Hindsight is 20/20
A lot of people ensured Aidy’s future was filled with endless possibility.
She never saw the guy like me—who belonged behind bars—coming.
So, I’m going to make sure he pays…
And in the meantime, do whatever it takes for Aidy to smile again.
There’s no doubt she makes my meaningless existence worthwhile.
If I had a shred of decency, I’d have left it alone.
Because if Aidy’s determined to stand alongside me, it will destroy her perfectly planned out life.

Somehow, Jody has a way of reaching right down into your heart and soul, grabbing on, squeezing and doesn’t let go! Each time I read one of her books, I say she can’t ever do better, and then she does!
I truly never expected the characters and storylines from the Shattered Hearts of Carolina Series to grab me the way the Quints did, but I can say that they have in the most unexpected way!
While Aidy and Morgan’s story deals with some really brutal issues – addiction, adoption, sexual assault, and many others, they are written with grace, and where I expected to find triggers, I found hope, and eventually beauty.
As with most, if not all, of Jody’s female leads, Aidy is strong, courageous and compassionate – the trifecta, if you ask me! I don’t care to read about simpering, weak woman, and you certainly won’t find them in Jody’s books!
I wasn’t sure what to make of Morgan at first, however, he was once again a perfect mix of bad boy, along with charm, a generous and loving spirit, and compassion.
I really did not want to put this book down… I didn’t want it to end (thank you for not wrecking me with another short, Jody!!! 藍藍). The storyline was so engaging – heartbreaking at times – and it was a thing of beauty to watch Aidy pull herself (aided by Morgan) from the depths of despair and become the woman she was intended to be!
This is an absolute must read!
Jody’s husband asked what she’d been doing all day. After five years she finally confessed, “When no one is around, I write.”
Okay, it was more like it was more like a bunch of stammering and trying to get out of saying a thing. Jody’s a writer. You want it pretty. Let’s compromise.
“Just finish one,” he said, challenging her to complete a story and share it. Little did he know that those words of encouragement meant they’d return from a family vacation with a wild and defiant set of quintuplets stumbling their way through life. Wasn’t raising their three sons enough?
A native of nowhere, Jody settled in New England for 17 years before agreeing to uproot her brood of boys and move to North Carolina. She spends most of her time reading, writing, and hoping that her ravenous children haven’t eaten all the ingredients before she cooks dinner.
