This was a beautiful story about love, friendship, grief, second chances and new beginnings. This story is obviously written from the heart and I can’t resist that! Devney Perry’s writing is superb, crisp, deep, emotional, and truly everything I look for in the books I read. The characters are vibrant, and they feel like sensible people with real worries and expectations.
“Tragic” is the story of two kindred spirits with similar broken hearts connecting on a deep level. It is a story that shows that a true family are those you choose, the ones that are always there for you no matter what.
Piper Campbell has moved to charming and idyllic Lark Cove to come to terms with the end of her marriage. She is Logan Kendrick’s assistant and his family are her favorite people. She is intrigued by her grouchy, brawny and yet so sexy neighbor, Kaine Reynolds. Kaine has gotten used to living alone and he dreads the idea of company.
The romance between Piper and Kaine came about slowly, but I really enjoyed reading about their growing relationship. At first, both of them fool themselves into thinking the relationship is short-term and nothing serious. Kaine allows Piper to feel for the first time in months, she finds peace with him. Kaine comes across as cold and silent. He has done his best to shut out everything from his past, but he is a man of passion. He is an artist and no woman has ever come between him and his craft, until Piper. While their love affair was not without a few bumps along the way and they had to learn to trust each other with their past, you could feel the love and obvious connection that these two characters had.
This really is a fantastic series built around a solid group of characters and I love it. The best thing about this series is that you come to know the characters so well. I highly recommend this book and the entire Lark Cove series!
