Blue Sky Review!

I was fortunate enough to receive an ARC of "Blue Sky" by Melissa Lemon. You know her, she's the brilliant one who wrote "Cinder and Ella" and "Snow Whyte and the Queen of Mayhem". :)

In keeping with the tradition of her writing amazing books, she decided to write ANOTHER great book! Here's the plot synopsis to give you an idea of the story before we jump in fully!


Sunny is bereaving the sudden death of her parents. Lewis is a homeless runaway seeking shelter in Sunny's basement from an early winter storm. When they unexpectedly meet, Sunny wants nothing more than to kill him. After a bizarre hostage situation and a poker game, Sunny realizes that Lewis isn't out to hurt her. Their initial distaste turns to friendship and love, but Sunny isn't keen on starting a relationship with a man she knows so little about. Lewis is loyal, and his patience paramount. Sunny is hesitant but her love runs deep and true. They are separated unwillingly, and must struggle and face overwhelming odds to find each other again.



Melissa has had many imaginary friends (and enemies) since she was a child. Her vivid imagination had her writing stories and jotting down book ideas for years until she finally sat down and finished a novel. She is married to an awesome man and the proud mother of three children. Music is also an important part of her life and she shares time with her music students teaching them piano, cello or guitar. Melissa is a graduate of the University of Utah and currently resides in the Salt Lake area.

My review: 

I definitely feel very fortunate that Melissa let me read this copy before the book was released. It's a story about two people who are lost and feeling alone. They both come to each other through odd circumstances but instead of ignoring the great potential for growth and love that could come from accepting each other, they actually give the odd situation a chance. I loved this book, I loved the story, and most of all I loved the dynamic characters that Melissa created and the way she was able to so vividly paint a picture of their lives that really touched me. I definitely recommend this book! Another great one from Melissa Lemon!
