Book Review – Love and the Silver Lining

Love and the Silver Lining

by Tammy L Gray

About the book

Darcy Malone’s dreams of mission work are dashed on the eve of fulfilling them: The Guatemalan school she was going to teach at has closed, and she’s already quit her job and given up her apartment. Stuck in her worst-case scenario, Darcy accepts an unexpected offer to move in with Bryson Katsaros’s little sister, despite the years of distrust between her and Bryson, the lead singer in her best friend Cameron’s band. But as she meets those close to Bryson, Darcy quickly discovers there is more to him than just his bad-boy persona.

Needing to find a purpose for all her sudden free time, Darcy jumps at the chance to care for and train a group of unruly dogs, with the aim of finding each a home before their bereaved owner returns them to animal control. But it’s Darcy herself who will encounter a surprising rescue in the form of love, forgiveness, and learning to let go.

“This lovely second installment of Gray’s State of Grace series continues the story of longtime friends Darcy, Bryson, and Cameron. . . .Gray delivers a beautiful illustration of the power found in the courage to forgive and move on despite disappointment and regret. Those who enjoy contemporary inspirational romances should take a look.”Publishers Weekly

My Thoughts

This book is full of romance, feelings, and emotions. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, because the first book in this series was definitely not my favorite Tammy Gray novel. However, this book is definitely one of the top ones I’ve read of hers!

What makes this book stand out to me? The characters! You will want to read it to get to know Darcy and all her dilemmas.

The main problem is her relationship with her long time best friend Cameron. Darcy is the only one who sees their relationship as uncomplicated.

I really enjoyed getting to know not only Darcy, but also Bryson. Reading their back stories, and seeing how all of that affected them for the rest of their lives…Tammy Gray really put some deep feelings into this story.
