About the Book

Title: Midnight Blue

Series: Love in Color #1

Author: Suzie Waltner

Publisher: Anaiah Press Publishing

Release Date: September 6, 2022

Genre: Christian Contemporary Romance

A series of heartbreaking setbacks behind her, Scarlett Sykes is now focused on creating the best life possible for her daughter. One where innocence and joy is not colored by rejection or loss. While finances are tight and Scarlett’s job isn’t ideal for a single mother, her child will always know she’s loved. Especially since Harmony’s father wanted nothing to do with them.

As lead singer and the face of a successful country band, Jake Turnquist’s closest friends depend on him, but life in the spotlight is quickly losing its appeal. At a party celebrating another accomplishment, he’s stunned to discover Scarlett assisting the caterer. Almost ten years have passed, but he’s never forgotten his first love.

In the hours after a surprise revelation, Jake scrambles to orchestrate a way to spend time with Scarlett and Harmony—the family he’s always wanted but never knew he had. He once gave her up to pursue his music. What will he have to surrender to win her back?

My Review

I love second chance love stories and Midnight Blue was one that really grabbed my heart! These two not only have the opportunity for a second chance at love together, but also the chance to have the family together that they had long ago dreamed of. I loved seeing a few flashbacks that showed how intertwined these two were in each other’s lives. They started as childhood friends who fell in love and ended up apart, one finding success and the other barely making it paycheck to paycheck.

Harmony was a sweet, yet spunky, character who sometimes listened well and other times found herself making the wrong choice. Her interactions with both Jake and Scarlett felt very realistic given their situation.

The emotions were spot on in this novel. I could feel the anger, the love, the fear of rejection, the hope, and so much more throughout the entire book. I loved the way things worked out for Jake and Scarlett. I wasn’t ready to turn the last page and did not want to say goodbye to these characters. The story wrapped up beautifully, by I still would have really enjoyed an epilogue to their story.

(5 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
