But lately I feel like I'm on a ride all of the time. I made myself get on this big coaster called life. I'm sure it will turn me upside down and inside out but I also have a feeling I'll have a smile after the first drop.
My new book, The New Ever After, is here. It's here for you to read and love. It's a book about life and some of the struggles that face moms...all moms. We all feel pressures from different things. Some of us work, some stay at home. Some have one child others have five. Some of us count every calorie and others eat every last bite of the chocolate cake. But we all have love and sometimes love makes us crazy and makes us do crazy things.
My editor and I have worked harder than I could have ever imagined to bring you this book. I've written. She's dissected. We've spent countless summer hours working toward this day and it's scary to hand something over to the world. Something that you've worked so hard on. But that's the ride I've chosen to get on.
My new book is about life. It's about friends. It's about being a mom and not always being perfect. It's about love. And it's about living life to the fullest because you never know when it's going to disappear....

My Book Review:
In The New Ever After, the sequel to Tripped Up Love, the story continues with widow Heather Meadows marrying famous author Peter Adamson, and their family grows from three to five children with the birth of twins. The reader follows along as Heather and Peter adjust to married life with kids while trying to balance their writing careers with the daily family struggles that life brings. As Heather works through the challenges, she encounters dramatic events that will test her closest relationships that will make her realize that she has to learn to enjoy every moment and live life to the fullest.
The New Ever After is a wonderful sequel that easily draws the reader back into Heather and Peter's life as their second chance at love takes on a new meaning when their whirlwind romance turns into a marriage with an instant family and daily responsibilities.
Author Julie Farley infuses humor, drama, and romance into a delightful story that depicts the realities of the day-to-day struggle to balance marriage, family and career. The continuation of their story flowed seamlessly, it was easy to follow and relate to what goes on daily in a marriage/family. There are unexpected twists and turns that keeps the reader in suspense and turning the pages. I enjoyed the depth of emotion, love, and devotion that Heather and Peter have for each other, it's the kind of love that not a lot of people get to experience in their lives. I loved the thoughtful message that the story provides to the readers: life is too short to sweat the small stuff, so go with the flow and enjoy every moment to the fullest. I look forward to reading the next installment in The New Ever After series.
The New Ever After is a heartwarming love story about real life with all its trials and tribulations, and how the happily ever after is so worth having in one's life.
RATING: 4 STARS ****
