It's a love story, but you could tell that from the cover art, right? This book makes me smile just trying to describe it. The characters are strong, vivid people you can easily imagine. The tension of knowing that Eden and Jace are going to end up together, but not seeing how it's going to happen because they're so different and don't like each other at all makes the story suspenseful.
Parts of it are sad, parts of it are funny, but all in all, this was a great read for a cold winter's day, since it's centered around the world of hockey.
You know how sometimes you get the same "theme" or message from several different sources in your life? Call it the Law of Attraction, or God trying to get your attention, or whatever you want, but here again, I find myself picking up the theme, Why do bad things happen to good people? I liked the conversation between Jace and Eden's dad, John, where he talks about blessings from ashes and discovering what was seeded in the fire. (If you're interested, there actually are certain trees that only sprout after a fire, learn why here.)
This book will make you smile. It may make you cry. And hopefully, it will make you register to be an organ donor. I know Sam and Maddy's story made me want to double check my license for that telltale pink dot.
I loved the way there were several different threads going within the story line. I felt made the book more multifaceted. This was a worthwhile read, and I'll be looking for more books by Susan May Warren next time we make it to the library.
