Review copy provided by Enchanted Book Promotions in exchange for an honest review.

When Stella Delray unexpectedly loses her job a week before Christmas, which is also the anniversary of her husband’s death, she is forced to stop talking to his ashes, come to terms with her loss, and get her life back on track for her young son’s sake as well as her own. She never expected that posting an ad on Craigslist would send her into the arms of not one but two men, one of whom is her former boss. Now she’s working as an admin for a retired Broadway star, bookkeeping for an erotic video production company, and writing love letters for the mysterious “Oaklander.” Adding to the craziness of her new life, her monster-in-law resurfaces and the father-in-law she never met shows up on her doorstep. With the guidance of her best friend, Bono, Stella will learn to redefine the rules she’s always lived by.

In Nothing is Lost in Loving, Stella Delray loses her job a week before Christmas, on the anniversary of her husband’s death. It’s a forceful wake up call that she has to get her life back on track, not just for herself, but also for her young son’s sake. She posts an ad on Craiglist that sends her to work as an admin for a retired Broadway star, handle bookkeeping for an erotic video production company, and writing love letters for the anonymous”Oaklander”.

I really enjoyed the writing in this story about starting over and second chances. It flows well, and the pacing is fast but not too fast. I got a good grasp of Stella’s personality, and I felt for her almost immediately. She suffered through a lot, and now, she’s finding the strength to move on.

An inspiring read about one woman’s journey. I recommend this book to everyone who enjoys women’s fiction.
