A couple in secret. Two warring families. This little town isn’t big enough for the both of them. 

Slinging whiskey is all Avery Wells knows how to do, and soon she won’t even have that. If she can’t change her uncle’s mind, her dreams of owning the family watering hole will soon go up in smoke.

Being an outcast is nothing new for Graham Foster, but when it comes to Avery, being on the outs was never apart of the plan. Despite their past, Graham never lost hope that they could find their way back to each other. Convincing Avery of that fact might be a harder sell.

But fighting their pull is the least of Avery’s problems because someone doesn’t want her to win the family bar, and murder isn’t off the table.

Be careful where you seek your refuge…


This book was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Annie Anderson!

Reaching Refuge is the second book in the Shelter Me series and tells the story of Avery and Graham. Each book in the Shelter Me series can be read as a standalone.

Seeking Sanctuary, the first book in the Shelter Me series, was the first book I’ve read by Annie Anderson and since that book, I fell in love with her writing. Reaching Refuge is the fourth book by Annie Anderson I’ve read so far and I cannot wait to read more books written by her.
Reaching Refuge is just like Seeking Sanctuary, a book that kept me on the edge of my seat. I couldn’t stop reading, both books were so addictive and so well written. Annie Anderson did an amazing job in creating these characters and the plot, and I couldn’t stop myself from falling for Graham.

Avery and Graham are both such enjoyable characters and I really liked reading in both perspectives. I love double perspectives, like I mentioned in a lot of my reviews, because it gives the reader a better view of the character’s thoughts and feelings. Avery and Graham both have a different view of what happened in the past, so the double perspective is really handy.

Reaching Refuge is an amazing sequel and such a fast paced read! I cannot wait for the third book in the Shelter Me series, Chasing Cover!
