The Last Time We Met (by Carol Mason) … heartwarming but not quick read

As a divorced woman, it is always difficult for me to read about marriages ending.  And I wonder if I should have made extra efforts to encourage a relationship with someone who might have been my true love.  I have to admit that I have thought about that individual for years…since our last interaction.  And with the failure of my marriage, should I have made the effort to reach out to the guy for whom I really cared?

So I recognized myself throughout the pages of this book.  However, Celine’s feelings for both men and the decision she had to make were tough.  I think I would have enjoyed learning more about the background of each of her relationships and how the past and present emotions were factors in her life.

This is a somewhat heartwarming but not a quick read.  The writing flowed and the author kept your attention with good character development.  However, I did not connect well with Celine…who was the main character.

Thank you to NetGalley and Lake Union Publishing for my advanced review copy.  All opinions and thoughts are my own.
