The Wonder of Now by Jamie Beck _ Book Review


Amazon  Goodreads


Moving on has never been harder—or so perfectly unpredictable…

Peyton Prescott would give anything for the carefree life she knew before breast cancer changed everything. But instead of using her second chance to move forward, she’s stuck promoting the memoir her brother convinced her to write, thus reliving the very battle she wants to forget. If she hopes her European book tour will allow her to enjoy revisiting her favorite travel-writing destinations, she’s wrong: her PR whiz is too consumed with his own goals to consider her needs.

Mitch Mathis has relied on discipline to achieve his goals, and with his new firm’s success riding on Peyton’s book launch, he must keep her on task. They’re here for business, not pleasure. And Mitch won’t let unbridled desire harm his professional reputation—not again.

When frustrated expectations and attraction throw the tour into chaos, it challenges everything Mitch and Peyton believe about themselves, life, and love, forcing these opposites to consider whether they can embrace the change they need to grow.



[I received a digital copy for an honest review]

The Wonder of Now is the third book in Jamie Beck’s Sanctuary Sound series. The books in the series are connected by the fact that the heroines were childhood friends. This story is about surviving, friendship, love and hope.

The reminder that, for however long we are on this earth, love and hope will always remain the most important ways we can fill any day.

Peyton‘s story is a difficult one to read. She shares her battle with breast cancer, from her dark times and her hopeful times and everything in between in her memoir. She is such a strong character and its heartbreaking when she lets her insecurities get the best of her, and she can’t see her own strength. Mitch was a great compliment to Peyton and his focus and encouragement helped her through some tough spots during the book tour. Their slow built love story was perfectly paced, realistic, heart-warming and a relationship to admire.

We’re stronger as one because of differences compensate for each other’s weaknesses. If we stick together, we can handle anything.

The Wonder of Now, and the other books in the series, are just overall beautiful reads. Realistic stories of women who deal with personal growth, heartbreaks, hardships, and sickness. Jamie Beck’s Sanctuary Sound is a must-read Womans contemporary fictions series.

We all split apart and walked our own paths for a while, making some mistakes along the way. Maybe we were broken for a bit, but we’re here now and we’ve rebuilt into something stronger. That’s what matters most.
