Hey everyone!

This Saturday - in case you don't already have the date circled a bunch of times with exclamation points and all on your calendar - is the release date for Sarah Grace Grzy's Never Say Goodbye!  I was super excited for the opportunity to be an ARC reader for this book, so I'm 100% here to gush with my honest (but super enthusiastic) review and talk about how much I cried over this  how heartfelt and absolutely awesome this book is.

This book's plot is - just...perfect, okay?  It can easily be read as a standalone or as a sequel to Live Without You, her freshman novel.  The plot moves at a steady pace and I found myself thinking about this book so much even when I wasn't reading it, that it legitimately bothered me to have to set it down to do things like...you know...eating, boring stuff like that.  You're immediately drawn to the characters and all you want to do is see a happy ending for all of them.  Ty and Alyvia are so realistic that it's like you're watching those events unfold right before you -- and of course, the great descriptions and prose help that as well.  The themes and messages of growth, family, and healing are so, so important -- and they're perfectly executed as well.  The character arcs move along at a realistic pace, and you just genuinely want to see them happy.  And can I say that Ty's little girl is written so well?  Lots of books have poorly-written kid characters that either act extremely mature for their age or completely baby-like, but this one strikes a great balance.  And the daddy-daughter dynamic in this book isn't one you see often, so it's a breath of fresh air into the genre of contemporary Christian fiction.  I could go on and on about this book, but I'd probably spoil it for you guys...so if you're into Christian fiction, especially sweet and well-written romance, this is definitely a book for you.  I have to say that, as a huge consumer of contemporary Christian romance novels, this one's gotta be in my top 10.  So...make sure to check it out!

Currently available on Amazon for paperback or Kindle HERE.  If you're not a fan of the shipping delays right now thanks to the virus situation, you can always order from Barnes & Noble HERE.  I ordered from B&N and they've been super fast with their shipping!  *AND* you can order a signed copy from Sarah Grace Grzy HERE.

Tyler Collens has seen grief and loss in his years of experience as a paramedic—but he never expected it to touch his life in such a personal way. Time and routine have steadied his feet, and he looks toward the future as he raises his infant daughter—but the past has a tighter grip on him than he knows.

Alyvia Emmerson has never been certain of who she is or where she belongs. Her dad’s abandonment as a teen broke a fragile piece of her heart, but ten years later, she has moved on. Living on her own, she at last has a project to devote herself to: revitalizing a shabby bookstore. But she didn’t count on her dream job revealing the shattered pieces of herself she thought mended long ago.
Never Say Goodbye, releasing May 2, 2020.

Sarah Grace Grzy is a voracious reader, and if it weren't for this crazy thing called 'Life,' she'd be tempted to spend all her days in front of a wood stove, book in one hand, coffee mug in the other.

A lover of learning, she finds enjoyment in many things and has more hobbies than she knows what to do with. Sarah Grace is a freelance web and graphic designer, and when not working, spending time with her ever-growing family, or reading, she can be found painting, playing the piano, or fangirling with her sisters and friends. Sarah Grace inhabits the State of Great Lakes, and wouldn't want to live anywhere else--unless it meant she could have a baby penguin, in which case, she'd gladly move to the South Pole.
