Review for Reid's Redemption by Sara Celi


Reid's Redemption by   Sara Celi 


Kindle Edition

Published May 25th 2019 by Lowe Interactive Media, LLC


A broken man. A town on its last leg. A love that could warm the coldest of hearts...

For too many years, Reid Powell carried the sins of his family. His father's failed business. His younger brother's drug addiction. An accident that permanently altered the lives of so many in his hometown. Now, their community was crumbling from economic collapse and grief. Hope had faded with the night.

Reid’s heart was as hard as the anger that ran through his town. He had accepted his fate, and given himself over to relentless vilification. There was no other choice.

But the day he found Tarryn Long on his property, light began to trickle into his darkened soul. She was different. Kind. Forgiving. Tempting. To let her in could change his life forever, but could he take that risk?

Could he ever embrace redemption?


My Thoughts…

 Reid and Tarryn, they sound perfect together.  But Reid is living in self exile in the town that he use to love and that loved him back.   Tarryn is back to a town that she only visited from time to time when she would see her father.    Tarryn is the perfect person to pull Reid out of his self-sorrow and bring him back to life.  

 There is a lot happening in this town and somehow it all falls on to the Powell family.   The reason that the town is faltering and the reason that he stays away from town.   Reid feels all that pressure and keeps it all deep inside of himself until Tarryn happens upon his property and awakens feelings that he thought we was well past having.   The attraction is there but beyond that is the feeling that he deserves to be happy, that all the bad things that have happen are not his fault, and that he can help the town come back to the healthy, happy place it use to be.    Nothing is easy but the determination helps make it all happen.   

Tarryn, while there to help her father, sees that the town is in need of help.   She does not know Reid but as she gets to know him and hears the stories, she realizes that he could be just what the town needs and quite possibly what she needs also.   I love her gentle strength, her suggestive powers, and her love of family.  

Reid’s Redemption was a fun story to read.    The storyline was easy to follow and the characters easy to like.  I recommend picking up your own copy.

** I won my copy of the book in a giveaway the author was holding.    The above review is my own thoughts and I received no compensation for sharing it.
