Never Too Late
Title: Never Too Late
Series: Along Came Love #3
Author: Susan L. Tuttle
Publisher: Iron Stream Media
Release Date: November 2, 2021
Genre: Inspirational Contemporary Romance 

Once, her art brought her fame. This time will it bring her love? 

Widowed homemaker Rachael Stark isn’t quite sure what comes after her only child leaves for college. To fill her suddenly quiet hours and scrawny bank account, she needs a job. But painful memories prevent her from resurrecting her former art career, and motherhood isn't much of a résumé. When her best friend needs help recovering from a gunshot wound that occurred in the line of duty, she is there. Finally, someone to take care of. 

Evan Wayne won't let his injury keep him from being a police officer. His dedication to protect the innocent stems from the guilt he carries over having failed his childhood friend. What he needs now is to recover and get back on the streets. Instead, he's handed a myriad of light-duty tasks by his captain―one of which involves heading up the department's entry into the town's annual mural contest. He's not an artist, but he definitely knows one. And he'll take any excuse to spend more time with her. 

When Rachael agrees to paint for Evan, she never expects to also be drawn into finding answers for the mother of a missing child. As the two friends work side by side on the mural and the case, their feelings move beyond friendship. But with Evan unwilling to leave his dangerous job, and Rachael unwilling to risk another loss of a loved one, their fears may paint over the promise of a beautiful future together. 


She tapped her stomach. “My stomach is growling. What were you thinking for lunch?”

His full concentration weighed heavy on her, as if her deflection of his comment wasn’t acceptable. The longer she knew him, the more he challenged her. Typically it was through humor or a new experience, but this summer he started to try to breach the locked places of her heart. That was an entirely new ballgame, and she still wasn’t sure she wanted to play.

Evan drew in a long breath, then expelled it in a heavy sigh. “Just so happens Hope and Alvaro Perez have a convenience store one town over that supposedly sells pretty amazing tacos. What do you think about eating there, and then I could talk with them too?”

“Sounds like a brilliant idea.” A good lunch along with somewhere else for Evan to place his attention? Definitely brilliant. She started for the door. Once on the front porch, she waited for him so she could lock up. “Just tell me where to point Sally.”

“Straight to the junk yard,” he mumbled as he scooted past her and headed to her jeep.

“Hey!” She hurried to catch up, donning the perfect amount of fake indignation while actually thankful for his teasing. This Evan challenged her in all the safe ways. But the other Evan who kept showing up, defying everything she thought she knew about their relationship? That Evan she wasn’t quite sure what to do with.
