Awakening Avery by Laurie Lewis was the complete package. I can honestly say this book had me hooked from page one.
Avery has written a few books and has recently lost her husband. Herself and her children have been devastated. She decides she needs to go spend the summer somewhere else to find herself. She ends up switching homes with another widow who she has seen many times before while on vacation.
Nice and simple right? Well the temporary switch is anything but simple. Gabriel is basically kicking his two daughters out of the house for the summer. Giving them a dose of tough love. He has sheltered them and they are both grown women who need to learn not to depend on Daddy.
Avery introduces Gabriel to an author’s books that she says was her mentor. Gabriel was hooked from the beginning. There are so many characters in this book and they all end up intertwined.
This really was a great read that will leave you have a happy, sweet feeling and it will also have you nearly in tears at times. A book you do not want to skip over.
