a book in review!

lotus kay smithKay Smith will be on tour October 19-26 with her novel Lotus

Newlywed Lotus Price has everything that she should have ever wanted: a great husband and a dream job as an executive of a prominent Chicago philanthropic foundation. Her life is going exactly as she planned—until she discovers she is pregnant and then unexpectedly encounters her first love. Despite his offer to be friends, Lotus wants to keep the past where it belongs. As the pregnancy begins to interrupt the dream that Lotus envisioned for her marriage, she is forced to rethink everything she thought she knew about her path to this point, including the single day that led her to her husband and away from the man she saw herself spending forever with. Now, as long-buried scars resurface, only time will tell what direction Lotus will take in the future—and who will be willing to give up what they have in order to get what they have always desired?

I received this book in exchange for an honest review. This is one of those stories that just makes sense from the beginning. I don't mean that the sense that the main character has everything figured out, but that the writing is so flawless, it seems seamless. Lotus is an amazing main character and is so well developed as she embarks on her journey. She's one of those characters you feel a connection with. I recommend this 5 star book as a definite book club read and for anyone who needs a page turner in their life! Can't wait for the sequel, xo!
