Blog Tour: Review & Giveaway: Sweet Forty-Two by Andrea Randall

Regan Kane arrived in San Diego with nothing but a violin, his car and what feels like a lifetime of grief. Although he’s surrounded by friends and music, one delivery from the post office reminds him that the past is always just around the corner. When he befriends a local bartender, Regan wonders if letting go is what he wants to do at all. 

Georgia Hall has spent most of her life in the shadows of her mother's mental illness. Pushing away those around her ensures they won't get hurt when she succumbs to the same fate.

All of that unravels when she meets Regan. As her life spins out of control and the line between reality and fairytale blurs, she has to make a choice to trust or fall.

Regan and Georgia are searching for healing among the wreckage. Will doing so together make moving on all the more sweet?

Or will the secrets and darkness of the past drive them apart?

I was eager for this story since I read the synopsis. I couldn’t wait to dig in to it and I was not disappointed! I felt like from the very beginning, I wanted these characters to find peace. Both had somewhat mysterious pasts, but both appeared to be tragic. I wondered if they’d be able to work past their hindrances and find peace or if it’d really prevent them from being happy.

This was a great story of working through what life hands you despite your obstacles. Regan and Georgia are so very different from each other, but so very alike as well. It was very interesting to see their connection right from the beginning… even if they did everything possible to deny it and avoid it!

This story was fresh and original, for sure. Andrea Randall left it open to so many more possibilities to get inside of other characters with how she told the story! No cliffhanger here, folks, but there is definitely possibility to explore more with this group of friends.
