Review - Love Left Behind by Willow Davis

Cassie has it all: great friends, a loving boyfriend. The perfect life. Until, on the day he proposes, James is brutally murdered in a break-in gone wrong. Suddenly, her perfect life is filled with hushed conversations and stares laden with pity. Nothing is forgotten in her small town. In an effort to leave her past behind, she packs up and moves across the country to sunny Southern California. A new, fresh start where no one knows about James or her life with him.

Joel has had his share of heartbreak. Diana was the love of his life and losing her changed him forever. Despite his friends' many tries, he isn't ready to move past the friend boundary with any of the girls he is set-up with. That is, until he meets Cassie; she makes him feel things he isn't ready to face. When tragedy strikes and Cassie is forced to face her demons in her home state, Joel accepts the friend role and tags along.

But, someone is angry that Cassie left her life and everyone in it behind.

Together, can Joel and Cassie find out who wants her dead, and both make it out alive?

Sav's 4 Star Review

Lord have mercy, what a debut! Willow Davis completely blew me away with her first novel.

Cassie suffered a great loss. She was being held captive by her past and she never thought she could fully escape. She moved on from the death of her fiance but it still haunted her every night. 

Joel was almost Cassie's kindred spirit. He knew exactly what Cassie was going through because he too had suffered a great loss during a freak accident where his fiance was never seen again.

Both of them have this attraction but both are afraid to fully commit to another relationship. The fear of loss was stronger than the need for companionship so they simply agreed to be just friends.

I won't reveal anything else about the book because believe me when I tell you, alot is about to happen. 

Willow did not go light on the angst. She had my stomach in knots the majority of the book. Many times I asked myself, who could it be, why would they do this, and what the hell is going on?

This is a mysterious novel that will keep you on the edge of your seat and second guessing yourself. It's full of gasp out loud moments.

Go on and click this story about new beginnings and be prepared to be wow-ed! But please buckle up and get ready for the ride of your life.
