When the new world you've stepped into is as isolating as the last, when your heart is broken, and your future is unclear, where do you find hope?

:::: SPOILER-FREE REVIEW ::: 6 STARS!!! ::::

Finding Eden is the continuation of Becoming Calder.

HOLY WOW. This. Was. Breathtaking!!!!! The pure, raw, heart-wrenchingly powerful emotions, the exquisite writing, and the way every single piece of the story came together was perfection. This story truly makes you believe in undying, unconditional love. It is one of the very BEST series I've ever read. 6 STARS!!

Every single emotion from Becoming Calder came flooding back the moment I started readin

This author has captivated me with her writing, her story telling and her characters that even after you finish the book, stays with you in your heart and in your head. When you see Mia Sheridan is the author, you KNOW that you will be swept away to a land you don’t want to come from. Her writing is stunning.

“Whatever the highest rating is, that’s what I give that work of art.”

“Five stars.” she grinned.

“Five life changing, extremely satisfied stars.” I said, smirking and raising both eyebrows.

These two books have really been something special. Mia Sheridan has outdone her self. The story itself is epic. The writing- phenomenal. The characters- completely and utterly unforgettable. Becoming Calder and Finding Eden are two books you will not want to miss out on.

Finding Eden picks up just after the shocking ending to Becoming Calder and we see how Calder and Eden are now having to face living in a world that they never imagined existed, struggling with loss and heartache and pain and what they have to face before being reunited again.

In this conclusion to Calder and Eden's story we learn that in the end love conquers all. Calder and Eden are free from Acadia but are haunted by the memories of it. They'll be separated for a good amount of time, each thinking the other died during the flood. They're trying to get on with their lives but finding it hard because their other half is gone. Eden meets a very generous man who takes her in and hires her as his grand daughter's piano

As much as I love the first book, this couple's continuing story I loved even more.

I love this author's work. I can always count on her to give me unique plots and one-of-a-kind characters.

To be blunt, I didn’t love this book as much as I did the first. The beautiful writing is still there alongside the endearing main characters but I just wasn’t invested in the story. I’m not a big fan of time gaps nor do I like overly sweet and sappy dialogues in place of the plot. But for the most part Finding Eden is a heartwarming continuation of Calder and Eden’s story and one I’m sure most readers will fully enjoy. Because this book builds on the story set in

Eden said it best, “Five life change, extremely satisfied stars.”

At the time of my review FINDING EDEN does not have a book blurb. To be fair to the upcoming readers of this 2-part series I’m going to make this short and sweet.

Finding Eden continues on where Becoming Calder left off. Even though their circumstances are unfavorable these two continue to be some of the strongest characters I've read in a long time.

The continuation of Calder and Eden's story is full of emotion and revelations. Page after page, this book was filled with such raw, powerful, all-encompassing feelings, it truly was a heart pounding experience.


For fear of revealing too much, all I will say is, Finding Eden was everything thing I hoped it to be. All my questions were answered and I was left with an overwhelming feeling of happiness for these two characters who have endured so much.

Finding Eden is a beautiful story of second chance romance, the incredible journey of two broken soul to rediscover oneself and their path of healing. FE is everything I want in romance novel-pure perfection of powerful love, dynamic display of emotions and two amazing heart with enormous amount of love, strength and innocence. This is a kind of story you want to live in, it’s filled with lot of swoon worthy and mesmerizing moments.

What a powerful conclusion for Calder and Eden! Mia Sheridan skillfully brought their story to a close as these two were left thinking the other had died in that mass suicide back in Arcadia. They struggle to acclimate to the modern world without the love of their lives.

Honestly, when I got to the “three years later” heading I was panicked I thought I was in for chapters upon chapters of waiting but the author doesn’t drag it out in the slightest. Our couple c

I will not be long on this one because I don’t want to spoil it. After the end of the last book things were a little…. uncertain.
Calder and Eden don’t know where the other one is. They don’t know who they really are and what will become of their future. And the time passes… until the day destiny reunites them again and one thing they know for sure: nothing will ever be the same.
This was a beautiful journey of second chances and a love so strong that never died. It’s a journey

"I love you, Butterscotch. You have the most beautiful heart of anyone I've ever met. And maybe you feel like a mess sometimes, and life is a mess sometimes, but the way I see it, you're the beauty that came from the mess."

As I write this review, I'm still reeling over how breathtaking this 2-part series is. There is nothing more that I love when a story comes back full circle and what an absolutely beautiful ending that Mia Sheridan has delivered here. Tears

"A beautiful love story in an unforgivable, harsh background."
That's how I'd describe Eden and Calder's relationship from the previous book. And I really really wanted them to find their way back to each other after the wretched things they went through at the hands of a fanatic psychopath. So, I had high hopes for this one. I even thought I might end up liking Calder more than Archer (from Archer's voice, who we can all agree is the best book boyfriend ever), but I had several issues with Calde

“I’ll be waiting for you, by a spring. Come find me, I’ll be there.”

I rarely ache for a book. I might be curious about a story to the point of completely pausing reality and forgetting everything around me, but it doesn’t happen very often that my heart needs it, craves it, wants it so much that I cannot enjoy another in its stead. Becoming Calder pushed me out of my comfort zone by immersing me into a world that I like to pretend it doesn’t exist, and it made me fall in love with tw

Simply beautiful!

What can I say, this is Mia Sheridan and she’s simply one of the best authors there is. Her stories are just full of beauty. They are complex and clever and they keep you hooked the entire time. This duet is no exception, it’s absolutely perfect. I can’t ever recommend her books enough. She’s the best, and Eden and Calder’s story will stay in your heart forever!

This books picks right up where Becoming Calder leaves off, that is, the prologue does. So, we do get some answer but then we get even more questions!

I enjoyed this one so much more than Becoming Calder! They are finally free but now they have even more obstacles to overcome.

I'm so happy I decided to read this book (huge thanks to my girls Patty and Mel, for encouraging me to) Finding Eden was a beautiful conclusion to a story where hope was nothing but a distant light...

I'm not going to describe any details of this novel, because I feel that anything I say could take away from allowing the reader from really experiencing and understanding it better. This book was the perfect compliment to the first book, where Becomi

I was very disappointed in this book, specially dealing with the fact that Becoming Calder was a close 5 stars :(..
At some points when I was reading I kept checking how many pages were left, because I wanted it to be over💔..
Its not all bad though, some parts were really cute❤
Its a nice book :D

This was beautiful...lovely...poetic.

I want to say so much but still...I don't want to spoil anything. The conclusion to this two part series was everything I hoped for. Filled with epic love, endearing hope and traumatic struggle, it was done perfectly and realistically. There was a scene that gave me goosebumps and I cried. I felt the pain and shocked surprise that accompanied such an event. Even with Calder trying to live, there was no contest. It was always Eden.

I've expressed my feelings regarding this series at my review of Becoming Calder, but I have to say a few words for this one too.

In the first book we are witnesses to Eden and Calder coming together as one, in the second installment we see them apart, copping without each other. After the tragic incidents at the end of book 1, we are left hanging and desperate to know the faith of our favorite characters. I don't want to spoil the plot for you, but this book will take your breath away. It was in
