The chance to love again.

Thanks to Boldwood Books and NetGalley, too, For my copy of this book, here's my honest review: This is a highly emotive, contemporary romance, Encouraging giving dancing in the rain a chance. Both main characters have pasts filled with loss and grief, And stopping it control their future would be a relief. There are glimpses of events from both their pasts, Giving background of tragedies the pain of which lasts. With most family members gone they feel very alone Though sometimes friends can help to atone. Life has been cruel, leaving both of them reeling Maybe a lost dog might help them start healing? Get ready for Mr Pickle, and other great characters who Make this a moving story for me to review. Grief and tragedy play major parts In how open the main characters are with their hearts. Can they overcome their fears and give love a chance? If they can, they'll have such a delightful romance. However, keeping quiet about what happened before Could easily backfire once they discover more. Can they break down their barriers to let each other in So their love has a chance and they'll both then win? This book includes much about the RNLI who Deserve a mention of their own for all that they do. So please give a shout out to the brave volunteers who Put their own lives at risk to save many others, too. If this is a genre that, like me, you enjoy, too, Read it for yourself I hope you'll do. Although grief has a role, you'll find that after There's also a place for joy, love and laughter.
