Welcome to my stop on the tour for Whiskey and Country by Emmanuelle Snow. Thank you to Digital Reads PR for the invite! Read on for more info and my review. 💞
I pushed the button. I ended a friendship. Now I’m haunted by the images from that night. And I have no idea how to heal the part of my heart that is fractured.
My friend was wise beyond his age, he knew me more than I knew myself. The career, the money, the promotion, they all seem futile now. I’m stuck with no idea how to turn my life around. Until I receive a package that opens my eyes to new possibilities. And dreams I never thought I should reach for.
The journey has one endgame: find happiness again and my place in this world.
After driving for weeks, I end up in Green Mountain, a small town in Tennessee, a far cry from my hometown of Chicago.
And then I meet her. Dahlia Ellis. My soulmate. My other half. My true purpose.
Even in my wildest dreams, I would never have thought that she was where I was supposed to be.
Will the bond we share from the first time our eyes locked enough to seal our destiny, or will the ghosts from our past get in the way?
I’M SO EXCITED TO BE REVIEWING ANOTHER EMMANUELLE SNOW NOVEL!!!!!
Ahem. Sorry. I got a little excited! I just love this author so much.
Okay, but…I cried, a lot. This book is an emotional rollercoaster, but it’s so beautiful, I didn’t want the ride to end. This isn’t a surprise, nor is it the first time this author has made me cry…but Whiskey and Country had something that stole my heart just a little bit more this time.
Emmanuelle Snow is brilliant when it comes to all aspects of writing, but her characters…her characters. I’d like to note that this book had me so captivated and emotional, that I’m having a hard time writing a coherent review. Anyway, her characters are just so realistic. Watching Nick and Dahlia’s story unfold, it felt as though I knew these people.
I could keep going on and on, but honestly, you should grab your copy right now. Take my word for it. There aren’t enough words to describe just how beautiful this story is. You need to experience it.
Thank you to Digital Reads Book Tours and the author for the free review copy. All opinions are my own and unbiased.
That song. Each word Dahlia sang threatened to flood my face with hot tears. And each word patched wounds of my heart. A moment, my lungs struggled to inflate, and the next, my lips curled, a warm sensation washing my core. The song Derek loved so much felt personal now. As if every chord, every line, spoke to me. And was bearing a secret only I could decipher. As if each inflection of her soothing low voice possessed the power to fix every broken part of me. Of my heart. And my soul.
She lowered the guitar and nestled her body against mine. At that instant, I never wanted to let go of her. To breathe away from her. Something indefinable, stronger than anything I’d experienced before, enveloped us together. Brought us closer. Meshed our past and present, the aching of our hearts, the wisdom of our souls.
Dahlia Ellis and I shared more than our eyes could see. Than our hearts could define. We’d both lost ourselves to grief. In different ways, but similar at the same time. And none of us woke up on the other end unchanged.
The smile she offered me, from over her shoulder, filled me with a mix of joy and hope. Hope that whatever remnants of sorrow lingered in my heart, everything would eventually make sense again. That I would outgrow my feeling of helplessness, which still haunted me once in a while.
My journey since I left home had brought me a new sense of peace. And even if none of it erased the memory of the night I pressed that button, I now believed it had set Derek free. And that he was grateful, watching over me, and guiding me to a life I deserved. A life that would fulfil me.
