The narrative style pulls you in, plus the dialog and the moving along of the plot...I just couldn't put this book down. It starts off strong and stays strong until you reach the end and are left wanting more. Can't wait to read the next book from this author.
The writing was great and it was easy to read, but I wasn't too keen on Sean. I felt sorry for Marla and thought she deserved so much better than a man who would never put her first or fight for her. He just went with the flow and did his own thing regardless of who he was hurting. I understand he was grieving and maybe things should never have progressed as fast as they did, but then he took off and things happened and when he came back, I wasn't feeling their HEA.
Disappointed 2.5 stars with this one. Might read the reviews on other books before I try this author again.
It was well written, the storyline flowed well and I loved the characters in the story.
Marla and Meredith (Merrie) were sisters and best friends. Merrie found out that she had a
brain tumor and asked her sister if she could look after her husband Sean once she passed.
Merrie made Marla promise and she kept her word to her sister.
Sean was devastated by the loss of his wife. He completely loss his grip on reality it seemed.
Sean needed help to just make it through the day and as promised, Marla was there to pick
up the pieces for Sean, even though she was also coping with her sisters death.
Sean and Marla realized that they need each other more than they thought and started to
develop feelings for each other. In order for Sean to have room in his heart to love Marla,
he leaves on a journey to find himself.
This is my first time reading something from this Author and I can tell you that it won't be the
last time. This is a must read Novel!
A sister gets a brain tumor. After a valiant fight... she is gone ... after asking her sister to watch out for her husband who will need help to cope after her death.
The husband just can't deal with their home and he moves to another city and rents a condo. The sister and her brother-in-law keep in touch by text and the occasional phone call. He gets totally drunk and calls the sister, Marla, for help. She picks him up from a bar and takes him home. The next morning Sean says he can't stay in the condo any more, that he needs to be around people somehow. Marla offers to let him stay in her spare bedroom.
Later, she helps him close up and empty the condo. Then, he says he wants to sell the house he and her sister owned, so Marla, once again, does all the work and packs up everything to be stored and also, lists the house. Since it's a desirable house in a great location, it sell and closes within 3 weeks!
Marla keeps working in her antique and vintage shop while all this is going on. She's having trouble dealing with her grief over losing her sister and familiarity of living with Sean is starting to lead to attraction. Both of them are feeling it and also feeling guilty.
After acting on their feelings, Sean realizes he needs to go away to sort out his heart and his grief. He hikes part of the Appalachian Trail and then takes a break and works for several months for a lumber company right off the Trail that sometimes hires hikers.
Marla, meanwhile, goes back into a routine of visiting with her parents on the weekends. She also goes to a grief counselor. And an old boyfriend comes back into her life and they start seeing each other, a lot.Read more ›
