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.

How or where do I even begin with this review is the million dollar question. When I first read the synopsis, all I could think was- WOW that’s really in an opposite direction of her usual writing. A Football Star??? But I knew it was worth the time as Mia Sheridan’s books always are. If you have the slightest desire to read Midnight Lily, go in completely blind- one glimpse of a spoiler will make for a totally different reading experience, with that being said- this will likely be the most vague review you have ever read.
The beginning started off a bit slow, I wondered where she was going with the plot, and I thought”this is not typical Mia…this has to be more than just a broken football player story.” And then I found myself drawn more and more into her characters, who they were, not only individually but to each other. I felt things starting to get slightly eerie and then I was sucked in to one of the most captivating, unique and hauntingly beautiful, love stories I have ever read. I looked up from my Kindle when I was done, blinked a few times and felt something like this…
Sometimes life takes a turn that sets us on a path that forever changes us- is it for better or worse? I believe it is up to each person and what they make of their circumstances. As humans we are flawed, but our one constant is our desire to love and to be loved. Love crosses cultures and overcomes many obstacles. Midnight Lily digs in and not only reminds you but shows you that love knows no bounds.
