Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The host of NPR's Pop Culture Happy Hour introduces an appealing character in Evvie Drake, a recent widow living in small-town coastal Maine. Everyone assumes they understand why she has all but locked herself in her house, but even her best friend, Andy, doesn't know the truth. When Evvie agrees to rent her spare room to Andy's friend Dean, she discovers she is not the only one who's trying to hide from the world. Dean is a former Major League baseball star who's lost his ability to pitch and doesn't want to talk about it any more than Evvie wants to talk about her dead husband. Fighting her way through her guilt and fears won't be easy, but with help from Dean and her close-knit community, Evvie Drake might just make it to the other side. The charm of Holmes' novel comes not only from a genuine friendship turned sweet romance between Evvie and Dean but also from watching amiable Evvie stumble through the process of finding herself. A warm and funny book that will captivate fans of Abbi Waxman and Taylor Jenkins Reid.--Tracy Babiasz Copyright 2019 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Holmes's debut charms, as a young widow and a former Major League pitcher learn to begin again. Evvie Drake has spent her whole life in Calcasset, Maine, and doesn't feel as sad about her widowhood as she believe she should-possibly because she was packing up to leave her husband when she got the call about his deadly car accident. Then Dean Tenney, a former New York Yankees pitcher who has inexplicably lost his amazing pitching ability, comes to Maine to retreat from the media, and rents the apartment in Evvie's house. Evvie and Dean grow closer, with the agreement that they not discuss her husband or his failed baseball trajectory. When Dean gets an opportunity to revamp his career with Evvie's support, and she reveals some of the details of her difficult marriage to him, they develop trust and sparks ignite between them. But the future of their relationship depends on their ability to communicate and confide in one another. Believable, flawed characters are at the heart of this novel. At times deeply emotional yet sometimes extremely humorous, This is a satisfying crowd-pleaser. Agent: Sarah Burnes, the Gernert Company. (June) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
