Once, I would never have imagined myself here. But I’m settled now. In a place I love, in a home I renovated, spending time with new friends I adore, and working a job that fulfills me. I am reconciling the past and laying the groundwork for the future.
Then Garrett Frost moves in next door.
He’s obstinate and too bold, a raging force of nature that disrupts the careful order of my life. I recognize the ghosts that haunt him, the torment driving him. Garrett would be risky in any form, but wounded, he’s far more dangerous. I fear I’m too fragile for the storm raging inside him, too delicate to withstand the pain that buffets him. But he’s too determined…and too tempting.
And sometimes hope soars above even the iciest desolation.
I was thrilled to see SDay was releasing something new and Butterfly in Frost didn’t disappoint. It was riveting and emotional and surprising as well. SDay demonstrated her writing prowess, solidifying her spot as one of my favorite authors.
When we meet Teagan we can see she’s suffering but we’re not privy to all the details. She’s made a fresh start in Seattle, has new friends and new routines. However, when she meets Garrett, he turns her newly ordered world on its head and it seems he’s exactly what Teagan needed.
Garrett is also struggling emotionally…and professionally. Meeting Teagan injects the hope and passion his life seemed to be lacking. As we witness Garrett and Teagan get acquainted and see their relationship blossom, we learn about his past…what caused his broken pieces. But Teagan is still closed off. However, it was awe-inspiring to see these two help mend each other, want to be better for the other, work at getting better and being there for each other.
SDay surrounds our couple with good friends, even one we know from a previous series. She also brings to life the Seattle area with vivid descriptions of its sights and sounds. While only a novella, with Butterfly in Frost SDay delivers an emotionally charged and compelling story. I was wholly satisfied and I’m eager for more from her.
