Between - Review

Between by Clarissa Johal
How far would you go to redeem yourself?

As a young girl, Lucinda was able to see spirits, a gift that didn’t come without its problems. Now, a dedicated young veterinarian, she is committed to the idea that every life can be saved.

After a devastating accident, Lucinda tries to escape her past by moving to a small town. There, she meets a newcomer and feels an immediate connection with him. But there is another mysterious stranger to the small town, one that stirs within her a mixture of unease and desire.

As Lucinda is drawn into a bitter tug-a-war from the forces around her, she is likewise pulled into a dangerous twist of past and present events. Forced to make difficult choices, she finds that the two men are locked in not only a battle for her life…but a battle for their salvation.

My Review
Lucinda is starting over in a new town. She has left everything behind after a tragedy happens. She is a vet and very passionate about her work. She also has a secret. She can see spirits and always has been able to. She has friends she has made in her new life and soon meets a guy. He seems different from other men and she is drawn to him. A passing stranger also seems to have a hold on her as well. Lucinda sees things and knows something is strange about the two. men. She does meet a normal man and soon begins to fall for him. Will these strangers leave her in piece and let her live her life or do they hold the secret to her past.

At the beginning I was a little confused when reading this book and couldn't get into it. Then about halfway thru it I got hooked. Lucinda has so much going on. She has left her home to start over and wants nothing to do with her past. That past seems to be coming back to hunt her and she has to end up facing what she has left behind. She sees these spirits and the strange men seem to be a part of that. They know so much about her that they shouldn't. I really enjoyed getting to read about them because one I thought was going to be the good guy wasn't really that way. The guy she ends up dating has my heart. He tries so hard to be with Lucinda even when she acts strange. You end up getting a battle of good versus evil and what made them that way. I loved getting to see why they turned out the way they did. This book ended up being a great read and I love how it ended. It wasn't the ending I was expecting and I love that.
