☆☆➹⁀☆ 4 stars☆➹⁀☆☆


What it’s about:

A new stand-alone Romance from award winning author, Susan Griscom.

When your heart is broken, sometimes all you need is a gentle smile.

Grace Davidson didn’t have the smoothest childhood, but now, years later, she’s ready to start her new life with her amazing new husband—until she discovers his infidelity…with her best friend. Hurt and betrayed, Grace takes off alone for the exotic resort where she should be spending her honeymoon, only to realize it’s as lonely as it sounds. Until her hunky next-door neighbor says hello.

Leo was just a man Grace met while enjoying her un-honeymoon. They became friends, but that’s it. Yet even after she returns home, she can’t get him out of her head. Too bad she’ll never see him again.

Starting over in a new town after finding her dream job, Grace suddenly runs in to Leo in the last place she expects. But is he the man she believes him to be? Or is her heart in danger of being broken wide open?

Broken Wide Open is a gripping wild ride from page one to the end. Susan Griscom has written another gut-wrencher!

Grace Davidson was lucky enough to get a fantastic stepfather, Oliver, after her father died when she was only four. Oliver has her back when her new husband bangs her maid of honor at the wedding reception.

Leo, a handsome marine biologist, just happens to be studying jellyfish in Bora Bora when Grace takes her honeymoon by herself. He is a caring, intelligent man whose secret is eating him up.

These two characters are great together. Their fun, easy relationship is infectious. Of course, when Grace’s vacation is over, she has no hope of seeing Leo again, but she is ready to move on with her life. A new job in a new location is just the start she needs.   When that new start includes running into Leo and his family, Grace opens her self up again to the possibility of love and loss.

Susan Griscom continues to write stories that take you through the wringer and eventually deliver a heart-warming ending.
