Product Description

Chiari.

It’s a strange little word about to change Nick and Brenna St. James’ world forever.

Brenna was raised to believe love conquers all. Losing piece after piece of herself causes her to waver in her beliefs. Insecurities abound and she can’t stop wondering if Nick can love the person she is now. Is it fair to ask him to?

Nick wants a do over. To go back to a time before Brenna was sick, before everything changed. But genies don’t exist, life doesn’t grant wishes, and time machines haven’t been invented. All he can do is follow his heart...and his heart wants Brenna.

Together, they have to face a battle they never imagined.

When fighting is all you have left…

When love can't heal everything…

When life rests in the balance of the unknown...

When their vows, “…in sickness and in health”, are put to the test…

Will Nick and Brenna be able to fight through the odds stacked against them, or will everything come crumbling down?

5.0 out of 5 stars A Beautiful Mistake! 17 November 2015
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This was not the book I thought I was ordering. I "was" ordering a Renee Dyer book BUT I thought it was the next in her "Healing Heart's" series. I kept waiting for all of the "friends" to appear but they didn't. Then I read the back of the third book AGAIN and realized I had purchased the wrong book.
Normally this would have caused me to phone Amazon and throw a fit or something. As I kept reading I just kept my jaw hanging.
THIS was the most beautiful mistake I have probably ever made because I just finished one of the most beautiful books EVER. It was one of the most challenging books EVER, BUT that said, everyone should be reading this book. EVERYONE!!! I knew nothing about this condition and boy this author either has this condition or knows someone VERY close to her who DOES have this condition. At times I had to put down the book and cry. At other times in anger. I threw the book across the room at one point. I felt anger at a medical community and community at large who knows next to nothing about this condition. It was heartbreaking at times and I was in awe of the love the author created between these two folks. This is love in that rare form. Ms. Dyer's ability to not forget that this was a love story...magical. The strength they each have made me ashamed when I have a little nothing illness. I wished the author had gone further the last chapter and not left us hanging. I think we're left this way not as a cliffhanger but because this is how it needed to be but I would have liked to know how they would manage two kids and what would happen possibly with a different MD. For me this was a book for the ages and it will stay with me for a long time. I would like to request that the author possibly do a sequel or novella. I understand the story really doesn't allow for one but I need to know what happens. That I care THAT much for 2 fictional characters should convey the masterful writing here folks. Please, please, please, should you come upon my review you must read this book. You will be a better person for having read it because then if you happen upon someone with this condition you will be able to help. "Help" is a relative term here as those of you who have already read the book will know. I feel thankful and grateful that Ms. Dyer wrote this book. She should be amazingly proud of this groundbreaking book. denise bailey

5.0 out of 5 stars Required Reading for Those with Chronic Illness (and Their Families) 13 November 2015
By Backstage Blogs - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have read a lot of books this year - well over 100. I have read a lot of great books this year - I immediately thought of at least 20 as I wrote that. This book goes in a category of its own. I want to buy this book for everyone close to me and tell them it is required reading. I think I have actually convinced my husband to use a Kindle for the first time because he realizes it is that important to me that he reads it. Then I want to give copies to all of my friends struggling with chronic illnesses, so they can read it, and have all their loved ones read it.

This book is about a woman with Chiari Malformation. I have vaguely heard the term as I have been through hundreds of tests in the last few years, trying to decipher exactly what is causing my body to betray me. While I would definitely give this book the highest recomendation to anyone dealing with this rare disorder on any level, I will take it further and recommend it to everyone dealing with a chronic illness, and also to their partners.

I picked this book up on release day based on promotion from another author I like. The synopsis caught my attention, but I had no idea just how much this book would literally change my outlook on life. Seriously. It had that major of impact on me.

I will open myself up here in a way that I rarely do, but for the last 4 years my health has deteriorated to a place I barely recognize myself on my best days. I can't tell you how many doctors and specialists I have seen, let alone how many tests I have been through and how many potential diagnosis have been thrown around. While I still have no answers (and ironically am recovering from another surgery as I read most of this book) this book made me look at the whole of my situation in a new, and much needed, light.

What moved me most about this book is the way it is told through the eyes of both the wife, who suffers the condition, and the husband who has stood by thick and thin. After 4 years, it was very easy for me to understand Brenna's struggles and frustrations. My heart hurt for her and her family, and I so understood how she felt that she was letting her husband and kids down. I felt every world devoted to her frustration at her body's betrayal. I felt like someone actually understood when she had days she just didn't want to deal with it, didn't want to talk about it anymore, especially with those closest to her. How she didn't want to give up the few things she still had control over. Those things enough are reason for me to embrace this book and easily give it 5 stars.

Then comes what really set this book apart and really made me look at and reconsider so many things in my life. About half of this book is written from the husband's point of view. All of his frustrations and feelings of failure. It really hit home that he is a victim in all of this just as much as she is. It made me look at what my husband is going through with me in a completely new perspective. It definitely will make me pause before I get short with him again, realizing that though he may not be physically suffering the same things I am, it doesn't mean that he isn't just as affected by it as I am. It is opening up long overdue lines of communication between us. I have a new understanding that his frustrations aren't at me, as it is easy to believe when everything else is falling apart, but that he is also frustrated that he can't fix anything or provide any answers either.

To me this is an amazing romance, though there is no happily ever after. The dedication through the rough times is perhaps the most romantic gesture of all. We all need to take time to realize this, no matter where our struggles fall on the scale. The perspective I gained from this book has been priceless, and I will be recommending it again and again.

I know this book cannot have been easy for Ms. Dyer to write, but I cannot thank her enough for writing it. Although I will admit to loving reading books that rnd with puppies and rainbows, sometimes the most important ones are the ones that don't.

5.0 out of 5 stars For those who think Chiari is fake...This is your eye opener!!! 4 September 2016
By Sharon Holland - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
5 stars are not enough for this book. I want to thank this author for her writing about this. If you know me, I read a book in less than 2 days. This one I couldn't. With reading this story, I relived the past 6 years of my life. The heartbreak, fear and happiness that people dealing with Chiari go through. To top it all off, most doctors have NO CLUE what this is and most feel you are faking it all.

Like I said my story started 6 years ago when I found my daughter blue and unresponsive. 3 surgeries, 10 spinal taps, 2 PICC lines, 3 911 calls, many ER trips, and God only knows how many hours we have spent in hospitals and doctor offices. My hope is that people will read this story, and by reading it they will look into this more, forcing more research about Chiari and it's other conditions. #chiariawareness #chiaristrong

5.0 out of 5 stars Art imitates life--you can tell that Renee Dyer has lived this story with courage! 28 October 2015
By Lana Phillips - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I read this book last week and fell in love with the writing, the characters, the story. After I finished it, I found out that someone I had known slightly through Facebook had died in her sleep, more than likely from complications of Chiari. It brought the message of how devastating this condition can possibly be and the effects it has on both parts of the couple. This is no condition to take lightly.

I thought the depiction of a couple in crisis was well--written. The resolution was left open-ended, but I can live with that. Their story was left unfinished --we don't know if Brenna's life with Chiari will continue, or if the battle has reached an uneasy truce. I hope that one day Renee will revisit this couple so we can follow them further.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review, but I would buy it anyway and still probably will! As you see, 20% of proceeds go to Conquer Chiari until November 9!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gut-wrenchingly Real! 9 November 2015
By C at Prisoners of Print - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I’ve had to sit on my thoughts for He Loves Me Healthy, He Loves Me Not for a few days now. There’s something so indescribable that I felt as I turned that last page. Renee Dyer has created a heartbreakingly real, gut-wrenching, emotional story about a couple whose vows are tested in the hardest of ways. I can guarantee that this story is not your everyday contemporary romance, but if you’re willing to take a chance on a novel that so vividly has the author’s emotions bleeding onto the pages, you will not be disappointed.

“This is how life is supposed to be. It’s how I wanted it to stay. But, Nick and I learned a long time ago that life isn’t fair. It throws curveballs when you least expect it.”

No matter what you may have been through in life, the character of Brenna creates such deep emotions in readers, at least this one. As someone related to a person with a chronic disease, my heart completely sympathized for Brenna. As a human being, it utterly broke for her. To witness the myriad of emotions and get a firsthand account of the issues that arise with a medical issue, like Chiari, allows the character into readers’ hearts in a way that I haven’t previously experienced. I found myself rejoicing in the triumphs of Brenna, while also crying in the moments of heartbreak, but on a soul-deep level. Her husband, Nick, came across as a very multi-dimensional character to me. He seemed so confident in some aspects of his life, yet so unsure when it came to Brenna’s medical stuff. He loved fiercely, but then questioned whether that love could really be enough. These two already had a foundation in their relationship, so it was refreshing to experience what happens after the honeymoon phase has been completed in a relationship, even more so when the sickness or health vow comes into question.

“The doctors took a piece of my skull and I’ll forever have a scar.”

I tend to be a fan of dual points of view in novels, but I felt it was especially important in He Loves Me Healthy, He Loves Me Not. Without it, the characters could have come across abrasive and aloof, but hearing both sides of the story and their inner thoughts, really made their situation real. It helped readers to see the importance of communication in a relationship, especially when there are mitigating circumstances at play. I’ll be honest and say that there were times that the book was extremely difficult to keep turning the pages. The emotional and devastating circumstances that these characters were put through, especially one scene in particular, made my heart hurt.

“Sometimes you need to be reminded of who you were to get back to who you are. We’re on our way to being us again.”

He Loves Me Healthy, He Loves Me Not is definitely not your everyday romance. Renee Dyer has poured her heart and soul into the pages of the novel, and could be felt more with each word read. I know this story is incredibly personal to the author, and there is so much evidence of that. The writing was great, although the medical jargon did go over my head a couple of times. Most of all, those characters…I just wanted to take them into my arms and squeeze away all of their problems. While He Loves Me Healthy, He Loves Me Not deviates from her normal repertoire, it’s a breathtaking, poignant story of love and one woman’s journey to finding herself again.
