Broken Dreams - Blog Tour and Giveaway
A lifetime ago, Maggie Alexander’s parents narrowly missed medaling in the Olympics as pairs figure skaters. Now a coach, her father Gordon is living his dreams through the skaters he trains—until Maggie is forced to deliver heartbreaking news: her mother’s battle against cancer will be a losing one. Shattered, her father loses his dreams in an instant—his beloved wife and his will to coach. Left to pick up the pieces, a devastated Maggie finds herself relying on the steadfast support of her childhood best friend, Lance Whitmore.
Despite the fact that Maggie has never seen Lance as more than a friend, his heart has always been hers. Lance does what he can to help Maggie work through her grief, and soon their friendship blossoms into love. But when distance threatens their relationship, Maggie is torn between building a life with the man she loves and helping her broken father rebuild his life.
Every so often, all I need is a really good Novella. Make it a part of a series and I get some extra information and a good quick read. This one does not disappoint. And if you have read any of Traci Hunter Abramson's other books, you might even recognize a character or two.
I loved learning more about Gordon and his daughter and their emotional journey after losing his wife to cancer. I couldn't even fathom how I would be affected by such a loss. The length of the of the book does nothing to detract from the emotional impact and journey of the book.
Maggie and Lance's story was all it should be as well. I look forward to seeing them appear in future stories. I can't wait for the next book in this series.
I was given an eARC by the publisher and this is my honest review.
