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.

Revelry is the first Kandi Steiner book I’ve read. It may not have blown me away, but I enjoyed it.

Following a painful divorce, Wren retreats to a cabin in a small mountain town for the summer. She is a fashion designer, and her goal is to rediscover herself and find inspiration for her upcoming clothing collection. Anderson is her antisocial neighbor who is living with overwhelming guilt. The last thing either of them is looking for is romantic relationship, but sometimes life has other plans.

I have a soft spot for damaged main characters that find healing while falling in love, and this story delivers the goods on that front. Wren and Anderson are two compassion people, and they definitely have a spark between them. I just found the plot to be a little too predictable.

The townspeople definitely add warmth and interest to the story. Mama Von, in particular, is delightful with her huge heart and sage advice.

Revelry doesn’t have angst or huge plot twists, which suited my mood just fine. Having recently finished a super intense book, I was happy to relax with this sweet romance.
