Oh yeah! This is what I’m talking about! A novella that is full and rich, filled with enough angst to keep it going, romance that will make you swoon, and some drama to keep it interesting. Add in another trip to Jamison Valley and a story that fans demanded since The Coppersmith Farmhouse and I am spinning with glee!

I was so freaking excited to get Milo’s story. After being burned in an explosion his story takes a back seat to the other characters in Jamison Valley. But now we get to see what r

This is a gorgeous little read. A novella in the Jamison Valley series, this is the story of local police officer, Milo and how he found his happy ending. It’s a short read, but it packs a punch with a lot of heart and a beautiful love story, and I loved it!

Milo was horribly burned in an explosion that occurred early in the series. We didn’t see a lot of him after that, except to know that he healed and met the love of his life, Sara. Well, this book takes us back to show us how Milo an

This book is everything.

If you know me at all, you know I’ve been DYING for Milo’s story... since the day I finished The Coppersmith Farmhouse over two years.
And I honestly started losing hope. I didn’t think I’d ever get his story.
But holy shit! It’s here! AND I READ IT! And now I don’t even know what to do with myself!

I’m honestly speechless.
This was everything I hoped for and more.
Milo and Sara have such a raw and emotional story. You’ll be drawn in on page one.

"We’d all had wild, whirlwind romances with the men in our lives. My story was the tamest one, to say the least. There’d been no murder or arson or kidnapping or mafia involvement. But we all had one thing in common. Love."

While this is supposed to be a novella, it's on the longer side which means we really get a full story to round out the Jamison Valley Series. The Candle Palace isn't a story about a girl who's always been sought after and it doesn't include a God-like hero you can't take your

The Candle Palace by Devney Perry will warm your heart and soul!

In this wonderful novella, Devney gives us the long awaited love story of Milo & Sara. The story begins in present day Jamison Valley, 12 years after Milo's tragic accident that landed him in the burn unit of a hospital in Spokane... A hospital where he meets Sara. The connection between these two was so beautiful to be apart of. Sara gave Milo the strength and courage to pull through during his darkest moments. Love

This was so unexpectedly heartbreaking and sweet. I remembered Milo being injured in a previous book and it was such a treat to get his story.

As mentioned, Milo is burnt badly in an explosion while he was working as a policeman for the local sheriff’s office. He is being treated in a hospital in Spokane, needing lots of skin grafts and numerous dressing changes every day. He is in incredible pain but there is one highlight of each day, his nurse Sara.

Sara loves her job working in the burns unit.

Devney Perry never ceases to amaze me with her romance novels and that didn't change when it came to The Candle Palace. While this is a shorter novel when compared to the other books in the series, it still moved me. How Devney can sweep me off my feet with each novel is beyond amazing and I hope all readers have a chance to read her novels.

Milo and Sarah had a sweet story. It was really good to find out how they met and fell in love. I only wish Sarah had, had a little more, umph! In her. Kicked a certain someone in the balls.

I have loved the Jamison Valley series. This was a nice conclusion. Happy reading!

Meh

A bit awks but this didn't do very much for me. Surprising for a Devney Perry as she's usually a solid 4-5 star read for me but I wasn't feeling the feels, the chemistry wasn't there and the jeopardy didn't feel threatening or give it much tension.

On reflection, I think the prologue set me off on the wrong foot as it's set in the present where we learn who she's with then we go back see how they got together. It was kind of a big old spoiler tbh.

Standalone but part of a much better series. I

The Jamison Valley series is one of my absolute favorites! And I was so happy to learn Milo and Sara’s story was going to be told! And it’s everything that I wanted and more!

I loved the balance between the present and the past. That the love between Milo and Sara started so strongly and has defined their relationship from the start. That something so beautiful and wonderful could rise from such a tragedy and difficult time.

SOUL. This book can be summed up in one word it'll be Soul! It'll knock on the door of your heart and just echo in it for a long time. This much I can guarantee, you won't be able to put the book down and you will miss it the moment you finish it.

After reading and loving all the books in the Jamison Valley series, I felt there was a story missing so when I heard about The Candle Palace I was super excited to finally find out how Milo and Sarah met and fell in love.


If you have read The Coppersmith Farmhouse you will know that Milo was burnt badly and sent to a special burns unit for treatment.

Thank you for writing this book! Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to return to Jamison Valley!!!! I have missed those folks like crazy!

What a sweet story this was. Milo needed to share his heart with someone, and Sara needed someone to love.

I absolutely love the friendships that have formed between the Jamison Valley women!

I thoroughly enjoyed every single bit of this book! The love, the alpha-ness of Milo (swoon!!), the real life issues, the way they met... all of it!

I have to admit that I haven’t read this series since I finished The Clover Chapel. However, when I saw that this was going to be a novella about Milo I knew I wanted to read it. The best thing about this novella was that I never felt like I starting something at the end of a series.

This is telling the story of how Sara and Milo met. A nurse working in the burn unit falling for her patient. It was just the right about of sweet and emotional. I really enjoyed reading how they fell for one anothe

This is the novella brought me such happiness! Throughout the Jamison Valley series, Milo has made appearances and he has been the character that I have always wondered about. How does his HEA happen? What were the lasting effects of his injuries? He may have been a side character at the beginning but he made such a huge impact on the series that he for sure needed his story told!
Devney Perry was able to make the book start out in a way I didn't see coming which. I loved reading about Sara. She

The Candle Palace was such a wonderful suprise and great addition to The Jamison Valley Series. The Candle Palace might just be a novella, but this story certainly packs a punch. It will keep you on your toes and your eyes glued to the pages…

The Candle Palace follows the story of Milo and Sara. I really loved the way the author decided to tell Milo and Sara’s story. We start off in the present, Sara is surrounded by her girlfriends, one thing leads to another and Sara begins to tell the story of

I've been waiting for this forever and I am so so glad Devney wrote this novella. Milo deserved his own story and happy ending. And it was a great one at that.

Sara and Milo's relationship was so darn sweet. I love the stolen glances and how Sara was such an important part of Milo's recovery. The forbideness of their connection brought on the angst just as Sara's past with her family. I felt so much for these two. They were both going through a hard patch and were each other's

Good story.
Well written.
Devoted Hero.
Milo and Sara.
No intimate scenes with anyone other than the Hero and heroine.
No cheating.
Other man drama in the sense that another man is interested but the heroine doesn't encourage him.
References to earlier books and events so best to read series in order not to spoil it.
Prologue is present time.
Chapter 1 is the heroine sharing the story of how they met.

Have you ever read an author that seems to have personal insight into your emotions? That knows what will trigger your laughter, your tears, your heart? I have and her name happens to be Devney Perry.

I realized this young woman was something special, when I read the first paragraph of the first book of the Jamison Valley Series, The Coppersmith Farmhouse. She immediately became my favorite author of 2018 and she has held that title in 2019.

This is the story I've been waiting for! Milo has been a favorite of mine since he was first introduced in The Coppersmith Farmhouse. And after what happened to him in that story, I so needed the backstory of how he and Sara met. The Candle Palace gave me exactly what I needed!

Milo had been caught in a pretty bad explosion in The Coppersmith Farmhouse. Because of that he was brought to The Candle Palace (a wonderful nickname for the burn unit at a hospital in Spokane). Right from the start, Sar

This novella has all the feels.

This is the story of Milo and his HEA. He is a side character in the rest of the Jamison Valley series and is intriguing enough to warrant his own story.

The Coppersmith Farmhouse, the first in the series, explains what happens to Milo to put him in the position of meeting his one true love, Sara. Milo is hurt in an explosion and Sara is his nurse in the burn unit at the hospital. You learn about the strength each of these characters has...both as individuals and as

Oh, Milo and Sara, you have stolen my heart! You are right up there with my favorite books: The Clover Chapel, Tragic, and Letters to Molly. I completely and totally fell in love with their love story. It was gripping from the start; the pain was palpable from Milo's injuries to the unit Sara worked at. The feelings....oh so many feelings. I started this book and could not put it down until I devoured the last page. Still, I could've read so much more about them.

The Candle Palace, is the newest by one of my favorite 1-click authors, it is a novella packed full of sweetness, swooniness and a bit of intrigue mixed in.

Milo and Sara’s story is such a beautiful one. After a horrific explosion, Milo had been in so much pain, not only physically but also emotionally. But with the appearance of his new nurse, Sara, it all becomes bearable. I absolutely adored the relationship that developed between Milo and Sara. There were some obstacles that got in the way,

Even in an sterile and painful enviroment, love found a way.

I'm still trying to find the right words now. Since page one, this book has me hooked and it filled my heart with love and hope and all the beautiful things.

This is a standalone that is also part of the Jamison Valley series (one of the best series I've ever read). Even though you don't need the previous books, you'll enjoy better if you've read them. Specially because we meet Milo right in the first one (The Coppersmith Farmhouse).

“‘Sara, you are not plain. Or dull.’ He framed my cheek with his hand. ‘Yes, I am.’ ‘No, babe, you’re not.’ He bent and brushed his lips against mine. ‘You shine.’”

And let me just speak for many of us when I say, damn it feels good to have an author like Devney Freaking Perry shine in our lives.

The Candle Palace was a novella like no other. It wasn’t just simplistic and quick like a novella normally would be. The Candle Palace is that of a burning flame; whether short lived or burned eternall
