Review: Finding Bliss by Dina Silver

Finding Bliss

About the book:  Chloe Carlyle has always longed for the perfect family. 

Growing up with an alcoholic single mother, she has seen her share of heartbreak and disappointment, and is striving to build a new legacy for herself. After graduating from college, she takes a job working as a summer girl for the Reeds––a wealthy, accomplished family that personifies her American dream. Her summer takes an unexpected turn when the Reeds’ eldest son Tyler, the star quarterback for Notre Dame, shows up and turns her life upside down.

An ambitious young woman with a wry sense of humor, Chloe never imagined herself as the type to succumb to the looks and charms of the hometown hero, but she falls hard for Tyler, and is devastated when they part ways at the end of the summer. As she heads off to law school, Chloe tries to convince herself this was just a fling, but she can’t quite get over him. It’s not until Tyler contacts her out of the blue late one winter night that everything changes. 

After doing everything in her power to build the perfect life, Chloe soon learns that there are things beyond her control. She must draw on inner reserves of strength as her life takes unpredictable—and sometimes heartbreaking—twists and turns, and she finds herself faced with decisions she never thought she’d have to make. Poignant, heartfelt, and emotional, Finding Bliss is a reminder that you don’t have to live a fairytale life in order to have a happy ending.

Dina Silver writes stories that cause me to respond emotionally. It's like she is writing the book just for you. You find hidden messages about the bigger issues in life within the pages of her novels. You find yourself inspired, reflecting and hopeful when reading her words. Silver writes stories that get into my bones and stick there. In her newest novel Finding Bliss, Silver writes a story that kept me up late into the night, one that was hard to put down, one that moved me once again. Finding Bliss is about so much more than young love. It is about staying true to oneself and about making it through the bumps in the road with your head held high and your dignity intact. Silver writes a beautifully woven story that is thoughtful, funny and memorable. Her story is one that makes you certain that there is not just one path in life, but many and one must choose their own path in order to find bliss!!! I LOVED this book and rate it 5 stars!
