Wexler by Erica Chilson

Struggling with an empty nest, the grieving process is taking its toll on the Wexler and Kline households, reaching all the way to Fairport to affect Auggie’s behavior. Suicide impacted the paths their lives have taken and how they view the world around them. Hopeless from the lack of answers, when the one person who could explain why no longer has a voice.

Lives permanently intertwined for over three decades, Adam Wexler still holds a torch for Lisa Kline after all these years, not realizing the envy he felt over Patrick Kline has shifted to the deepest of friendships.

Entering a new stage in life, where spoiling grandchildren will be their greatest joy, Adam, Patrick, and Lisa find hope, happiness, clarity, and an unforeseen change in their relationship.

All Hollows’ Eve, where the veil between the living and dead is at its thinnest, Adam is seeking answers from his son on the anniversary of the suicide. Instead, Adam finds acceptance that he’ll never know why, while giving himself permission to move forward with his life.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

This is the 10th book in this series, and whilst you need not have read them all to understand the dynamics, it would most definitely help. If you choose to read it with no prior knowledge, then I would suggest that you keep reading, as you will get into the flow. It will probably have you eagerly downloading the earlier books and getting totally drawn into this amazing Blended world.

As well as bringing us a friendship which is deep and heartfelt, it also reveals that their feelings towards each other are conflicted. I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed the three of them finally working out how best they should live their lives much more closely intertwined. In addition to the years long issue, there is real emotional confusion in the protagonists' minds between sadness due to death and happiness due to new life.

One of Chilson's shorter books, this covers a brief time period, yet a huge shift in the lives of three people and a great move towards their future happiness. There is definitely a feeling of redemption and unexpected peace delivered to all three of them – and I loved it.

Erica Chilson does not write in the 3rd person, wanting her readers to be her characters. Therefore, writing a bio about herself, is uncomfortable in the extreme.

Born, raised, and here to stay, the Wicked Writer is a stump-jumper, a ridge-runner. Hailing from North Central Pennsylvania, directly on the New York State border; she loves the changes in seasons, the humid air, all the mountainous forest, and the gloomy atmosphere.

Introverted, but not socially awkward, Erica prides herself on thinking first and filtering her speech. There are days she doesn’t speak at all. If it wasn’t for the fact that she lives with her parents, giving her a sense of reality, she would be a hermit, where the delivery man finds her months after expiration.

Reading was an escape, a way to leave a not-so pleasant reality behind. Reading lent Erica the courage she gathered from the characters between the pages to long for a different life. Writing was an instrument of change, evolving Erica into the woman she is today- a better, more mature, more at peace thinker.

Erica has a wicked mind, one she pours out into her creations. Her filter doesn’t allow all of it to erupt, much to her relief. Sarcastic, with a very dark, perverse sense of humor, Erica puts a bit of herself into every character she writes.
