Evvie Drake Starts Over was a wonderful and quick summer read. Evvie is packing up to leave her husband when she learns that he has died in a car crash. Dean, a pitcher for the Yankees, can suddenly no longer pitch and comes to live in Evvie’s basement. While the story doesn’t provide much mystery, it’s well-written and an enjoyable read. And, it takes place in mid-boast Maine, which means the backdrop is one that I love. It’s perfect for a day at the beach.
