Never Too Late JustRead Blog + Review Tour

Welcome to the Blog + Review Tour for Never Too Late by Susan L. Tuttle, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!


Never Too Late Title: Never Too Late Series: Along Came Love #3 Author: Susan L. Tuttle Publisher: Iron Stream Media Release Date: November 2, 2021 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.

Never Too Late is the third book in Susan L. Tuttle’s Along Came Love series. This contemporary romance features Rachel Stark, who we’ve met in the previous two books. Now the widow is facing an empty nest and an uncertain future. She decides to help her best friend, Evan Wayne, who is recovering from a gunshot wound. As they help each other on a community project, their friendship takes a romantic turn.

Never Too Late is a romance with a side of mystery. Since the story features coming to the aid of the parents of kidnapped and missing children, it has a painful side. Especially since Rachel has lost a child of her own. That makes this story more intense than the past stories in the series. The realness, however, made me root for Evan and Rachel and hope they could both find a future happiness together.

My favorite part of the story is the language of flowers that Rachel delves into with her painting. I absolutely love how the author interweaves that with Rachel’s community project. And the romance.

Though Never Too Late is part of a series, you don’t need to read the past two books in order to enjoy this one. However, the past two were great reads, so I’d recommend the whole series!

  1. I think being an artist and being a mother would be fine on a resume! This sounds like a very nice romance!
