Reina Menasche signs in San Diego

The protagonist of San Diego social worker and teacher Reina Menasche’s Twice Begun, Paris Jablonski, shares some career traits with her creator.  After suffering heartache in her first marriage, Paris begins working as a counselor to recovering addicts, and finds the key to her own healing amidst the turmoil of rebuilding the lives of others, literally and metaphorically. Reina is a familiar part of the SD writing community, including receiving recognition at the San Diego Book Awards and Southern California Writers Conference.

Twice Begun (Paperback)

$15.00
ISBN-13: 9781478238058
Availability: Special Order - Subject to Availability
Published: CreateSpace, 8/2012 

It all begins in the closet.
Paris Jablonski, wife, mother, social worker, and aspiring writer, is celebrating her seventh wedding anniversary when she uncovers a secret letter about her sexy French husband—and his girlfriend. The letter is in French, nearly incomprehensible, and so is the betrayal. How could she, an experienced mental health professional, have so misread her own life? 
After traveling to France to confront her husband, Paris returns to face wildfires, evacuations, and a new job with recovering addicts. And she finds herself attracted to the most unlikely candidate: a recovering alcoholic who also happens to be a client.
In this heart-tugging story of love, loss and renewal, Paris Jablonski is a heroine whose street savvy must learn to take back seat to a wiser heart.
