Blog Review ~ Revelry by Kandi Steiner

 Kandi Steiner

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.

Wren is a young woman trying to find herself. Newly divorced and lost mentally and emotionally, she needs a break from her life. She takes a vacation to a mountain town to rediscover who she is as a woman and designer.

Anderson is a man who has been lost for many years. He has merely been “existing” in life; until he sees Wren.

Wren is trying to find herself, Anderson is simply going through the motions of life; when they see each other for the first time, they both know that things are about to change. Wren’s divorce has destroyed her emotionally. She hasn’t fully “grieved” for the loss and she knows in order to move on, she must. Anderson has been blaming himself for an accident that wasn’t his fault.

Reading how these two damaged people have come to terms with the cards they’ve been dealt and how they rise above everything is a sight to be held.

Ms. Steiner has a way with her writing that draws the reader in and reaches into their heart. You feel the words as if they are ingrained within. Revelry was my first read from Ms. Steiner and won’t be my last.

The way this story is written it will pull at your emotions. I loved this book! Author Kandi Steiner writes a story with so much feeling that you understand the difficulty that Wren is going through with being newly divorced and how lost she is feeling with her new life. There was a constant push and pull between Wren and Anderson that I just loved. With Anderson fighting his own demons from his past it's all you can do to not fall in love with him. 

I enjoyed all the side characters especially Momma Von; everyone needs a person like her in their life. Reading this book will make you fall in love with love.
