Review

"A beautifully wrought, intense story of courage, strength and love…One of the best books I've read all year. Anna DeStefano is a rare talent, able to blend marrow-deep love with family drama in an intense, gripping story." —Kristan Higgins, New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author

"If you love deeply emotional stories, you must read this one! Gripping and powerful and a simply superb read." —Jane Porter, author of The Good Woman and The Good Daughter

"From every angle, this second Seasons of the Heart novel is a wrenching, heartbreaking, and ultimately redemptive story that isn't afraid to go into some of the darkest places in the human heart, in order to help its characters find their way to the hope and love that wait on the other side … [A] story that will linger long after the final page has turned." —The Romance Reviews, 4 Stars

I usually don't read this type of book, leaning more toward thrillers and police procedurals. It sounded interesting though, so I thought I'd give it a try. I got about 20% of the way through it before giving up.

The author is a talented writer with a good writing style. The problem to me is the character of Sam. Sam is an unbelievably selfish woman. While she lived in New York at the time of 9/11, she didn't lose any family members or close friends. Yet we are supposed to believe that 12 years later, it is still affecting her to the point where she rarely leaves her house and has put her long-suffering husband and two young sons through years of her self-pity and drama. Her husband has sacrificed his career for her and her children are confused and never sure what to expect from her.

Then when Sam experiences another tragedy (again, her family is unscathed), she loses it all over again and leaves her husband, only to move across the street and live with the neighbors. Her philosophy is to never forget the bad things that have happened, and to wallow in them ceaselessly. She even passes this "wisdom" along to another young boy who was injured in the more recent incident and is having trouble dealing with what happened. In the meantime her own sons are left without their mother (am I a bad person for thinking they are better off?) at a difficult time in their own lives.

While I understand that both 9/11 and the school shooting were traumatic for Sam, it's not all about her, and her actions are incomprehensible to me as a mother and a human being. I'm sure it all works out in the end, but it's hard to read a book when you're rolling your eyes and you want to shake the protagonist and tell her to grow up.

I don't usually give a book a review if I have nothing nice to say about it but in this case...........I just have to say this book was one of the most dull and boring books I have ever read. Classified as a romance? Ummm, no not really unless you count the one romantic moment when Brian and Sam met at the part late one night. Psychology? No, again. The author didn't offer the reader enough in depth thoughts for that. Mystery? No, we know who did it when it happens.

The book read like a wordy diary written by a frustrated and bored housewife telling us how unhappy she was. And it never gets better! If this is what you enjoy reading, this is the book for you.

My apologies to the author, but you really missed the mark with this one. Sadder still, it's the first book I've read written by you and I'm really hesitant to read another.

Anna DeStefano second book in the Mimosa Lane series is story of healing, determination, anger, bullying, and so much more.
I do not write long reviews because I want the reader to experience the story in their own way as they read it.
I started reading it and did not want to put it down.
Samantha and Brian Perry moved from New York City after Samantha dealt with a horrible experience on 9/11. She has shut herself off for 12 years hiding from the world because of her fear and she suffers from PTSD.

She is finally reaching out and trying to heal for the sake of her family but then the unthinkable happens with a tragedy at her son's school.
This is not just Samantha's story of healing and survival but many in the town of Chandlerville.

While reading this story I laughed, cried, cheered, and felt like I was part of the story.

I highly recommend this book but before you read it, if you have not, be sure to read the first book in the series to get a better prospective of the characters. The first book is "Christmas on Mimosa Lane".

Format: Paperback
This was a book I chose strictly on a whim- no prior research into author, reviews or friends opinions (blurb is vague so good luck with that). It sat on my shelf for some time before I was in the proper frame of mind to be adventuresome. I wasn't sure if it was Romantic Suspense, Contemporary Romance or Women's Fiction. Based on what I've seen since, I don't think others know either. I would put it as a cross between Women's Fiction and Contemporary Romance with WF taking the lead on this one. I tend to shy away from WF as a genre not because I can't handle the issues or the plots or even the focus. For me, its the emotions these dredge up. I find them depressing and at times hopeless. This one was no exception although added to that I had a true abhorrence for the heroine most of the time.

This story grabbed my emotions. Early on, I wanted to toss it down and never return to it when I learned what was causing her issues. I was just done- so done- with Sam (Samantha)- there is a part of me that wonders if she's more real than I think, but that doesn't make me want to like her either. What do I mean by this? Let me give a summary and then I'll get to that. Oh and I didn't realize this was a second book in a series until later, but it wasn't a big deal.

The story opens with Sam wandering around outside in the middle of the night while her husband and kids are inside sleeping. She's trying to bolster herself up for her 'big' day. For the first time in years, she is going to attempt putting herself out amongst a crowd of people because she doesn't want her oldest son, Cade, to have passed through grade school with his mom having never once volunteered in his school.
