BOOK PROMO & REVIEW - Come Away with Me by Karma Brown




Title: Come Away With Me
Author: Karma Brown
Publication date: 25 August 2015


Synopsis


One minute, Tegan Lawson has everything she could hope for: an adoring husband, Gabe, and a baby on the way. The next, a patch of black ice causes a devastating accident that will change her life in ways she never could have imagined.


Tegan is consumed by grief, not to mention her anger toward Gabe, who was driving on the night of the crash. But just when she thinks she's hit rock bottom, Gabe reminds her of their Jar of Spontaneity, a collection of their dream destinations and experiences, and so begins an adventure of a lifetime.


From the bustling markets of Thailand to the flavors of Italy to the ocean waves in Hawaii, Tegan and Gabe embark on a journey to escape the tragedy and search for forgiveness. But they soon learn that grief follows you no matter how far away you run, and that acceptance comes when you least expect it. 


Heartbreaking, hopeful and utterly transporting, Come Away with Me is an unforgettable debut and a luminous celebration of the strength of the human spirit.

Trish's rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Heartbreaking, Captivating and Adventurous stars

Come Away With Me just blew me away.

This beautiful love story between Tegan and Gabe is perfectly breathtaking, tragic and painful, adventurous.

Karma Brown takes you on a powerful emotional journey. One that starts with a devastating loss and the struggle to get it together to a story of finding your way back to each other through an adventure of a lifetime.

How does one recover from an overwhelming loss? How does a couple stay together after such heartbreak?
This story is a beautiful story of discovering yourself within a marriage once again. Finding a way back to one another. The struggles, the heartache, the happiness, the adventure. You will feel for them, you will cry with them and laugh with them.

The details of this story are so vivid. Karma Brown leaves nothing to the imagination. She writes in delicate detail which will leave you transported to that place and time.

I will say that the twist at the end left me shattered. I still can’t believe it.

Totally surprised by this author, this story. A great debut novel. One you should read for yourself.
Definitely a Must Read.

Thank you to Harlequin Australia for providing and advanced reading copy for review.
