darkened her soul.
But with their daughter’s engagement to a single father comes the expectation of harmony. Can Alicia move beyond her anger… and Conor beyond his guilt… to Try, Try Again?
Join award-winning author Ruth Logan Herne as she spins a journey of faith, hope and love in her typical heart-touching style, a path that winds around the honor of a derelict former cop, a small child who misses her mother and a dog just aching for a second chance… much like his new owners.
** This story is not available on paperback.
This story has been compared to It’s A Wonderful Life . . . and in my opinion, it’s every bit as good a story! It will grab you right at the start — and it won’t let go until the very end!
Conor Bradstreet wants nothing more than to make up for his past . . . but can he?
Ruth Logan Herne does a wonderful job creating entertaining characters. Alicia is one you won’t easily forget — she is so determined to hold on to her pain, she has no idea how others view her. I admit, it wasn’t easy reading; I didn’t think she would ever let go. But it was most definitely realistic. I could picture her angst and her determination to not forgive — or forget — the past.
If you’re in the mood for a contemporary romance with tons of emotions, grab a copy of Try, Try Again (available in digital format).
