Hey crew check out my review for Kathryn Andrews latest release Blue Horizons
Music is my motivation. I’ve always believed that, because of it, I would be somebody. Somebody to someone, and something to myself.
At age four, I picked up my grandfather’s acoustic guitar and, up until three weeks ago, I’ve never put it down. From a single chord to a full arrangement, music fed my soul. I craved it with every fiber of my being, but now, I just don’t know. That driving force that’s always pushed me has somehow stalled, along with the thrill, the passion, and the familiarity . . . it’s all gone. I’m beginning to worry that my love for music just isn’t enough.
As the summer tour finally comes to an end, I head to the Blue Ridge Mountains instead of returning to Nashville. It’s here that I’ve always been able to lose myself amongst the solitude and the lake, but what I didn’t expect to find was her.
Wild blonde hair, light blue eyes, and a laugh I find myself trying to coax from her has me completely enamored. She’s quiet, incredibly poised, and driven by secrets as big as the mountains around us. They’re what’s made her untouchable, and left me wanting to know more.
Maybe that’s what I need. Maybe I need more. Maybe I need her.
They say that life isn’t about how many breaths we take, but how many moments take our breath away. But what if those moments aren’t filled with happiness and love, but something dark and haunting? For me, it’s those moments that’ve shaped and taken over my life. I can’t change who I am, God knows I’ve tried, and, because of this, I’ve accepted the silver lining . . . I’m alive.
Fifty-two white keys, thirty-six black keys, ten fingers, seven notes, two friends, and one stage. At the piano, on the stage, with my two best friends, I finally found myself, and I live for those moments. One by one, I collect them, cherish them, patiently waiting for the next, until it arrives and changes everything. That’s the moment I meet him.
I became a fan of Kathryn Andrews when I read her Hale Brothers series. I’m definitely remaining a fan after reading BLUE HORIZONS.
Andrews has a way of making my heart smile with her stories. Somehow she manages to maintain a sense of courtship for lack of a better word. Her characters aren’t in love by the end of the first chapter or ripping off their clothes three pages in. It’s almost a sense of old fashioned love where the feelings build and the couple really get to know each other. Don’t get me wrong this isn’t some granny love. There’s a whole lotta sexiness going on through every page turn.
Will Ashton is down home country boy who’s got a ruggedness yet boyishness to him. He’s a gentlemen who will make your heart go pitter patter and your panties melt. He’s sure of himself without being arrogant. He’s talented yet humble. Will Ashton just wants to “Be.”
Avery Layne has been betrayed and hurt in the most unspeakable way. She is extremely guarded. She’s timid. She’s the girl next door who had fairytale dreams. Avery Layne just wants to “Be.”
Together they navigate through circumstance and each other to find out what BE-ing means. I thoroughly enjoyed the build up of their relationship. The twists and snags in Will’s and Avery’s journey were perfect and kept me guessing the whole time. Kathryn Andrews writing style is fresh, light and down to earth. Her stories resonate with the reader. You can always relate to the characters on some level.
BLUE HORIZONS is well written, draws in the reader from the get go and has a great balance of emotions. If you haven’t read a Kathryn Andrews story, give it go. You won’t be disappointed.
