Blue Horizons by Kathryn Andrews


5 Stars|Amazon|Goodreads

Each new novel I read from Kathryn leaves me all warm and fuzzy. Her novels have a journey in each of them that leaves you broken at some points and healed at others. It is a beautiful thing. This novel has a few of those journeys in it and you won't be able to forget it anytime soon. Will and Ava are both famous in their own, but in the same way they are both broken. To escape reality and the life that has pulled them both down deep different ways. Throw in some demons hunting the present and scars that need to be healed and this story was heartbreakingly beautiful. I adored everything about this novel. From the emotionally broken characters, to the romance story intertwined with the healing, this novel has the making for a nice night cuddled up with a bottle of wine. I really love a story that pulls me in and makes my heart hurt while I read. Kathryn has a real talent for this. This novel is creature all its own. It is a top read for the year for me and I am definitely going to need a signed copy of it. I adored every page of it. It has its ups and downs and keep your hopeful and wondering about the end. It has it surprises and parts that leave you mouth agape. So jump into this hot NA read. You don't want to miss it.


Will Ashton Music is my motivation. I’ve always believed that, because of it, I would be somebody. Somebody to someone, and something to myself. At age four, I picked up my grandfather’s acoustic guitar and, up until three weeks ago, I’ve never put it down. From a single chord to a full arrangement, music fed my soul. I craved it with every fiber of my being, but now, I just don’t know. That driving force that’s always pushed me has somehow stalled, along with the thrill, the passion, and the familiarity . . . it’s all gone. I’m beginning to worry that my love for music just isn’t enough. As the summer tour finally comes to an end, I head to the Blue Ridge Mountains instead of returning to Nashville. It’s here that I’ve always been able to lose myself amongst the solitude and the lake, but what I didn’t expect to find was her. Wild blonde hair, light blue eyes, and a laugh I find myself trying to coax from her has me completely enamored. She’s quiet, incredibly poised, and driven by secrets as big as the mountains around us. They’re what’s made her untouchable, and left me wanting to know more. Maybe that’s what I need. Maybe I need more. Maybe I need her. Ava Layne They say that life isn’t about how many breaths we take, but how many moments take our breath away. But what if those moments aren’t filled with happiness and love, but something dark and haunting? For me, it’s those moments that’ve shaped and taken over my life. I can’t change who I am, God knows I’ve tried, and, because of this, I’ve accepted the silver lining . . . I’m alive. Fifty-two white keys, thirty-six black keys, ten fingers, seven notes, two friends, and one stage. At the piano, on the stage, with my two best friends, I finally found myself, and I live for those moments. One by one, I collect them, cherish them, patiently waiting for the next, until it arrives and changes everything. That’s the moment I meet him.
