From the bestselling author of Weightless and A Love Letter to Whiskey
Wren Ballard is trying to find herself.
She never expected to be divorced at twenty-seven, but now that the court date has passed, it’s official. The paperwork is final. Her feelings on it aren’t.
Spending the summer in a small mountain town outside Seattle is exactly what she needs. The peaceful scenery is a given, the cat with the croaky meow is a surprise, but the real kicker? A broody neighbor with nice arms, a strange reputation, and absolutely no interest in her.
Anderson Black is perfectly fine being lost.
He doesn’t care about the town’s new resident — he’s too busy fighting his own demons. But when he’s brought face to face with Wren, he can see her still-fresh wounds from a mile away. What he doesn’t see coming is his need to know who put them there — or his desperation to mend them.
Sometimes getting lost is the way to find yourself. Sometimes healing only adds a new scar. And sometimes the last place you expected to be is exactly where you find home.
Revelry is the story of Wren, she wasn’t happy with her husband and she is now she divorced. The problem wasn’t a lack of love because she loves him but they weren’t made to be together. Wren has a lot of difficulties to be herself after that, she is a little depressed and she chooses to rent a cabin for the summer. Wren is smart girl, she has a job she liked, a best friend she loved and her only problem is with herself. She will have to deal with her feelings.
She will meet some news friends and she will met Anderson, a beautiful but broken man. He lost someone a little while ago but the pain is so awful since her death that he is alone and sad every time. Anderson is weird at first, he thinks about his cousin all the time, live only for her memory and he feels guilty for what happened. Life isn’t easy on him but the apparition of Wren will change a lot of things, he will open himself to other again.
This book is a story about loss, love, depression and life. Wren lost the love of her life, or at least that what she thought, Anderson lost a person he loves. They both are falling in love together and it’s beautiful but somehow, I find that painful because they love each other but they don’t want to give a chance to the other. It’s about life because after everything they must learn to live without and with everything, it’s hard but life isn’t easy and it’s beautiful to see them fall in love and learn to trust each other.
I like the characters, they are interesting, the story is beautiful and I like to see broken people learn how to live again.
Quick word: A beautiful story about two people who learn to live again.
About the author
Kandi Steiner is a bestselling author and whiskey connoisseur living in Tampa, FL. Best known for writing “emotional rollercoaster” stories, she loves bringing flawed characters to life and writing about real, raw romance — in all its forms. No two Kandi Steiner books are the same, and if you’re a lover of angsty, emotional, and inspirational reads, she’s your gal.
An alumna of the University of Central Florida, Kandi graduated with a double major in Creative Writing and Advertising/PR with a minor in Women’s Studies. She started writing back in the 4th grade after reading the first Harry Potter installment. In 6th grade, she wrote and edited her own newspaper and distributed to her classmates. Eventually, the principal caught on and the newspaper was quickly halted, though Kandi tried fighting for her “freedom of press.” She took particular interest in writing romance after college, as she has always been a die hard hopeless romantic, and likes to highlight all the challenges of love as well as the triumphs.
When Kandi isn’t writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, talking with her extremely vocal cat, and spending time with her friends and family. She enjoys live music, traveling, anything heavy in carbs, beach days, movie marathons, craft beer and sweet wine — not necessarily in that order.
