Author: Susan L. Tuttle
Publisher: Iron Stream Media

Genre: Inspirational Contemporary Romance
Once, her art brought her fame. This time will it bring her love?
Widowed homemaker Rachael Stark isn’t quite sure what comes after her only child leaves for college. To fill her suddenly quiet hours and scrawny bank account, she needs a job. But painful memories prevent her from resurrecting her former art career, and motherhood isn’t much of a résumé. When her best friend needs help recovering from a gunshot wound that occurred in the line of duty, she is there. Finally, someone to take care of.
Evan Wayne won’t let his injury keep him from being a police officer. His dedication to protect the innocent stems from the guilt he carries over having failed his childhood friend. What he needs now is to recover and get back on the streets. Instead, he’s handed a myriad of light-duty tasks by his captain―one of which involves heading up the department’s entry into the town’s annual mural contest. He’s not an artist, but he definitely knows one. And he’ll take any excuse to spend more time with her.
When Rachael agrees to paint for Evan, she never expects to also be drawn into finding answers for the mother of a missing child. As the two friends work side by side on the mural and the case, their feelings move beyond friendship. But with Evan unwilling to leave his dangerous job, and Rachael unwilling to risk another loss of a loved one, their fears may paint over the promise of a beautiful future together.

IN MY OPINION
I wasn’t expecting this book to be so emotional, but it was. In all the right ways. In Never Too Late, Susan L. Tuttle sets moments of heartache right alongside some more light-hearted ones and it is beautiful.
Tuttle tackles the subject of grieving the loss of a loved one—no matter if they are friend or family, if you lost them to death or another way, the grief is always under the surface. But what Never Too Late does is show that there is hope for joy and fullness of life in spite of the tragedies once has faced.
Even though I knew what Rachael and Evan were going to do pretty much the moment they made their big decision, I didn’t mind. Why? Because these two have such a solid friendship (including the witty banter) and they were so perfect for each other, I was there cheering them on.
This is a beautiful story about overcoming fear, finding your joy, and living your fullest life.
