The core story of Dreaming August by Terri-Lynne DeFino is about Benny who has been widowed for six years and finds herself falling in love with her husband's best friend, Dan. But it's so much more than the romance.Benny's journey to reconcile her feelings for Dan and her husband, Henny, lead her to unexpected meetings and conversations with people, alive and dead, people she thought she knew, but found out otherwise, i.e her mother, and even Dan. This book has many 'secondary' characters that [...]

Review also found at kristineandterri/22.5 starsI received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. The expected publication date is April 12, 2016.This story really wasn't what I expected. Although I approach each story I read with little expectations so that I can enter with an open mind, I still have some idea of what direction the story should take. I was expecting a romance. You know the kindey love each other but must pine for each ot [...]
Benedetta “Benny” Grady was widowed six years ago, but she is finding it difficult to let go of the past, still defining herself as the wife of Henderson Parker Fredericks. Her friendship with Dan Greene is an old one, and he was an important part of her support system after Henny’s death. For a brief period recently, he was more than a friend, but Benny’s guilt over being unfaithful to her husband’s memory soon had her retreating from that relationship. Now she’s pregnant, and her g [...]
Dan sometimes just needs direction from his woman, “Dan.” Benny placed a finger upon his lips. “How about your brain shuts it the hell up now so you can kiss me?” I liked this book, I really liked Dan.
Benny is stuck in a rut. She promised to love Henny forever and that is what she is doing even though he died six years before. She squashes happy feelings as wrong – almost as if she wishes she were dead, too. She seems to have been marching in place for six years and only going through the motions of living. Dan is a good man and into Benny though she squashes the good feelings he brings out in her because she is stuck in that rut of her own creating. Benny is a bit quirky and spends quite a [...]

It’s about family. It’s about the gh [...]
