Sometimes I’m looking for a well-written, light read.  I found it in Evvie Drake Starts Over.  Evvie lives in a small (fictional) town in Maine and is trying to regroup after the sudden death of her husband.  As she tries to figure out where to go from here, she meets a baseball player who is also looking for a fresh start.  This book captures the essence of a small coastal Maine town–lobster boats, salt air, and the simple pleasures that come from living in a close-knit community.  Definitely would recommend!
