    Highly recommend this book!

    Avery moved to a new state to start again. Not expecting to find love again. Avery and Jesse find a second chance at love with each other after both having their hearts broken by other people. Avery is a strong woman. She doesn't want to be defined by a man. She is brave to defy her parents, leave a nice job, and strike out on her own. She doesn't NEED Jesse but he complements her and you can't get much better than that! Highly recommend this book! I couldn't put it down because I connected with the characters and wanted to know what happened with Avery! Reviewed by: Alexis B.

    Well paced and relevant

    Favorite Quotes: He, like the elderly women, is also wearing rather tight yoga pants—except his are leopard print. To go with his leopard print pants, he’s picked out a black muscle tank that is leaving very little to the imagination—not that I would have really wanted to imagine his hairy chest anyway. I try not to stare at his pecs, nipples out and all, as I offer a polite grin. I don’t say anything, not really sure how to respond to a man twice my age who has just used the word “electrifying.” Jodie exhales with a little snort… Yoga is not only an epic disaster. It’s going to be epically disturbing. Oh my God, you’re reprehensible. Both of you. What, are you both a hundred? You do know that at an adult sleepover, you’re not actually supposed to sleep, right? I’ve never been the woman from the movies—the one who walks seductively in her dress that clings in all the right places, her eyes screaming confidence and sexual energy. I’m usually the girl who walks like a clomping goat in high heels and who has no sense of fashion. I’m the kind of girl who can’t pull off the serious photo face, and usually ends up looking constipated. My Review: Inked Hearts provided a realistic premise with real-life issues, an engaging storyline, and adorable and endearing characters. The story developed gradually, as did the character’s confidence and new sense of identity after hitting reset and starting over at age twenty-eight. This was a character-driven story, which I tend to savor and the talented Ms. Detwiler does so very well. I appreciated the lack of contrived conflict and formulaic tropes. The story was easy to follow, relevant, entertaining, inspiring, and could very well be happening in any community. Avery thought her marriage was forever and solid - until she found out in the most humiliating and humbling manner possible that it wasn’t. There are few among us that after suffering a major set-back have not had the urge to remake ourselves and start afresh, where no one knows of your background, teenaged escapades, family shame, school struggles, unsightly acne, choice of prom date, childhood embarrassments, etc. I did it and highly recommend it, the only problem being that you have to bring yourself along, damn - there is always a catch… Avery quit her job, packed up her car and massive dog, ditched her pencil skirts and kitten-heeled shoes, found a roommate and apartment online, fled the controlling strings of her uptight family, and moved a state away with only a few other rather sketchy personal plans. Pretty brave stuff. I enjoyed watching Avery gradually open herself up to change, take risks, battle her self-doubt, silence the voice of her ex-husband in her head, and begin to blossom and finally realize she has found her footing. Avery fell into and navigated through alternative routes she would have least expected and were as surprising to her as her newfound love of fried pickles; which is a dish I must now track down and sample.

    Hope...

    The beginning starts out with a bang of broken hearts and cause for a change for Avery. Her mastiff, Henry, manages to keep her afloat when she just wants to drown. "One hundred miles until I start fresh with new people, with a new town, with a new life. Only Henry knows my past, and I don’t think he’s telling anyone anything." The breathe of fresh air does wonders for her. However it is a certain someone who is a game changer... "With him, I want to be me but braver. With him, I have more fun. With him, I feel like I’m exactly who I’m supposed to be." I seriously need a Jesse. Gah swoon! He makes you wish for a fairytale for them both. "Love isn’t always permanent, and the ink can fade." I think may favorite part of this novel is that the message the reader gets from these words.... Hope.... It must be said that fried pickles make this novel stand out!!
