Contemporary Romance Book Review: Something Old, Something New
About the Book
Publisher's Book Description
Something Old, Something New, by Amy Clipston, is a charming contemporary story full of heartwarming scenes and plenty of sweet romance. From beginning to end, this novel offers a satisfying blend of drama, emotion, and small town whimsy. With characters who are authentic and vulnerable, and a setting that is altogether engaging, this book is truly enjoyable. Featuring relevant themes of family, forgiveness, and second chances, this novel is genuinely touching and thoughtful.
A small town in North Carolina is the ideal setting for a story that shines with good friends, family dinners, and Friday night football games. A cheery antique shop that is also home to two fluffy cats is the opportune place for many important scenes. Add a house that is under renovation, and there are several meaningful spaces from which the story can easily unfold.
The appealing characters in this book are also quite special. Though they experience heartache and uncertainty, they dare to take risks, share their vulnerabilities, and overcome their insecurities. With honesty, perseverance, and courage, they endeavor to heal from hurt and rejection as they pursue wholeness and acceptance. They learn the value of honesty, generosity, and trust as they pursue their hearts’ desires.
Ms. Clipston has succeeded once again in writing a story that is uplifting and very entertaining. Something Old, Something New is certainly memorable and inspiring. It is a novel that is delightfully worthwhile, and I gladly recommend it.
