What impact would it have when everything suddenly faded to black?For Mia, a crowded subway ride changes her entire life. Retreating to the wilderness helps her cope with a world that is suddenly too loud, too turbulent.

Away from the public eye, he adjust to his new reality, under the quiet observation of the intriguing hermit on the other side of the water.

Freya Barker inspires with her stories about ‘real’ people, perhaps less than perfect, each struggling to find their own slice of happy. She is the author of the Cedar Tree Series and the Portland, ME, novels.
Freya is the recipient of the RomCon “Reader’s Choice” Award for best first book, “Slim To None,” and is a finalist for the 2016 Kindle Book Awards for “From Dust”. She currently has two complete series and three anthologies published, and is working on two new series; La Plata County FBI—ROCK POINT, and Northern Lights. She continues to spin story after story with an endless supply of bruised and dented characters, vying for attention!

I was pleasantly surprised when I read this book. It came to me in yet another book funk and captured my attention from page one. I loved how the job of Mia in fact helped her out of her “funk” I don’t want to spoiler the plot, so you have to live with this vague explanation.
Her job is more than unusual for a heroine in romance books, but I loved it. I loved everything about how it was portrayed, even more so when I think of the changes her job field has to undergo in Germany right now. It is hard here for people with her job and maybe, just maybe if more people would read this book and see how much she helped others it would change for the better.
That being said I really liked the writing style, since it made it easy to follow the story while, at the same time, being challenging enough to not fly through the book. The characters were very well portrayed and their development throughout the book was astonishing. They went from selfish to caring, from scared to powerful and finally from self-centered to loving. It was awesome to see how much goodness really was in them and I would love to see more of them in further books featuring other characters.
All in all it was an enjoyable reading experience that pulled me out of my funk and made me want to read more from this author.
