Blog Tour + Review: Don't Speak by Katy Regnery

From New York Times bestseller Katy Regnery comes a new twist on a beloved fairytale. 
In this modern retelling of The Little Mermaid, a fisherman’s daughter from an Outer Banks island untouched by time, meets the son of the North Carolina governor at a fancy party she helps to cater. Laire, who wants more from life than her little island can offer, is swept away by wealthy, sophisticated Erik, who is, in turn, entranced by her naiveté and charm. The two spend a whirlwind summer together that ends on the knife-point of heartbreak and forces them to go their separate ways. 

Years later, when fate finds them together once again, they will discover the terrifying depth of the secrets they kept from each other, and learn that shattered hearts can only be healed by a love that willfully refuses to die. 

All novels of Katy Regnery’s "A modern fairytale" collection are written as fundraisers. 10% of the e-book sales for in March and April 2017 will be donated.

About Katy Regnery

 New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Regnerystarted her writing career by enrolling in a short story class in January 2012. One year later, she signed her first contract and Katy’s first novel was published in September 2013. Twenty-five books later, Katy claims authorship of the multi-titled, New York Times and USA Today Blueberry Lane Series, which follows the English, Winslow, Rousseau, Story, and Ambler families of Philadelphia; the six-book, bestselling ~a modern fairytale~ series; and several other standalone novels and novellas. Katy’s first modern fairytale romance, The Vixen and the Vet, was nominated for a RITA® in 2015 and won the 2015 Kindle Book Award for romance. 
Katy’s boxed set, The English Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1–4, hit the USA Today bestseller list in 2015, and her Christmas story, Marrying Mr. English, appeared on the list a week later. In May 2016, Katy’s Blueberry Lane collection, The Winslow Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1-4, became a New York Times E-book bestseller. 
In 2016, Katy signed a print-only agreement with Spencerhill Press. As a result, her Blueberry Lane paperback books will now be distributed to brick and mortar bookstores all over the United States. 
 Katy lives in the relative wilds of northern Fairfield County, Connecticut, where her writing room looks out at the woods, and her husband, two young children, two dogs, and one Blue Tonkinese kitten create just enough cheerful chaos to remind her that the very best love stories begin at home.
OMG OMG OMG, such an amazing book!

I won't talk about the story, because I don't want to spoiler anything...but I have to say that:

1. The love between Laire and Erik is one of the purest and truest I've ever read about. I fell in love with this couple since the first page of this book, I've cheered for them, I've believed in them even in their most difficult times.
2. The description of the different lives of Laire and Erik, one young girl from a small secluded island and one rich boy from the city, was done magisterially. I loved their acceptance of each other, notwithstanding the several differences between them (living style, beliefs, social status)...
3. I think, no, I'm sure, that Erik's become my new ideal boyfriend. I fell in love with him almost immediately... Erik is a kind, generous, loving guy who falls for the girl of his dreams and never really surrender before reaching his happily ever after.

And OMG, there were so many moments when my heart swelled with emotions, sorrow, happiness... This book was a rollercoaster of feelings, but in a good good good way... and it never felt overdramatic to me!

I loved both the first and the second part, especially because one thing has always been clear from the beginning of this book: the love between Laire and Erik is unique, immense and invincible.

Kate Regnery, thank you thank you thank you for writing such an amazing book!
