TBR Thursday {5}


Kimberly @ Kimberlyfaye Reads started a new weekly feature that I loved the sound of, and have decided to join in the fun! Make sure you go check out her awesome blog.

The purpose of the feature is to spotlight a title from your shelf or eReader to see what others think about it. Have you read it? Should I read it or put it back on the shelf? It’s a way to dust off those older books that have been sitting on our TBR and decide if they’re worth reading or just need removed from the list!

About the book:

What could be worse than losing your child? Having to pretend that he’s still alive…

Bestselling author Will Shepard is caught in the twilight of grief, after his young son dies in a car accident. But when his father’s aging mind erases the memory, Will rewrites the truth. The story he spins brings unexpected relief…until he’s forced to return to rural North Carolina, trapping himself in a lie.

Holistic veterinarian Hannah Linden is a healer who opens her heart to strays but can only watch, powerless, as her grown son struggles with inner demons. When she rents her guest cottage to Will and his dad, she finds solace in trying to mend their broken world, even while her own shatters.

As their lives connect and collide, Will and Hannah become each other’s only hope—if they can find their way into a new story, one that begins with love.


I bought this book on a whim, I can’t even remember if it was a blog post or Goodreads that prompted the purchase. It sounds really good, and I haven’t read anything by this author. Plus – that cover! Love it.

Have you read this book? What did you think?

    I loved this book. The In-Between Hour was the first one I’d read by the author, but it took me to The Perfect Son, her newest book, a favorite read of mine in 2015.

    I did a post for TBR Thursday, too, along with a couple of other events: MY BOOKISH THURSDAY POST

    I have been trying all morning to get to Kimberlyfaye’s blog, without success. Sometimes these sites are down for some reason.

    Oh, this one looks really emotional. The description, alone, makes me want to sob. I can’t imagine the loss of my child and can’t imagine a greater pain. But to pretend he is alive? This one sounds really original. I hope it’s as good as expected. I would love to read this one, and here you have put another one on my radar!
