WOW! This story is amazing. It concerns Michelle Lancaster aka Louisiana, trying to recover from the horrendous pain of tragic events in her life by having time alone in Driftwood Bay, Florida. She’s there alone, apart from her much loved horse, Coco, which she rides along the beach. One day she’s riding when her tears prevent her seeing local driftwood artist Brodie Stevens so Coco almost throws her when trying to avoid running into him. She’s actually seen him around but has been trying to avoid him as he’s the only person who seems to break through the ice surrounding her emotionally. He’s also damaged emotionally by his past, sad and in pain. However, now he’s met her he believes together they can help each other heal, he’s also very determined but willing to be patient and not try to rush anything.
This is not your usual romance, it is so much more. It explores grief in an empathetic way, helping the reader relate to the emotions of the characters, their trauma and struggles to let themselves actually feel, to relate and live again. It is written in such a beautiful way that it isn’t a sad story but it is one that will live with readers long after they finish reading it. This is a keeper, a book that you’ll want to revisit not just delete when you’ve read it on your ebook. Highly recommended!
Thanks to the author, publishers and NetGalley, too for letting me read an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
