    4.5 starsEvvie Drakes Starts Over is a highly entertaining, occasionally heartbreaking, and always engrossing tale that has stayed with me long after I finished it The book is set in a small town in Maine and tells the story of Evvie Drake and Dean Tenney, two very different individuals who are hurting and need help recovering from their own personal traumas Evvie s husband, a prominent doctor in their small town, died the year before on the day Evvie was planning to leave him Intensely private, Evvie had told no one, not even her father or best friend, that she planned to leave her husband for reasons that slowly unfold as the book progresses She struggles to move on because she is paralyzed with guilt and shame Dean Tenney is a famous Yankees baseball player whose ability to pitch has suddenly failed him causing a spectacular career meltdown Needing to getaway and out of the spotlight, Dean rents the garage apartment attached to Evvie s house, and the two slowly begin to share their stories with each other.The strength and importance of human connection and relationships is at the core of Evvie Drake Starts Over together with a fun romantic element and the impact of time on friendships In the vein of A Man C...
