Review by Courtney
“I felt bad for trying to live a happy, full life, while my heart was buried in a dead man’s chest.” -Crashing Back Down
In Crashing Back Down, Mags McManus is trying to find herself and get past the grief of losing her husband, Randy, after a tragic military accident. The book is a whirlwind of emotion as Mags attempts to get past her own guilt and heartache and move on with her life without regret. Walker is Randy’s best friend. He is there for Mags as they support one another in their grief. Their own relationship begins to develop, but the regret and feeling of deceiving Randy plague Mags. It’s a captivating story of loss, love and emerging from the darkest hours in a person’s life. My heart broke for Mags and her own suffering. Then in a moment, it all comes Crashing Back Down. It is a cliffhanger, but I cannot wait to see what happens next. I give this story 4 books.
