  • Never Forgotten on Aug. 21, 2014

    As an author and mother of six kids, I’m extremely picky about what I spend my limited time reading. Most books I pick up, I put down after the first few pages. Unless it’s a compelling beginning, I don’t waste my time reading the rest. The day I picked this book up, I’d already started and gave up on five other books. But Never Forgotten…I don’t even remember making the decision to give it a full read. I was simply swept up in the story. Meara is such a relatable, sympathetic main character and my heart went out to her and her terminally ill mother. Evan was the perfect male protagonist—equal parts understanding, sympathetic, and hot. The setting was unforgettable, and described so well that I almost felt as if I were there. In fact, I swear I could literally feel the biting chill coming off the Atlantic Ocean. And I read this in August! This book is paranormal, but light on the fantasy and heavy on the character relationships. I thought it was a perfect balance for this story. I will definitely be picking up the next book in the series. I’m seriously anxious to find out where the author will take us next. Great job, Kelly! You’ve written a beautiful story!
