RESURRECTING PHOENIX by Isabel Lucero

Anniversaries are usually occasions worth celebrating, but when your fourth wedding anniversary is also the first anniversary of your husband’s death, you’ll only want to drink your sorrows away. And that’s exactly what Phoenix Nightingale does.
In the small town of Breckshire Wyoming, everybody knows everybody, so when Evan Tyler walks into the same bar she’s drowning her grief in, Phoenix knows that he’s new in town. What she doesn’t know is that he’s just moved in a few houses down from her and is about to try his hardest to break through the wall she’s had up for a year.
Phoenix has experienced a tragedy that nobody ever wants to experience. In the year following her husband’s death, she’s had what her parent’s considered embarrassing public meltdowns, and lost some friends along with her career. Just as she feels she’s at her very lowest, Evan barges into her life, forcing her to get out of the house and look at life a little differently.
He vows to help her, encouraging her to rise from the ashes and live once again. Evan doesn’t know that just by being in her life, he’s bound to send her into a tailspin, because both of them are keeping things from each other, and Phoenix may not be strong enough to handle what she finds out.
Will she pull him into the dark with her, or will he be able to resurrect Phoenix, freeing her from the depths of her depression, and show her that surviving isn’t the same as living?

Second Chance at Happiness

★★★★✩

After reading a couple of this author's darker reads, I was happy to see that I could enjoy her lighter writing as well. This story was about loss and pain, hope and forgiveness, acceptance and second chances. Phoenix lost her husband too early and it broke her. The once happy girl became a damaged woman. Alcohol provided her her only solace and she shunned everyone because they couldn't possibly understand what she was going through. When Evan moves in down the street, an unlikely friendship develops. This man drew her out, showed her understanding, and slowly drew her out of the ashes. I loved Evan so much. He was so sensitive and patient with Phoenix and the perfect hero for her new happily ever after. This story was low on angst, high on feels, and sweetly romantic.
