Midnight Lily by Mia Sheridan on January 1st 1970
Holden Scott is the prince of professional football. At least he was before he lost it all . . . or more to the point, before he threw it all away. Now he’s out of a job, out of the public’s good graces, and perhaps just a little out of his mind. So when a friend offers up his remote lodge in the wilds of Colorado, giving Holden some time away to get his life back on track, he can hardly say no.
The last thing he expects is to see a beautiful girl in the woods—one wearing a white, lace dress who appears in the moonlight, and leaves no footprints behind. Is she a dream? A ghost? A product of his muddled imagination? Or something entirely different?
Midnight Lily is the haunting love story of two lost souls reaching for each other in the dark. A tale of healing, acceptance, and the worlds we create to protect our own hearts. It is a story of being lost, of being found, and of being in the place between.

Midnight Lily is a very character-driven story of love, loss and acceptance. A kaleidoscope of colour and vivid imagery, Holden and Lily’s story is a unique concept that delivers a wicked twist that will keep you riveted from beginning to end.
Holden Scott is a man on the edge. A football star whom has taken drastic measures to numb the pain of grief by using pain medication. Succumbing to addiction, he’s lost his way but help is at hand when a good friend lends him his secluded getaway in order to escape the limelight and find himself again.
He never expected to see another person when the nearest dwelling is a few miles away but there is no denying the lady in white that watches him through the trees.
Lily knows the woods like the back of her hand as she befriends the stranger at the lodge. Her art in making this sad man smile a pleasurable distraction as every evening brings something new to their budding friendship; there is only one rule… personal questions are to remain at a bare minimum and yet sometimes you can see someone, truly see them without knowing too much at all.
This is one of those books where you have to go in blind. The synopsis gives the perfect summary without giving too much away and that is for the pure reason that not everything is as it seems. Midnight Lily totally blew my mind because it kept me questioning where this story would lead, making it unpredictable and utterly riveting.
Have your wits about you with this one, it will throw you for a loop, and that is the pure magic of it.
