Pat's Review: The Candle Palace

The Candle Palace by Devney Perry
Publisher: Devney Perry LLC (August 20, 2019)
Series: Jamison Valley, 6
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Dual 1st POV

Sometimes a single flame can ignite a love that lasts a lifetime.

Milo Phillips knows the meaning of pain. Suffering through the most intense physical agony of his life, he’s confined to a hospital bed to bear it alone. More than once, he wishes he’d died in the explosion that melted and mangled his skin. Darkness consumes him, snuffing all the joy in his life and leaving an empty hole in its place.

But one day, a flicker of light sneaks into his hospital room, driving away some of the hopelessness. For the first time in months, pain isn’t all he feels.

The flicker’s name is Sara Foster, his new nurse. Milo just hopes that Sara can see past his scars. Because underneath, his heart has begun beating again just for her.

Pat's Review:

Sara Foster is a nurse who works at the Burn Unit in a hospital in Spokane. She has a very soft and giving heart and providing relief and comfort to her patients is her calling. They have a new admission, he was burned in a meth cooking explosion. He is Deputy Sheriff Milo Phillips. We met Milo in the The Copper Smith Farmhouse.

Milo is in extreme pain, compounded by guilt that Jess, his boss, was also injured. Sara is immediately attracted to him, and that never happens to her. Sara gives him peace and instills confidence that this will eventually be over, and he will have his life back. She finds herself pulled to him more and more, even spending her time off sneaking in at night to sit with him. Her nurse administrator and a doctor both comment to her that it’s against so many rules. Milo doesn’t want her to break rules, but she has become his lifeline and a reason to work harder at getting better.

This is a beautiful love story, as all the Jameson Series books are. It’s wonderful to catch up with all our favorite characters, and of course add new ones. This can be read as a stand-alone, but don’t deprive yourself of the pleasure of reading the whole series.
