Review ~ Midnight Lily by Mia Sheridan

Book Description:

Holden Scott is the prince of professional football. At least he was before he lost it all . . . or more to the point, before he threw it all away. Now he's out of a job, out of the public's good graces, and perhaps just a little out of his mind. So when a friend offers up his remote lodge in the wilds of Colorado, giving Holden some time away to get his life back on track, he can hardly say no. The last thing he expects is to see a beautiful girl in the woods—one wearing a white, lace dress who appears in the moonlight, and leaves no footprints behind. Is she a dream? A ghost? A product of his muddled imagination? Or something entirely different?

Midnight Lily is the haunting love story of two lost souls reaching for each other in the dark. A tale of healing, acceptance, and the worlds we create to protect our own hearts. It is a story of being lost, of being found, and of being in the place between.

THIS IS A STAND-ALONE SIGN OF LOVE NOVEL, INSPIRED BY VIRGO. Non-Paranormal, New Adult Contemporary Romance: Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

***ARC received for an honest review***

“My Lily of the Night. Only of the moon.”

This may be the shortest review I have ever written…we will see…because to say anything about this book would be a spoiler and this is definitely a book that you need to go into totally blind.

Midnight Lily is unlike anything Mia has written before, this is like a romantic suspense type read whereby you will be trying to read between the lines, looking for clues, looking for anything that makes you understand what is going on. What is real? What is not? Is everything as it seems? To say I was shocked while reading would be an understatement, as the story panned out over the pages I was like wow Mia, totally unexpected, totally blind sided and where the hell did this come from? This goes to show how versatile Mia Sheridan is, no matter the subject or genre she always delivers.

“…and then my legs gave out as I fell to my knees under the silent judgment of the moon. And I hung my head. It felt like my soul was sleeping, and I had no earthly idea what would wake it up again.”

Mia Sheridan’s signature story telling is prevalent throughout as she whisks you away into the lives of Holden and Lily. Visceral scene setting will have you running through forests on this enchanting journey of two characters that were battling to find themselves in a world that had dealt them a bad hand and seemingly had no intention of giving them a break. A haunting tale of finding love and friendship when you most need it.

My emotions were on overload while reading, my heart broke for these two characters as Mia Sheridan delivered their story with evocative words and with heart breaking clarity. Two decimated souls that gravitated together when the world was telling them to stay worlds apart. The unlikeliest of love stories yet one that was born from sincerity, friendship, trust and hope.

“I would go back to her better than I’d been, and I’d ask her to share all her secrets. And maybe I’d be brave enough to share mine.”

This was one intense read, with twists and turns and masterful trickery, but is a read that I will not be forgetting in a hurry. As usual Mia Sheridan will embed her characters into your heart and soul as you cannot help but be enamoured by their past, their present and their future. Such an amazing and thought provoking book, go in blind and enjoy the ride.

“If locations hold pain, maybe love and kindness set it free.”
