"After a bitter divorce from her unfaithful husband, Paige moves from Utah to California with her two little boys and vows to make a fresh start. She finds a job at a dental practice that helps her get back on her feet, but it's the friends she makes at her new book club who help her realize how strong she is and who give her support to carry on as she faces challenges of being a single mom. She also meets Derryl, a wonderful, kind, attentive man who treats her right-something her ex never did. Yet, Paige struggles to figure out who she is as a woman rather than a wife, how to help her boys adjust to a broken home, and whether she can ever trust a man or love again. As Paige leans on the book club ladies and Derryl's ever present care, one thing becomes clear: healing from the past requires more than a change of address."
Paige is the third book in the Newport Ladies Book Club series and is written by a different author as all the books have, and will be.
While reading about Paige it was interesting to see that Olivia, Daisy, and also Athena (that book comes out around November) seem to lean on Paige and confide in her compared to each other. I learned far more about Athena as well in this book then I did in the other two.
Paige is a strength for single mother's and divorced women out there. If you are one of those women then you should pick up this book and realize you are special and important, not just to your kids, but your family and friends! You are AMAZING!
I fell in love with Derryl and what a wonderful character he is. Doug I definitely disliked! What a creep, and not just to Paige, but his own boys!
I enjoyed watching the friendship blossom between each of the very different women. It was a fun and insightful book. Friendship is what everyone needs, and who knows you might get your next friend attending a book club. Follow Paige this time around and take in some romance, drama, heartache, and a mothers love.

"When Kit learns that her biological mother wants to meet her, it seems her perfect life is about to come tumbling down. With a new job, a husband she adores, and friends all around her, can Kit possibly be expected to risk everything for a woman who left her in a dumpster to die?
Of course, love comes in many forms. Now Kit's about to learn that when faith and hope aren't enough, charity can make things right."
This is the third and final book in the Faith, Hope, and Charity series. You do not need to read the first two to enjoy this book, but they help you understand how Kit and her husband Adam met and gives you better input on those people in her life. The first two books are called 1. Finding Faith 2. Having Hope
I have to say that this was definitely my favorite in the series! Kit has really grown since the first book but still has many unexpected surprises still ahead of her that are brought forward in this last one. She faces her parents sudden divorce and juggling relationships with both and their changing lives. Also the fact that her biological mother finds her after all these years and it's not how Kit planned the meeting would go. Of course Adam is the perfect husband who helps her look past all the negative that's creeping up and brings in the positive. She also has great support from his family and their friends.
I loved how Terri tied in the word "Charity" and used it in a couple different ways. It was truly an inspirational read! It had love, drama, heartache, laughter, and of course Faith, Hope, and Charity. Family is a powerful thing and these books hold to what it means to be one. To be there for one another, no matter the circumstance. Love never dies.
Read all three books and get the know Kit, Adam, and the rest of these fun characters Terri brought to life through her writing.
