It's Better This Way: A Novel Kindle Edition
|New from||Used from|
It’s been nearly six years since Julia Jones had her heart broken. After her husband became involved with another woman, she did everything she could to save their marriage, to no avail. The couple’s two daughters continue to stand by Julia in the wake of their father’s behavior—and they’ve had a tough time getting along with the other woman who’s become their stepmother. Distraught after selling the family home, Julia moves into a condominium complex that offers the warmth and charm of a fresh start. Now, having settled into her new community and sold her successful interior design business, she’s embraced a fulfilling new life, one that doesn’t seem to need a man in it. Her beloved father’s trusty saying is ringing truer than ever: It’s better this way.
But when Julia meets a handsome new resident in the building’s exercise room, she can’t help but be drawn to him. Heath Johnson is a welcome change from the men she’s encountered on the occasional—mostly disastrous—dates her sister has eagerly planned for her over the years. As she and Heath, a divorcé himself, begin to grow close, their friendship blossoms into an unexpected love. However, they soon realize that combining families proves to be a challenge, even though their four children are adults.
When a dramatic revelation threatens the happiness they’ve found, Julia and Heath must reconcile their love for their children with their love for each other. If they can’t, their bright future together may be nothing but a dream.
“Macomber keeps her well-shaded, believable characters at the heart of this seamlessly plotted novel as she probes the nuances of familial relationships and the agelessness of romance. This deeply emotional tale proves it’s never too late for love.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review

Six years later and divorced Julia has found herself a really nice condo where she finally feels at home. She has her interior design business to keep her busy. Each day she goes to the exercise room where one day she meets Heath. For awhile they just say 'Hi' to each other. Then they start to have coffee after their workouts. Soon they are dating. Julia never thought she would find love again but she feels different now. Heath is also divorced and also can't believe his luck in finding Julia.
Unfortunately their romance did not go smoothly. At times it almost seemed like they were over. But the road to true love never runs smooth. They had many obstacles to overcome and also some surprises. I loved this book so much that once I started it I couldn't put it down. I read it all in one day and didn't want it to end. I loved it !

Her last book A walk along the beach was just as dull. Sorry but they just seem to be getting worse.
