4 stars!

After the tragic lose of her husband, Dahlia finds herself sinking into a deep depression that even Lily and Vi can’t pull her out of. Forced to face reality she finds comfort in Kai.  A caretaker at a resort in Indonesia.  Only then does she start the long journey of acceptance and healing.  Then she is be dropped the largest bombshell of them all by Shane’s mother that will shake the very foundation of Dahlia’s world.

“The Old Woman once told m that everyone is a little bit damaged.  She said it’s like gluing the pieces of a shattered vase back together. The cracks are still there no matter what you do. But it’s always possible to make it whole again.”

I loved this book.  You got to know D on a deeper level.  You felt her sorrow you, you felt her pain. There was plenty of Lily and Vi and of course hot steamy sex.

Vivian Winslow was born and raised in Southern California. Before becoming a writer, she made a career out of moving around the world every couple of years thanks to her husband’s job. She currently lives in New York City with her husband and two elementary school age children, and is grateful to finally have a place to call home for more than two years. New York is the perfect city to indulge her love of shopping, the arts and especially food. If she’s not at home writing or running around the city with her kids, you’ll most likely find her indulging in pizza on the Lower East Side or having a cocktail at her favorite bar in Alphabet City. That said, she’s still a California girl at heart and would gladly trade in her heels for a pair of flip-flops to catch a sunset on the beach
