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?
Between You And Me by Carol Mason is an intriguing and insightful look into being a step parent. It’s a gripping tale that is really well written.
Lauren is a character that is easy to empathize with. She is up against quite a battle attempting to befriend her step daughter, Grace. The tension between her and her family is felt through the page.
Carol Mason has a wonderful writing style. It kept me invested in the story. Overall, I liked this and I recommend checking it out!
