My Thoughts…

There is so much story packed into this novella.  This is such a different twist on anything I have ever read by Lindsay Detwiler.  It deals with a couple heavier topics like addiction and suicide.  Marley seems like such an addictingly care free person.  I love her personality.  How corky she is yet sweet and giving at the same time.  Henry’s little appearance is just perfect!! I loved every second of it!! Alex was raised in the complete opposite environment that Marley was.  Everything was precise and done for a reason.  He is going to become a doctor, and move back to California to work with his father at the facility his father wants him too.

For some reason this odd couple is the perfect fit for each other it seems.  However they both have their demons they need to fight.  In such a little book this author managed to evolve these characters so well it floored me.  Did I want more??? Of course!  I always want more when I fall in love with the characters. How did she fit a slow burn romance into a Novella?? How??  I really don’t want to spoil this book for anyone. So I really just suggest you go and buy it and read it for yourself!!

A little excerpt..

The rain quickly turns to a downpour. I put my arms up to shield myself, as if this is going to work.

“Shit. we should get going,” I say, turning to head down the trail, expecting Marley to shriek and cover her head, too.

Instead, she just laughs. “Why? Are you the Wicked Witch or something? Are you going to melt?”

She lets go of my hand and stretches her arms out, her face raised to the sky as she smiles, breathing in, laughing a little. “It feels so good.”

I stare at her, this mysterious girl in a sunshine yellow dress acting as if the deluge of rain is a religious rite.

Author Info…

 

Lindsay DetwilerAn English teacher, an author, and a fan of anything pink and/or glittery, Lindsay’s the English teacher cliché; she love cats, reading, Shakespeare, and Poe.

She currently lives in her hometown with her husband, Chad (her junior high sweetheart); their cats, Arya, Amelia, Alice, and Bob; and their Mastiff, Henry.

Lindsay’s goal with her writing is to show the power of love and the beauty of life while also instilling a true sense of realism in her work. Some reviewers have noted that her books are not the “typical romance.” With her novels coming from a place of honesty, Lindsay examines the difficult questions, looks at the tough emotions, and paints the pictures that are sometimes difficult to look at. She wants her fiction to resonate with readers as realistic, poetic, and powerful. Lindsay wants women readers to be able to say, “I see myself in that novel.” She wants to speak to the modern woman’s experience while also bringing a twist of something new and exciting. Her aim is for readers to say, “That could happen,” or “I feel like the characters are real.” That’s how she knows she’s done her job.

Lindsay’s hope is that by becoming a published author, she can inspire some of her students and other aspiring writers to pursue their own passions. She wants them to see that any dream can be attained and publishing a novel isn’t out of the realm of possibility.
