One shot and she was gone forever.
One moment.
One decision.
I was no longer living.
Fading.
Dying.
My past and my present were stolen. 
Lost.
Misled.
My heart was broken that day.
Damaged. 
Shattered. 
But Secondhand Hearts can be mended.
Treasured. 
Loved.
Forgiven.

There are a really rare few books out there that can keep me on my toes to the point I can't predict what is going to happen.  So many stories are predictable these days just based on the synopsis.  But there was nothing predictable or mundane about Secondhand Hearts. This brilliant new writer has given us a truly heart breaking story, one that will knock the wind out of you, have you fisting the tissues, and just make you a flat out mess emotionally.

I could not put this story down.  From the moment this story landed on my Kindle I was captivated as much by the story as by the Author's writing itself.  The story follows Kessler as he moves on in a world that has gone black to him.  He used to see the world in color now its all varying shades of gray.  Working his ass off day and night to get from one day to the next without ending it all.  Then we meet Tavyn, the beautiful bubbly girl who can't seem to work the Elliptical machine at the gym that Kessler works at and the rest as they say is history.  Two tormented and twisted souls just trying to put one foot in front of the next in a world that seems to have tossed them into a holding pattern, at least where matters of the heart are concerned.

You'll never guess what's going to happen next.  Loved the Prologue all the way to the Epilogue and I hope that you will to!  Some scenes in this story and flash backs are not for the faint of heart.  Dark subject matter lurks in these pages.  Reader beware but it's worth every single second!

Highly Recommended!



I’m a teacher by day, working at the elementary level in the resource and learning assistance areas. I help students who are struggling to read and need a boost. My writing is fit into any time I can between taking my three kids to their various sports and activities. I live in the rainy Pacific Northwest of British Columbia, Canada and will often be found curled up with a good book or watching a crime drama. Running shoes are my thing, even though I don’t run, but they sure can make an outfit look super cute. Oh, and I love guacamole. I will eat that by itself or on almost anything. Ice cream ranks pretty high too.
