Begin Again by Christy Newton

Publisher Description

What if one night changed your life forever?
Maisie Scott lost not only her husband and unborn child in a tornado two years ago, she lost her will to live. Keeping busy is the only way she can get by. This small town waitress won't let herself get attached to anyone … until Ryan, the new veterinarian for exotic animals, starts making regular trips to her diner. As hard as she tries not to feel anything, Ryan ignites a spark in her broken heart. Ryan Tucker craves a happy family of his own more than his Momma’s apple pie. Getting over his fiancĂ©e leaving him six months ago, he moves to Pleasant Valley for a fresh start. When he meets Maisie and notices the sadness in her eyes, he is determined to put a smile on her pretty face. When another dangerous storm hits, Ryan stays by Maisie's side. She fills the missing piece in his heart, but will Ryan share his secret? Can Maisie move on from the past and learn to begin again?


This is a sweet story of loss and second chances. Maisie has survived a nightmare. She is stuck in the motions of living but has given up. She lives with her sister, her whole family is worried that Maisie will never move on from her loss. Ryan has been coming in to the dinner where Maisie works for the apple pie and to see her. Love doesn't come fast, and I wouldn't expect it to. The author, Christy Newton, does a good job portraying Maisie as the widow dipping her toe back in the dating pool. Ryan is patient with Maisie. She's gun shy about having her heart broken again.

It is a beautiful story. The love scenes are kept behind closed doors. No explicit, or even non explicit, love scenes. It is an emotional story. I caught myself tear up more than once. I was left was a very warm, fuzzy feeling at the end of the book.
