Mad About Ewe, an all-new heartwarming second-chance romance from Susannah Nix, is LIVE EARLY on AppleBooks, Nook, Kobo, and GooglePlay!


Dawn Botstein is doing just fine after her divorce, thank you very much.

She’s got her yarn store to run, her house to herself for the first time in her life, and no use for men anymore. That is until the hottie silver fox who walks into her store turns out to be her old high school crush—the guy who rejected her 30 years ago.

No way is she going to lose her head over him this time, no matter how well he wears that salt-and-pepper lumberjack beard. Okay, so he’s the opposite of her ex in every way, and his attention gives her a thrill she thought she’d never feel again. She’s not risking her heart again.

Mike Pilota is having a mid-life crisis.

Only instead of buying a red sports car he can’t afford and dressing like a 25-year-old who’s time-traveled from the 1990s, he quit his job after his second divorce to move closer to his recently widowed mother.

He didn’t expect to run into Dawn again, but as soon as he lays eyes on her he’s utterly smitten. So he sets out to make up for past mistakes and prove he can be the kind of man she deserves.

But is it too late for second chances? Or will these two lonely hearts find a way back to each other?

‘Mad About Ewe’ is a full-length contemporary romance and can be read as a standalone. Book #1 in the Common Threads series, Seduction in the City World, Penny Reid Book Universe. 

Mad About Ewe by Susannah Nix

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Mad About Ewe, an all-new heartwarming second-chance romance from Susannah Nix, is coming on March 18th!

“4- It takes great courage to shoot for the stars!”

There were so many things I really enjoyed about this book.
1) It was a second-chance romance. Not only did the protagonists know one another from high school, but they were both basically starting their lives fresh after being divorced.

2) I LOVED that the protagonists were in their late 40’s.
They’ve lived some life.
There was the fact that there were grown kids involved. An aging parent. The recent death of a parent, and illness.
Real Life.

3) They also had insecurities about getting into the dating scene and/or possibly getting naked after being with the same person for so many years.

This was a wonderfully written and well-paced story.
I really enjoyed meeting Dawn and Mike.
Their story was great!

It was also lovely seeing some of my favorite characters from the “Knitting in the City” series.

A great start to a new series in the Penny Reid Universe.

“I voluntarily read an ARC of this book which was provided by Smartypants Romance in exchange for an honest review.”
