With the support of her sisters, Maggie and Sarah, she’s ready to move on. Facing her fortieth birthday, Clare is finally feeling the rush of unadulterated freedom.
But when a near-fatal car accident lands Clare in the hospital, her life takes another detour. While recovering, Clare realizes she has the power to choose her life’s path. The wonderful younger police officer who witnessed her crash is over the moon for her. A man from her past stirs up long-buried feelings. Even her ex is pining for her.

AWRW Book Review
Never Too Late is a women’s fiction with a second-chance romance subplot, by Author Robyn Carr. It follows three sisters, but the star of the show is definitely Clare, recovering from an auto accident, facing divorce from her serial cheater husband, and practically beating men off with a stick–all under her sisters’ watchful eyes.
I enjoyed this story and I especially liked the sibling dynamic between Clare, Maggie, and Sarah. Clare’s sisters, while sometimes a tad envious, were still supportive and loving, often handling tough situations with humor. I liked how this book branched out from Clare to their lives too. Sarah’s backstory was fascinating.
In addition to the bond between sisters, Robyn Carr explores the relationships between mothers and their children, and husbands and wives. There is a strong family theme in Never Too Late, classifying this read as more of a women’s fiction than a romance. However, there is a sweet romance subplot which I found charming.
Very enjoyable. I would recommend this read to fans of women’s fiction.
