In this powerful debut novel, a young librarian grieves the loss of her husband...and discovers a love that defies classification.
It's been over three years since a train accident made a widow of Katrina Lewis, sending her and her young daughter Abbey back to the suburban town of her youth...the only place that still makes sense. Lauder Lake is the perfect place to hide and heal.
Recluse rocker Adrian "Digger" Graves survived the implosion of his music career, but his muse has long lain dormant. Until Kat hires him to play at her library—not on the basis of his hard rock credentials but rather, because of the obscure kids' TV jingle he wrote years ago. In a case of mistaken identity, Adrian stumbles into the lives of Kat and her comically lovable daughter.
Using tattoos as a timeline, Adrian unfurls his life for Kat. But as the courtship intensifies, it's unclear whose past looms larger: the widow's or the rocker's. Will their demons ever rest, or will they break these soul mates apart?
I love going into books blind. I find that when I do this I don't have any pre conceived notions. I am not biased so I read and savor/devour the ones I find to love. This being one of them. I do have to admit there were parts that were a bit slow but once I got past those it was all in.
Kat is a widow with a young daughter. I was so sad and heart broken for her. Then Adrian comes into their lives. He is the complete opposite of Kat. I was touched by the way he responds to Kat's daughter Abbey. They both have secrets and hurdles they must overcome.
The author did an amazing job of slowly showing how these two connect and come full circle in their lives. There are moments of laughter, sadness but most of all love.
I gave this book 4/5 hearts
