This book starts off with heartbreak. But seeing how it starts, you hope it can only go up from there. Natalie just lost her husband. She is grieving. She is trying to move forward. But she with every step forward, there are many steps back. Until Liam, her husbands best friend, comes to help. And he does help. He gives her huge pushes to move forward and starting living her life again. And you see a very natural procession of them falling in love.
It sounds scandalous. But Corinne Michaels did it in such a way that it wasn’t. Husband dies, best friend comes to help wife, they get together. But in Consolation, while it happened that way, it was very natural. He’s there to help her, not bed her. There was no attraction or feelings before Aaron died. They were friends. There are a lot of should we or shouldn’t we. They question. But in the end, the questions all point to yes, this is what they want.
