WHY I READ IT
The blurb really stood out and I needed to know more.
WHAT I RATED IT
WHAT IT’S ABOUT
If faced with your worst fear, what would you do? Would you run or would you fight?
Camryn Hamilton is a fighter.
A thirty-something mother of two, Camryn appears to have it all: a husband, plenty of money, and children she adores. When she returns home to spend Christmas with her family, her perfect world she has created begins to crumble, thrusting her face to face with the only man who truly knows her.
Holden Patrick will fight harder.
A powerful, handsome attorney, Holden left town after his adoptive parents’ death. In his time away he almost managed to forget the girl who ran away with his heart. At least until a turn of fate brought him back to Mantoloking, and back to Camryn.
But are they willing to fight for each other?
Faced with a tragic past that they both wanted to forget, they struggle to protect their hearts from being broken again. Will their love be enough to get them through another tragedy, or will they close themselves off and run away again?
Camryn Hamilton and Holden Patrick have been best friends and neighbors since they were little kids. After sharing a magical kiss, they both realized their friendship had been elevated to the next level.
“ ‘I guess this changes things for us,’ he had said quietly as he pressed his forehead against mine with his eyes looking up at me through his long, dark eyelashes.
‘I guess it does,’ I answered, knowing I didn’t need to say anything more.”
Thus began a relationship that all felt was unbreakable…. Until one night when Camryn’s idyllic life was shattered.
The story unfolds over a series of time, which I loved. I prefer when relationships build in books and don’t become instant overnight. A real relationship takes work, and S.P. Cervantes recognized that and allows the story unfold slowly and organically. Dust to Dust was not without its mysteries and plot twists. It all came together well and you felt as if you were along on this ride with Cam and Holden. I am a sucker for second-chance love stories and this one delivered!
“We were both broken Camryn, and I know that scares you. But we can still have the fairy tale.”
