Review of Familiar Ties by Naya Nikki

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Familiar Ties by Naya Nikki

A sentimental journey about second chances and the importance of family and friends.

My favorite line: “Little moments like these when the two broken families became one…”

Amy Riley has a beautiful daughter, a husband that’s always away following his dreams, and a devoted best friend that needs her more than he knows.

Max West is a widower raising his daughter, who happens to be best friends with his ex-girlfriend, Amy Riley. He’s struggling to come to terms with the death of his wife, and how to explain it to his daughter.

Told in flashbacks and alternating point of views, Familiar Ties is a sweet romance that deals with big issues: Explaining death to kids, following your dreams verses family responsibilities, tense custody battles, and how an unconventional family can pull together in tough times. Past, present, and future converge in a nicely woven tapestry of special, life-changing moments in each character’s life. This dreamy, melancholy journey will make you laugh, cry, and jump for joy.
