    One thought on “Phoenix Falling (Starting Over, #2)”

    1. I love MJP and have wanted to read this for a long time. I don't know - maybe it was me, but this one was just ok. The writing was excellent, the characters likeable and sympathetic, but the angst that should have been in the relationship of a marriage in trouble, the pain of the characters' past is not there. Quite a bit of events conspire to resolve issues and so the story did not grab me, invest me as much, or make me want to re-read. 3 stars.

    2. Mary Jo Putney is starting a new Facebook Group. She asked us to review one of her books here. As I have never met a Putney novel I didn't like, I had a hard time choosing.Phoenix Falling (earlier title: The Spiral Path) is the middle of the three modern books Mary Jo has written. I find myself returning to scenes from this book quite often as I work around the house. All three of these modern novels address changes men and women face in these modern times. The hero's problems are very big, but [...]

    3. Caution: this is no summer beach read.It's a beautiful romance about some of the beautiful people, but with uncommon depth and complexity.Phoenix Falling is harrowing and deeply affecting tale of emotional annihilation and painful recovery, and, unlike in most romance novels, love is neither panacea nor placebo. It is, rather, a sword of redemption requiring both courage and strength of character to wield it.This is hands down my favorite Mary Jo Putney novel, with her signature depth of charact [...]

    4. This one was on my shelf for a long time. Glad I finally decided to dive in. What a roller coaster read this was. Kenzie's past was far more tortured than I could've imagined. Even though he seemed to work through it quickly in the book I always had a sense it wasn't as easy as it seemed. I always had a feeling Kenzie and Rainey thoroughly struggled for their happily ever after. In fact, I'm sure they're still struggling with it. This is one that will stick with me for a while.

    5. Lately it seems like I have been getting s lot of freebies that were klunkers, but every once in while you get one like this. I really enjoyed this book. It 's a story about a marriage falling apart between an actor and an actress. It was very well written and I found myself rooting for the characters.
