Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The citizens of Henry Adams are starting to take bets—will Lily Fontaine and Trent July finally tie the knot?

All they want is a nice, simple wedding, but their well-meaning neighbors are turning the no-fuss affair into the event of the decade. Bernadine, the town's fairy godmother, wants Lily to have a storybook wedding fit for a princess, and Lily's nine-year-old foster son is campaigning to be town preacher so he can officiate at the ceremony. Trouble multiplies when Trent is called on to help a new family move to town, not to mention Lily and Trent's task of blending their families together.

With the bustle of the tight-knit, and often tightly wound, friends and family pushing them to the breaking point, the couple begins to wish they'd eloped. But, as they'll soon be reminded, happiness in Henry Adams is meant to be shared.

I was so eager to read Beverly Jenkins latest novel "Something Old, Something New: A Blessings Novel". Once again Beverly hit it out the ballpark with this novel.
I got up and awaited my pre-order download, got a glass of lemonade and sat for the next two hours in bliss!
I smiled, laughed, and cried while reading. I enjoyed both my fave from the other Blessings series and enjoyed the new.
Since this book came out today, I won't placed any spoilers. But Beverly added the right mix of events leading up to Trent and Lily's wedding with some twist along the way.
I will read this one again and again (like I do all of Beverly's books)! If you are a Beverly Jenkins fans or someone who just love to read a well written novel, this is the book for you!

This is the best series I have ever read and I have read hundreds of books. You have to start with Book one "Bring on the Blessings" Then two "A Second Helping" I have never laughed until I cried and cried until I laughed in the same book so much. Finish it up with this one and wait anxiously for part four next year. She transports me to Kansas in a way no author has done before in any story. I read the first book in four days, the second in two days and this one just came out today and I'm half way done. Love It!!!

According to Goodreads, this is the third book in a series. I honestly had no idea there were two others before this one. I definitely don't feel like I missed any parts of the series and that this book was a great stand alone book.

This was one of those feel good type books. Being that I grew up and lived (and still do) in the city, it was an interesting take reading a story about characters who lived in a town so tiny they were all practically family. Some of it felt implausible but I wonder if it's just due to my lack of small town experiences.

The characters were well developed, but the one who definitely tugged at my heartstrings was Devon. Some of the scenes involving him were so emotional (in both the good and bad) that I shed a few tears.

I definitely enjoyed this book!

I received this book via Goodreads First Reads.

I have been counting down the days until "Something Old, Something New ". I couldn't wait to get back to Henry Adams. It was SO WORTH THE WAIT!!!! I started reading it as soon as I downloaded it and finished it in a day. I cried. I laughed. I am changed. It was over too soon. I can't wait for the next one.

Beverly Jenkins produces AGAIN!! READ THIS SERIES!!!

Something Old, Something New was well worth its anticipated release. This book is awesome, and by far, the best in the series. It is filled with poignant & tear-jerker moments as well as hysterically funny moments. And then there are those trademark Black history moments, for which no one writes and incorporates it into novels better than Beverly Jenkins. The core characters are being revealed layer-by-layer, and the title itself has meaning in many more lives than just Lily's & Trent's. If you've not read the previous two books in the Blessings series, do it now. If you have read the other two, read this one---again & again.

As a late comer to this series, I am so happy that I found it. This third book was just simply amazing. You can't help but fall more in love with the town Henry Adams and its people. I liked how this book focused more on Devon, and Amari & Trent's relationship. When Devon went back to Mississippi I found myself tearing up throughout those chapters. The rejection that he felt was just heart shattering. It was great to see him finally start to behave like a child and experience things children do AND wear! Amari really turned out to be the opposite of what I thought he was going to be. This started happening in the second book, but really materialized in this book. That really is a very special boy. Wow, all I can say is I can't wait for the 4th book to see what happens with Preston, he really deserves some closure as the other children have received. I'd also love to read more about Bernadine & Mal's relationship since we really haven't read that much about them together so far. Great job Beverly Jenkins!

I LOVED "Something Old, Something New" The wait for part three of the BOB series was well worth it. I think I cried more in this book than the other 2 but I always laugh. I loved when Genevieve knocked Riley out I laughed so hard. The book brought bak so many good memories. I read the book in one day I even told all my reading friends they have to buy or downlaod the bok. Great job Ms. Beverly keep up the good writing.

I have read all of Beverly Jenkins books and I can honestly say that I've enjoyed every one of them. Ms. Jenkins is a great storyteller and an awesome teacher. There is a flow to her writing that makes the pages just fly by. The Blessings series is very special because of the premise of the books which is to take a broke down, beat up town and turn it into a utopia, a refuge for those in need of healing. What I really liked the most about this third installment was Trent and Lily's relationship. I loved the way they partnered each other, the way they parented their children, and the way they compromised when it came time to figure out how to bring their two households together. All of the books are truly heartwarming, but this one was pure joy to me. It was so wonderful to put my feet up, grab a cup of tea, and escape into the world of Henry Adams again. And I am especially pleased that now Beverly Jenkins is coming to the attention of not only the romance world, but she's taking her rightful place amongst writers of all kinds. Excellent writing, amazing book!!
