When I closed the door on my past I didn’t expect it to come back and haunt me. But when you’re the sole person who can save the only man you’ve ever loved, you rush through that door, face your fears, and pray for the best.
Only, anything good has been long forgotten. In its place is destruction, devastation and enough regret to last a lifetime. I was appalled when she called for my help. I went willingly in hopes to make things right. But I never expected this. A broken man, a hopeless future, the beginning of the end.
She’s to blame for the mess of a man in front of me and I’m to blame for walking away.
Can things ever go back to the normal the three of us once knew? Or am I too late to fix the damage we’ve caused together?
4 Star Review by Ashley
I finished this book days ago and I still haven't been able to shake it. Take everything, and I mean everything, you hate to read about- twisted love triangle, loss and addiction, mix it all together and you have just an ounce of what happened in Garden of Goodbyes. This story is a BIG departure from what I'm used to from Faith Andrews but it still struck a cord.
Violet and Eden have had a less than stellar start to their lives. One of them learned to rise above and the other was drowning in her guilt. And guilt is a miserable beast to have to bear on your own. Even when you have people on your side, fighting with you, for you. Enter Lennox. Eden's boyfriend- whose own demise started with something innocent and spun out of control. When the desperation settles in, a phone call changes everything for everyone.
Eden's trip back to the place she swore she'd never go again wasn't going to be a happy walk down memory lane. Seeing Violet and Lennox was the last thing she ever wanted to do, but she needed to go. It took one of these messed up characters ultimate act of sacrifice to start the process of healing for them all.
So much happened in this book. Deception. Betrayal. Guilt. Learning. Forgiveness. Healing. Love. Garden of Goodbyes was an emotional roller coaster set to warp speed. This book was dark and raw and at times painful to get through (to the point I had to put the kindle down). My head is still spinning from that ending. While there was truly no other way for it to end, I was still left with my jaw on the floor.
