To say Catherine Cowles blew me away with this one is an understatement. I’m trying my hardest to come up with enough words that could possible describe how Beautifully Broken Pieces made me feel but honestly I’m so blown away my brain just is not functioning. It’s still the beginning of 2019 but I can honestly say this may be one of the greatest books this year. Taylor and Walker have a powerfully moving story that goes beyond romance and captures you literally on the first page.
It also makes you ugly cry so grab those tissues boo! Because these two will have you sobbing with all that swooning. In all seriousness I connected with Taylor on a level I rarely do. Her story hit extremely close to home for me and Catherine perfectly captured the emotions of loss and grief in a way that it was almost like a reflection of everything I have felt in my own life recently. Taylor is so real and those emotions so raw it was painful and healing all at once for me.
But this is a magnificent romance after all, so to heal my heart there was Walker along with his entire family and of course characters I’d already fallen in love with from her previous book Carter, Austin and Liam. Walker’s family brings a warm-hearted lightness to the story breaking up the heavier emotion as Taylor’s heart begins to open when it comes to Walker. Where Taylor is one of my all time favorite characters because of how much I relate to her, Walker is one because of how flat out wonderful he is. A unique mix of being gentle while still giving Taylor the push she needs to knock down her walls he stole my heart over and over again.
The chemistry they have is not only immediate it’s also magnetic, pulling them together even when they try to resist and making for some great banter and sparks to go hand in hand with the sweet and sexy that blossoms between them. There aren’t enough stars in the world for what this book deserves because Beautifully Broken Pieces deserves every last star in the universe.

Small town romance filled will 1 hero that does not take no for answer, 1 sassy heroine that has built enormous walls around her heart. Oh my can you say swoon worthy, because that is exactly what this book is filled with. This is not a quick read, this is a read that you will savor. Each page you read you will get pulled further and further into the lives of the residents of Sutter Lake.
Taylor is our heroine who has suffered a great loss in her life. She feels it is easier to not let anyone in than to live her life. Walker our hero has also suffered loss, but refuses to let Taylor push him away. The banter and chemistry between the two will have you flipping through the pages. You can add a little mystery to the fold and you have an awesome book. I know this may not seem like much of a review, but that’s because a) I don’t want to give anything away AND b) I want you to be able to immerse yourself into their lives. Their feelings will come to life for you, and you will be able to feel exactly what they feel.
I am looking forward to more of this series. I can not wait to see who all gets their stories told.. The secondary characters.
