Broken Pieces by Kathleen Long

Setting: Paris, New Jersey
Genre: Women's Fiction
Publisher: Lake Union Publishing
Release Date: July 19, 2016

Her mother died when she was 10, and her dad walked away from her around the same time. For 20 years, he's built up an acting career in New York City. Meanwhile, Destiny Jones has grown up and owns her own refinishing/remodeling company in New Jersey. When her dad reappears on her door step and claims he wants to become part of her life, Destiny doesn't believe a word he has to say.

No matter how hard she tries to push him away, he pushes back harder. He has a secret, and when he reveals it, Destiny's life will be forever changed.

The one thing with reviewing is that sometimes it's really hard to review without giving away a potential spoiler. Other reviewers have broached the secret in their review of Broken Pieces, but I don't want to do that. Let's just say that I was struggling with this book until the secret came out. From that moment on, the story is rich with emotion and the characters warmed my heart.

I thought I'd found the first Lake Union Publishing release that wouldn't wow me, but I was wrong. This book has the same emotional pull that the other releases have had. It made me laugh, cry, and feel like part of the fictional family when it was over.
