Book Review- New Uses for Old Boyfriends

I finished New Uses for Old Boyfriends by Beth Kendrick for a Booksparks Blog Tour!

About the book:

After growing up in privilege and marrying into money, Lila Alders has gotten used to the good life. But when her happily-ever-after implodes, Lila must return to Black Dog Bay, the tiny seaside town where she grew up. She’s desperate for a safe haven, but everything has changed over the past ten years. Her family’s fortune is gone—and her mother is in total denial. It’s up to Lila to take care of everything…but she can barely take care of herself.

The former golden girl of Black Dog Bay struggles to reinvent herself by opening a vintage clothing boutique. But even as Lila finds new purpose for outdated dresses and tries to reunite with her ex, she realizes that sometimes it’s too late for old dreams. She’s lost everything she thought she needed but found something—someone—she desperately wants. A boy she hardly noticed has grown up into a man she can’t forget…and a second chance has never felt so much like first love.

I was happy to find myself reading about Black Dog Bay again.  It was like catching up with old friends.  

This time we are introduced to Lila.  I loved her story and the idea of opening up a vintage clothing boutique.  Fashion is always fun. I liked reading about her mom.  It broke my heart how upset she was.  I feel like my mom would be like that without my dad.  High school sweethearts and still crazy in love.  And of course there was a little romance.  This time between Ben, her high school sweetheart, and Malcolm, a guy she doesn't remember going on a date with in high school.  

This book was light, and fun, and just what I needed.  I'm hoping that there will be more books set in Black Dog Bay.  And I still say there needs to be a real Black Dog Bay!

I gave this book a rating of 3.5/5.
