Hope Breeds Life…
Sometimes destiny and fate have a weird way of reminding us of our inescapable vulnerability, but more importantly our inexorable humanity. Life is fleeting, and what little time we have left in this world, we must make do with what we have, and cherish those whom we love by our side.
Fresh back from the Jackson Reese Press Tour, sports journalist Catalina Pardo rushes back to British Columbia after receiving unexpected and distressing news. With the help of award winning photographer Stryder Martynus, Catalina is determined to prevent the news of tragedy and heartbreak from governing her life again.
Together they will embark on a new journey of introspection to overcome the ghosts and raw emotions of their pasts−on a long and unpredictable road full of complicated circumstances−to find healing, hope and salvation.
The smallest of gifts−like a friendship bracelet−have the power to save your life, and unlike fairy tales, happy endings are seldom guaranteed…

The easy to read writing style makes you forget you have spent an entire novel, in three people’s heads, sharing their dreams and deepest emotions. It’s only when you stop reading and feel emotionally drained, you realise how realistic and beautifully written this story is.
Complex characters are believable and underscore the story’s message of friendship and love. There is laughter, companionship, love and poignant sadness and a multitude of other feelings all seen through the eyes of Catalina, Jackson and Stryder. All three characters have outgoing almost celebrity roles, yet there true personalities hide loss, fear and addictive behaviour from the world.
The vocabulary is contemporary but the friendship, romance and sensuality, timeless. Perfectly paced, there is enough action to hold the interest, without detracting from the characters’ introspection, which is the story’s mainstay.
The love scenes between Catalina and Stryder are sensual but retain the romance and enhance the couple’s deepening feelings for each other. Jackson Reese remains an enigma. I look forward to seeing his character in love.
‘finding Reese’, is an excellent sequel to ‘chasing Reese’. More reflective than the action packed first story in the series, it shows the depth of the characters’ feelings and how being part of a family helps them develop and heal.
I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
