Familiar Ties by Naya Nikki (Review by Amy)

***Review From Amy Conley For The Nerd Girl Page***

Given a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review

Max West is a widower raising Phoebe, his four-year-old daughter. Phoebe has to live with the fact that the day she was born is also the day of her mother’s death. As her fifth year without her mother approaches, Phoebe finds solace in her godmother, Amy Riley, and her daughter, Grace Crawford, another single parent family.
Amy Riley is a successful fashion designer who spends most of her days raising her four-year-old daughter, Grace, while her wayward boyfriend is travelling the world making the next best film. As the fifth year without her best friend looms she finds comfort in her ex-boyfriend, Max, and his daughter, Phoebe.
These two “broken” families have a tough week to face as the dreaded day approaches. However through their past, present and debatable future will their choices affect the outcome both parents clearly want and are simply denying? Or will Phoebe and Grace lose the only “whole” family they have ever known?

My Review:
I really loved this book it was a fairly quick read but very promising! When I read the blurb I knew I HAD to read this book and I was not disappointed at all it was everything I was looking for in a book!
The story is absolutely amazing and so beautiful it just pulls at your heartstrings you won’t be able to get through it without getting emotional (be sure to have tissues nearby)
It’s written very well and I love that the author mixed things up to delve into the past a little bit and showed us flashbacks of what happened to lead the character’s where they are and the journey they took to get there. Usually I have a hard time with the whole back and forth past to present thing because things get too confusing or get off track but I didn’t find any of that in this book it has perfect flow and the right kind of balance to keep you captivated and wanting more with every page!
It’s an amazing story of how two friends come to find what was in front of them all along if only they’d would have realized it sooner and finding the perfect moment to capture the love they have for each other and building the family they always longed for!
I’ll definitely be keeping my eye on this author for future books I can’t wait to see what she will be writing next!

    Thanks for reading Familiar Ties. I felt the same way when I read it. I wanted to kick her baby’s father to the curb.
