ignite a love that lasts a lifetime.
Milo Phillips knows the meaning of pain. Suffering through the most intense physical agony of his life, he’s confined to a hospital bed to
bear it alone. More than once, he wishes he’d died in the explosion that melted
and mangled his skin. Darkness consumes him, snuffing all the joy in his life
and leaving an empty hole in its place.
But one day, a flicker of light sneaks into his hospital
room, driving away some of the hopelessness. For the first time in months, pain isn’t all he feels.
The flicker’s name is Sara Foster, his new nurse. Milo just
hopes that Sara can see past his scars. Because underneath, his heart has begun
beating again just for her.
As a longtime fan of author Devney Perry, I always get excited when I see that a new book is coming our way. Although I love all of her books, when it’s part of a beloved series, a new release is even more special, because I get to revisit the places and characters that I know and love. With the release of THE CANDLE PALACE, Devney brings her Jamison Valley series to a close, and she couldn’t have picked a better book to end with.
I absolutely adore Sara and Milo. Talk about Fate putting two people together that really need each other. Sara is light to Milo during his darkest days, and, when roles reverse, he is her strength when she really needs it, allowing her to find her voice and to stand as a woman unafraid to speak her truth. Devney has a way with words, breathing a life into her stories that make them heartfelt and relatable. I experienced every emotion, Milo’s pain, then determination, Sara’s sadness, then joy. There is nothing about this story and these characters that I did not love, and their story was ‘unputdownable.’
An easy 4.5 stars, THE CANDLE PALACE is a welcome addition to these books that have become some of my favorites. Although it can be read as a standalone, if you haven’t read the rest of the series, now is the perfect time. These books will find a special place in your heart, I guarantee.
