What an incredible book
Heart wrenching story about loss and the power of love and forgiveness. I laughed, I cried and then I loved the ending.
I hardly ever write reviews for books, I had to write one for this book. I read “Erased” by these authors first, and was simply blown away by the book. I immediately searched for other books by this duo. This book was so heart wrenching and perfect, I loved it and am so sad it is over. The twist I would’ve never been able to predict, I believe I gasped and said “no” a million times once I realized what was going on. I highly, HIGHLY, recommend this book... you won’t be disappointed
Victoria Larkin is a fierce and highly respected divorce attorney who is known as the Ice Queen. Her loss of her beloved husband and toddler daughter on the day of her high school graduation has kept her in grief over 10 years as she focused solely on her studies and career. She has a meltdown during a client conference and is forced to attend a grief support group for a number of months or lose her partnership in the law firm. Grief counseling for this grief-stricken woman is long overdue.
Then we meet college professor Chase Monroe who leads the grief support group and is still suffering from his own private grief. But Chase is the man that decides to call her Tori and help her to learn to enjoy simple pleasures in life again. As he forces her out in the public and they get to know each other, Tori begins to open up and release some of her grief.
The authors brought me to tears time and again as I learned the stories behind these two beautiful people. They kept me and Tori worrying about Chase's hidden story until it finally came out. What a tragedy their stories were and how sensitively we came to learn and care about what happened to these two people. This is definitely a five star read from this writing duo!
