Rekindled by Barbara Delinsky
two books in one:
Flip Side of Yesterday by Billie Douglass Barbara Delinsky
Chloe and Russ meeting once again...he's moved into her beach house in Little Compton, RI (a town I'm familiar with and it's surroundings)
Fun to listen to where they go for lunch, mansion for dinner at night and all the descriptions of the sea and sand scenes.
She's an geologist consultant and plans for big communities that will not harm the land. He's into developing land with a bit of regar

This was not my favorite book by Barbara Delinsky. It has two different novels in this book. I think the second novel was better and it did have a surprise twist toward the end.
Just finished it, oh, how I loved this book. I enjoyed both stories, but the second one Lilac Awakening more, it was a wonderful story! It's not so much a story to relate to by the situation, but more by emotions, I just couldn't stop reading.

Don't want to spoil it for anyone, so i won't write any details here, but I do definitely think that this is so worth reading! I might say the same for some other books by Barbara Delinsky, i guess, I'm a fan of her work.
This was a bit saccharine for my taste. A typical love story or two. I don't remember the first story as I read it quite some time ago. But the lilac story seemed unrealistic (which is what I guess romance is supposed to be Luke - fantasy for women). Would Anne really have gone back to Mitch after being deluded by him for so long? And she would have forgiven him that easily? Really? Anyway, besides my being realistic, it was a "nice" story.
Two novels in one ("Flip Side of Yesterday" & "Lilac Awakening"). VERY different novels than the one I read most recently. As usual, Delinsky has super character and plot development. I was disappointed that they were more risque than I'm used to reading and lacked any real substance. However, easy quick reads that didn't require too much thought. I'm thinking I will stick to her newer novels which deal with some major societal issues.

Relaxed reading...two novellas that I lost myself in this Sunday.

I've always enjoyed Delinsky as she never fails to deliver. Although I believe both of these stories could have been full novels, the characters were developed enough that I felt involved.

Thanks for a wonderful way of escape Barbara...I'm one of your fans and appreciate the way you write!
These are two early novels. The Flip Side of Yesterday is about a romance that began 10 years earlier and then begins again. Lilac Awakening is a story of two lonely strangers that meet in Vermont. Both stories have an interesting twist. Well written with a strong story line that kept me interested to the very end.

this book might be some other kind of books wrote by Barbara D. but there is something unique about it, it touched my heart, it brought out something exquisite. Maybe beyond words.
Rekindled has two books in one by Barbara Delinsky. Both are very good and make this romance-lover very happy. I really like Barbara Delinsky's writing.
I liked the second story much better than the first.

I was born and raised in suburban Boston. My mother’s death, when I was eight, was the defining event of a childhood that was otherwise ordinary. I took piano lessons and flute lessons. I took ballroom dancing lessons. I went to summer camp through my fifteenth year (in Maine, which explains the setting of so many of my stories), then spent my sixteenth summer learning to type and to drive (two sk ...more
