Pieces of a Life, part one in an all new duet in the Life series by Jewel E. Ann is now live!
The summer before fourth grade, Colten Mosley moved into the house across the street from mine, and we became inseparable.
He played the piano and baseball.
I had a penchant for dead things while at the same time imagining what it would be like to kiss Colten.
We were filled with curiosity and overly active imaginations.
We were also forbidden to be more than friends.
But that didn’t stop us.
Weeks before graduation, he annihilated my heart, and it’s been seventeen years since the day I knew I’d hate him forever.
Now he’s back in my life–a single dad and a homicide detective looking over my shoulder while I perform autopsies as one of Chicago’s most gifted forensic pathologists. Then fate throws us a curveball.
Colten saves my life, but he can’t erase the images that now keep me awake at night. And I can’t explain them.
Am I still the girl he’s always loved? Or nothing more than pieces of that life?

Holy Cow my mind is a jumbled mess right now, and I love it! I’m convinced Jewel. E. Ann could write anything and I would devour it. Rom com, yep. Contemporary, absolutely. Romantic suspense, yes please. Her grocery list, all signs point to yes. Anything and everything. Her latest story, Pieces of a Life, book three in the Life series, is just another example of the magnificence of her writing. Her ability to get quickly immerse readers in the story never ceases to amaze me. I know from the very beginning I fell hard and fast for Colten and Josie and couldn’t wait to read their history leading up to present day that has brought these once childhood sweethearts back into each other’s lives. One wanting nothing more that to get back what they lost seventeen years ago. The other set on not giving in to the one that destroyed their heart all those years ago.
Detective Colten Mosley is fantastic at his job. That job brings him face to face with the one person he’s never really gotten over, the only person he has truly ever loved. Also the person whose heart he obliterated in senior year of high school. Josie Watts was his best friend growing up, until she was his everything. He has always known that given the chance he would never let her go again. No matter what.
Josephine Watts was a feisty and inquisitive girl when she was young. She definitely had unique interests. But she has always been unapologetically who she is. As she got older the dynamics between her and Colten changed and they became so much more. She thought they were planning a future together but apparently the only future he had in store for her was heartache.
Seventeen years later both are back in their home town both successful in their careers. Career fields that put them in contact with each other on the regular. Push and pull and old feelings resurface. Then an event noone could have expected. I was left breathless, warring with what is happening and what it means for the future for Colten and Josie. I am obsessed with this duet already and CANNOT WAIT for the conclusion.
My Cr8zysockbookblock Wrap Up
⭐️Star Rating~⭐️✨⭐️✨⭐️✨⭐️✨⭐️~ Five, I am on the edge of my seat waiting for the conclusion to this duet. STARS!!
💭Overall Thoughts~ All the delicious back and forth you crave. This second chance, frenemies to lovers, romantic suspense, with a pinch on paranormal/psychic twist is unputdownable and addictive. I can’t get enough of Jewel E. Ann’s writing. Every book is going to instantly grab my attention and hold me prisoner ( lock me up, baby) from the first word to the last. I instantly one-click any of her releases. Her ability to transition from past to present, trope to trope and flawlessly from one characters POV to the other is so smooth and makes it so easy to just plow right on through. This is for sure one of my TOP DUETS of 2022!
⚠️TRIGGERS~This book has some content that could be disturbing to some readers. Elements of Childhood traumatic death, Death, Scientific specifics surrounding death.( Autopsies etc.) If you would like more specific information feel free to PM me for more specific details.
