Just an Illusion – EP is book three in The Illusion Series
She warned us. Literally:
Warning – Per the request of The B Side reader group. Please have wine, tissues, and chocolate in hand. I’m pretty sure if you’ve read The B Side this is a given, but I’m my due diligence by extending a warning.
And even after that warning, and having read The B Side and crying my eyes out at the end, she did it again. We let the woman do it to us AGAIN. I read the fist three chapters in sobs, but the tears were bitter sweet as we learned that Mel and the baby survived the bus crash, only to have her world ripped apart again.
Now set two years after the tour ending/bus crash Mel recounts her memories with the help of the band mates that witnessed everything. We are taken into such a deep grasp of emotions, you’ll find yourself not able to breath at times. I knew I could have finished this book in one night (as I have the others) but I had to put it down several times just to process not only what Mel was feeling, but what I was feeling as well. I can relate to one of the death’s of the book, a friend taken too soon, and all those emotions of from the moment I found out she was gone, to the nights crying myself to sleep all came rushing back.
I have to admit something I first considered a flaw (the length of Mel’s recovery) was actually something that readers need and authors need not fear to write. We are reminded of several life lessons, especially no one can tell you how to grieve or when it needs to end.
I normally post coffee cups as ratings but for this one folks you’re gonna need at least three boxes of tissue. #truth
