Some days you start an interview and know from the first hello that you’ve made a new friend. Chatting with Rebekah (not Rachel) Millet about her debut novel, Julia Monroe Begins Again, was just one of those wonderful days. When you mix a fun woman, hair dye, and a crazy podcaster, things get… interesting. Listen in to see how.

Is There Anything More Delightful Than a Second-Chance Romance?
When I asked Rebekah what made this book the one that ended up published first, we got to talking about contests, conventions, conversations, and… sorry. Alliteration dies here. One sheets! I loved the story of Julia Monroe Begins Again’s journey to publication. It sounded so fun and familiar.
But I think what I loved most was how she really felt like the Lord said, “Write this one,” and “this one” was a forty-something widow’s second-chance romance. Those don’t come along every day, but Rebekah Millet not only wrote one, but He made it her debut!
Julia Monroe Begins Again by Rebekah Millet
Samuel was back. It seemed unfair to be blindsided. And in church no less. Shouldn’t there be a commandment about that? Thou shalt not step foot inside thy ex’s place of worship.
Julia Monroe has just turned forty and has high hopes for a fresh start after the last decade of her life abruptly left her a young widow and a single mom. With both her boys off to college, she can finally focus on expanding her New Orleans-based cleaning business. Julia is ready for new beginnings–but God has other plans. Samuel Reed, the ruggedly handsome Green Beret who shattered her heart over twenty years ago, has returned to town and is the kind of distraction she never saw coming.
After their first interaction in years leaves her mind spinning and her emotions out of control, Julia knows she needs to avoid him if she wants any chance of preventing history from repeating itself, but her meddling best friend keeps throwing them together. And now it seems inevitable that the man who was hard to forget might just be impossible to resist.
