Sifted is book #2 in the A Recipe for Love series, and is the conclusion of Emily and Declan's story. It is told from Declan's point of view.
I asked her to have hope, faith, and trust in us, and then I did the unthinkable: I left.
Now, it's time for me to return and to sift through the pieces that I left behind. I guess my nickname of the Irish Car Bomb is fitting because I went off and left bits of shrapnel behind. I just hope it's not too late to clean up the mess I made.
We only regret the chances we don't take, and honestly, my leaving had nothing to do with Emily—my lovely Lemon Drop.
When I left, I thought I no longer knew who I was. What I know now is that I'm nothing without her by my side. She is the biggest piece of me.
She loved me when I was unlovable. No, she never said the words out loud, either, but her love for me is something I've never doubted. I felt it, I know I did. I promised to be worthy of that love when I returned to her. I'm still not sure that I am, but I need it, and if she'll have me, I'll have her until death do us part.
I meant every word when I told her that my heart would always bring me back to her. She is my home. She is my everything. My yesterday, my today, and my tomorrow.

About the Author
I never thought that I would write a novel, although my English teacher my freshman year in college told me that he would hunt me down if I wasn’t published by the time I was thirty. Thirty came and went. I was busy being a wife and working mother of two and nobody came looking for me. I doubt my sister thought she was about to change my life forever when she got me a book of “Mommy porn” for my birthday in 2012, but that’s exactly what she did. After reading the first book in the trilogy, I rushed out and got the other two books. I became obsessed and read the series several times before learning about Fanfiction. Apparently, I wasn’t the only one who couldn’t get enough. The idea fascinated me and I thought, “I can do that.” I was a nervous wreck when I posted my first story, a one-shot about my new favorite couple. One story led to another and then another. My readers encouraged me to write something original, so that‘s what I did. Thank you to everyone who encouraged me. I couldn’t have done it without you. I love reading, writing, traveling, and spending time with my family. Thank you for going on this journey with me.

4/5 Stars! Sifted is book 2 in the Recipe for Love Series. It is told from Declan's POV. Declan and Emily have a storied history. They fell in love and Declan promised her forever. Then he up and left. He had his reasons. He wasn't sure who he was. He destroyed Emily when he left. Now he is back and ready to claim what is his and he intends to make Emily that he is nothing without her. I loved this second chance romance. I hadn't read book one, so I was worried I would be lost. There were some missing pieces, but the book gives enough background and recap to understand what I missed in book 1. Declan is a great character. He recognizes his flaws and that he loves Emily, needs her. He goes about showing her just how much he loves her and oh my is it beautiful. If you like a second chance romance with a swoony hero, then this is for you. I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
