"I am completely smitten with Something New: it's endearing, romantic, and utterly satisfying, with characters so well-developed they feel like old friends. Maeve steals the show, but I missed them all when I reached the end. Highly recommended for mothers, daughters, granddaughters, and sisters." -Jess Riley, author of Driving Sideways
"Utterly charming, romantic, and and beautifully written, Something New is the story of three generations of mothers and daughters struggling to define their relationships and to ultimately find their own place in the world. I absolutely loved it!" -Maria Geraci, author of A Girl Like You
What if you were sure you lived a different life?
Three generations of women. Four secrets. One stage.
When matriarch Maeve Apple receives a letter in the mail that Princess & the Pauper is being remade, she believes she's 25 again and ready to relive her stardom. Meanwhile, her daughter Bess is dealing with her mother's dementia, her own divorce and planning her youngest daughter's wedding - on the Luxe Weddings reality show.
Bess' eldest daughter, Kelly, has a secret of her own that could threaten her chance at love again.
Curvy Gwen, the youngest, may be the star of Luxe Weddings, but she finds her heart belongs on the stage, attracted by the lights and her co-star, as they search for Maeve's long-lost pauper and the biggest secret of all.
Told in alternating points of view, Something New explores the bonds of family, love and making memories we'll never forget.
