About the Author
Deborah King is a spirited woman who was inspired to pursue her dreams due to her mother’s death from early onset Alzheimer’s disease. She has the unique ability to read people and tackle life’s hardships.

Deborah is an acclaimed, distinctive new voice in romantic women’s fiction. After raising two children, working with a not-for-profit wildlife rescue organization, and reading too many books to count, she retired from her personal training and weight management business to follow her dream of writing.

She is extremely grateful for having the opportunity to work with many different people sharing and teaching what inspires her, which you’ll catch glimpses of in her books.

Deborah’s lived in several diverse areas in her city as well as three years in a rural setting. She lives in Missouri with her supportive husband, two rescue cats, who believe they’re dogs, her mini fitness store, and her eclectic collection of books

About the book
She’s wreaked havoc in everyone’s lives. Can she find forgiveness… even from within?
Former drug addict Melinda desperately wants to make amends for years of misguided aggression. Fresh out of rehab and in control of her type of bipolar disorder, she’s grateful to have a secure job and a safe homestead for her long road to recovery. Welcomed by a glorious cliffside sunset and her handsome rancher host, she’s surprised by their instant attraction.

Determined to excel at her work, Melinda does her utmost to display kindness and forges a healthy connection with the horses. And when her dedication warms the heart of the steeds’ drop-dead gorgeous owner, she starts to believe in the possibility of unexpected love and a new future.
Can Melinda truly conquer the demons of her past to find redemption?

Reformed Dreamer is the fourth and final book in the sweet Inspiration in Cologne women’s fiction series. If you like hard-won second chances, surprising romance, and rising above mental health hurdles, then you’ll love Deborah King’s touching story.

This is the fourth and final book in the Inspiration in Cologne series. Reading the other books in the series isn't a necessity to get the gist of the series, however it will help readers to comprehend some of the secondary characters in this series and the overall sense of the stories. They are very much a combination of betrayal, doubt, addiction, love and learning to respect yourself.

I have to say I think Melinda gets a hard sell. Yes, she has proven herself untrustworthy, instable and has plenty of baggage and issues. But she seems to get no respite from all of the aforementioned, and it isn't the main job of her friends to be her therapists, judge and jury over every waking moment. Just saying.

At times it feels as if the pressure put on her to be healthy could be counterproductive at the very least, and there isn't much accountability on her part, especially in the beginning, because she doesn't get the chance to even breathe without someone being right there questioning motives and emotions.

King has created a interesting group of friends and stories which she combines with romance, friendship and also more serious topics. I think the dialogue is too detailed with many superfluous moments and scenes, however King has stepped up her game when it comes to the plot, the characters and the emotional connection between reader and story. Realism meets dream, mental health meets compassion, and love meets understanding.
