This week I'm reviewing...

Here's the synopsis:

Julia Merina always thought her life would be simple - go to college, meet Mr. Right, find her dream job, and live happily ever after. But just shy of 25, she learns the hard way that life rarely goes according to plan. 

Now, at age 28, Julia’s life revolves around her three year old son, Carson, her career at Oceanic Marketing, and her supportive family. After the turbulent years of her early 20s, Julia resolved to never trust a man again. That is until Drew Parkington, an old classmate, suddenly comes back into her life. 

Julia is forced to examine her life and decide if she can let go of the past and learn to trust again.

Here are my thoughts:

I find it to be a rarity that an author's first novel is well written and easily to read.  DK Hamilton hit the nail on the head with her debut novel.  The Other Side of Later follows single mother Julia Merina, whose life hasn't gone at all the way she'd planned.

Julia is a hard working, stubborn character, but so likable at the same time.  Drew Parkington is swoon worthy.  And Carson is just insanely adorable.

There were two main twists in this book- one of which I saw coming and the other I didn't.  Of course, I'm not giving any spoilers here, so you'll just have to jump to goodreads and add this one to your list.
