From the Author

For my wonderful readers! Due to the overwhelming requests for a sequel to FOREVER SUNSHINE, I wanted to announce that I am still hard at work with the Evans Family series. Book one, IF WE DARE TO DREAM (Nov. 2011), introduces the family, and Cher's story continues as the series evolves. I thank you all for sharing her journey with me and hope you enjoy learning more about Chuck Evans' relatives.

Forever Sunshine by Collette Scott
Cherisse Bridwell is young and naive, and is focused solely on finishing her college degree and beginning her career. Her life changes in one evening when her sister Shelly turns up at her home. Shelly is in an abusive relationship. Shelly's husband comes to Cherisse's home and the police have to be called, that's when Cherisse first meets Sergeant Brandon Nicholson.
With the guidance of Brandon both Cherisse and Shelly learn how to get on with their lives through the many ups and downs and trauma's they encounter.
This book begins as a story of Shelly's abuse at the hands of her violent husband and how she attempts escape and a new life. The book deals with the subject of Domestic Abuse clearly and truthfully. It really is what happens, statistics back this up. It shows how hard it is to leave, how hard it is for the children to trust again. Then it flows into a whirlwind love story, that's so tenderly written, where everything is going perfectly only to be hit by a tragedy. The book shows how the characters pick up the pieces and carry on with life. Then finally it also deals with the danger of being on the police force.

This book may be a novel but it is so true to life, it could have actually happened. Brilliant book that I read in only two sittings! i have tried so hard not to give away any spoilers in this review that the only other thing I can say is "Get that tissue box handy ladies , because with this book you will surely need it!"

Love is a powerful feeling to say the least. In Forever-Sunshine, Collette Scott not only captured the vital emotions associated with love, but she also revealed the true meaning of it. Cherisse... young, vibrant and inexperienced in the "real world" was my best friend from the beginning. She is forced into reality with a simple knock on her door by her sister, Sherry, and her life would never be the same.
Miracles can come in strange little packages that are sometimes disguised as handsome, powerful, and mouth-watering men, like Brandon. Brandon walked beside Cherisse from the first "accident" to the very last, guiding her and giving her the strong embrace that would see her through it all. Every good woman should have a Brandon in her life!
This novel is truly amazing from the first page, however, it shares an ugly truth with its readers. Domestic violence is a slithering poisonous snake waiting in the weeds. You may not see it in your daily talks with your neighbor, at your school PTA meetings or even at the family barbeque. But while trying to stay hidden and out of sight, this snake with strike leaving everyone around it in fear and turmoil. Collette Scott does a wonderful job shedding light on this dangerous issue by writing a compelling love story that proves the pain, joy and triumph of true love. You will smile at the flirtatious comments, become breathless with the passion, and will fight back the tears with little success.
It was my pleasure to read such a touching story.

Cherisse takes a call from her sister that will forever change her life. Her sister Shelly is living in an abusive relationship and needs a place to stay until her husband calms down. But it doesn't go exactly as planned. Before the night is over Cherisse will meet a man that will help not only her, but her sister.

The book deals with abuse, grief and love. The Prologue begins with Cherisse writing about how her doctor told her that perhaps writing about her grief would help her get past the pain. So you know that there will be sad parts from the very beginning. The author warned me that the book would be sad, but it was also nice to have the warning at the beginning. Just in case I wanted to have some tissues handy.

There are some books that capture your interest from the very beginning and never let go. When I get a book like this I am so into the book that I fail to notice what is going on around me, I don't notice if something is worded wrong or misspelled. The world fades and I begin living the story.
This is just that sort of book. I couldn't put the book down. The subject of spousal abuse was handled so well. It really showcased what is going on in the lives of these poor women. This book is labeled as fiction, but truly felt like I was reading a true story. The main character is telling her story in first person. So I felt like I was given an even closer look into her life by hearing the story in her own words.

I HATE sad stories, but I would read this book again, it was that good. And also to be fair, only about 2 chapters are sad. The story ends well and left me feeling thankful for my wonderful husband in more ways than one. I appreciated the way the author showcased a beautiful marriage and an abusive one.

Format: Paperback
I'm not usually a reader of romances but this book drew me in because I wanted to see how the subject of domestic violence was handled. I have to say the book dragged me in from the start and once started I couldn't stop reading until the end. The author took a hook and deprived me of my sleep.
Domestic violence is anathema to me and I am part of groups wanting to see the abusers having the book thrown at them by the courts. This author brought the subject into the open in the right way. Not just describing the act of physical violence but also the mental cruelty that accompanies it and the use of guilt as well as fear that takes the abused back to the abuser time after time. All too real.
To have the heroine of this story relate her own life as an observer to the abuse and the changes in her own life as well was beautifully done and I'm only sorry that reality intruded and stopped there from being a happy ending. Life is like that.
The descriptions in this book should be a standard teaching aid for social workers and the police to understand what happens during domestic abuse and much as I'd like to say they were overdone it's not true and for that reason this is a compelling story not to be missed.

Sequel to Forever Sunshine?
I can't think of how the story could go on and still keep the emotional impact that it currently has. It would be interesting to see what happens to Shelly and Cher, but I wonder if their lives could ever live up to this book.
