I spent a delightful afternoon reading this wonderful story! The characters were realistic and engaging, the plot excellent. Yes, I shed a few tears, laughed and was sad when the story ended. I came away from this story with a grin on my face and a warmth in my heart that comes from reading a really good romance book (5 stars). Thank you Mrs. Macomber!

I received this book for free. A favorable review was not required and all views expressed are my own. Thank you to Ballantine Books and Ms. Macomber for the opportunity to read and review this book. ( )

Julia has been divorced for about six years. She tried hard to save her marriage, but it was not to be. Her two daughters are estranged from their father, taking their mother’s side in the divorce proceedings, and wanting nothing to do with their father’s new wife. Now one of the daughters is getting married, and this leads to a whole new set of problems. Adding to the mix is the wonderful new man in Julia’s life. How all this fits together, and how it all resolves makes for one highly entertaining tale. Debbie Macomber never disappoints her readers, but this story is especially delightful. It has a major twist in it that was surprising, and adds much interest to the novel. It goes without saying that the writing is superb and the characters are real and well developed. The title says it all: it IS better this way! Highly recommended. ( )

It’s Better This Way by Debbie Macomber has Julia Jones meeting Heath Wilson in the exercise room of her building six years after her divorce. They start out as friends since both have had disastrous dates since their marriages ended. As time passes, Julia and Heath fall in love. An astonishing discovery threatens to ruin their bright future. It’s Better This Way is well-written (as always) with realistic characters. The story moves along at a good pace. I liked that the Heath and Julia are older protagonists. I thought they were realistic characters especially with regard to their emotions. A family situation has emotions running high as well as tension. The situations were representative of real-life, but I did find it to be predictable. I loved the side story involving Julia’s niece, Carrie and building resident, Eric. I would have liked that to be its own separate story (maybe a short e-book). Carrie was a great character and I wanted to get to know her more along with Eric. I appreciated the epilogue that nicely wrapped up It’s Better This Way. You get to see why when things work out a certain way that “It’s better this way”. I was surprised to discover that there is some mild foul language in the story. This is something that I never thought I would see in a book by Debbie Macomber. I enjoyed the descriptions of Seattle especially of the building where Julia and Heath resided. It’s Better This Way is a sweet, feel good tale. It is perfect for summer when you are looking for lighter fare to read. ( )

Debbie Macomber’s books are always enjoyable. Great character, great storylines and little twists. This book is no different! A perfect book for vacation or staycation. You become totally immersed in Julie’s life. I love reading about more mature characters, strong and independent in their own right, not looking for someone to complete them. Julie and Heath are instantly likable and relatable. Even, the odd set of circumstances they find themselves in. Both are navigating how to have a personal relationship without grown children interfering while also being there for them as parents. Fairly predictable, but enjoyable all the same. A great reading escape.

Julie is semi-retired from a successful design company built from the ground up, and well past her devastating divorce. She’s enjoying her life, her two grown daughters, and loving her new condo. She meets Heath, divorced with two sons, by chance at the gym. One thing leads to another and they find a spark. All is going well, until an unexpected and uncomfortable situation arises that could tear them apart. Are they parents first…or should this relationship special enough to put first?

Thanks to Ms. Macomber, Ballantine Books and NetGalley for this ARC. Opinion is mine alone. ( )

I really enjoyed this book, from beginning to end the pages flew for me, just sad when the last page was turned.
You get to see both sides of a divorce, even with the children’s point of view, and no one is exempt.
The author did a great job with bringing out each of those affected point of view, and with a lot of twist and turns, and some unbelievable happenings, just the right place at the right time. Sometimes life is stranger than fiction.
Be ready for a few chuckles and some tears, and becoming totally engrossed in this story!
I received this book through Net Galley and Random House Publishing Group-Ballantine, and was not required to give a positive review. ( )
