Synopsis: Three seconds is all it takes to turn a whole life around.
And if anybody knows about bouncing back after disaster, it's Clare Wilson. She's had it with being married to a serial cheater, and no way is he getting another chance. Even her own son thinks she should have kicked his dad to the curb ages ago. Now she's done it for good, and Clare is finally feeling the rush of unadulterated freedom.
But when a freak car crash lands Clare in the hospital, her life takes another detour. She might be banged up and bruised, but suddenly men are coming out of the woodwork. Even her ex is pining for her. It seems being an independent single woman is a powerful aphrodisiac. But amidst all the lust, the last thing Clare expects to find is love.
Review: Clare Wilson has forgiven her husband for his philandering ways so many times even her family has lost respect for her. However, this time is the last time and she and their son are living apart from him during their separation. When Clare goes to their old house, she catches Roger in the act again. Speeding away from her humiliation, she’s pulled over by a very understanding cop, Sam Jankowski. Sam lets Clare off with a warning and then looks on in horror as a car running the red light slams into Clare’s car and puts her in the hospital. When Clare awakens, she’s decided to take charge of her life once more. She starts divorce proceedings with the help of her sister Maggie, the lawyer, and looks into going back to work. Clare finds out it is never too late to start fresh. NEVER TOO LATE is a beautifully realistic romance novel. I admired Clare and her sisters for their perseverance and for finally realizing they still could make things work for themselves. There was a small thread in the story which was never resolved into the big picture, but for me this didn’t detract from the overall effect. NEVER TOO LATE will have readers laughing, crying, and believing in new possibilities.
