Evvie Drake Starts Over by Linda Holmes

I’ve been following Jenna Bush Hager and her book club picks. Evvie Drake Starts Over is one of her more recent ones. It’s so popular I had to wait a month or so to get it from the library.

Evvie lives in Maine and is able to escape an abusive marriage only because her husband was killed in a car accident. Her struggle to start over and find a new life is rough even after baseball player, Dean appears in the small town. He developed the yips so he’s also looking for a way to start over. Their romance takes over the story here.

Evvie Drake is a very fast read. Not much depth to the characters, the setting or anything else. I liked all the Maine parts and especially the lobsta but even that didn’t always ring true to me. If you want a quick light summer love story, this one will fill the bill. If you’re looking for something with more depth, look elsewhere. I give it a three star rating.
