Midnight Lily by Mia Sheridan
Amazon.com * Amazon.de * Goodreads
Holden Scott is the prince of professional football. At least he was before he lost it all . . . or more to the point, before he threw it all away. Now he's out of a job, out of the public's good graces, and perhaps just a little out of his mind. So when a friend offers up his remote lodge in the wilds of Colorado, giving Holden some time away to get his life back on track, he can hardly say no. The last thing he expects is to see a beautiful girl in the woods—one wearing a white, lace dress who appears in the moonlight, and leaves no footprints behind. Is she a dream? A ghost? A product of his muddled imagination? Or something entirely different?
Midnight Lily is the haunting love story of two lost souls reaching for each other in the dark. A tale of healing, acceptance, and the worlds we create to protect our own hearts. It is a story of being lost, of being found, and of being in the place between.
This is a stand-alone Sign of Love novel, inspired by Virgo Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.
I am not really sure how to review Midnight Lily. I really enjoyed the story, it was not what I was expecting going in, but I feel like if I talk about it at all it will just spoil it for others. Which I don't want to do. This is a hard one. I don't know that I have read any other books where I struggled so much to come up with what to write in a review. It was an unique read for sure and you should probably just go read it for yourself. It was a fun adventure.
The story opens with Holden being dropped off at his friends remote cabin to detox and get his act together. He is spiraling down and is going to lose everything if he doesn't straighten up. Not that he seems to care that much, but still. He doesn't expect to see anyone else while he is up there, he should just be focusing on himself, but then he sees her. The girl in the woods. The girl who is a mystery. Who is she? Where does she live? What is she doing in the woods?
Oh this was an interesting read. I really enjoyed it and when I got to the end I had to jump online and see if I could find other people to talk about this story with. Normally I write my friend while reading a book when something crazy or fun or heartbreaking or whatever happens, and with this story I did, but they were so vague. Just Eek! Stuff is going on with characters! You must read this book so we can discuss!! Since I can't really say anything more than what is in the synopsis I will leave it at this - go read this book. This story is not something I have read before and I'm still thinking about everything that happens. Oh it was great. Go. Read it. Then you will be in the know.
