Never Too Late JustRead Blog + Review Tour

Welcome to the Blog + Review Tour for Never Too Late by Susan L. Tuttle, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!


Never Too Late

Title: Never Too Late
Series: Along Came Love #3
Author: Susan L. Tuttle
Publisher: Iron Stream Media
Release Date: November 2, 2021
Genre: Inspirational Contemporary Romance

Once, her art brought her fame. This time will it bring her love?

Widowed homemaker Rachael Stark isn’t quite sure what comes after her only child leaves for college. To fill her suddenly quiet hours and scrawny bank account, she needs a job. But painful memories prevent her from resurrecting her former art career, and motherhood isn’t much of a résumé. When her best friend needs help recovering from a gunshot wound that occurred in the line of duty, she is there. Finally, someone to take care of.

Evan Wayne won’t let his injury keep him from being a police officer. His dedication to protect the innocent stems from the guilt he carries over having failed his childhood friend. What he needs now is to recover and get back on the streets. Instead, he’s handed a myriad of light-duty tasks by his captain―one of which involves heading up the department’s entry into the town’s annual mural contest. He’s not an artist, but he definitely knows one. And he’ll take any excuse to spend more time with her.

When Rachael agrees to paint for Evan, she never expects to also be drawn into finding answers for the mother of a missing child. As the two friends work side by side on the mural and the case, their feelings move beyond friendship. But with Evan unwilling to leave his dangerous job, and Rachael unwilling to risk another loss of a loved one, their fears may paint over the promise of a beautiful future together.


He strolled away from her and stopped by a painting of a massive dahlia, one of her favorite flowers. This had been her first attempt at something so detailed. She’d used saturated merlot tones with highlights of claret along the dips and curves of its individually cupped leaves. Chris challenged her to create it—and she had, with Gavin at school and Brianna napping nearby. Her agent, Lanette, took her on because of the promise she saw there. And Jonah hung it when he purchased her the space.

Evan peered over his shoulder at her. “I can see why they called you the next Georgia O’Keefe.” 

“You actually know who she is?”

“Sure. A famous painter known for her enlarged flowers.” He turned. “I may have looked her up after googling you and seeing the comparison. Personally, I think yours are better.”

She was a little stuck on the fact he’d googled her and a whole lot stuck on the fact he liked her old paintings. “You may be a little biased.”

His smile fired off nerves inside like those crazy trick candles. She kept trying to snuff out the sparks, but they kept firing right back up. “Maybe.”
