Description

Despite the better option right in front of her, an unexpected complication forces Lily to cut ties with Atlas, confront Ryle, and try to end the cycle of abuse before it’s too late. She had a very unusual manner to go with the uncommon accent: sort of Head Girl in a boarding school, combined with the rigidly poised, religiose self-certainty of a West Coast wellness guru. While I didn’t get what I wanted from Between Us, McFarlane’s writing is strong enough it didn’t ever occur to me to put the book down. McFarlane often de-centers the romance in favor of a heroine's development, but here, more than most of her books, the romance is slight.

I saw the romance coming from way earlier than is natural, but only because I know the author's work fairly well by this point. This book tackles a number of difficult issues in relationships ~sometimes almost too many to cope with! In this book, you have to be patient for Roisin to get an idea of the kind of partner she deserves, after Joe uses her and her quiet investigations uncover his betrayal in so many more ways. I was invested in Roisin being able to move on, but I missed the connection to the romance that I’ve usually found in McFarlane’s books.While I sign up for her stuff because I love the friend groups and actual plot with a side of romance thrown in, maybe I read this too soon after Mad About You as there were several similarities in the goings on with those two releases. Is her bf who she thought he was, and if he isn’t who exactly is he and who is she that she didn’t see it?

The sequel to It Ends With Us (2016) shows the aftermath of domestic violence through the eyes of a single mother. I am a HUGE Mhairi McFarlane fan and so I am a bit gutted that this one didn't live up to my expectations.

I thought McFarlane did a good job of portraying a group that have been friends for a long time, but are at that point in their lives when things are changing and some of them are drifting apart, such that the future of the friendships seem to hang in the balance, and there is this feeling of nostalgia for what once was.
