On the northeast side of town, there is a house.

The house was once magical, filled with love and joy and plans for the future.

Inside its walls are many things that belong to me — my books, the china from my mother on my wedding day, the beautiful cage once home to two birds, now empty, just like me.

And a man.

A man who also belongs to me.

A man I no longer wish to keep.

A man who, no doubt, has not slept, though the sun is rising. Because the house where he waits is where I laid my head to rest every night for eight years. Until last night.

No one who knows me would believe Charlie Pierce, the quiet, bookish girl who never made waves is pulling out of the driveway of a man who isn’t her husband.

But they don’t know me at all.

I don’t even know me.

Not anymore.

They say there are two sides to every story, and I suppose in most cases, that’s true. But the one I live inside of? It has three.

On the northeast side of town, there is a house.

But there is no longer a home.

MY REVIEW

 

Marriage…..sometimes it is the catalyst that spurns all other facets in your life. A partnership that leads you through the good times and the bad. A reality that fosters hope, companionship, and trust in another human being. What happens when that connection is broken? For Charlie and Cameron – it is a reality that they face each and every day. A push to discover what was once the tie that bound them so tightly. How did it unravel so easily?

With that trust shaken to the very core of existence, Charlie begins to doubt all that she has known in her marriage. Leaving her turning towards a friendship from her past. One that holds so many memories that Charlie holds near and dear to her heart. Reese has come back to town at a critical point in Charlie’s life. Bringing that bond from childhood back into Charlie’s life, at the time that she seems to need it the most.

This circle of uncertainty has led Charlie to a crossroads. A cultivation of so much sorrow and indecision. A doubt that lingers even on the best of days. A realization that her marriage will never be the way that it was in the past. Where does Charlie go from here? Why is her life so tattered and torn? Does Charlie have the strength to look past the pain and towards a future that she desperately longs to uncover?

What an absolutely captivating and soul wrenching story!!! Can you imagine living with pain so deep that you don’t want to share the depths of your despair with your friends? This indecision is the reality that Charlie faces day in and day out. An all consuming uncertainty that leads to questions about life, love, and where to go from here. How did the life Charlie and Cameron possessed turn into a string of broken promises and personal heartache?

Let’s talk about Reese……while some may not be a huge fan, I am rooting for him !! The friendship and bond that Reese brings back into Charlie’s life is something that she needs so desperately. After losing his family….Reese turns to Charlie and the friendship that they shared for so many years. The stability and happiness that radiates from the past that Reese and Charlie share can only leave your heart in turmoil over where Reese fits in Charlie’s life. It’s not a tale of black and white….it’s all about the grey areas. The in between moments that will make or break Charlie.

The loss that Cameron and Charlie feel is absolutely devastating. What would you do in their place? It’s hard to say what any of us would say or do if the position was reversed. The one thing I can say is Kandi Steiner has nailed the uncertainty that surrounds Charlie. It’s as real as it gets, and we all know finding happiness is a journey all its own. No one says life is easy, and Charlie knows this better than anyone.

What He Doesn’t Know is gritty, full of heartache, emotionally draining, and most of all full of emotion. Steiner will leave you just as torn between Cameron and Reese as Charlie is. The writing is superb, and the end result will leave you with more questions than answers. The only thing you can count on is the need to get your hands on the second installment of this duet!! Kandi Steiner has truly rocked the literary world with the depth and soulfulness of this amazing piece of literature!!

About Kandi Steiner

Kandi Steiner is a Creative Writing and Advertising/Public Relations graduate from the University of Central Florida living in Tampa with her husband. Kandi works full time as a social media specialist, but also works part time as a Zumba fitness instructor and blackjack dealer.

Kandi started writing back in the 4th grade after reading the first Harry Potter installment. In 6th grade, she wrote and edited her own newspaper and distributed to her classmates. Eventually, the principal caught on and the newspaper was quickly halted, though Kandi tried fighting for her “freedom of press.” She took particular interest in writing romance after college, as she has always been a die hard hopeless romantic (like most girls brought up on Disney movies).

When Kandi isn’t working or writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, talking with her extremely vocal cat, and spending time with her friends and family. She enjoys beach days, movie marathons, live music, craft beer and sweet wine – not necessarily in that order.
