Be brave. Just for sixty seconds. Twenty breaths.
One night changed them both forever.
Their lives shattered, beyond repair, with jagged edges and pieces askew.
Now, Everly has a chance to make things right. To bring healing to the place where everything fell apart. But it means facing the family her father almost destroyed, and the boy with the dark eyes—now grown—who still haunts her dreams.
Just one breath away from having your life ripped out from under you.
The last thing Hayes wants is another reminder of all the ways he failed sixteen years ago. When Everly drives back into Wolf Gap, his only mission is to get her to leave. For his family’s sake, and for his own, those demons need to stay buried for good.
But everything about this woman is a surprise, from her spine of steel to the sanctuary she hopes to create with the land her mother left behind. And Hayes is powerless to stay away.
As a careful friendship sparks into something more, someone watches. And they’ll do anything to tear it all apart…
4 Heart Review by Ashley
A new small-town to fall in love with? One that is seeped in pain and anger and tragedy? Yes please! The opening of Tattered Stars had me holding my breath and needing to know what was next...
I absolutely adored Evelyn. She was brave. Fearless. Strong in both body and mind. Determined to turn the site of some much anguish into a beacon of hope. If only the rest of the town would be as excited about it as she would...It certainly didn't start that way. Cue Hayes. The town sheriff. Dedicated to his job. His town. His family. His less than warm welcome to Everly set the tone for what was sure to be a tumultuous relationship.
Until dangerous situations started popping up. And they all seemed to target Wolf Gap's newest resident. It stirred up all of Hayes' protective instincts and the guilt that he hadn't been able to let go of. And the rest of the Easton family rallied to help support the woman who had given them so much. I loved seeing them welcome Everly into the fold as one of their own. It helped everyone shed the armor of pain they wore.
Intense. Emotional. Dangerous. Hayes and Everly's slow burn had me hanging on every word. And holding my breath as everything was handing in the balance. I feel breathless after finishing this book. Whew! I can not wait to see what Catherine Cowles has in store for this series.
