My musings…


Dear Life by Meghan Quinn will grab readers’ attention from the first page and won’t let go.  Ms. Quinn’s characters and story will entrance you!

These characters will captivate readers.  Life has beaten these four characters down in very different ways, but each one is left reeling, unable to move on and unable to find peace.  With each passing step, they earn reader sympathy and our desire to see them heal. We want them to find solace in each other, and we yearn for them to heal, to find freedom, to find acceptance, and to find love within themselves and within each other.

Not only will the characters consume readers, but this story will stick with them long after closing the book. Each character has this emotional journey, and Meghan Quinn makes readers feel it all, the good and the bad.  At the end of the book, though, this author leaves readers with hope.  Hope that people can heal, hope the people can find love again, and hope that the future can be brighter, better, and more beautiful.  This is not a story of tragedy, but a story of hope.

Meghan Quinn’s talents absolutely shine with Dear Life.  It is poignant and beautiful, exposing the raw and emotional ramifications of life tearing a person down.  But Meghan Quinn also shows the audience that through each tragedy there is something to learn, some way to become stronger and better, and possibly to find love again! This life-altering story is one the should be read world-wide for the themes alone, so her incredibly beautiful words are just icing on the cake.

ARC received in exchange for an honest review.


Four lives. Four stories. Four sets of letters. Four brave souls in need of guidance while facing life’s greatest challenges.

The anonymously published Dear Life program is designed to help them step outside of their comfort zones, face their obstacles, and relinquish their demons…and prove their existence.

With their lives teetering between wanting more and losing it all, all four souls dive into the program as a New Year’s resolution, sending them on a crazy, life-altering journey.

Dear Life,

Please be kind.

Yours truly, Hollyn, Jace, Daisy, and Carter.

Dear Life,

Not going to lie, you truly know how to test someone’s will. As I write this letter, I can’t help but glance over at Jace and notice the acute pain he’s experiencing. A daughter, the man has a daughter but had to give her up. How is that fair? It’s not, that’s obvious from the way he could barely talk about it.

How is it fair that I’m a widow?

That’s not fair either, but there you are, giving us these amazing gifts like the unconditional love of a man, or the sweet, contagious love of a daughter, and without warning, you rip them away from us?

Your actions make me cry. Your plans tear me apart. Your involvement in my sanity is eating me alive.

But, then you do something like today. You bring four strangers together who know nothing about each other and expose their brokenness, their common heartbreaks, and give them something to breathe for.

The mutual need for companionship, for understanding.

I know what it’s like to lose someone. I know the emptiness that slowly erodes your heart. I can help him heal, which in return, will help me. If this is the first step of letting go, then I’m proud to say that I’m ready to take that first step.



Dear Life,

How do you know if people like you? If they are being nice to be nice, or if they genuinely want to be nice to you? I’m not quite sure how to read Jace, Hollyn, and especially Carter.

He scares me, but then again, he’s so much like me. Wanting to be free, wanting to break out of the confines, the imprisonment he’s been living in. I know the feeling. But where he seems to have someone holding him back, I have fear keeping me in place.

Fear, probably my biggest enemy. I’m scared for so many reasons, but one of my biggest fears is never knowing what it’s like to experience life, to live on the edge, and to laugh with true friends.

Do you think they like me? Or do you think they pity me?

I have no clue how to approach them and I don’t want to look desperate. Gosh, why is this so hard?

I’m ready to let go of the old Daisy, but there is that little hint of fear dragging me backward with every positive thought. How do I push that fear away? Just dive in head first, sidestepping past the worry? Am I brave enough to do that?

I sure hope so.

Kind regards,


Dear Life,

Letting go. Huh, easier said than done when it still sits so fresh in your mind. There isn’t a minute that goes by that I don’t think about Hope, that I don’t picture her face, or smell her sweet, fresh baby scent. So how am I supposed to let that go when I’m still grieving? How could I ever stop grieving the loss of my flesh and blood?

Fuck, the pain is too overwhelming to even think about anything else.


Dear Life,

Fuck you.



About the Author:

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they may be humped.

Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.

Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores, wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife. Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!
