Welcome to The Ludzecky Sisters, a brand new contemporary romance series from NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author Kathryn Shay. These six beautiful blond sisters try to make their way in the world after a tragedy strikes their family. Each book has a cameo appearance by one of the sexy heroes from Shay's beloved O'Neil series.

BEGIN AGAIN tells the story of Paulina Ludzecky who, since her husband died three years ago, runs a contracting business with her twin, Antonia. She's ready to dip her toes in romance, when she meets Adam Armstrong, the architect on the new music hall her company is building.
For Adam, opposites attract and he's drawn to this no-nonsense, down-to-earth girl next door. She's equally interested in him though he's too different from her to settle down with. But alpha male Adam has other plans for Paulina and isn't about to let her go, even when Paulina has trouble with committing to him. Sex, yes! Love, no! This second chance at love story will tug on your heartstrings.

If you like sisters in love stories, New York City romances and family saga romances, try the rest of the books in The Ludzecky Sisters: PRIMARY COLORS, RISKY BUSINESS, THE WAY WE WERE, HANDLE WITH CARE and LOVE STORY.

Praise for Kathryn Shay romance novels:
"Kathryn Shay writes some of the cleanest prose around, and it's my belief she'd make the Yellow Pages sound interesting if the phone company put her on staff. And Ms. Shay knows her way around a steamy love scene." The Romance Reader

This is the first book in Kathryn Shay's Ludzecky Sisters series. It is a great start to a great series. Paulina is ready to start dating now after three years of mourning the death of her husband. How does one do that after being with your husband since you were a teenager? Adam Armstrong was the designer on a job that Paulina's construction crew was working on. The two couldn't be more different. He was from a wealthy family, refined and always well groomed. Paulina's family was working class, rough around the edges and she had callouses and dirt on her hands most days, but the attraction was there from the beginning. I'm definitely looking forward to reading more books in this series. I was given an ARC for an honest review. All conclusions are mine and mine alone.

Healing and moving forward... Tragedy strikes a family with the loss of twin husbands to twins Pauline and Antonia... they have the support of their close family and each deals with grief in their own way and time. This book focuses mostly on Pauline. She meets Adam and there is an attraction that grows between them, but she does not want anything serious right now. Will she be ready to open her heart again? Will their differences keep them apart? I loved the banter between the characters! Enjoyed seeing each characters' growth... a family that comes together and a woman that gives herself a chance to move on. Overall a wonderful read that I enjoyed. Curious about the other sisters' stories! *a copy was gifted in exchange for an honest review.

Finding Strength to Begin Again With Love's Help! I received an ARC eBook in exchange for an honest review. I know why Kathryn Shay is a best selling author! Her books transports the reader on an exhilarating roller coaster of emotion and hope! I loved this first book in The Ludzecky Sisters series. Pauline and Adam's story melted my heart. It's a story that many people can identify with - how to begin again after tragedy. Whether that tragedy is death, divorce or a heartbreaking break up, it can sometimes be daunting 'sto start over. I can't wait to read more of this FANTASTIC series!! Kathryn Shay is definitely a MUST-READ Author for me!

Loved the story. It was very heart felt. I would have liked a complete closure to the ending with Paulina and Adam.

I liked Paulina and loved how she's in the construction business, but I couldn't stand Adam. He was rude and stuck up in the beginning especially about how different they are, yet when Paulina uses that as an excuse one time he constantly brings it up as if it's only her issue. I also didn't like all of the POV's from the other characters, it seemed pointless to me.

A great start to a new series by Kathryn Shay. Wow, six blond sisters in one family and they all get their own book. This is the story Of Paulina Ludzecky, who lost her husband tragically three years ago and is ready to move on in life, she thinks. She meets Adam Armstong , an architect, very rich. They are complete opposites, but the one thing they have in common is their attraction for each other. The beginning of the story was a little confusing, but what big family is not confusing. Lots of people to meet right away. I really enjoyed how close the sisters are to each other. It was great to see Paulina, work through her grief and begin to live again, she married very young. I highly recommend this book to all readers that love romance and family saga. I am now off to read the next book, Primary Colors.
