Clare Wilson is starting over. She's had it with her marriage to a charming serial cheater. Even her own son thinks she's given his father too many chances. With the support of her sisters, Maggie and Sarah, she's ready to move on. Facing her 40th birthday, Clare is finally feeling the rush of unadulterated freedom.
But when a near-fatal car accident lands Clare in the hospital, her life takes another detour. While recovering, Clare realizes she has the power to choose her life's path. The wonderful younger police officer who witnessed her crash is over the moon for her. A man from her past stirs up long-buried feelings. Even her ex is pining for her.

15 Years Too Late

I am a huge Robyn Carr fan, which makes me feel guilty about writing a less-than-positive review of Never Too Late.

The huge negative factor for me was the main character Claire, who was a whimpy 39 year old woman. Claire stayed with husband Roger for 16 years, roughly 15 years after the 1st time he had cheated on her. When Claire finally filed for divorce after their 5th separation, she instantly has several men trying to date her...why? Martyrs just aren't that interesting.

Claire doesn't hold a fulltime job, refering to herself as a housewife, as if she was married to a building. Claire was an attractive, educated woman with a close family, a healthy teenage son and financial security, yet did almost nothing positive with her blessings. If she didn't need to earn a salary, at least she could have volunteered to help those less fortunate.

While I appeciated the message "it's never too late to improve your life", I didn't relate to Claire, although she almost got me when she started to rehab an old house. If Claire had stayed with Roger because she was hopelessly in love, financially dependent or needed help with childcare, it would have been somewhat understandable. Sadly, Claire just seemed too immature and lazy.

I did enjoy her sisters Maggie & Sarah, some humorous scenes, the perils of raising teens, the scenic small town setting and an excellent narration. The last half of the book got better and ended with a satisfying conclusion.

- Rusty "Good Books Don't Promote Violence"

A bit too sexually graphic for me

This book at several sections of five and more minutes of graphic sexual encounters which kept me from listening to the entire book. They were also storylines with a 14-year-old having sex a 15-year-old having sex and having a pregnancy scare and a couple of illegitimate babies along the way. This information was not in the description or I would not have purchased the book. Just not my kind of thing! Will not buy any more books by this author
