The Queen of New Beginnings Paperback
by Erica James
If you've ever dreamed of starting over, then this bestselling novel from Erica James is just what you need...Alice Shoemaker habitually goes to great lengths to avoid telling the truth about herself and her past.
After agreeing to help out a friend by shopping and cleaning for the unknown man staying at Cuckoo House, she soon becomes suspicious that her strange and obnoxiously rude client has something to hide...
Clayton Miller's life is a mess. His career as one of the country's best comedy scriptwriters has stalled and his long-term girlfriend has left him for his ex-best friend and ex-writing partner.
Just when he thinks his life couldn't get any worse, he commits a spectacularly public fall from grace and with the press hounding him, his agent banishes him to the middle of nowhere until the dust has settled. And there he meets Alice...When Alice and Clayton discover the truth about each other they form an unlikely friendship - until Alice discovers Clayton has betrayed her in the worst possible way.

Review by auntieknickers
As in Katie Fforde's Love Letters, we have a man with writer's block and a woman who helps him overcome it, but the books are quite different. James's has more moral ambiguity and some terrific characters, as well as a darker tone.
