RELEASE BLITZ & Review – The Presence of Grace by Anie Michaels




Title: The Presence of Grace

Series: Love and Loss #2

Author: Anie Michaels
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: November 18, 2016


Devon Roberts was familiar with loss. He’d lost his wife and, in a way, he’d lost himself. Moving through life with two kids, doing everything he could to make life good again for his son and daughter, meant romance was the last thing on his mind.

Until he saw her.


She was the first person to make him feel as though loving someone else wouldn’t be wrong.

Even though he thought his loss was unbearable, he never could have fathomed she might have had more slip through her fingers.

He’d fought before; fought for his family, for his love, and for his life. But her fight, although buried deep and festering within, was a fight he wasn’t sure he had the strength to overcome.

All he knew for sure was that his life was better in the presence of Grace.


Heartwrenching is just about the only word that can accurately describe The Presence of Grace.

If you’ve read the synopsis, you will have gathered the basics of the storyline but you need to actually read the book to garner the romance between Grace and Devon and the wonderful relationship that blossoms between Grace and his two children.

The tension between the h and the H is not the greatest, but you do really feel their emotions and their pain in regards to lost family and betrayal. I wanted them to get together from page one but I could see why they were holding back.

The whole book really hits on not just a circumstance of bad luck, but also real tragedy, grief, and heartache. It’s a sweet story about two people letting go of their past and healing emotional wounds. It’s a chick-flick love story where there are two people who are just meant to be together. I loved reading about the characters’ struggles to opening up again, and seeing them find their HEA was such a treat!
