Review: Archer's Voice by Mia Sheridan

Add to Goodreads:
When Bree Prescott arrives in the sleepy, lakeside town of Pelion, Maine, she hopes against hope that this is the place where she will finally find the peace she so desperately seeks. On her first day there, her life collides with Archer Hale, an isolated man who holds a secret agony of his own. A man no one else sees.

Archer's Voice is the story of a woman chained to the memory of one horrifying night and the man whose love is the key to her freedom. It is the story of a silent man who lives with an excruciating wound and the woman who helps him find his voice. It is the story of suffering, fate, and the transformative power of love.

THIS IS A STAND-ALONE NOVEL. The first three books in the series need not be read to enjoy this book. New Adult Contemporary Romance: Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

Every once in a while you find a book that completely captivates and consumes you and this book was that for me.
Mia Sheridan is a very talented story teller and I was hooked from the first chapter.
Bree Prescott is  wanting to get away from everything, her friends, her city and the memories that haunt her every day.  She will never forget the day her father was murdered right in front of her and face of the man that killed him.  She finds a small town in Maine, beside the lake and moves into a cottage with her dog.  She finds the people to be really friendly and soon finds a waitressing job.
In her first couple of days she meets Archer Hale.  He is dressed a bit shabby looking, has long uncut hair and a lot of facial hair.  Underneath all of that though she notices his beautiful eyes.  He helps her pick up her shopping after she drops it all over the footpath.  She tries to strike up a conversation with him but he says nothing and walks away.
Bree is intrigued by Archer and begins to ask around about him.  She soon learns that he someone that most people in the town steer clear of as they fear him/don’t know him. 
Bree regularly passes by his house on her way to her favourite spot by the lake and once day her mischievous dog runs through Archer’s open gate so she follows him in. Thus begins her friendship with Archer Hale.  He is not someone to be feared at all, he is a kind and sweet man.  He has no voice box so can’t talk but has no problem communicating with Bree.
This is the story of the awakening of Archer Hale and Bree is the perfect person to bring him back into the light.
I absolutely love this story, I laughed, cried and then cried some more. It was just beautiful to read J
I give this 5+ stars
