The premise is great - crash survivor returning to painting whilst battling survivor's guilt, domestic violence survivor keeping her shame a secret whilst working to restore the family business to glory. It's too bad that author didn't explore these conflict points more, as they really only played a trivial role in the overall plot of a trite romance with two-dimensional characters and stilted dialogue.
I didn't find the characters believable, as they would frankly be far more complex in thought and response, and although the writing was serviceable enough to get the story across, it lacked finesse. There were several points where the written expression was poor and unclear. The dialogue was often contrived, and occasionally featured illogical adverbs ie 'she quipped' when no quip was actually made.
Writing a novel length work is no easy task, and I don't like to be overly critical because I appreciate the work involved, but to take her writing to the next level the author could consider studying a creative writing course to refine her character development, use of conflict to build tension, and general writing skills.
This book didn't overly grab me. The storyline was quite predictable and average. It would have been good if there was deeper insight into the way Grant dealt with surviving the plane crash, as well as Cali's struggles with overcoming domestic violence. The timeline for their relationship was too short to realistically deal with the emotional baggage they were both carrying. Overall, a clean read but personally not a favourite.
