Grab some tissues...you will need them to read Lindsay Detwilder’s To Say Goodbye but it is so worth it. This story is about loss, forgiveness, and the future. The book sucked me right in and I couldn’t wait to continue reading it. The story is well-written, realistic, and just all-around amazing! Detwilder does a superb job writing easy to relate-to, realistic characters. This was an amazing story where the characters heal enough to finally find their happiness. I
He sighed. When he talked to his mom, he always felt like he was fifteen again. Perhaps that was her goal.
We just had a beautiful moment, I talk about myself being hunky, and all you’re worried about is if I like your Crocs?
The only words that came to her were ones she would later regret. It was a comment Tim would mercilessly tease her for, would always bring up. Later, when they were in a heated argument or she was pissed at him about his socks lying on the bedroom floor, he would turn to her and say the words symbolic of their relationship. As Tim, Stella, and Ricky waited for Sophia to say something romantic, intellectual, or just plain normal, all she managed to say was, ‘Hot damn!’
I’m with you out of love. And maybe a touch of carnal obligation.
‘I’ll sit here on this bench for eternity with you.’ ‘Really?’ ‘Can I get to at least second base while on this bench?’ ‘No.’ ‘Then I retract my statement.’
With a backdrop of noisy, splashing dolphins, Larry and Stella said their own vows. Stella promised to be faithful to Larry despite his love of pleated pants and kale. Larry agreed to love Stella despite her hatred for organization and her love of the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Lindsay Detwiler has quickly become one of my favorite authors; her books are like found treasure. I have delighted in reading several of her engaging and refreshingly entertaining stories and have adored her quirky and endearing characters. Her writing is generally well balanced in emotion – heart squeezing, touching, sweet, and humorous. Her style is easy to follow, highly relatable and relevant, while also thoughtfully insightful and stealthily observant. Her clever descriptions involve all senses, pull at the heartstrings, and conjure strong visuals; I smirk, flinch, wince, snicker, and sigh contentedly many times by the time I reach the always satisfying HEA. While I have not yet read all her books, To Say Goodbye was considerably more angsty than the other works of hers that I have read, but as the storyline featured a young widow struggling with grief and consumed with despair, buckets of angst were to be expected. However, there are also heaping helpings of wit, banter, sweetness, and levity to counterbalance. As a bonus, I learned of a treat I aspire to track down and sample – I actually needed to Google Swedish Fish as it sounded like my favorite type of guilty pleasure.
I found the writing style something frenetic, clever and clean with an exceptional way to convey the deepest of emotions. I love when the writing makes it possible for me as a reader to feel everything the characters do and unfortunately it’s rare. And the plot, the whole journey of the characters to move on is represented in a really honest way, with the good, the bad and the worst equally present. At the same time avoiding it to go completely dark and depressing.
The characters both suffered a tremendous loss even if not the same kind but they connect and create a bond that slowly but surely forms into something else. They both grieve and suffer but somehow they found it in themselves to help each other and get out of the bottomless pit they fallen into. It is really touching how their relationship goes and even if there are not many actual sexual things in it the intimacy is still very present just in a more innocent way.
The characters are realistic and easy to relate to and the story is amazing however at times I felt Sophie wallowing a bit over the top and also struggled with the heaviness of the plot at the beginning. But after I fully got into it I enjoyed every minute. Although I think reading this book requires a certain mind set, mood and it is not exactly for everybody. If you are looking for an easy, quick and sweet story then it’s not for you. For me it provided a long overdue soul cleansing.
