Hello Friends!

Today I have some reviews to share. So get ready!

Between You and Me“, written by Carol Mason, is a Women’s fiction novel, published on 22nd June 2021.

I want to thank Rachel, at Rachel’s Random Resources, Carol Mason for the eCopy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.



Is her new husband really who she thinks he is?

When young doctor Lauren Matheson meets Joe, an older divorced businessman, at a glittering poolside in California, it’s a chance encounter that seems life-changing for them both. Back home in London, their feelings only strengthen. But Lauren soon discovers that building a happy future with Joe is going to be an uphill struggle…

She’s determined to be a good stepmother to his children, four-year-old Toby and complicated teen Grace. But under the watchful eye of Meredith, Joe’s intimidating ex-wife, Lauren can’t seem to do a thing right. Why won’t Joe ever take her side against Grace? And what really happened between him and Meredith?

As her husband retreats into a cold, secretive version of the dashing man she met in California, Lauren starts to wonder if she’s made a costly mistake. Was Joe ever the man she thought she married?

My Review

There are times when I don’t read the synopsis and just jump to the story, and there are other times when I’m already curious and want to know what it’s really about before I decide to read a book based on impulse. When I saw the title of this book and the cover, I wondered about what it was. Was it a slow burn romance? Was it a Thriller? Was it a crime/mystery novel? So I jumped to the synopsis and looked up the genre of the book. Did I get answers? No. Did I end up super curious and excited? YES! So here I am.

In this book we follow Lauren in her new journey in life. She’s joins to a ready-made family when she marries Joe, a businessman. With him came his two children, a young kid and a teen, and an ex-wife. I loved seeing the interactions and the family dynamics, it’s not easy and that’s life. When changes happen, we have to adapt, we have to learn how to be and what to do in the new situation. That’s part of what I saw at first. A family dynamic that has changes and there is tension which made it interesting to read and follow.

I found the book very interesting. It had some unexpected moments, and it also reminded me of some family stories that my aunts and cousins have told me about. Plus, the books is about an imperfect life. We all have struggles, we all have ups and downs, and seeing Lauren go through them and trying to figure things out, it was very interesting and I enjoyed it.

Overall, it was more than I expected. It had a good pace, thanks to the drama, the romance, the family dynamic. But I also loved that it focused on many things that sometimes we don’t think about when we are reading and just want to relax: the interactions between a couple, stepparents and stepchildren, and of course the ex-partners when the story talks about divorce. I really like those elements, they made the plot and the characters real. It made me connect with Lauren and her life, which I always appreciate.
