From the bestselling author of Weightless and A Love Letter to Whiskey...
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.
5 Star Review by Ashley
I am standing and clapping for you Kandi Steiner because Revelry did things to me. WOW. I mean serious wow. This book gave me every feel. I still don't have the words to describe all the ways this book got to me. But I'm gonna do my best because I owe it to Wren and Anderson to try...
Anderson and Wren. So much alike but so different. Small town and big city. One stuck in their past and allowing it to rule their life. The other trying everything to power through it and move forward. My heart just ached for them both. Their pain was real. Palpable. Living and breathing and breaking them from the inside out. Their pairing was unlikely at best and encouraged by the fun and charismatic Momma Von.
They saw the pain and sorrow in each others eyes. And I absolutely LOVED seeing them drop their defenses. From tubing to 90's jams and pig roasts the summer was a re-awakening for both of them. I rejoiced with and for Anderson as he started to breathe again. To find something for himself. And Wren gave that to him. My heart leapt in my chest as Wren, who was lost and uninspired and trying to find herself found so much more than she ever knew she wanted. She found what she needed. What she deserved. Home and love. But more than Anderson's love for her, she learned to love herself for all that she was and all that she wasn't. And what an incredible lesson for her (and me- and anyone) to learn.
Geesh! There is so, so, so much good in this book. Simply put, Revelry made my heart soar. Thank you Kandi Steiner. For this book. For Wren and Anderson who are so wonderfully flawed. So perfectly human. For your beautifully painful words which bled straight from the pages and into my soul.
About the Author
Kandi Steiner is a bestselling author and whiskey connoisseur living in Tampa, FL. Best known for writing “emotional rollercoaster” stories, she loves bringing flawed characters to life and writing about real, raw romance — in all its forms. No two Kandi Steiner books are the same, and if you’re a lover of angsty, emotional, and inspirational reads, she’s your gal.
An alumna of the University of Central Florida, Kandi graduated with a double major in Creative Writing and Advertising/PR with a minor in Women’s Studies. She started writing back in the 4th grade after reading the first Harry Potter installment. In 6th grade, she wrote and edited her own newspaper and distributed to her classmates. Eventually, the principal caught on and the newspaper was quickly halted, though Kandi tried fighting for her “freedom of press.” She took particular interest in writing romance after college, as she has always been a die hard hopeless romantic, and likes to highlight all the challenges of love as well as the triumphs.
When Kandi isn’t writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, talking with her extremely vocal cat, and spending time with her friends and family. She enjoys live music, traveling, anything heavy in carbs, beach days, movie marathons, craft beer and sweet wine — not necessarily in that order.
