Four lives. Four stories. Four sets of letters. Four brave souls in need of guidance while facing life's greatest challenges.

The anonymously published Dear Life program is designed to help them step outside of their comfort zones, face their obstacles, and relinquish their demons...and prove their existence.

With their lives teetering between wanting more and losing it all, all four souls dive into the program as a New Year’s resolution, sending them on a crazy, life-altering journey. 

Dear Life, 

Please be kind. 

Yours truly, Hollyn, Jace, Daisy, and Carter.

My Review

I received an advanced copy of this book with the promise of an honest review. 

This is such an interesting concept for a book. Four people from very different backgrounds, come together because they want to change their lives. Well, at least three of them do. One is there against his will and is doing his best to keep everyone at an arm's length and actively not participating. 

These four people are struggling to get their lives on track and the journey they go on is a hard one. Luckily for them, once they enter the Dear Life program they are thrown together and as they learn about each other's trials and tribulations, they realize they they have more in common than they originally thought. 

It's hard to read this book and not see a little bit of yourself (or maybe someone you know) in each of these characters. Hollyn and Jace have suffered devastating losses and are trying to get through the day. Daisy has lived a very sheltered life and finds herself unexpectedly taking the leap into the real world, which is totally unknown to her. And Carter feels as though the whole world is against him and he'll never get to live the life he wants to win. While we may not know exactly what they are going through, there's a good chance we can relate in some way. That aspect drew me in and kept me up into the late hours because I couldn't put it down. 

This story is one of love, loss and ability to have the courage to take your life back. There are some moments that are just absolutely heartbreaking and I cried more than once while reading this book. And not just a regular cry. Like a very ugly, snotty cry. I actually felt the character's pain and suffering and all I wanted to reach into the book and give them a hug. Tell them that things would be okay. I was emotionally exhausted by the end, but there are also plenty of funny and sweet moments that made me smile. Dear Life is perfect book hangover material...a definite must read. 

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if "It's Raining Men" starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing... enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!
