Where to Purchase
"A warm and witty tale that will grab you by the heart!"--DENISE HUNTER, bestselling author of the Riverbend Romance series
Samuel was back. It seemed unfair to be blindsided. And in church no less. Shouldn't there be a commandment about that? Thou shalt not step foot inside thy ex's place of worship.
Julia Monroe has just turned forty and has high hopes for a fresh start after the last decade of her life abruptly left her a young widow and a single mom. With both her boys off to college, she can finally focus on expanding her New Orleans-based cleaning business. Julia is ready for new beginnings--but God has other plans. Samuel Reed, the ruggedly handsome Green Beret who shattered her heart over twenty years ago, has returned to town and is the kind of distraction she never saw coming.
After their first interaction in years leaves her mind spinning and her emotions out of control, Julia knows she needs to avoid him if she wants any chance of preventing history from repeating itself, but her meddling best friend keeps throwing them together. And now it seems inevitable that the man who was hard to forget might just be impossible to resist.

"This is one of the most adorable debuts I've read in a long time. Millet has written an achingly sweet story about second chances and the beauty of how forgiveness creates freedom . . . and joy."
Pepper Basham, award-winning author of Authentically, Izzy
"Millet debuts with a sweet second-chance romance . . . Readers will be charmed by Millet's sympathetic characters--especially headstrong, hopeful Julia--and the romance at the story's center uplifts without being saccharine or overdone. It's a heart-warmer."
"Millet opens her new Beignets for Two series in New Orleans with a contemporary tale that dives deep into grief born of loss and betrayal and the insecurities left in its wake. Julia Monroe Begins Again is steeped lovingly in Southern culture and color, while Christian faith is a prominent stronghold for the characters' relationships and decisions. Millet shines in this complex, introspective, and compassionate rendering of midlife new beginnings."
