Blog Tour - Letters Home by Rebecca Brooke

Title: Letters Home
Author: Rebecca Brooke
Release Date: June 10, 2014

Life is all about the jigsaw, right? Finding the different puzzle pieces to complete your very own picture. A career you love, a house to make a home, a lover to complete you, and keep you warm at night.

Danielle Renton has a life, and she loves it. A recent law school graduate, she’d been floored when her boyfriend, Nate Lewis, enlisted during their sophomore year of college. At the time, she’d been concerned with what that meant for them as a couple, but in the years that followed, they’d learned to adapt to the logistics of an army relationship.

But when life throws her a curve ball, how will she cope? Can she pick up the pieces and make her picture beautiful again? Or does she realize that, sometimes, the pieces can be too broken to fit back together…

A little warning, you will need lots of tissues when you read this book, it's definitely an ugly cry. I'm talking, puffy eyes, massive amounts of tears and runny nose, UGLY cry, yes with a capital UGLY! 

Dani and Nate were high school sweethearts, fast forward a few years and they're just settling into their life together. Dani has just graduated law school and Nate is enlisted in the Army. They're completely happy and so in love, then Nate receives orders he's shipping out.

It's really hard to write a review for this book without giving a lot away. Based on the title I assumed the couple would exchange letters back and forth during the deployment, that didn't happen. What I didn't expect was the wealth of emotions this book brought to the forefront. What a beautifully written gem Rebecca Brooke has created. 

I don't think we can give enough gratitude to the men and women that serve our countries every day. They give up their time with their families, risk injury and even give their lives. And to the loved ones left behind that always leave a light on and keep the home fires burning, thank you also. 

Go pick up Letters Home and then thank a soldier.
~ Review by Erin

My heart beats for you and you alone. I know there will be hard times, times when you’re away and I wonder how I’m going to do it, but I promise to always let my love for you help me through those times—knowing that while I’m here missing you, you’re somewhere missing me. 

The kiss seemed to last forever, but it came to a point where I had to end it for fear of never wanting to leave. The tears in her eyes as I stood up to walk to the door broke something inside of me, something that wouldn’t be fixed until she was back in my arms again. 

His tongue parted my lips and slid into the warmth of my mouth.




My feet shuffled backwards until the back of my legs hit the bed but Nate didn’t stop moving. It wasn’t until he’d pushed me down onto the bed and covered his body with mine, did he lift his lips.
Rebecca Brooke grew up in the shore towns of South Jersey. She loves to hit the beach, but always with her kindle on hand. She is married to the most wonderful man, who puts up with all of her craziness. Together they have two beautiful children who keep her on her toes. When she isn’t writing or reading (which is very rarely) she loves watch SOA, TrueBlood, and The Walking Dead. She is also the author of the Forgiven Series.
