This use to be on my old book review blog and since that blog is no longer active, I am moving the posts here. I love supporting other authors.
***Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book to review.***
The Light of Day is a beautiful story of two completely broken people who find a way to accept one another and help in the healing process. I got sucked in to the character driven story and just hated to let them go when I hit the final page. I laughed with Cora and Jake and I cried with them. It takes a special kind of story to tug at my heart and make me feel so much with the characters and this is just such a story.
I rooted for the characters to get together throughout the story and cheered when they finally did. Once I got into the heart of the story, I couldn’t put the book down. Jake and Cora find solace in each other during a time when both are at a crossroads. Cora is one year sober fighting to stay that way, while Jake is fighting to get his pitching arm back after a serious surgery. Neither know what tomorrow will hold, but both are willing to find out together.
When they were nearing the inevitable end of their time together my heart broke for them and the unspoken words they both feared saying. It was so gut-wrenching to witness their last night together. Kristen Kehoe really knows how to pull the emotions from the reader. To find out how the story ends and go on the heart wrenching ride with Jake and Cora, you will have to read the book.
I give this book 5 stars and highly recommend it if you are looking for a great character driven story.
