A love story will be rewritten in this heartfelt romance from New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Probst.
Ophelia Bishop was a lovestruck teenage girl when she and Kyle Kimpton chased their dreams to Hollywood. Kyle’s dreams came true. Ophelia’s did not. When Kyle chose his career over their relationship, Ophelia returned home to rural New York to run the family’s B & B—wiser, and more guarded against foolish fantasies. Now Kyle has come crashing back into her life, and all her defenses are down.
Kyle can’t think of a better place to write his latest screenplay than his hometown. After all, that was where he met the heart of his inspiration—his first love. He knows the damage he’s caused Ophelia, and he wants a chance to mend their relationship. If anyone can prove to Ophelia that happy ever afters aren’t only for the movies, it should be him.
As much as Ophelia’s changed, she still has feelings for Kyle. But her heart has been broken before, and she knows that Kyle could run back to Hollywood at any time. She gave up her dreams once, but maybe she can dare to change her own love story…one last time.

I loved The Start of Something Good but I loved A Brand New Ending even more! It’s emotional and sweet and full of the #feels! Jennifer Probst outdid herself in this book!
As you know, I am such a fan of second-chance romance and the brother’s best friend trope. This book has BOTH! So, it definitely had me from the start!
In A Brand New Ending, Kyle, a popular screenwriter is back in his hometown and is trying to rewrite history and win the love of his life. Ophelia and Kyle ran away to Los Angeles to pursue their careers, but Ophelia gave up on hers and returned home broken-hearted.
I really loved that the hero is the one chasing after the girl this time. And while this is a tried and true plot, I like the slight changes that Jennifer Probst used to spin this plot. I also liked the fact that Ophelia stood her ground and did not cave right away even though she still had feelings for Kyle.
A Brand New Ending is also about forgiveness and redemption. We get Kyle’s backstory and how he became what he is. And I also loved the decisions he made in the end.
Another amazing animal character in this book is Charlie, the senior Black Labrador that gets fostered by an unlikely character! I agree that animals can heal even the evilest human being so yay for this!
Jennifer Probst weaves an interesting and heartbreaking romance that ends in an amazing and surprising HEA! I highly recommend A Brand New Ending!
