★ Review ☆ Then Comes Love by Lindsay Detwiler

 

 

 

 

 

5KH

 

"Sometimes love changed everything. Sometimes love came when you least expected it. Sometimes you gave up on life, gave up on finding out who you were supposed to be. And then, when you'd forgotten what it felt like, when you'd dismissed the ideal entirely . . . then, well . . . then came love."<!--more-->

 

 

I haven't had a lot of luck with ARCs lately. Honestly, I'd pretty much quit taking them. And then Lil' Maso asked me if I wanted to read this little gem. She sent over the blurb and I immediately just.....knew.

 

This was going to be a good one.

 

I am SO glad I was right! So glad I decided to review it. Sweet, comical, and a story that follows love through three generations, Then Comes Love is probably one of the best ARCs I've had to pleasure of reading. I would recommend it to anyone...and everyone.....of any age.

 

After the death of her husband, Charlotte is heading off to an assisted living facility. Needless to say, she's not thrilled about the idea. She is certain she's going there to rot away the rest of her days. But why not? Her husband is gone and she's not getting any younger . . . .but maybe age really is just a number.

 

Annie (50) is Charlotte's daughter, and her husband has just left her for a thirty-something hussy. At this stage in life, after all she's been through - the pain, the betrayal, the having to start over - she can't help but question the point of it all. She doesn't even know who she is after being a wife and mother for so long. And life is already crazy enough with her aging mother and wild daughter. Love is definitely out of the question . . . or is it?

 

Amelia (30) is the daughter of Annie and the granddaughter of Charlotte. She's in the prime of her life and dating a man who is safe, a man she can have children with and build a life with. But grandma Charlotte knows her wild-child of a granddaughter needs something more, someone who won't stifle her vibrant, spontaneous, go-with-the-flow personality. Neville is not that person. So, when an opportunity (and the right guy) shows up at her door....well, grandma Charlotte devises a plan to free Amelia from a life of decaf coffee and stuffy family dinners.

 

There were some serious LOL moments. Some sappy, make you cry moments. And just an overall sense of hope as these three women navigate through the messiness of life and love. Seriously, if you're looking for a sweet, uplifting, fun read, this. is. IT! Grab it at any of the retailers down below:

 

Keep reading....and stay saucy! <3

Voice of Innocence
Voice of Innocence - Lindsay Detwiler

* 4 stars *

 

This was a heartbreaking story but I couldn't stop reading it or thinking about it. It starts with Emma and Corbin meeting in high school. Emma always had her nose in a book and didn't have many friends while Corbin was new in town but more outgoing. They were an unlikely match but clicked and became inseparable. They knew they were meant for each other and planned on spending their lives together. Then the unthinkable happened. Corbin was charged for a murder he didn't commit and sentenced to life in prison.

 

Emma tried to prove that Corbin was innocent but when he refused to see her or answer her letters she had no choice but to move on without him. While Corbin knew he was being cruel to Emma, he wanted her to have a life, even without him. He knew cutting her out of his life was the only way that would happen.

 

So Emma finally moves on and marries another man. Many, many years later evidence that had been ignored proves Corbin is innocent so he's released from prison.

 

I liked that this story is told when Emma is a mature 47 year old woman. Now that Corbin is getting out of prison after 28 years and she's thinking about him a lot, I wonder what they'll they do?

 

This story is told by going back in time with Emma and Corbin's memories. I usually find that confusing but Lindsay Detwiler did it well so that it's easy to read.

 

Please note I won Voice of Innocence on the Tome Tender Blog in an author giveaway.
