PRETTY LITTLE PIECES by Carmen Schober, Reviewed by Kim #ReleaseDay

Carmen Schober’s debut novel, After She Falls, was one of my top reads last year, so I have been really looking forward to reading Pretty Little Pieces. Then when I saw that our hero is an ex-sniper, my anticipation ramped up even more!

In fact, Cassidy ended up being my favorite character in this story. He was always kind, helpful and understanding. I liked him and Georgina together as a couple and I loved how he answered Georgina’s tough Biblical questions. His answers were straightforward and easy to follow for someone who, while she believed in God, wasn’t following Him. There were some great secondary characters in this story too. I also thought Georgina’s character growth was well done. I would’ve liked more completion on some of their stories.

From the premise of the story, you might be thinking that this is a fun, light romance, but it is not. It has several heavier themes including alcoholism, miscarriage, light drug use, and loss of a spouse. That being said, I never felt like this story got too heavy or weighed down. I would’ve liked a bit more focus on Georgina’s show and her renovations though.

BackCover Blurb:
Ambitious influencer Georgina Havoc and her designer beau Lance Broussard have been dubbed the next Chip and Joanna Gaines, but their happily-ever-after falls apart when Lance blindsides her with a "pause." The show must go on, so Georgina takes on the task of renovating a forgotten cottage in the tiny, tight-knit town of Tarragon, Tennessee on her own.

Georgina has a plan to save her relationship--and her show--but a surprise drop-in from her troubled twin sister makes things extra messy. That, and the presence of rugged ex-sniper Cassidy Stokes, who throws a wrench in all her plans.

As she salvages her shattered life, will Georgina retreat to the familiar or embrace a new design?
