This Week’s Book is No One But You (Silver Springs Series #2) by Brenda Novak.
There are novels out there that make you stop and think of the dark things that lurk in the world. If it is a really good novel it will balance out the dark with light. I think Brenda Novak has done it again with this novel. I was on pins and needles the whole time.
I love the way she created characters with a back story and personality so rich you expect to run into them at the store. There is no ‘meet cute’ with the main couple. No fun and free girls night out. Sadie’s story is a hard one and she overcomes everything to find a way to live a life free of an abusive ex-husband and provide for her son. I honestly had to make myself put the book in a closet so I could put it down and take a break. The action moves swiftly all the way through and I never found that one spot where I could put it down without needing to read what was going to happen next.
This is the first book I have read from Brenda Novak. I looked up her site and she has over 60! Seriously 60 novels. This book is the second in the Silver Springs Series. The first book came out in March, and the other two are coming this year. Bonus – You don’t have to wait years between the books, just a few months.
My Recommendations: 4 Stars
I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a romance where the couple overcome obstacles of all kinds to get their happily ever after. I feel the need to warn people there is domestic violence that could be upsetting.
