The Two of Us: A Book Review

About The Book:

After two broken engagements, Mia Robinson is done with dating. From now on, she's focusing on God and her goal to join an international aid organization as a nurse practitioner. But when her 18-year-old sister, Lucy, calls with an invitation to her Vegas wedding, it throws a wrench into Mia's plans.

Jake Tanner has recovered from the injuries he sustained as a police officer--on the outside. Inside, he's yet to heal from losing his partner in the tragedy, but finds some solace in keeping an eye on her young adult son, Sam, who's asked him to be best man at his wedding.

Mia expects a mess when she arrives to sort out the situation with Lucy, but she wasn't expecting Jake, who views the marriage a little differently. As Jake's and Mia's lives slowly become more intertwined, could his courage and her caring heart be enough to bring them a lifetime of healing?

My Review:

Another wonderful read from contemporary romance author, Victoria Bylin. This book had adorable characters, with whom anyone who is reading the book will relate to. The topic of Alzheimer's Disease and it's impact on family dynamics. It was a little difficult for me to read, as my late grandfather journeyed through this disease and it was devestating. However the book was wonderful to read as we saw a journey of a family through both good and bad times and it was a great reminder that it is God who walks with us, and even carries us at time, through these times. I felt at times the story line was rushed but overall it was a very good read. The book was full of emotion and I felt as though I was right in the room for most of the book, experiencing these emotions along side the characters themselves. 

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up.
