Do Over by Mari Carr

4.0 to 4.5 Stars

This novella had so much depth and wonderful relate-able characters.

This was a beautiful, moving, well crafted and yes very sexy book, but the sex is secondary to the story.

I think a lot of women would relate to Faith. Her children have left home, she loves her husband of 25 years but something is missing. She is going through “empty nest” syndrome and is wondering what her life will have to offer without her children at home.

Her husband Troy gives her an unexpected Anniversary gift of going back to their hometown where they grew up and had so many memories to surprise her with a “do over” of things in their past and to reignite some of the passion which is missing from their marriage.

Faith and Troy communicate really well so you have don’t have angst in this book, but what you have is something very special between a couple searching to create memories for the remainder of their lives.

The letters had me tearing up. They were beautiful and Troy was just such a wonderful character. I loved Faith and Troy. This story was sweet, emotional and I definitely cried once or twice.

This book was such a pleasant surprise and I enjoyed every page. I finished it in one sitting because I just couldn’t put it down.
