Eeek, I finally get to share my review of “Never Say Goodbye” by Sarah Grace Grzy!
About the Book
They say time heals all wounds. But he was finding it a poor painkiller.
Tyler Collens has seen grief and loss in his years of experience as a paramedic—but he never expected it to touch his life in such a personal way. The death of his wife eighteen months ago shook his steady world and changed him in more ways than he can count. Time and routine have steadied his feet, and he looks toward the future as he raises his infant daughter—but the past has a tighter grip on him than he knows.
Alyvia Emmerson has never been certain of who she is or where she belongs. Her dad’s abandonment as a teen broke a fragile piece of her heart, but ten years later, she has moved on. Living on her own, she at last has a project to devote herself to: revitalizing a shabby bookstore. But she didn’t count on her dream job revealing the shattered pieces of herself she thought mended long ago.
In this sophomore novel featuring beloved characters from Live Without You, Sarah Grace Grzy explores themes of grief, hope, and second chances in a story that touches both the heart and spirit.
Since I first read Sarah Grace Grzy’s “Live Without You” I have been waiting for her next book. Waiting, and waiting, and waiting, it felt like.
Finally, a year or so later, I got my copy in the mail, I fell in love with “Never Say Goodbye” with every mention in Sarah Grace Grzy’s newsletter and social media. Murrae’s sweet attitude only increased in the whole book. The cover, oh my, is it beautiful! If I didn’t already love everything about “Never Say Goodbye” this would have been enough to make it a top favorite contemporary romance.
Honestly, I am so in love with this book. Tyler was a big plus in “Live Without You” and I love that he got his own book.
What I didn’t expect was all of the emotions this book gave off, it is crazy how sad, grief-filled, loving, and lonely Tyler was and how Alyvia was so uncertain, sweet, and somewhat lost and they met and just went together naturally, there was no force behind their romance. It was so sweet!
The bookstore. Ah. I want a bookstore just like Alyvia’s!
For a sophomore novel, this is an incredible piece of beauty, I hope that there will be another novel from Grzy as she has a way with words that pulls you in with every page. And I’d love to know more about a certain doctor, just sayin’, just sayin’. 😉
This journey to finding you don’t have to let go of the past to have a future is perfection! You need to check it out if only for the darlingness of Murrae and Toper, the two cuties make the book so adorable.
I voluntarily received and reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the author. All views expressed are only my honest opinion.
Sarah Grace Grzy is a voracious reader, and if it weren’t for this crazy thing called ‘Life,’ she’d be tempted to spend all her days in front of a wood stove, book in one hand, coffee mug in the other. A lover of learning, she finds enjoyment in many things and has more hobbies than she knows what to do with. Sarah Grace is a freelance web and graphic designer, and when not working, spending time with her ever-growing family, or reading, she can be found painting, playing the piano, or fangirling with her sisters and friends. Sarah Grace inhabits the State of Great Lakes, and wouldn’t want to live anywhere else—unless it meant she could have a baby penguin, in which case, she’d gladly move to the South Pole.
