Texas Refuge
Texas Refuge - Jean Brashear Texas Refuge is tale of strength in times of despair. Brashear truly got underneath my skin with Quinn and Lori. Whether playing the hero or struggling with guilt, Quinn is a sight to behold. He never wanted to be a hero, but that's the only life he knows. After tragedy hits too close to home, he questions his choices even as he continues to do what's right. Lori is the salvation he seeks, but in his life danger is never far away and this time, another heartbreaking may be his undoing. From Brashear's haunting words to Dove's emotional delivery, Texas Refuge gave me chills.

Rocky Mountain Refuge
Rocky Mountain Refuge - Nicky James

Once again Nicky James tackles a very serious mental condition and does so with such thoughtfulness, such care and with love.

 

Not everything in life is easy, you know. It’s the people who risk facing the hard stuff and the scary stuff every day who come out stronger in the end.

 

And while this is a quote from the book, this could certainly apply to the author as well.  She does not shy away from difficult stories.  From stories of loss, mental health and death.  She tackles these head on and with such love. And it is these stories which grab hold of your heart and soul and that ultimately become some of the most memorable reads for me.  

 

This is one of those stories.  The ability to get into the head of our sweet Huxley could not have been easy to write but my heavens...I felt it all.  Every fear, every doubt.  And to not only write about this character's condition but to develop an equally complex character in Aspen whose patience, love and understanding leads this character home could not have been easy.  And where they ultimately found home was just perfection.

 

This is quite a long book and one that builds quite beautifully.  Trust is not something that comes easily and therefore it takes time.  

 

Not all people are out to get you, Huxley. Some people just want to be nice. 

 

How do you build trust with someone who doubts your every move? Who reads things into statements differently and has fears you cannot begin to understand?  

 

That definitely takes patience and time.

 

This book is that exploration. It is that journey of trust which is told here.  And while your heart breaks, you understand the journey is not an easy one. Mental health is not easy.  You cannot simply take a pill and make things better.  Mental health affects the person and those around them in such a special way.  And living with this falls on both parties. 

 

Trust. Love. Understanding. Patience.

 

I cannot recommend this book and others by Nicky James enough.  Open your heart to some feels you will not soon forget.

Refuge for Masterminds
Refuge for Masterminds - Kathleen Baldwin

I don't usually like romance novels and I don't seek them out but the title caught my eye and I had to read the series. It was a good mix spy and romance were the heroines where able to take care of themselves and had special training to do so. I would recommend to any YA reader.
