ABOUT THE BOOK

Publication date: March 3, 2020
Paperback: 381 pages
Publisher: Lake Union Publishing


A moving story about true love and heartbreak, mistakes and redemption, forgiveness and second chances.

Five years ago, marine biologist Abby Fisher made a mistake that cost her everything. Rather than face the consequences, she fled home to start anew—and built the career she’d always dreamed of. But when her research program runs out of funding, she’s adrift once again and decides to return to the safe harbor of her family and friends.

Except nothing at home is how she remembered.

Her friendships are strained, her normally affectionate parents seem distant, and her once-great love story is now just a painful memory. What’s worse, she keeps running into the people she hurt years ago—and they aren’t ready to forgive her.

Abby is determined to atone for her mistakes, but she can’t seem to move beyond her guilt for a chance of future happiness. Can Abby learn to sail through the storm, or will she remain lost at sea?

Poignant and heartfelt, Keep Me Afloat asks the question: How can you expect forgiveness from others if you can’t even forgive yourself?

A Beautiful Mess (Review)

A Beautiful Mess (Review)

by Brenda S. Anderson

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Publication Date: November 6, 2019
Publisher: Vivant Press
Hardcover: 230 Pages


Can she love the child who broke up her marriage?

Nearly four years ago, Erin Belden’s happy life became a shattered mess. After her husband admitted to an affair and that a child had been conceived, he left her and their young daughter for his new family. Now, she’s finally ready to put the pieces of her life together. She’s set to launch her own business and even thinks her heart might be open to romance—should the right man come along.

But just when everything seems to be lining up, she receives a devastating call: her ex-husband and his wife have been killed in a car accident, and Erin is listed in their will as their daughter’s legal guardian.

How can she be a mother to the child—let alone love the child—who broke up her marriage? Does she have the courage to start over yet again and turn this mess into a mosaic of beauty?

A single mother’s journey from bitterness to forgiveness

***

Emotional and uplifting, A Beautiful Mess is a delightful novel about a woman, a mother, taking all the life challenges and learning to face them with the power of love and faith.

This book title perfectly defines the plot. Because no matter how tough the situation appears, the characters penned by Brenda S. Anderson are motivated by good feelings, always looking for the good out of situations that at first might seem unbearable.

From the very first pages, you can see Erin as a protective mother and a determined woman who is going to find the right balance between her work and her new family of two instead of three. Yet she’s far from being flawless. Inside she’s very vulnerable, and the scars from her past are still there, ready to menace her serenity again.

When her ex-husband and his new wife die in a car accident, Erin becomes the legal guardian of the couple’s daughter, Clara, who’s also the reason why her husband left her and their daughter Mik, years before.

Even if she accepts this temporary situation, to also protect Mik and Clara’s relationship, she’s not ready for all the emotions quickly returning like a boomerang. She has to deal with all the memories, the pain, the rage, and start opening her heart to trust again and forgive the friend who abandoned her without any apparent reason when she needed him the most.

Reading this book was such a pleasure, and with its characters and storyline, it has put at my heartstrings.

I’m very thankful to the author for a copy in exchange for my honest opinion, and I’m surely looking forward to her other books in the future.

RARE19London – Giveaway

RARE19London – Giveaway

Welcome to my Rare Experience!

Hello my lovelies,

I’ve come back from a few days in London which also included attending the Romance Author Reader Events (aka RARE), and it was such a great time. That’s my second Rare and it already seems like a family to me. It’s not just a signing event, but a place where you can actually connect with authors and readers all over the world, and you never feel uncomfortable despite how huge these events usually are.

I was there assisting Catherine Bybee who is one of my unicorns and not only as a writer. She’s such a strong woman, a fighter and her books are definitely as beautiful and vivacious as she is.

The Rare family is surrounded by people who not only loved reading but are respectful and open to the different shades of romance. I should admit there are many authors I probably would not feel comfortable to read or I do not prefer, but I will always give a chance to this event, because not only authors published by traditional and well-known publishers are there, but also talented indie authors, and I’m always excited to have one of them added to my already infinite TBR.

Thank you so much to everyone who worked so hard in organizing the event and make it a huge, welcoming and fun place where sharing our love for books and authors.

You guys, rock it!


I’m also grateful to the authors who every time choose to support us offering copies to give away.

“A thousand half loves must be forsaken to take one whole heart home.”

Carin Frost doesn’t understand what’s happening to her. A confident businesswoman, wife, and mother, she begins to resent everything about her life. Nothing makes sense. Nothing makes her feel. Maybe it’s the recent loss of her mother in a tragic accident. Or maybe she’s just losing her mind.

Enter Matias Torres. As their new business partnership thrives, so does their friendship—and his interest in her. Carin is determined to keep her distance, until a work assignment sends them to Southeast Asia where a storm is brewing on the island. In the midst of the chaos, Matias asks her to do something unimaginable, exhilarating, BOLD. Carin knows the consequences could be dire, but it may be the only way to save herself.

An honest look at love and marriage and the frailties of the human heart, this is a story of a woman’s loss of self and purpose and the journey she takes to find her way back.
