Sandy’s 4 Blush Review
My mind was saying NO! Don’t do it. Please don’t do it! Then I thought wow this is a train wreck but I can’t stop reading. The first chapter, which is aptly titled “Worst Terrible F***-up” caught my attention, then it chugged along for a bit, quickly picked up speed, before winding up for a BIG finish. If you’ve never read Kelly Siskind before, I’m pointing this out so that you will continue reading – it will be worth it.
Gwen Hamilton’s birthday is ground zero for that WTF-up night. A huge misunderstanding leads to a situation where people who are using each other, end up hurting others and themselves. Best friends that should have transitioned into more but for that one disastrous night. Gwen’s mother, Mary, dies which sets events in motion and though it seems impossible, August Cruz, the love of her life, who she thought forever lost to her, is somehow standing on her doorstep.
9 & 36 – Nine years since that night. Thirty-Six hours before August gets on a plane back to Germany. Thirty six hours in which to deliver news Gwen has been waiting her whole life to hear. Even after all the time that has passed, a glance is all takes to reignite old feelings. It’s not all a love fest. These two immediately go at it dredging up all the ghost from their past.
August has a little secret. Gwen’s mother before dying wrote him a letter with information he should have shared with Gwen. Why didn’t Mary just talk to her own daughter? Their relationship was contentious, verbally and mentally abusive. Maybe faced with her own mortality she tried to course correct her daughter with her lost love?
Preposterous as it may seem, Greyhound delivers a lost suitcase. Seventeen years too late! Turns out to be a treasure trove of information – including a diary that gives Gwen a whole different view of her mother. Who was this young woman? The one full of love, hopes, dreams, that lived to dance and had a heart full of joy? Sadly, Gwen never knew her. Within these pages must be the information Gwen so desperate needs.
The identity of Gwen’s father and how Mary’s life evolved is a compelling mystery engagingly woven through Licks that serves to move this love story forward. Will solving it be enough to bring these two together? Will August come clean before it’s too late? Can Gwen and August forgive each other and heal their hearts? As so often is the case, things are not as they seem.
Licks is a perfect beach read, summer read, chick read, whatever you want to call it, enjoyable kind of read that does not disappoint.
