Product Description

From the bestselling author of Weightless and A Love Letter to Whiskey

Wren Ballard is trying to find herself.

She never expected to be divorced at twenty-seven, but now that the court date has passed, it’s official. The paperwork is final. Her feelings on it aren’t.

Spending the summer in a small mountain town outside Seattle is exactly what she needs. The peaceful scenery is a given, the cat with the croaky meow is a surprise, but the real kicker? A broody neighbor with nice arms, a strange reputation, and absolutely no interest in her.

Anderson Black is perfectly fine being lost.

He doesn’t care about the town’s new resident — he’s too busy fighting his own demons. But when he’s brought face to face with Wren, he can see her still-fresh wounds from a mile away. What he doesn’t see coming is his need to know who put them there — or his desperation to mend them.

Sometimes getting lost is the way to find yourself. Sometimes healing only adds a new scar. And sometimes the last place you expected to be is exactly where you find home.

Wren left her husband. With precious little support from family and friends, with the notable exception of her best friend and business partner Adrian, she's gone through the motions of filing for divorce and getting the final decree, and now? Now it's time to work out what comes next.

The thing is, unlike so many, this divorce wasn't about infidelity. No one cheated on anyone else, nor was it a case of ending one relationship in order to move on with someone else. It was about recognizing that Wren had been putting so much of herself into trying to make an impossible situation work that she was in real danger of losing her own identity entirely.

Since the inspiration she relies on as a fashion designer abandoned her the day she moved out on her husband Keith, she's decided to take a sabbatical for the summer and rent a cabin up in the mountains of Washington in the hopes of finding some kind of direction, some kind of meaning, and some spark of inspiration again.

What she finds instead is an eclectic group of individuals who inhabit the other cabins nearby who, each in their own way, take her in and contribute to defining the next chapter in her story, not least of all the reserved and obviously broken Anderson.

I'm not sure I posses the words to fully express how deeply I felt this story. Wren, despite her divorce, still struggles mightily with reconciling the dissonance between a head that tells her that she should still be fighting for her marriage and a heart that's convinced her that despite what anyone else might think, it ended long ago, guilt over leaving behind a husband who still loves her in his own way.

The thing I like most about a Kandi Steiner book is you know you are in for an emotional ride with it. You will go through all the emotions when reading one of her books, but this one has been my favourite to date.

Wren takes some time out to rediscover herself after being divorced. She hopes taking a rental cabin in the mountains for the summer will give her some inspiration for her next seasons line. Distractions come from all angles when she arrives and none more so than Anderson. He has demons from his past that he just can't let go, until he realizes he may just loose the best thing that has happened to him in seven years.

I have never been through a divorce, but the way this was written, I now feel I have a better understanding of the different aspects Wren faced. She was a brave and strong woman that needed a little more confidence in herself and her decisions. Anderson, who was the brooding neighbor, is a gentle sole who also needed to forgive himself. There are moments in this book that had me giggling, like the hot tub debacle. And there were other parts that my heart was breaking for them both. I recommend this one if you like some angst, some romance and believe in second chances.

I enjoyed this book so much; it was such a fun read. The author’s writing style was great and I loved Wren, she was such a strong heroine in my eyes.
The words and scenes just rolled off the page and I was hooked from page one; I just couldn’t put it down as I wanted to see what happened next. This was the first time I have read a book by this author and I thought her storytelling was amazing. I think good character development in a story is very important and this author nailed it. There were a lot of characters in this book and they all interacted with each other and this made it such a fun book to read. I loved Momma Von’s character. She was kind of a mother to everyone and knew everyone’s business; I also loved the cat. The easy flow of the words and reading, how the character’s interacted, how did such fun stuff with each other made the story a 5 star read for me.
As you may have guessed, I loved this book and I think everyone who reads this novel will love it too!

Revelry was brilliant. I soaked up every single word and I loved Wren and Anderson. I loved the side characters, they were real and Kandi gave them life. The story was heartfelt and consuming, yet heartbreaking at times. It was everything I needed, and more.

5.0 out of 5 stars SWEET AND HEARTWARMING WITH ALL THE FEELS! 20 April 2017
By Angie Mckeon @Angie and Jessica's Dreamy Reads - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
"For the first time in my life, I was owed nothing, and I owed nothing. Lonely or not, I was free."

Kandi Steiner has fast become one of my favorite authors. I fell in love with her when I read Weightless and continued that love affair when I picked up A Love Letter to Whiskey. And now she's done it once again with Revelry. Kandi has such a distinct way of telling a story. It sinks its claws inside you and pulls you in completely. I felt like Wren and Anderson's story was intoxicating and I loved the feels in Revelry. Where Weightless and Whiskey were utter angst-fests, Revelry set itself apart with a bittersweet kind of angst. The kind that doesn't necessarily kill you, but makes you ache and yearn and burn for the characters in the best way. This novel shows you that life doesn't always go as planned, and that's OK. It's part of the journey. Life's messy and a messy life is a good life! This truly is a story of self discovery, of forgiveness, and second chances. And I just loved it.

"A part of me knew I was playing with fire, but I told myself I could handle the burn."

Revelry is a story I think a lot of people will relate to on some level. Wren is fresh off of a divorce. She's in a rough place. Life looks different than she thought it would. She's dealing with guilt, with a heavy dose of despair and loneliness that comes from a failed marriage and crushed dreams of what could have been. She's grieving, lost, floundering, and she hopes the summer in a cabin in Seattle is where she'll find some peace. Some healing. And maybe even some inspiration. Wren's a fashion designer who owns a popular boutique and she needs inspiration for her next line of clothing. She also desperately needs to lose herself in her sketches. Her art is her life line.

Anderson Black isn't living, in fact he's carrying around so much pain from his past he's decided he doesn't deserve to really live, he just needs to get by. Anderson is cold and angry, broody and unwelcoming when we first meet him. I wasn't sure how to take his character at the start but once he spotted Wren... boy, oh boy, I felt it!!!! :: shivers ::

"One moment, one look, and the haze I'd walked in for years blew out in a breath.
Because every day was the same.
And then I saw her."

Both of these characters are wounded. Their baggage is significant. They're in no place emotionally for any kind of a relationship. But there's a draw that they can't fight and it's delicious! I literally couldn't put this book down. Each page had me hooked. I loved the sweetness of the banter, but also the heaviness that accompanied the storyline at times. This book is ALL heart. All soul. And I saw that in this pages, in the chemistry that Anderson and Wren had. It sizzled. The need they had to lose themselves in each other was addicting and heart pounding!

"Touching Wren was like taking ecstasy, every sense enhanced. My skin was almost too sensitive to her touch, my ears too aware of her breaths, my tongue too tender for the taste of her. If she really was a drug, addiction wasn't just a possibility —it was a certainty."
--
"I've got you," he said, voice low, arms tight around me. And he did. He had me. In more ways than he knew.

I know I said this before, but I feel the need to say it again. This story is brimming with pure heart. It's so well written. Kandi's an eloquent, beautiful writer who's words always make me think and feel. I love reading her stories because they're honest. They're real. There's something magical about them that sets them apart from the rest. I find her writing breathtaking and with each book she puts out, it gets better and better and better.

Revelry was heartbreaking, but more so sweet and inspiring! Anderson and Wren spend the summer finding themselves and the journey is beautiful. I truly love second chance romances and I think this portrayed life after heartbreak perfectly! I LOVED IT. I really did. I, 5 fantastic stars, LOVED IT!

5.0 out of 5 stars This book made me FEEL so many emotions! <3 20 April 2017
By Jen Zingaro - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I can't say enough about Kandi Steiner and her writing. It is so emotional and smart! I picked up this book after reading A Love Letter to Whiskey. Both of these books made me feel all kinds of emotions. She writes about real characters that aren't perfect and struggle with the events in their life. This story in particular is about learning to love yourself for who you are and not to worry about what everyone else thinks about you. It's something we've all struggled with in our lives at some point or another. It really hit me right in the heart. Sometimes you have to let things go even if you don't want to. We get one life to do the things that make us happy. Wren is essentially starting over and travels to a quiet little town to get some inspiration. During that time, she was able to inspire others to do the same. This book is written so beautifully and I was so happy with the ending of this story. And everyone NEEDS a Momma Von in their life! In fact, I want to be just like her. :)

5.0 out of 5 stars I'll get cabin fever with Anderson ANYDAY! 5 stars!! 20 April 2017
By Stacy Wilkerson (Biblio Belles Book Blog) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Once again Kandi Steiner delivers a book that will take your soul and breathe life into it. She did it with A Iove letter to whiskey, and with this book I can't even tell you how full my heart is. I just read a book that is now a part of me, I will never forget this beautiful love story or how it made me feel. Full of great characters and that irresistible slow burn that we all crave, with just the right amount of angst, this is a story you need in your life asap!

Wren Ballard is a 27 year old boutique owner/clothing designer trying to get back on her feet and gain some independence after the failure of her 10 year marriage. She's trying to embrace her freedom and do a little soul searching in order to resume her regularly programmed life, and she has a major addiction with 90's music which automatically made her my literary soulmate.

Summertime is the perfect time for a fling In my opinion and set just outside of Seattle in a cozy cabin town, this book truly transports you to that fantasyland desperately needed to fully escape. And of course, per usual, Kandi's words are breathtakingly beautiful without being overly descriptive or dragging on, in fact it's just the opposite. The descriptions are so vivid and natural, I felt like I was smelling the smells in the mountain air and hearing all of the wonderful sounds of the cabin and the boots on the hiking trail, and the purrs of the vagabond cat, it was just perfect. Like movie picture, perfect. I wanted to live every moment with these characters because of the lyrical quality of the words. This story is a precious little gem that I want to wrap up and keep safe in my jewelry box of favorite books.

Anderson... Oh this man. Anderson Black is a local handyman in town and he's struggling to get by from day to day because of the weight he bears of an unreasonable guilt he carries with him. He's broody, short winded and ruggedly handsome and I loved watching his transformation from a wounded soul into a dream come true. Watching a man live with so much pain and guilt and then witnessing him come full circle at the heels of a woman who owns his heart is one of the most romantic things ever. Kandi captures this so perfectly, I can't even explain or comprehend how she does it, but it takes your breath away and makes you pause and really think about the beauty of love and what it overcomes to shine so brightly in the end. Her writing is simply, magical.

Watching these two characters rise and fall through the courtship of their relationship was everything I'd hoped it would be. All the unknowns and doubts and vulnerability peaks made this book seem so real to me, I can't gush enough about how well this was done. In the end, I went through every emotion on my book-emotions-requisite-list-- and that's saying a lot! I laughed, I cried, I oohhh'd & ahhh'd, I gasped and goosebumped. It was great, like really REALLY great. I can only hope this story moves other readers in the way it moved me because it is currently at the top of my list.

Regret over not being able to get even her own parents to understand her motivations for the split, and despair over whether she'll ever find, or even deserves to find joy, happiness and love ever again.

While there's no doubt that Revelry is a romance, and a touching and beautiful one at that, I found it to be so much more. As much as it's about finding and navigating the turbulent waters of new love, its also offers a piercingly insightful view into the process by which both Wren and Anderson learn to forgive, accept and ever so slowly learn to love themselves again, even as that process is both aided and complicated by their developing involvement with each other.

One of the most touching, tender and heartfelt books I've ever had the pleasure of reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Revving the engine... to speed away and start over!! 20 April 2017
By Theresa Esterline - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Real life romance with anger, tragedy, rescue, passion, love and survival... not necessarily in that order. The characters are very relatable. The scenes are easily envisioned. And I just couldn't stop turning the pages! And now a bit about the story...

Wren is recently divorced and has decided to take a summer hiatus from her design business. She still plans to sketch over the summer, but will not be going into the shop on a daily basis. She needs to find herself again. Her passion, spark, and design flair has been missing lately. As she escapes to a small mountain community, she finds her life changing, healing even.

Anderson has been barely existing the last seven years, since his cousins death. Then a new woman moves into the cabin down the lane. From the first time he saw her his life starts changing. He is slowly starting to live again.

Will they heal each other or give up before they can hurt one another more...

Favorite passages:
- Funny, isn’t it, how often we fight what our hearts try to tell us.
- Maybe I wasn’t broken after all, maybe I was only learning to walk on a new kind of path, a gravel road my tender feet had yet to master.
- Insecurity was a tricky bastard. I’d gone from sailing on the highest of clouds to walking under one that was constantly drizzling on my head.
- I’d learned that if a move in life didn’t make you feel like singing and throwing up all at once, it wasn’t big enough.
- And maybe that’s what love was, giving someone the power to shatter you and trusting that they wouldn’t.
