Camryn has been happily married for several years when her husband, Marcus, asks for a divorce out of the blue. The same night, her high school sweetheart, Holden, is back in town after being away for the last 8 years, and he is determined to win her back. But Camryn has first to come to terms with her husband’s decision while at the same time taking care of their two young girls, Ellie and Sophie. On top of all this, a dark secret from her past threatens to break her all over again when the man responsible reappears, and Camryn receives a threatening letter. Will Camryn be able to trust Holden again, and keep the darkness at bay?

Dust to Dust by S.P. Cervantes is a contemporary romance, and the first installment in the Broken Fairy Tale series. There will be 4 books in the series, each one a spin-off with a different main character. In Dust to Dust, the descriptions of the feelings between Camryn and Holden are well written if a bit repetitious. In addition, the author knows how to keep the sex scenes tasteful without giving too much details. I particularly liked the omnipresence of music in the book. In fact, the title Dust to Dust comes from a song by the Civil Wars, a song about loneliness and letting a lover in. Other artists mentioned are Coldplay, Taylor Swift, Beyoncé, Katy Perry, Imagine Dragons and Bruno Mars. If you wanted to, you could set up a playlist to go with this book! There are also references to “Seinfeld” and “Reservoir Dogs”, a TV show and a movie I love. The ending is satisfying even though I would have liked a little bit more background information into the perpetrators of the crimes.

In conclusion, I enjoyed reading Dust to Dust by S.P. Cervantes, but I thought the author left some questions unanswered. However, maybe this was intentional, and I am curious to see what the next book in the series will be about.

Dust to Dust by S.P. Cervantes was sent to me for free in exchange for an honest review.
