“A freak ski accident brings nineteen-year old Mia Kinney within minutes of death. Hurt and scared, Mia is calmed by the southern drawl and clear green eyes of her rescuer.
Twenty-one year old Dylan Blackburn is one of the first Ski Patrol members on the scene. As his patient is airlifted to the local trauma center, he can’t shake her from his thoughts.
As Mia fights for her life, Dylan, is haunted by the blond hair beauty, and knows he needs to make sure she’s going to be okay.
With a troubled past Dylan has vowed never to completely open himself up to another girl, but Mia continues to knock down every wall he’s constructed. When his past arrives at his front door and threatens once again someone that he loves, will Dylan be able to save Mia yet again? Or will he be too late this time?
A story of love, friendship, and the determination to turn a horrible experience into something worthwhile.
“A Healing Spirit” is book 2 of the Riverview Series, however each is a standalone story.”
**Thank you so much Melissa for providing a review copy of your book in exchange of an honest review
First things first, I realized right after reading the second book of the Riverview series that MAH likes to entail accidents in her stories. People, believe it or not, I find it fetching. Why? I don’t even know.
This will be a different kind of review because I don’t actually liked the book and the phasing of the story.
WHAT I LOVED:
•The medical terms, you’re a genius Melissa! You got me scrolling through Google just to know the meaning of those.
•The only part that caught my interest and made me feel something (intensity) was when Mia and Jolene were kidnapped by Dylan’s father.
REASONS WHY I HATED THE BOOK
•The Setting, almost half of the story happened at the hospital where Mia was confined.
•How can someone kiss a stranger? Not a total one, but gosh Mia you don’t even know him!
•The story happened real quick, one minute Mia and Dylan both can’t stop thinking about each other, next moment they’re kissing and talking about Dylan’s horrific past.
•The ending of the story didn’t quite satisfy me as a reader. It ended so fast.
