Book Review! The Do-Over by Melissa MacKinninon

The Do-Over (Finding Home, #1) by Melissa MacKinnon
Genre: Adult Fiction (Contemporary Romance)
Date Published: July 12, 2021
Publisher: Entangled: Bliss

After years in the grueling California dating scene, Maggie Kelley has finally agreed to marry her Mr. Right Now. But there’s just one teensy problem…the county clerk lets her know that she’s technically still married to her Vegas fling: the best three days she ever had…and can’t actually remember. The moment she sees her very hot husband after eight years, with his works-well-with-his-hands attitude, she’s sure their wedding night must have been explosive.

The absolute last person Finnegan Garrity expected at his door is Maggie—his ultimate “one who got away.” Yet here she is in his small-town boat shop, looking just as adorable as ever…and wanting a divorce. Yeah, he has no intention of letting that happen. Now he’s got one week to convince Maggie that they’re still perfect for each other.

But he’s going to need more than just a do-over: he’s going to need a miracle.

The Do-Over is the first book in the Finding Home series by Melissa MacKinnon. This was a fun little second chance story where it was more than just the romance getting a second chance. Maggie is also getting a second chance at living the life she wants, even if she doesn't know just what she wants. Finn knows what he wants, and he's not about to let it slip away again. They're both stubborn and completely cute together. I enjoyed getting to know them, and I absolutely loves the Maine setting. Maine is on my list of Must See places, and after reading this, I think I need to bump it up a bit higher on my list. I truly enjoyed Maggie and Finn's story, and I think it's a great little book to help escape reality for a while. 

The ARC of The Do-Over by Melissa MacKinninon was kindly provided to me by the publisher through NetGalley for review. The opinions are my own.

Melissa spent her childhood exploring the coast of down east Maine without parental supervision and immersing herself in any book she could get her scrappy little hands on. Although she pursued a career in theater, the written word is her true calling. She leads a full life with her husband and six children traveling the country to wherever the Army sends them in her very large twelve passenger van, in what she lovingly deems “organized chaos”. She finds time to write in her “spare time”, somewhere in between soccer practices and nap time with coffee. Lots and lots of coffee. She loves creating unforgettable romance, and enjoys writing and reading everything from sexy, sword-toting heroes to spit-out-your-coffee funny romantic comedies… as long as she doesn’t get the book wet. She leaves that up to the characters.
