Review of BEFORE AND AGAIN by Barbara Delinsky

Available on June 26, 2018 from your favorite local bookseller

Maggie is living clandestinely in a little town called Devon that is more like a resort town than a neighborhood. She works as the make-up artist at The Inn, where many of the rich and famous come to vacation. She is actually in hiding from her real self, a mother who ran a stop sign and killed her young daughter in the accident. The resulting publicity destroyed her marriage to Edward Cooper, so she has changed her name and run to Devon as her haven. The action increases when Edward comes to Devon, intent on starting a new business there and running The Inn, since he has become the new owner. This is the main story line. There are many others, like the mom who won’t tell her son who his father is and the son who is subsequently arrested for hacking. The whole story has one theme, that of reconciliation. I had to keep reading to find out what happens with Maggie and Edward; it was such a great and satisfying book! The ending was a surprise, one that you won’t see coming. The events of the story were so realistic and soul-stirring that it made me want to make sure that all of my relationships are straight and that there is nothing between me and those I love.
