RELEASE BLITZ & REVIEW: Tell Me Goodnight by Kelsey Kingsley

Title: Tell Me Goodnight

Tessa Lang has dreams of becoming the world's next great author of horror novels. So, when she's given the opportunity to write full-time, she sets out to do just that.

There's just one little problem.

She's not scary. At all.

It seems that her plans are ruined, until she meets heartbroken pianist, Jon O'Dell and his three little girls. Suddenly, she finds herself full of inspiration, and with the advice from her grandmother and best-selling novelist, M.L. Lang, Tessa decides to write what her heart wants - romance.

But as her novel moves steadily along, relationships start to develop, and Jon's heart begins to mend, Tessa finds herself facing another unexpected dilemma.

My Review

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

Kelsey really knows how to break your heart with her words. Jon's story is a tragic one, but it is also a story about healing and moving on. He's stuck in the same routine day after day. He knows he has to take care of his three little girls and does so the only way he knows how. But then Tessa comes along and she changes everything. It's not an instantaneous change, but one that felt very real. Jon is still grieving the life he thought he would have and then this complete stranger comes in and shakes everything up. It's unsettling on many levels. 

I loved everything about this book. It was both heartbreaking and uplifting. Tessa and Jon were perfect for each other. She was patient, understanding and more than willing to just to just be his friend, but she fell hard for his adorable children (who were just the cutest!) and found herself becoming a part of his family. 

While this book is a bit heavy, there is plenty of light moments thanks to a couple familiar faces. (If you haven't read Kelsey's previous books Daisies & Devin and The Life We Wanted, I highly recommend them.) The humor was a welcome aspect and just added another layer to Kelsey's already fantastic story telling. 

About the Author

When I was a wee lassie, I was told by my preschool teachers that I was a natural at storytelling. When I was just a little older than that, an old friend's mother said to me, "Kelsey, one day your books are going to be on the shelves at the library."

Well, Diane, I don't know if my books are ever going to be on the shelves of libraries, but I'm sure as hell going to try.

When I'm not writing stories destined to be bestsellers, I enjoy devouring TV shows, listening to every type of music there is and going to concerts, reading pretty much anything (with a soft spot for romance and certain books located in 18th century Scotland), obsessing over makeup, and pretending to workout.
