    3,5 starsThe first two books in the series blew me away I love them both to pieces It is why I was delighted to hear that the author decided to write onebook in the series.Now when I finished it, I can t say that I loved it as much as I loved the previous books Actually I have very conflicting feelings about it There were a lot of moments that reminded me WHY I loved this series so much, and as always I admired this special talent of Nick Wilgus to make readers cry and laugh on the sam 3,5 starsThe first two books in the series blew me away I love them both to pieces It is why I was delighted to hear that the author decided to write onebook in the series.Now when I finished it, I can t say that I loved it as much as I loved the previous books Actually I have very conflicting feelings about it There were a lot of moments that reminded me WHY I loved this series so much, and as always I admired this special talent of Nick Wilgus to make readers cry and laugh on the same page Not many authors are capable of it But I also have to admit, that this book has other moments that I personally found pretty annoying, and if someone would have asked me after I had finished it,WAS IT REALLY NECESSARY TO HAVE THE BOOK 3 , I would have probably answered withNoI started this book totally virgin, it is why the beginning put me IMMEDIATELY in a state of shock I don t think I spoil you the story if I ll say, that Noah died 6 years ago and we meet Wiley and Jackson at the period of time when they try to adopt Tony,a seven year old boy They want an orphan kid, whom nobody else wants, and yes, you can be sure, that Tony doesn t have a line of needy couples behind he is a messed up traumatized deaf kid with HIV and, according to the reports in his file, about 40 percent of his body, including most of his low back, his right hip, and his genitals, had been severely burned when he was four year old Of course it is not that easy and cloudless in RL for our MCs as one can imagine There are some obstacles on their way to a happy family Tony s health, Tony s mother who is in jail but who still has her rights to decide WHO can adopt her son, then there are suddenly some personal problems of our married couple.Though the life has never been EASY for Wiley and Jackson, but they always managed it the best way.Nick Wilgus has presented Wiley Cantrell, his first person narrator, always from both sides not just as a loving and caring father, but also as a respectful and passionate partner In Go Tell It on the Mountains he has to face one of the most important choice in his relationship of nine years My favorite parts of the book include Tony and Wiley Nick Wilgus writes MAGIC if it about Tony And OMG, HOW he does it It is always SOOOO personal and intimate and emotional and heart breakingHe DID already magic to me making me to a fan of the series, because I NORMALLY DON T LIKE KIDS IN MY.BOOKS Not at all But I couldn t have enough of Noah, and I couldn t have enough of Tony I think it could have been a fantastic book, maybe a 5 stars book for me, if the author hadn t brought Amelia in the story The idea itself, to adopt two children, didn t convince me Amelia appeared from nowhere and doesn t matter how I really tried to like her, I didn t, unfortunately Just the opposite her presence suddenly reminded me that I actually dont t like kids in my books It was too much of her, she talked too much, and BECAUSE Tony couldn t talk but just sign, his character downgraded unexpectedly to a secondary role AndI started to lose my interest in the story Thanks God, the last part of the book has been devoted to Tony alone, even if the circumstances were dramatic Bottom line Nick Wilgus is a great writer, who can make you smile, laugh and cry hot swap non stop I believe that he can inspire people to adopt needy children And it is awesome The author tells the story mostly with DIALOGUES The whole book is written in the form of dialogues You HAVE to like it to enjoy it I don t think this series needsbooks If Nick Wilgus will decide to write onesequel, I think, I ll skip it You just can t miss it if you ve already read the first two books of the series You have to read it PeriodARC provided to Gay Book Reviews by the publisher in exchange for an honest review

    As usual, I begin my review with my notice to you that this isn t a romance This is a family drama about an established couple, Wiley Cantrell and Jackson Ledbetter, who ve been together for many years, and who ve both seen heartbreaking tragedy and loss I begged for an early copy, and Nick graciously provided me with one, before the book was even listed on Goodreads, before I had even seen a cover or a proper blurb.I didn t care I ve been waiting anxiously for this book to arrive, waiting wi As usual, I begin my review with my notice to you that this isn t a romance This is a family drama about an established couple, Wiley Cantrell and Jackson Ledbetter, who ve been together for many years, and who ve both seen heartbreaking tragedy and loss I begged for an early copy, and Nick graciously provided me with one, before the book was even listed on Goodreads, before I had even seen a cover or a proper blurb.I didn t care I ve been waiting anxiously for this book to arrive, waiting with bated breath to find out whether Nick would do what he hinted at in book 2 and on Facebook, where he routinely posted teasersAnd he did I think he had to, and this 3rd book wouldn t have felt as authentic if he hadn t done what he did.Noah dies between book 2 and book 3 Since I hadn t seen the blurb when I read this book, I didn t know And this isn t a spoiler, because it s right there in the blurb for this book Noah dies But I knew before I even started reading Deep down, I knew Because it had to happen, it had to Wiley has always known that Noah likely wouldn t make it past the age of 13 or 14, once he became a teenager The odds were stacked sky high against his survival, and I knew I think that may have been the reason why Wiley was so adamantly against putting Noah in a home, to the point of defying his entire family, or even sending him to a special school, because he knew, he KNEW, that their time would be short, that it would come to an end much sooner than either of them was ready for In this book, we see Wiley grieve His pain is real, it s palpable, it jumps off the pages into your heart and tears it to shreds He lashes out in anger, and there were times when I wasn t sure that Wiley and Jackson would make it Because not only did they lose Noah, but when their new foster son Tony, deaf, HIV positive, malnourished and severely neglected by his mother, falls ill with pneumonia, something his little body isn t equipped to handle, it s as if history might repeat itself, and Wiley loses it for a while.See, Wiley hasn t quite let go of Noah, not even after six years have passed, not even if he knows that Noah wouldn t want him grieving like this, and with Tony, he gets a second chance to not lose a child To defy the odds Noah couldn t, to win this fight, when he lost the first one Still, I didn t feel as if Wiley saw Tony as a replacement for Noah, even though Tony resembles Noah in so many ways, but I think Wiley definitely saw Tony as his redemption, to right all the mistakes he made with Noah I cried so many tears while reading, but I don t regret a single one I cried for Wiley and for Noah, I cried for Tony, this most adorable little boy, whose life has been so tragic up until he finds a home with Wiley and Jackson, and I even cried for Mrs Ledbetter and Jackson, because death visits the family again Nick Wilgus sets a quick pace in this novel by switching between moments of utter despair, moments of quiet grief, and moments that will have you in stitches Usually, for the latter, Mrs Ledbetter, Jackson s mother, is present She still doesn t mince words, but Wiley gets her He sees beyond her sharp tongue and outrageous words, and there s a kind of kinship between the two When tragedy strikes again, we finally see the real vulnerability in this woman, the one only hinted at between the lines so far, and I was very happy to see Wiley s momma form a tentative friendship that isn t based so much on similar outlooks on life, but on similar experiences I think they get each other eventhan Wiley gets her Much like his mother in law hides behind her outrageousness, Wiley hides behind jokes and snark, and occasionally anger In contrast, Jackson deals very differently with grief and fear, and the two come to blowsoften than not, until Wiley pulls his head out of his ass.When Amelia joins the little Cantrell Ledbetter family, she soon becomes the daughter of Jackson s heart She feels older than her years, which is understandable after having lost her father, and then her mother as well, but she also is still a little girl as well She s in complete contrast to Tony, of course, but she s kind to him, and even bonds with Grandma Ledbetter I was also quite happy to see some closure to the tension and disapproval between Momma Cantrell and Wiley, as well as Billy, Wiley s brother Perhaps losing a grandson nephew and seeing your son brother nearly croak from grief and pain helps you overcome your bigotry and anger, and you find yourself softening to the point of wanting to make amends It was long overdue, and it s a real testament to Wiley s strength of character that he doesn t hold grudges I don t know that I would have been so forgiving after what they put him through This is definitely a book that should be read at least twice, so you can accurately capture the many nuances Nick so carefully and brilliantly builds into his writing, to allow you to read between the lines, to get those OMG and AHA moments that ever so subtly creep up on you I could probably write an entire essay about this book, because it touched me so deeply, because it made me feel all the things, because Nick has yet again created an utter masterpiece, and because, like Wiley, I m not ready to let go I d like to hearfrom them all Soon, if I m honest Even if it s just a little novella to catch up with them in a few years time I received a free copy of this book from its author A positive review was not promised in return

    I ll be honest and admit I was scared to read this third book in Nick Wilgus s Sugar Tree series Not because I thought it would be bad oh no But because Noah is gone, and I loved that little boy so much I couldn t imagine being back with Wiley and Jackson, and no Noah, since the heart of the first two books really was the love between a father and a son I knew the author was going to break my heart all over again, so I ll warn you now bring tissues, you ll need themHe taught me how toI ll be honest and admit I was scared to read this third book in Nick Wilgus s Sugar Tree series Not because I thought it would be bad oh no But because Noah is gone, and I loved that little boy so much I couldn t imagine being back with Wiley and Jackson, and no Noah, since the heart of the first two books really was the love between a father and a son I knew the author was going to break my heart all over again, so I ll warn you now bring tissues, you ll need themHe taught me how to deal with kids like him And now I m going to do it We re going to do it, Jack We re going to find some traumatized, messed up kid and love him back to the real world And if we can do that, then Noah s death won t have been some pointless, stupid thing It ll mean something good could come out of it And I don t know about you, but I need to know that his life wasn t just a cosmic joke Wiley broke my heart He reached in, grabbed it from my chest, and it just shattered in his hand It s been six years since Noah died, and Wiley wants nothingthan to be a daddy again No matter how hateful his family still is, or even as disbelieving as Jackson s parents are, when Wiley meets Tony, he knows this is the little boy for them Tony is deaf, has HIV, and was burned pretty severely in a meth fire his mom started when he was four Believe me, when I met him, I wanted to wrap him in my arms and love him.Please find my full review at Rainbow Book Reviews

    Have you ever read a book with a true HEA that leaves you gutted and crying You might think the two things are incompatible but well, let me begin at the beginning I ll start by saying this is a love story, but it isn t a romance There is a difference, as you will discover And it does have a Happy Ever After ending, or as close to that as it is possible to get without a crystal ball.Go Tell It on the Mountains is book three in the Sugar Tree series This series of stunning books tells the Have you ever read a book with a true HEA that leaves you gutted and crying You might think the two things are incompatible but well, let me begin at the beginning I ll start by saying this is a love story, but it isn t a romance There is a difference, as you will discover And it does have a Happy Ever After ending, or as close to that as it is possible to get without a crystal ball.Go Tell It on the Mountains is book three in the Sugar Tree series This series of stunning books tells the story, in first person, of Wiley Cantrell and his little family Wiley and his girlfriend used meth and had unprotected sex, which resulted in little Noah being born addicted to meth and with the agonizing complications of severe birth defects I m not giving away any spoilers that you can t get from this book s blurb Between books two and three, Noah has died, but the void left by his death fills Wiley s thoughts and the pages of this book with the deepest of sorrows, even while everyone tries to move on with their lives.Wiley and his husband, Jackson, miss Noahthan words can say, but they also miss being parents Not satisfied with adopting a child with no challenges, Wiley wants to love a child who really needs them, so they foster Tony with the idea that eventually they would like to adopt him Tony is deaf, has HIV, is plagued with night terrors and can t connect with strangers due to an as yet unnamed trauma in his past Along the way, Wiley and Jackson also bring into their home a little girl who is bright, misses her dead mother and is way too adult for her years With these two children wrapped around their hearts, Wiley and Jackson begin the difficult transition from parents fully involved with their grief to parents who open their hearts and home to two children who need their love.As with the first two books, the secondary characters are so wholly developed that it is almost incorrect to consider them as secondary to the story The two grandmothers are just as flawed as everyone else, but so full of love that their failings become endearing strengths rather than weaknesses The children Tony, Amelia and even Noah bring love and challenges that lead to personal growth for Wiley, Jackson and the rest of the extended family Every character is critical to the plot and to the lives of the main characters, Wiley and Jackson There are crises to encounter that require everyone pulling together to get through There are even encounters with fully formed beings whose existence it is difficult to explain rationally.The ending of the book is heart meltingly perfect and left me reeling How can you say goodbye to a child who needs you as much as you need him and still come out whole Nick Wilgus is a master wordsmith who makes this conundrum work and brings the reader to the conclusion that she has read something transcendent To say I loved this book is too weak an analysis, but I don t have words to truly express how meaningful this story is I recommend this as a book you must read

    By far, one of the most heartbreaking stories I ve ever read And what makes it even worse is that we d gotten to know, and love, these guys through the two previous books, and with all the pain they ve suffered, it s just unimaginable that it not only continues, but gets a lot worse There is no big surprise because the blurb itself is a big neon warning sign If you go into this unprepared, that s on you.But, this is also a story of second chances, unconditional love, moving forward, and creat By far, one of the most heartbreaking stories I ve ever read And what makes it even worse is that we d gotten to know, and love, these guys through the two previous books, and with all the pain they ve suffered, it s just unimaginable that it not only continues, but gets a lot worse There is no big surprise because the blurb itself is a big neon warning sign If you go into this unprepared, that s on you.But, this is also a story of second chances, unconditional love, moving forward, and creating a life worth living We lost Noah, and fortunately it was in between books, but his memory is prominent in this story because Wiley can t let go Noah and Wiley defied the odds, defied family and society, defied anything and everything because for so long their love for each other was all they had Then they welcomed Jack into their lives and created a family The south continued to rail on their lifestyle , the church was still very unGod like, but the Cantrell and Ledbetter families made tremendous strides in learning to not only accept their little family, but love them as they were And then Noah dies So completely unfair, but it was alluded to in book two that some things were happening with Noah, but still so unfair.Tony is the star of this book He is by far the cutest, most adorable, and most tragic child to live and no wonder Wiley wanted him, he saw Noah in everything about the little boy He was not a replacement, and I never once felt like it was unfair that Noah died and Wiley and Jack bought a new son It was nothing like that Six years pass and Wiley is still haunted by his loss, but he and Jack have the ability to help another unwanted and special child, and they do.What they didn t expect was two children Amelia has her own tragedies to overcome, yet she is healthy and not deaf, just orphaned and alone I liked her okay, but she did come across as a little sarcastic for a nine year old, especially one that was a little rude and ungrateful maybe that s not too unusual and just like a child I just know she irked me a bit and I wanted her to get over herself She eventually ends up being a great daughter and big sister to Tony, so I got over it.I loved that Wiley and Jack s moms became friends Mrs Ledbetter deals with a heartbreak of her own and that put a little perspective in her life She is still the same woman who spoke her mind without apology, but you see a vulnerability in her that was missing in the earlier books Mrs Cantrell and Billy seemed to put their church s teachings aside and became a real family to Wiley I guess when you lose a grandson and nephew then see your son and brother fall apart, it becomes a big wake up call on how you ve wronged the guy I was glad to see that aspect of the story find closure.I always write long reviews for this series so I will stop now Just be prepared for tears, grief,tears, sad farewells, and family drama But all that is tempered with the typical humor that we remember It s a beautiful tragedy, but I guess that s life.The Blogger Girls
