Book News: Can We Start Again? by Shirley Benton

Irish author Shirley Benton is back with her second novel this summer, and what a gorgeous cover it has too. Can We Start Again? is due out on 5th July (and well done to Poolbeg for finally bringing out Kindle books!), and is one I will be looking out for - it sounds great!

"Is it ever too late for a second chance?

Tammy and Alvin had mapped out their entire lives together, including a pre-parental plan – a list of everything they wanted to do as a couple before they have children. But no amount of planning could have anticipated the heartbreaking problems that lay ahead of them – problems that shattered their once-perfect relationship and led to a traumatic break-up.

After years of trying to move on, Tammy’s world is turned upside down when Alvin comes back into her life asking for a second chance – with a difference. He proposes that they spend time together, doing the challenging activities they had once so eagerly planned, in a bid to remember why they felt they'd have children together some day, and ultimately recapture what they had.

Still in love with Alvin, Tammy finds herself powerless to say no even though their problems are still simmering in the background and threatening to boil over at any moment. Still, what they once had is surely worth trying to save?

But can something that’s broken ever truly be whole again?"

You can pre-order Can We Start Again? as a paperback or an eBook now.
