She never thought life would beat her down. She never imagined the man she loved doing it either. Starting over in a small town was her only option. Once she arrived in Carson Falls, she realized her life never really began until the locals, one specifically, proved that there are things that can mend your spirit.
He never thought the mother of his child would walk away. He also never thought she would end up dead. Living in a small town his whole life, he knew what his life’s meaning was, or so he thought. Once a stranger from out of town started teaching his daughter piano, she proved that life had much more in store for him.
This is a story about loss, love, and how music can teach us about ourselves.
In this book we have Ari and River.
River is as hot as his name. A firefighter, a damn good daddy and a broken man with a big heart. Like every woman's dream right!
Then there's Ari, poor girl. She's been through so much in this book- I remember feeling like goodness, she must be made from steel! She's so strong. It would have been understandable for her to give up on so many occasions.
I love this book, I live in a small town so it hit home for me, it felt familiar. Well, except for the clever use of alliteration in the shop names. I enjoyed that bit. The dialogue felt small town and southern which lent to the authenticity of the story. The gossip helped a lot too! Who doesn't want a kick ass friend like Penelope Gertrude Sloane?
This story is filled with so much heart and passion you're sure to finish it in one setting.
Great summer read!
I really enjoyed this book. The flow was great and the characters were perfect. What a great debut novel. I can’t wait to see what Paisleigh has in store for us next!!
Arianna Morgan has been through hell at the hands of her boyfriend whom she thought would protect and love her. She is getting a fresh start in Carson Falls with the help of her best friend from college.
River has grown up in Carson Falls and thought he had a family of his own until his wife and mother of his child left once Cadence was born. He is a firefighter and works his tail off to take care of his little girl. Never having the time for a relationship, he never thinks twice about dating until he meets Arianna but can he ever prove to her that he won’t turn out to be like her ex?
River just melted my heart. The love he had for Cadence was perfection. Cadence is such a sweet little girl, my heart…oh my heart. I loved how Arianna was so much stronger than she thought she was and her journey to figure it out was heartwarming. Don’t get me wrong, it pulled hard on my heartstrings at the same time. Overall, this book had my full attention and the love that poured from the pages was pretty magnificent.
Paisleigh Aumack was born in Red Bank, New Jersey. She grew up in a small barrier island town and has lived there all her life. She has always loved music, going as far as being a trained musician. Her tastes in music range all over the board, but currently, her heart belongs to country music.
Paisleigh is engaged to the love of her life and lives a fairly quiet, peaceful existence. When she isn’t working, she is writing or she is reading. Or singing at the top of her lungs. Paisleigh began writing a short time ago because she had a story to tell.
GAH!!!! I love these reviews! You have totally made my day! <3 Thank you so much for taking a chance on me!ReplyDelete
