A brand new Isabel Lucero book? Hell yes!
Anniversaries are usually occasions worth celebrating, but when your fourth wedding anniversary is also the first anniversary of your husband’s death, you’ll only want to drink your sorrows away. And that’s exactly what Phoenix Nightingale does.
In the small town of Breckshire Wyoming, everybody knows everybody, so when Evan Tyler walks into the same bar she’s drowning her grief in, Phoenix knows that he’s new in town. What she doesn’t know is that he’s just moved in a few houses down from her and is about to try his hardest to break through the wall she’s had up for a year.
Phoenix has experienced a tragedy that nobody ever wants to experience. In the year following her husband’s death, she’s had what her parent’s considered embarrassing public meltdowns, and lost some friends along with her career. Just as she feels she’s at her very lowest, Evan barges into her life, forcing her to get out of the house and look at life a little differently.
He vows to help her, encouraging her to rise from the ashes and live once again. Evan doesn’t know that just by being in her life, he’s bound to send her into a tailspin, because both of them are keeping things from each other, and Phoenix may not be strong enough to handle what she finds out.
Will she pull him into the dark with her, or will he be able to resurrect Phoenix, freeing her from the depths of her depression, and show her that surviving isn’t the same as living?
Wow what a book! I’m always a bit unsure when I start novels about widows and second chances – I never know if it’ll be too sad! But I was not disappointed with this beautiful book!
Phoenix married the man of dreams in her early twenties but on their third wedding anniversary, he never came home. Now a year later her grief is still too much to bear. She left her teaching job, she never leaves the house, constantly ignoring her friends and she drowns her sorrows with drink every day. Nothing and no-one is getting through to her. That is until Evan moves to town.
Evan is the kind of guy fairytales are made out of. He’s kind, patient and a complete gentleman. Plus he’s funny and really hot! He worms himself into Phoenix’s life and gradually pulls her out of the darkness she’s lived in for so long. But when their friendship starts to become something more, will Phoenix finally be able to move on and find happiness?
Oh how I love this book! Phoenix and Evan’s story is just so beautiful and I loved every second of it. You really do not want to miss this amazing book!
