Title: To Say Goodbye
Author: Lindsay Detwiler
Publisher: Hot Tree Publishing
Publication Date: September, 24,2016
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Women’s Fiction
To Say Goodbye is a heartwarming story, that is emotional and raw, which is exactly what I hope for in a romance novel. Well developed characters whose emotional journey is believable and have depth is what makes this novel special.
This is not a book for someone who is looking for a surface romance, but for the reader expecting to feel emotional turmoil – such as grief, and how to move on, despite it all. It is a story that does give hope, but not until those serious issues are addressed, and not just in passing. Not very many romance novels have that much depth, and realism in its plot, which allowed me to overlook some small annoyances that took me out of the story, but just briefly, and made me give it a 4-star rating.
This was my introduction to the Lindsay Detwiler, and I have to say, that I am glad I was given this copy to read via Netgalley, because I will look for her work, again and again.
4 out of 5 stars
