    Stunning and beautiful!

    So, let me preface this by saying I do not cry often. Now with that being said, the reason I bawled was because of a line in the book that hit me so hard in the heart and gut that I lost it. I felt it rock me on a personal level that words can honestly not express for everything I have gone through to get where I am. “Sometimes, it takes life breaking apart for it to get you where you’re truly meant to be” Catherine Cowles writes these stunning, heartfelt, earth shattering stories that grip you so hard that you get lost down the rabbit hole that she created. I honestly cannot say enough about this story that doesn’t make me into a blubbering fool for loving it so much! The one thing I adore about Cowles stories is that she writes these characters that have flaws. Both him and her. To me that makes these books so much more real and with this story, she gave us such a raw and powerful look into such a tough subject. Tessa is such a soft soul that has gone through unspeakable things. Liam, with all his fame, realizes that some things can get out of control. These two mend each other as the story progresses and how they feed off of each other to make themselves whole. But they hold each other up to fight everything that is thrown at them. The way these two play off of each other and how it took Liam to get her to open up was utterly stunning. Then with all the turmoil that follows them both, I was blown away at how these two fought together! I have to say the one thing that really got me about this book was how honest and real it was. Everything that Tessa went through makes you want to hold her and just tell her things are going to be okay. Liam is such a giving soul and I loved his approach to her to win her over. There is just something about the fluidity and the sheer brilliance of flow that Cowles has in her story that makes you beg for more. The romance, the suspense and the angst. This one is such a slow burn but in such a way that you will devour each and every word. Cowles hit it out of the ball park with this one. If you have not picked up her books, I beg you to do so. She has become one of my go to authors that I can reread over and over again.

    A MUST READ

    WOW! Just WOW! This book was everything! I was enraptured from the very beginning. This story is about Liam and Tessa. Their story was beautifully written with all the feels! I just loved their friendship and the buildup to their relationship. Liam was so gentle, patient and understanding. Tessa was so brave and strong. If you haven't read Catherine Cowles yet, get on it! She's a definite MUST READ author!

    I'm left beautifully broken...

    Beautifully Broken Life is the 2nd book in the Sutter Lake Series and each book is better than the last. Liam Fairchild, first introduced in Further to Fall, is a world-renowned rockstar running from the consequences of his fame and trying to find his love for music again. While hiding out in Sutter Lake to be near his friend Taylor, Liam meets Tessa and is instantly drawn to her. Tessa is on the run from her abusive ex-fiancé who she only escaped thanks to the help of a close friend. Armed with a new identity and a few essentials, Tessa attempts to start over in the small town of Sutter Lake, but the overwhelming anxiety and constant fear of discovery have caused Tessa to remain isolated from close relationships. When Tessa's love as a baker at The Tea Kettle meets Liam's addiction to baked goods the two strike up a tentative friendship that slowly becomes more. While Liam attempts to get Tessa to open up she inadvertently begins to unblock his musical stalemate and the two attempt to heal each other with love and understanding. Catherine Cowles is such an incredible author and I have yet to make it through one of her books without crying a river. She has the ability to immerse you so intensely into her stories that you can't help but feel every emotional bump along the road along with her characters. It's easy to identify with the struggles of her characters and root for their successes as though they were yours. I highly recommend you pick up your copy ASAP because you won't want to miss this incredibly moving story about the healing powers of love. I received an advanced reader copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Beautifully Broken Life: Liam and Tessa

    OMG this book....I can't even put into words how this story made me feel. Liam and Tessa's story was everything and I loved everything about it. Just when I didn't think she could top the first book in the Sutter Lake series....she not only did so but cinched the top spot as my number one read of 2019 with this phenomenal story. From the very first page I was drawn in and hooked....I devoured it in hours. I was absolutely consumed with all things Liam and Tessa....I couldn't put it down. I knew that Tessa's story would break my heart and it did....absolutely shattered it. The things that she has been through, she is constantly on guard always looking over her shoulder. Swore that she would never let anyone in again especially a man. She didn't count on Liam being there to knock down those carefully constructed walls and to be the man that she can count on and trust with her heart. Liam has his own demons to battle, tired of the LA life and the music scene he just wants to go back to his roots and make the kind of music he wants on his own terms. He knew that Tessa was someone special and that he would be the man she needs to make her feel safe again. I adored how patient, kind, selfless, and tender Liam was with Tessa. He won me over with his big loving heart. Liam was so good for Tessa and Tessa for Liam. She needed Liam as much as he needed Tessa. This was such a beautifully written story one that I highly recommend to all. I am a huge fan of this author and with every book she writes....it just keeps getting better and better and she has definitely a forever fan in me. I can't wait for the next book in this phenomenal series. Another 5 star book from this talented author....well done!!!!

    Liam and Tessa are everything!

    I loved the 1st book on this series. I loved all the characters and couldn’t wait to get my hands on some more and this book did not disappoint. Tessa’s story is just so heartbreaking and sadly realistic. She is so brave but she isn’t living, that is until Liam. Liam shows her what she is missing in her life and finally gives her the courage to face her monster and stop hiding. I am really so in love with these characters and the town I cannot wait to read Jensen and Tuck’s story. As a side note the audio for this book is phenomenal. Maxine Mitchell is my favorite female narrator and does a spectacular job as does Aaron Shedlock
