My Love Is Blue by Rosemary Danielis is a beautiful, captivating and emotional novel about overcoming grief and finding the strength to live, and love, again.
After the loss of the love of her life, Julian, painter Emma is hiding away in her remote cottage. Mourning Julian’s death, she’s trying to focus on her painting, where she feels that Julian comes alive again. Underneath the layers of paint, Emma finds a kind of dreamlike place where she and Julian can still be together. But when she’s running out of money to pay her rent, Emma is forced to open up her locked-down existence to take on off-duty Police Officer Grayson Tate. He’s opinionated, arrogant and completely charming with a burning desire to learn how to paint, specifically from Emma. Soon Emma develops feelings for Grayson, but how can she possibly fall in love with Grayson without betraying Julian and the love they shared?
I really enjoyed this book! The writing is beautiful and the characters are so relatable and loveable. There are so many layers to the story. It’s not just about finding yourself after the death of your loved one by suicide, but about finding new love and coming back to the land of the living after being struck with your own grief and depression. In addition to Emma’s and Julian’s love and loss and the burgeoning romance with Grayson, there is also an unexpected mystery plot and an evil villain in disguise that adds action and suspense to the story. It’s a book that gives you the feels and draws you in and makes your heart ache for the characters. Reading My Love Is Blue was like riding a rollercoaster of emotions! I also really appreciate the artistic parts with the painting lessons and the description of Emma’s feelings when she painted. It added a truly unique touch to the story.
My Love Is Blue is an intense, heart wrenching, and emotional read that I hope more readers will discover, it so deserves it!
