Broken Pieces by Kelsie Blanton

Broken Pieces

(From Goodreads)
Losing the love of your life is one of the hardest things a person can experience. Losing the love of your life in an automobile accident that you walked away from is even harder. 

When everything in her life falls apart, Allie Combs is left to slowly piece it back together. In a matter of just a few hours, her life hits rock bottom, and the only person she has to help her through it is her best friend, Macy Philips.

Going on a journey around the world, Allie will learn much about herself. Will she finally let go of the guilt that has consumed her since the accident and live life to the fullest? Can she put the pieces of her life back together and still remember her love’s smile?

My Review:

I loved Kelsie Blanton’s book, Broken Pieces. First let me start by reviewing the cover, since covers are my thing. What stood out was the young lady with her beautiful green eyes staring at me. I could not tell what her expression was. Was she happy? Was she sad? All I know was that her eyes were beckoning me to find out more and that her story was going to captivate me. Let me just say, her eyes did not lie.

Author Kelsie Blanton packed such a powerful and emotional story in less than 100 pages. At the end I was left saying “Wow! How did she do that?”

She introduces us to Allie Combs and by page 4 you are totally vested in Allie’s story and her journey to try and heal. Blanton made it easy for the reader to feel like you are part of Allie’s quest to figure out if it is possible to move forward after such a tragic loss. 

Then you meet her best friend Macy Phillips. I fell in love with Macy because Blanton made this character so loveable and wanting more of her. 

Macy holds Allie’s hand as she attempts her first baby-steps to heal and the reader can feel Macy’s struggle when she watches her best friend fall time and time again from such a tragedy to when Macy has to decide if it’s time to let go of Allie’s hand so that Allie can try and find her own way, while always being there to support Allie and be her rock, should she need it.

We watch Allie struggle with coping with a future without the person she loves and trying to figure out if it is worth moving forward when the past was so great. Her story leaves you whispering to the book, "you can do it."

Blanton gives the reader such a great emotional story that will keep you turning the pages. Warning: A box of tissues is suggested, trust me it is totally worth it!

I cannot wait to see what else Blanton has in store for her readers.

Broken Pieces is without a doubt a HOT- Page Turner!!!!
