Synopsis

Sometimes there’s a right person for one half of your life, and a right person for the

other…

After twenty years of quiet, contented marriage, Mary Black can’t help but find her eyes drawn to a particularly handsome man at a Christmas party. But her world is suddenly turned upside down when she sees her husband Leo next to him, holding his hand…

For the sake of her children, Mary has no choice but to pick herself back up and start again. She hosts a family Christmas that includes her ex-husband and his new partner. She copes with her children wanting to spend less time with her, and more time with their “fun” dads. And she tries her VERY best to ignore Leo’s hunk of a brother, who has been living in New York for many years, but has just come back to town…

As Mary tries to reshape her future, the past unravels, exposing secrets and lies that rewrite the story of her life and leave her questioning where her loyalties really should lie. After living a life of sliding doors and missed opportunities, can she finally put herself first and take a chance that could change everything? Sometimes life begins at the end of your comfort zone…

Book Review: The Pieces of You and Me by Rachel Burton ...

Thank you to Netgalley and the Author for providing me with a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

This is a story that has the ability to completely suck you in and take you on a bit of an emotional roller coaster. I really began to feel for Mary and how she was trying to deal with the new reality that she found herself in and really felt like I was with her as she tried to figure out the best way to handle it. It was a book that can easily be read within an afternoon and one that is great to take your mind of the real world for a little while.

It was however fairly predictable but after awhile I did find myself getting just a little bit, I’m going to go with frustrated with Mary who in the nicest possible way is a bit of a doormat. While I could emphasis and understand why she was doing what she was doing, she really needed to stand up and advocate for herself once in awhile. I also wish that there had been more of a resolution and not one that was just suddenly done and dusted right at the end. It is a book I would still recommend with four out of five stars.
