Overview

Sorrows are something Matty Brooks knows a thing or two about. Having grown up in the projects of New York City, she's seen her fair share. But as an adult, and successful author, Matty is all too happy to leave that life far behind.

Secrets aren't something Dr. Dash Kent knows much about. As a small-town vet with deep ties to his community of Windsor, New York, life has always been pretty straightforward. Until Matty Brooks comes to town.

Redemption is what Brad Brooks wants. As Matty's half brother, he's ashamed of how his family treated her-how they cast her out. But when the olive branch he extends turns deadly and Matty stumbles into Brad's biggest secret, she finds herself cast back into a world of violence and deceit. Now redemption is easy; survival is the hard part.

Fun, well paced story. This book did a great job of being both a mystery/suspense and a romance without going too far in either direction. The characters are well developed and thought through, so they come across as relatively realistic. The suspense was good enough to keep me interested and coming back to the book. Great for a beach or cabin read or to pass time during a long flight. I'm not a big fan of overly mushy or overly descriptive romance novels and this wasn't that - so I didn't have to roll my eyes and groan at the cheesiness that I find in other romance novels. I would recommend this book to friends looking for some fun "chick-lit."

The first thing I have to say about this book is it was very very good. After reading the first book in the series I was not too sure about reading the second book but after knowing Schultz's writing stye I figured I would give it a try because I knew what I was in for this time and I can say I have no regrets deciding to read this book, in fact, I know that if I would not have read this book I would have missed out on a very good book by an author that is starting to find her own voice in the area she chooses to write in. The first thing I do suggest is that you read the first book in the series, A Tainted Mind, first because the books flow together so well and the plot of the first book is pretty much given away in this second book so if you do not want a spoiler be sure to read the books in order. Now on to These Sorrows We See I loved Maddy and Dash's story. This is more of a mystery then a suspense and when I went into reading the book with this knowledge it was much easier for me to enjoy the book and get into the story and the plot without the attitude of "where is the excitement?" I loved how this book had me laughing from the start and I was unable to put it down (I finished it in 2 days). I also enjoyed how the characters from the first book all appeared and were mentioned in this second book so they were not forgotten and they all played major roles in the figuring out what happened in the book. There are also a number or characters that Schultz has left open that she can use in the third book in this series of she chooses. Overall, this series is left wide open and can go anywhere Schultz chooses to take it. I personally hope she takes it as far as she chooses. I can say that she has converted me into a fan after an iffy start in the first book she blew me away in the second book and I can't wait to see what this new author has in store for us next.

I loved These Sorrows We See and I will be checking out Tamsen Schultz's other books. It is hard to describe a book with tragedy as beautiful, but this novel of romance, suspense, and self-discovery was exactly that. The writing was excellent and drew me into the Matty's emotions and helped me understand her feelings although her background is so unrelated to mine that it is hard to imagine living early life that she lived, a life that many people live. I loved watching her growing connection with Dash and the half-brother that she had always rejected. I fell in love with her new friends which assures that I will be checking out other books by this author because it appears that there is overlap in the characters. I love books that are connected even if they do not have the same main characters. And I loved the growing supense but no way did I guess where it was leading! I won this book as one of eight books in the grand prize at an online launch party and I am so please that I discovered Tamsen Schultz though that party. Thank you Ms Schultz.

Good and easy read, fun book with romance and mystery - I looked forward to the conclusion. Nice long book without the rehashing of events & overly descriptive intimate scenes. Only one started to be too much information, I almost quit reading and glad I skimmed over the couple of lines and kept reading. Well worth it.
