's review

it was amazing

Foster has had writers block for three years and it shows no sign of stopping. Her publishers sends her to the west coast to ghost write a memoir for an heiress. She imagines someone older, with a handful of cats, but who she meets is the painfully shy and beautiful Abigail Spencer. Abigail Spencer has only recently returned home after many years away, she's cautious around people and prefers to spend her time with her rescued horses or reading. Foster's arrival changes everything and the two women grow close in ways neither could have imagined in a million years.

This is not at all what I expected from the blurb. It was brilliant because Missouri Vaun is brilliant. Let go of your expectations and just enjoy the ride!

I loved the characters in this book. On the cold pacific northwest coast, Vaun creates a cast of warm and welcoming. These women are badass and brilliant and inspiring. I loved every single one of them, each with their own little flaws and quirks, but with huge hearts and strong will, lends to dynamic and three-dimensional characters that jump off the page and into your heart.

The descriptions are so beautiful and so vivid, you really feel like you are part of the story. The cold and the mist of the coast seeps into your bones. The love of books the leading ladies have pours into every passage and makes you feel like you have kindred spirits in Foster and Abigail. Vaun is a truly gifted writer and grew to be one of my favourites over the last year.

I wouldn't mind if this got turned into a series and we got to read Evan's story next! I'm not ready to let this world or these characters go.

I received an ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
