From award-winning author Laura Trentham comes an emotionally layered novel about redemption, second chances and discovering that life is worth fighting for.
At thirty, Greer Hadley never expected to be forced home to Madison, Tennessee with her life and dreams of being a songwriter up in flames. To make matters worse, a series of bad decisions and even crappier luck lands her community service hours at a nonprofit organization that aids veterans and their families. Greer cannot fathom how she’s supposed to use music to help anyone deal with their trauma and loss when the one thing that brought her joy has failed her.
When Greer meets fifteen-year-old Ally Martinez, her plans to stay detached and do as little as possible get thrown away. New to town and dealing with the death of her father in action, she hides her emotions behind a mask of bitterness and sarcasm, but Greer is able to see past it and recognizes pieces of who she once was in Ally. The raw and obvious talent she possesses could take her to the top and Greer vows to make sure life’s negativities don’t derail Ally’s potential.
After Greer is assigned a veteran to help, she’s not surprised Emmett Lawson, the town’s golden boy, followed his family’s legacy. What leaves her shocked is the shell of a man who believes he doesn’t deserve anyone’s help. A breakthrough with Ally reminds Greer that no one is worth giving up on. So she shows up one day with his old guitar, and meets Emmett’s rage head on with her stubbornness. When a situation with Ally becomes dire, the two of them must become a team to save her—and along the way they might just save themselves too.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
After I read the blurb for An Everyday Hero, I knew this book was for me. I knew this would be a book that tugged at my heart and made me smile at the same time. One would think this is not a book filled with smiles and laughter but I disagree. That said, there is some intense and heartbreaking situations in this book. The heroine, Greer, was one sassy, take no nonsense woman. Even after the bad luck and lack of success she’d been facing in her music career, Greer still has a strong, likable personality. Did I say she was perfect? No, she is definitely not perfect. But she was perfect for the situations she found herself in as a result of her poor choices. Because of some trouble Greer causes at a bar (I’ll not give away details) she lands herself in community service. Greer is required to volunteer her musical talents at a center for military veterans and/or their families. During her volunteering, Greer will be assigned two people, with two different situations. They will change her life for the better as she will change theirs.
An Everyday Hero was the first book I read from this author. It definitely won’t be my last. This is a book with all the feels, wonderful primary and secondary characters, a believable premise and a happy ending that is sigh-worthy. The pace is steady and this book can easily be read in one sitting if you have no interruptions. I was engaged from the very first pages all the way through, until I got my happy ending. I’m so glad this book came my way. I absolutely recommend this to anyone who loves novels with great characters, all the feels, and a beautiful ending.
This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂
