Review ~ Beautiful Graves by L.J. Shen

Beautiful GravesBeautiful Graves by L.J. Shen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Beautiful Graves was a really good read. It was good to get some backstory and see how Everlynne met both Joe and also Dom. I had a feeling that the twist was going to be good, and I managed to pick it before it happened. I didn’t want to dislike any characters but I started to after secrets were revealed. I really hoped that Everlynne would find her happily ever after.

I was a bit annoyed by Ever when she couldn’t make a decision for herself, considering that she was not a child anymore. She wouldn’t reach out to her family and friends - especially the one guy who meant the most to her, and was living a quiet boring life. I would’ve liked Ever a lot more if she would’ve grown into a stronger person earlier. I felt the ending was a little rushed. Finally things were on track, then the story was over.

Title: Beautiful Graves
Author: L.J. Shen
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Published: October 4, 2022

From USA Today bestselling author L.J. Shen comes a passion- and angst-charged story about a woman caught between a secure relationship and a once-in-a-lifetime spark with her muse.

They say first loves are oftentimes the end of one’s innocence.

Those words couldn’t ring truer for Everlynne Lawson, whose first brush with romance came with a heartbreak … and the thing that seems to follow her everywhere she goes. Death.

After a great tragedy, Everlynne loses all she cares about—her dreams, her family, and her soulmate, Joe.

Guilt-ridden, Everlynne decides to isolate herself in Salem, Massachusetts. A shell of the woman she once was, she takes her days one at a time, careful not to allow herself the joy she believes others in her life were robbed of. But when the mysterious, handsome Dominic storms into her life, it becomes more difficult to stay in solitude. Dominic is different: adventurous, joyous, with lust for life and a passion to make her his.

Everlynne is on the cusp of reinventing herself once again when the old wounds of her past are resurrected, rawer than ever. There is nothing worse than being in love with two men.

Especially when one of them hates you.
