Release Day Blitz & Review
Pocketful of Sand
M. Leighton
~ Synopsis ~
“She was beauty for my ashes and I was hope for her heartache.”
~Cole Danzer.

I don’t know what makes a great love story.  Is it that instant attraction when boy meets girl?  The passionate kisses and the fairy-tale ending?  Or is it a lifetime of tragedy, paid in advance, for a few stolen moments of pure bliss? The pain and the suffering that, in the end, you can say are worth it for having found the missing piece of your soul?

The answer is:  I don’t know.  I don’t know what makes a great love story.  I only know what makes MY love story.  I only know that finding Cole when I did, when my world had dissolved into nothing, when I couldn’t separate nightmare from reality, was the only thing that saved me.  He was more broken than I was, but somehow we took each other’s shattered pieces and made a whole.  Without him, I wouldn’t have made it. If THAT is what makes a great love story, if THAT is what makes an epic romance, then mine…OURS is the greatest of them all.

~ Review ~
I finished Pocketful of Sand and I felt my heart splinter and get put back together!!   It was beautiful, the story kept me guessing as to what happened to make them that broken. Revealed in such a way that made my heart break for them. Another brilliant, heart-felt read from Michelle Leighton!!

Pocketful of Sand is a must read!  You must meet Cole and Eden and let's not forget Emmy....scene stealer on more than one occasion.  I knew that this book was going to captivate me when I saw the cover.  I shouldn't judge a book by a cover but this one is just breathtaking and I had to know the meaning behind "Pocketful of Sand".  Michelle took this story beyond my expectations, wrapping me up between the pages with angst, tension, chemistry, mystery and the need to know.....why?

I wondered from the beginning what had happened to both Emmy and Eden as well as Cole.  Why are these truly beautiful people so haunted and damaged?  Why are they in self imposed isolation?  Will they ever find happiness?  I had my theories but was flooded with emotions when their plights were revealed.   Tissues required.

Cole and Eden's connection was almost like a quiet current running through them.  Neither knew why but they felt so connected to one another.  Emmy....the catalyst that sparks a fire of emotions that neither of them can deny.  Cole finds that he is possessive of both Eden and Emmy but cannot verbalize why.  With the heavy weights of their pasts bearing down on them will Cole and Eden find a way to push the past down and allow their feelings to rise to the surface?

I don't want to give away the story or the premise behind it.  GO grab your copy and experience their journey for yourself.  It is one most definitely worth taking.  Which path will you choose?  #1click and find out!
