Synopsis: When Jill met Jay Greenfield she knew she had found her forever love. She was a kindergarten teacher, he was a high-powered attorney and their lives were perfect. But when a tragic accident takes Jay’s life, this young bride is left to pick up the pieces.
Jill finds herself a young widow facing multiple decisions she thought she had a lifetime to decide. With support from her childhood best friends, Lanie and Stella, Jill attempts to piece her life back together. With nightmares plaguing her dreams and the struggles of constant grief over Jay’s passing, Stella and Lanie keep near constant vigilance over her.
In the process of settling the estate, Jill learns that her husband was not quite the man she thought he was. She finds herself transported to the small beach town of Oak Island, North Carolina. But the fairy tale ending she envisioned no longer exists. She must face the reality that Jay is gone as she finds herself having a chance at love one more time.
Safe and Sound follows a yearlong journey of love, loss, friendship, and conquering the unexpected.
When Jill's husband, Jay, is hit and killed by a drunk driver her whole world is turned upside down and she loses all zest for life. Her friends, Stella and Lanie, are very concerned and keep constant vigil. As the months since Jay's death pass, Jill slowly begins to put the pieces of her life back together, but what she really needs is a fresh start. After meeting with an attorney to settle Jay's estate, Jill discovers that Jay has left her more than she could have ever dreamed possible. Jay's deep love for his wife goes beyond the grave and his quest to take care of her gives her exactly what she needs, a second chance.
Safe & Sound is an emotional roller coaster that captures your heart, brings tears to your eyes and eventually a smile to your face. The characters are well developed and readers will feel a sense of closeness to Jill and all that she has to overcome. Readers will equally enjoy Jill's caring friends, Lanie and Stella. Stella adds a lightheartedness to an otherwise trying time and Lanie gives insight into the struggles Jill faces. Safe & Sound is an all around well written enjoyable read. I was so engulfed in the characters lives that I was sorry the story had to end.
I highly recommend picking up a copy. Available on Amazon.
