"The finale to the Treading Water trilogy was an enchanting lesson in ensuring a low point in your life doesn't define the person you become. It is wonderfully written with characters that envelope you in their world. This book is an excellent ending to a series of books that truly pulled at my heartstrings." ―Night Owl Reviews, A Reviewer Top Pick

I can honestly say that Brandon stole my heart in this book and I think might hold onto it for a while. I tend to be a woman who always went after the man who needed to be "saved". So in Starting Over I found myself feeling so bad for Valerie, Brandon's ex, who put so much of herself into the relationship with a man who was lost. The book starts out with a lot of heavy baggage and as the book goes on, we are able to join Brandon on his road to recovery, shedding the pain and resentment along the way.
I wanted so bad for Brandon to find his HEA, to find someone who would accept him fully, as is, and Daphne was just the person for the job, even tho she tried her hardest to stay away. But when your five year old daughter falls for a man who looks like him...ummm yummy, how can your defenses not be lowered.
Marie Force created an amazing story with Starting Over that gives us hope that no one is ever lost, they just need someone to care enough to find them.
This book is more than a love story- more than that, I loved watching Brandon in his recovery, making his amends, and truly learning so much. I loved Colin and how he understood that alcoholism is a family disease and that it affected everyone.
The rest of the O'Malleys are what you would expect from a large, Irish Catholic family! I loved them!
I was so looking forward to this 3rd offering and it blew me away. Marie Force manages to give us greedy readers such an emotional reading experience. She definitely does her homework in each of her books and I've read ALL her books except the 'Fatal' series which I'm saving for a tour de FORCE (pun intended) during a long weekend of reading enjoyment.
Brandon will simply steal your heart. He is flawed. He is a good man. Every new character in this book is so well written and indepth in personality. MIKE....she'll steal your heart, as well.
All the characters in their recurring roles will become beloved. They have to me and I'm so glad to see how they all evolve in this final offering of the Treading Water Trilogy.
I cannot recommend this book more highly and do read the whole trilogy in order. It gets no better than Marie Force offers us. She's a GREAT writer.
I hope she keeps on with writing and look forward to what is next. More trilogys would be very welcome to me and whatever she writes I'll read like a chocoholic in a candy store.
Thank you Marie. This is a book I'll re-read for years to come and the whole trilogy is one I cherish. It's in the top 2 percent of my favorites and I've read thousands of this genre of stories.
I loved the way the epilogue was written and how far along in the future it was. Yet, it was perfect for this story. I also really enjoyed how the relationships of the other characters were followed, how the author linked them to the other books while still making this book mainly about Brandon.
Kudos to the author for such a heartwarming and truly moving and accurate novel. A great addition to this series.
