Pillowtalk by Cassie Mae
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Pillow Talk talks about the pain of mourning, the pain of betrayal, the grief, the guilty feeling, and the rediscovery of love. It shows in a sweet and tender way how to overcome the sadness of loss, how to find ways to forgive itself and how impossible it is to be happy alone.
I loved Kennedy's story too much. She lost the great love of her life a year ago and after much insistence of her sister-in-law, returns to his hometown to throw his ashes and pay homage to the beloved. Even reluctantly, she faces the challenge of let him go and discovers she's stronger than she looks.
Narrated in third person from the perspective of each protagonist, little by little I was glimpsing the scenery of how it was the death of Jared and of how Kennedy realized that she still had space in her heart for a new love. With the help of new and old friends, she recalls good moments from her past with Jared while trying to move on.
The plot is nothing complicated, it does not have excessive drama even with the theme of death surrounding each scene, everything is very simple and delicious since the arrival of Kennedy until the perception that life continues it course, the nature and the signs where they notice the presence of Jared every moment they are together.
With very human characters and a slight touch of humor (highlight here for the sister of Jared, Chelsea that is all joy and noisy in person), the story was holding me and I was falling in love and cheering for the couple, Romantic and full of love.
