When Never Comes Reviews
Great read, kept me interested the entire book! Read it in 5 days, which is rare for me. My insomnia helped , but I finished it between 3-5 am- passing on the gym to find out what happens.
It’s a nice book to read in one sitting or while stuck on an airplane. There’s nothing spectacular about the book but it’s by no means a bad read. It was an enjoyable enough experience.
There are many things I enjoyed in this novel. I really liked the hero, but I became frustrated with the heroine. Loved the little girl. Overall enjoyable, I would read other books by Ms. Davis. Happy reading 📚!

This was my first book by Barbara Davis and I am eager to read more from her backlist! I expected one thing from this story, more mystery, less heart - and I have to say, I’m incredibly pleased with what I got!
I received an advance copy. All opinions are my own.
When Never Comes by Barbara Davis is a heartfelt and insightful look into the long-term damage of a traumatic childhood and the possibility of happiness in its wake.
