Anniversaries are usually occasions worth celebrating, but when your fourth wedding anniversary is also the first anniversary of your husband’s death, you’ll only want to drink your sorrows away. And that’s exactly what Phoenix Nightingale does.
In the small town of Breckshire Wyoming, everybody knows everybody, so when Evan Tyler walks into the same bar she’s drowning her grief in, Phoenix knows that he’s new in town. What she doesn’t know is that he’s just moved in a few houses down from her and is about to try his hardest to break through the wall she’s had up for a year.
Phoenix has experienced a tragedy that nobody ever wants to experience. In the year following her husband’s death, she’s had what her parent’s considered embarrassing public meltdowns, and lost some friends along with her career. Just as she feels she’s at her very lowest, Evan barges into her life, forcing her to get out of the house and look at life a little differently.
He vows to help her, encouraging her to rise from the ashes and live once again. Evan doesn’t know that just by being in her life, he’s bound to send her into a tailspin, because both of them are keeping things from each other, and Phoenix may not be strong enough to handle what she finds out.
Will she pull him into the dark with her, or will he be able to resurrect Phoenix, freeing her from the depths of her depression, and showing her that surviving isn’t the same as living?

Sweet Jesus. Resurrecting Phoenix just gutted me. The main character’s journey toward finding solace and a her happily after made me cry. Not overly dramatic sobbing but the slow leak out of your eyes tears that you just cannot stop because your heart is so immersed in sadness.
However, I wasn’t the only one drowning. Oh my angst and heartache. Phoenix lost the love of her life and it decimated her world as she knew it. For the last year, she has just allowed herself to wallow in her sadness. She’s shut out family and friends, lost her job – it’s almost like she gave up on living when her husband died. As I read her story, I could feel her pain and suffering. The absolute agony she was enduring leaps from the pages and tugs at your emotions.
So when her new neighbor Evan shows her that it’s not about getting over a lost love but more so that it’s about finding her new normal, the hope within your soul blooms. He becomes the catalyst that makes Phoenix want her life back. He helps by being present but it is Phoenix that truly picks up the pieces of her life. By the end of the book, I no longer felt sadness but pride for her accomplishments.
Theirs is a sweet love story. Their romance slowly builds in intensity as does the passion between Evan and Phoenix. I loved every moment – it is a truly beautiful story.
With each new book Isabel Lucero releases, her writing style becomes more powerful and the impact that her characters has on me has become incredible. It doesn’t matter who she creates as her male lead, I always fall in love. She has had me lusting over male escorts to street gangsters and now I want her guy next door. It’s awesome.
So if Isabel has written the book, I want to read it and recommend it to others. I definitely suggest you check Resurrecting Phoenix out.
