Book Review

The Two of Us by Victoria Bylin


I have been admiring her books for a while and have never had the opportunity to read her books….. until now. The Two of Us was an enjoyable read.

Author, Victoria deals with some difficult issues, one of them being Alzheimer’s, an issue which she says hit her close to home.

Although it was a tough issue to face, by her including Claire’s condition in the book I was able to learn a little bit more about the challenges both patients and family members face.

Mia and Jake are thrown together through circumstances and Mia must make some tough de idioms. Her scarred heart and Jake’s own issues make the road to happiness rocky and almost impossible.

I fell in love with sweet Lucy, you can’t help but love her. Young and impulsive, she deals with her own hurts and insecurities and finds her own way

What came through the most for me was that as important as family is, it’s important to rely on God for everything, knowing that although others may fail you, make mistakes, hurt you, He never ever will.

Lucy, Mia and Jake’s struggles with their purpose in life, each in their own way, bring them to a place where they have to let go and let God.

I read this book in less than a day.

Loved it.

Heartwarming and Touching New Contemporary Romance from Victoria Bylin

After two broken engagements, nurse practitioner Mia Robinson is done with dating. From now on, she only trusts herself and God, and she’s focused on her eighteen-year-old sister, Lucy, and caring for patients. Just as she applies to work for an international aid organization, a phone call from Lucy, who’s pregnant and running off to marry her twenty-one-year-old boyfriend, throws a wrench into all of Mia’s plans.

Jake Tanner may have recovered from the physical injuries he sustained on the job as a police officer, but his heart has yet to heal from losing his former partner in the tragedy. He’s poured himself into starting a camp for the sons of fallen officers and mentoring Sam, the adult son of his deceased partner, who’s asked him to be his best man at his wedding.

Mia is expecting a mess when she arrives to sort out the situation with Lucy, but she wasn’t expecting Jake. And Jake, who can’t help envying Sam and Lucy, doubts he’ll ever experience their happiness for himself. But maybe Jake’s courage and Mia’s caring spirit are just what they need to bring them a lifetime of healing and a forever kind of love. . . .

    My copy just came in the mail! I can’t wait to read it, but, alas, I think I’ll have to wait until after CFRR. I have so much to do before I leave! It sounds like an awesome book.
