Staff Reviews


Charming is the first word that comes to mind about Evvie Drake Starts Over. Characters are what draw me in to a novel and the characters in this novel are richly developed. I was cheering Evvie on during the entire novel. Set in Maine, Evvie is a small town girl who is supposed to be grieving the death of her husband. No one knows she was literally in the car leaving him when she learns of his death. Her best friend, Andy, encourages her to rent her spare apartment to his other friend , Dean, a former Yankee pitcher who has been forced to retire due to a case of the "yips" and is looking to escape the public. A witty, warm romance ensues as the two emotionally battered characters try to find themselves so they can find each other.

“Evvie Drake is young and newly widowed, but no one knows that on the day her husband died, she had finally worked up the nerve to leave him. Dean Tenney is a major league baseball pitcher who has inexplicably lost the talent that made him a star. When Dean moves to Evvie’s small town to escape the humiliating sports headlines, their friendship proves to be just what both of them need. This is an absolute treasure of a novel — big-hearted, funny, sweet, and utterly satisfying. I cannot wait to sell this charming gem.”
