In my experience, books later on in a series tend to kind of fizzle out. I can count on one hand how many times I have given a 5-star rating to the 3rd book in a series. Life Rewritten is among those elite few. Be warned, have tissues nearby. This book is going to make you cry. I wasn’t expecting it and had to go scrounging for tissues. There are some pretty emotional scenes that will rip your heart out and put it back in. The author did a fantastic job of showcasing how hard alcohol/drug addiction recovery is. You can never say that you were an addict or an alcoholic. You always are one. The fight to stay clean/sober is often exhausting. It was showcased beautifully here. I knew that Delaney was hiding something but I wasn’t prepared to find out that she was a rock star in her former life. I was floored. Other than her singing and playing the drums, there were no clues about her past. From what was discussed in the book, Delaney’s alter ego wasn’t a very nice person when she was a rock star. Again, such a difference from the woman that I had grown to like through reading the series. I felt for Sam. To assume guardianship of two young children when you don’t have any of your own is hard. Even harder is that those kids were damaged. I understood why he wanted those CDs. He was trying to protect the kids. I felt for Rennie and Leo. Their mother was mentally unstable and an addict. Their father died in from an overdose. They were placed with their uncle, who they barely knew. Then they were uprooted and brought to Wisconsin. It had to of been terrifying for them. I wanted to reach through the book and hug them. When the press found out where Delaney had been hiding, she was pissed. She had every right to be. She worked hard to keep her identity hidden. I was so mad at Jen and Maddie for their reactions. That almost sent her over the brink. Almost. The sex scenes in Life Rewritten were emotional. Both Delaney and Sam didn’t want to fall for each other. Their sex scenes reflected that. They were some of the best-written scenes that I have read to date. Not explicit but graphic enough to know what was going on. The end of Life Rewritten was satisfying. I have never said that about the ending of a book before. I am not going to go into what exactly happened but I was thrilled with how it turned out. Let’s say that Delaney deserved it.

The Real Delaney... Here we get to see Delaney's story and boy did she have a tale to share! Wanting to move on from her past, she has worked hard on being a better person... but see what happens when her past finds her! I loved Diesel's kids, wonderful secondary characters that bring this book to life... enjoyed seeing Sam grow and become a parent... I really like books that bring real issues to light and make you feel something for the characters and their story... an enjoyable read!

This series keeps getting better and better. Ms. Watson has such a way with writing that you are almost laughing out loud on one page and ready to cry on the next. Delaney Spencer is such a strong female character, yet so vulnerable. She has made amends for her past life as a rock singer and now lives a quiet life in Otter Tail, Wisconsin. She avoids the limelight, plays in a small band at the local pub on the weekends and does her creative carpentry. Delaney knows that if the media finds out that she used to be Chantal that her private life will be over. Along comes Sam McCabe who will dredge up her past in order to provide for his brother’s children. Sam’s deceased brother is part of Delaney’s past. Ms. Watson is especially wonderful with her children characters…Leo who is protective of his younger sister yet a little hardened by the ups and downs of his life…Rennie who is just so endearing and still blessedly unware of the turn her life has taken. Add the cute abandoned puppy and this is a book that was hard to put down…so I didn’t, I read it straight through. Delaney, Leo and Rennie will show Sam that money cannot buy love and love is so well worth the lesson. I received a free copy of this book and voluntarily chose to give an honest review.

Following the drug death of her lover and Redhead band member Diesel, Delaney Spencer has reinvented her life. She is no longer rock star Chantal and has become a carpenter in Otter Tail, Wisconsin. Delaney has become a good member of the community and actually still performs with a local band. Diesel's brother Sam McCabe has located Chantal. He arrives in Wisconsin demanding she give him the recordings she and his late sibling made just before he died to secure the future for Diesel's two children, Leo and Rennie. He is their guardian since their mom Heather is incapable of caring for them. When she hesitates, frustrated by her and his desire for her, he accuses her of killing his sibling by hooking him to the drugs; which she denies. Still Delaney must decide whether to continue to hide from celebrity status or take a chance that her alcoholism is under control. Life Rewritten is a strong family drama starring individuals tied together by their grief for a deceased loved one. The cast is strong. The kids feel frightened and abandoned; Sam is filled with anger and survivor guilt; and Delaney is a recovering alcoholic who logically knows she did not turn Diesel into an addict as he was a user before they met, but feels illogical guilt by not intervening to stop him. This is a winner as even Fluffy the dog has real flaws (and not just the gas). Harriet Klausner
