#Dancing With The Sun by Kay Bratt–Review–5 Stars-#NetGalley

Dancing with the sun:xx 850.jpgKay Bratt’s New Outstanding Book, About Healing, Forgiveness, & Survival–Coming 11/27/18

 

Dancing With The Sun is a book to savor, remember and read again.  The story is heartfelt, beautifully written, and emotionally moving. 

Sadie suffered from empty nest syndrome and a failing marriage.  She also stopped truly living life the day her son Jacob died. And, although Sadie loved her adoptive daughter, Lauren, Sadie’s buried grief over her lost son, clouded that relationship. When her daughter, Lauren, traveled across the country to go to college, Sadie worked extra shifts to bury her loneliness. Tom, Sadie’s husband, spent less time at home than ever before. He worked long hours at the office, and often left for weekend trips, alone.

When many of Tom’s belongings and his favorite slippers went missing from the house, Sadie figured that her husband had found someone else. She didn’t blame him really. It was just another painful loss for her to bear. Sadie decided to visit her daughter in California. She wanted to break the news to Lauren gently so that when the changes occurred in the family, it wouldn’t be a complete surprise to Lauren. 

Although Sadie wasn’t keen on hiking in Yosemite National Park, she allowed  Lauren to lead the way. It was while they were lost in the wilderness that Sadie faced her unresolved grief, failures, and regrets; and found forgiveness and healing, for her soul. 

Kay Bratt brought the book alive for me with vivid wilderness scenes, rich character development, and raw emotion. I loved every page of this heartwrenching, compelling and touching novel.

Thank you, Lake Union Publishing and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy.

#The Memory of You by Jamie Beck–Review–5 stars–#NetGalley

the memory of you:.:.:. 850.jpgAn Exciting New Read by Jamie Beck–Coming 10/30/18

 

 

The Memory of You is an engaging, emotional and well-written novel.

Twenty-nine-year-old, Steffi Lockwood is a businesswoman, driven, and independent. She owns a refurbishing company, with her close friend, Claire. Lately, Steffi has become irritated, over her friend’s nagging. Steffi admits that her dissociative episodes were puzzling and bothersome, but not enough, to see a specialist. Steffi has already checked with her neurologist and was satisfied with his findings. Claire disagreed and wanted her partner to seek a second opinion. Steffi refused to see any more doctors, and counseling was out of the question. Steffi would reconsider, however, when her stubbornness, put a little girl in danger.

Letting go of Ryan Quinn, was Steffi’s biggest regret in life. She left him ten years ago without saying a word. Ryan was devastated. He took up with a girl who was the complete opposite of Steffi. When Val, his rebound girlfriend, announced that she was pregnant, he married her.

While working on divorce negotiations, Ryan moved back into his mother’s house, taking his daughter, Emmy, with him. Ryan was livid when he found Steffi Lockwood with his mother. Steffi’s heart stopped when she saw the man, whom she has loved forever. Although she knew that she had no reason to expect forgiveness from Ryan, she desperately wanted it.

Life is never black and white. It’s messy, complicated and filled with hope, happiness, hurts, and disappointments. The Memory of You is a well-written, emotional book, about relationships, divorce, forgiveness, and love. I cared about the characters right from the start and was emotionally invested in their lives. I loved this book and can’t wait to read the next in the series.

Thank you Montlake Romance and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy

#Winter In Paradise by Elin Hilderbrand-Review–5 stars- #NetGalley

Winter in Paradise 850.jpgDon’t Miss Elin Hilderbrand’s Newest 5-star Release! Coming 10/9/18

 

 

Irene was happy with her life as a wife, mother, and magazine editor until an email, detailing her demotion came to her attention, as well as a distressing phone call, informing Irene of her husband’s death. Irene had always been secure in her marriage. She never worried about her husband having affairs, even though he traveled a great deal. Her husband doted on her and showered her with attention whenever he was home. Perhaps, she should have been more concerned, because when he died in a helicopter crash, his mistress, a woman from St. Johns, USVI, perished along with him.

Irene wasn’t exactly excited to be taking a trip to the Virgin Islands, but her husband’s hidden life had her wanting answers. Irene’s grief and disbelief turned quickly to anger when she discovered the magnitude of her doting husband’s deceit. Irene’s sons, Baker and Cash Steele flew to the Virgin Islands, not only to support their mother but to do a little investigating themselves. The two brothers had never been close, but increasing competition and anger skyrocketed, when the two of them fell for the same Island girl, crushing any brotherly relationship they had. 

Winter In Paradise is a compelling and well-crafted novel. The author drew me into the story right from the start. The characters are fascinating, the dialogue realistic and the story captivating. It does end with a cliff-hanger, however, so be warned. I plan on reading book two in the series. I’ve read several of Elin Hilderbrand’s books and have never been disappointed; Winter In Paradise is no exception.

Thank you, Little, Brown & Company and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy. I loved it!

#The Coordinates of Loss by Amanda Prowse-Review-4 stars-#NetGalley

the Coordinates of loss:.jpg::.jpg 850.jpg

New Release by Amanda Prowse–The Coordinates of Loss– Coming–9/25/18

 

The Coordinates of Loss is a profoundly moving book that takes place on two fronts, England and Bermuda. Rachel was ecstatic about moving to Bermuda with her husband, James, and their son. The couple would have several years of happiness on the Island, and develop, a deep friendship, with their housekeeper, Cee Cee, before a disastrous tragedy would rip their family apart.  

Be prepared to suffer from an emotional overload. Each page is dripping with raw emotion. The grief Rachel and James suffer is palpable. Cee Cee becomes much more than just a housekeeper to them. She unselfishly gives of herself and plays a part in the couple’s healing. Rachel feels Cee Cee’s comfort the most, as she reveals to Rachel, her own soul-tearing loss, which occurred years prior.   

The author does an incredible job tapping into the mind and hearts of her characters, especially Cee Cee and Rachel’s. The writing in this book is outstanding.  I’ll warn you though; the sadness is heartwrenching and overwhelming at times. Keep tissues handy. 

Thank you, Lake Union Publishing and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy!
