Review: Revelry by Kandi Steiner

*****4.5 Stars*****

Wren needs to find herself again. Being divorced at twenty-seven was not in her plans and she is still trying to get her mind and emotions to come to terms with it. She decides spending a few months in a small mountain town is the perfect setting to rediscover who she is and figure out where she's going.

Once she arrives, everything looks perfect! Beautiful scenery, a cat and welcoming residents...except for one brooding make neighbor. Just her luck, when she has an unfortunate and embarrassing incident shortly after arriving her savior comes in the form of said man.

Anderson is also new to town and he is perfectly happy being left to his own devices. He's got demons he is dealing with and no one else needs to be subjected to them. Then he runs into Wren. It isn't long until he finds himself wanting to know why she is in pain and feeling a need to help her get over that pain. Maybe two wounded people are exactly what us needed to heal wounds and find hope for the future.

I really enjoyed this book. Wren and Anderson are dealing with a lot of pain and baggage, but they slowly heal together and it was so beautiful to watch. There is angst here and this is definitely an emotional read but the ending more than makes up for it. Another great read by Steiner!

Wren Ballard is trying to find herself.

She never expected to be divorced at twenty-seven, but now that the court date has passed, it’s official. The paperwork is final. Her feelings on it aren’t.

Spending the summer in a small mountain town outside Seattle is exactly what she needs. The peaceful scenery is a given, the cat with the croaky meow is a surprise, but the real kicker? A broody neighbor with nice arms, a strange reputation, and absolutely no interest in her.

Anderson Black is perfectly fine being lost.

He doesn’t care about the town’s new resident — he’s too busy fighting his own demons. But when he’s brought face to face with Wren, he can see her still-fresh wounds from a mile away. What he doesn’t see coming is his need to know who put them there — or his desperation to mend them.

Sometimes getting lost is the way to find yourself. Sometimes healing only adds a new scar. And sometimes the last place you expected to be is exactly where you find home.
