Format: Paperback
Rose Parker opens a bank statement for the first time in years and finds huge amounts of money missing. When questioning her husband she learns so much more than what happen to that money. Her life is shattered and she moves out on her husband. She moves in with Becky, an acquaintance from her gardening class, and her life takes a new turn. As she struggles with her new life, she is determined not to let the past haunt her.

The best part of this story is how uplifting it is. Although it starts rough, with a wife leaving her husband after finding out their marriage has been full of deceit, the story quickly turns into a positive story. The story of a woman who when faced with a rough road decides to pick herself up and make her life so much better. She has her days of grieving and beating herself up, but overall she understands that she is strong enough to overcome this. A huge part of her overcoming is the support of her new best friend Becky, who has a history of a failed marriage and can relate to what Rose is going through, and Rose's mother, who steps up with 100% support without ever doubting that Rose will succeed in moving past her failed marriage. Scott, Becky's brother, and Adam, Scott's best friend, are also huge supporters of Rose even though they did not know Rose before she moved in with Becky.

I have to say that Scott is probably my most favorite character in this book. Every book needs some hot and studly men. Not only did he step to the plate and help Rose in any way she needed but he was just there. There when she just needed someone to talk to. There when she just needs someone to sit with her. There when she needs someone to get her out of the house. Scott also knew when to step back and not be there.

I had a hard time putting this book down once I picked it up! It is very funny, heartwarming and passionate. Even if you have never gone through a divorce, you can relate to discovering that someone you love was not the person you thought he was. Rose takes the necessary time to wallow in her husband's deceit, drinks enough alcohol to power a rocket ship (you'll understand the need once you read about her husband) and slowly puts her life back together. You will laugh out loud often, tear up at the tender moments and enjoy the very steamy relationship between Rose and her new found friend Becky's brother. This is a fun and inspiring story for anyone who feels lost in some aspect of their lives. Highly recommend!

I very rarely stop reading a book until the end. I couldn't help it on this one. Rose's situation grabbed me immediately and then led me down an extremely tedious path...I found Rose's journey, for the time I traveled with her, boring.

I was lucky to get an ARC of this book and count myself blessed to have been so fortunate to read this book ahead of time. I read A LOT as anyone who knows me can attest to and this book was definitely a great addition to my library. I loved Rose and her undeniable ability to keep going and find herself and her happiness despite many obstacles! Every woman today can definitely identify with someone like this and I really recommend this book from the bottom of my own redesigned self.

I absolutely loved Redesigning Rose. I really loved her characters because they are realistic and so true to life. I identified most with her friend Becky who is loveable and who has a bit of a "past" herself. I hope she ends up writing a novel on Becky as well. I'd be first in line for that one. Overall, Redesigning Rose gave me some laughs, some heartache and was completely charmed by the realistic storyline which was refreshing rather than the regular rich hero who saves the damsel type of story.

When Rose unexpectedly stumbles upon a big lie told by her husband Frank, she begins searching for clues. What else might he be hiding?

And when she discovers the extent of his deception, she is sick with fear about how she has missed the signs all these years.

Packed up and fleeing the house, she has no plan. Where is she going? How will she manage on her own?

It was easy to connect with Rose's panic and to worry a little about how she would fare. So when she serendipitously meets up with a friend from her gardening club, who offers her a place to stay until she figures things out, I felt relieved. Betsy has some issues left over from her marriage, too, and as we learn more, it is evident that both women are struggling to make better choices.

It took sheer guts for Rose to make this bold move...and because her "Frank habit" was long-standing, she was tempted to go back. More than once. Thinking she could change him...or he would change. The struggle to change was realistic, since nobody can learn new behaviors without a few stumbles.

In the aftermath, Rose's journey to building a new life felt real and like something that could actually happen. Her friends and her mother were supportive, and she slowly begins making better choices for her life. As she flounders in a new relationship, it was encouraging to see how she spotted the red flags sooner. Like in real life, stumbling, falling, and then changing.

Redesigning Rose was an engaging read, recommended for those who enjoy books about relationships and issues. 4.0 stars.
