As part of the Harlequin Ambassador Program I receive some books in the mail that they ask me to read and give them my opinion on. Sometimes they are books that aren't published yet and sometimes they are books like This Time For Keeps that were just recently released.
After reading This Time For Keeps I decided to recommend the book to others and write up a review, which I don't normally do. This is one of those tough story lines. This isn't a book you read to make yourself laugh, but one that might just bring tears to your eyes.
Meg and her husband Russell are happily married until the day they lose their unborn child and Meg happy life is shattered. She doesn't know what to do with herself, she becomes distant and Russell doesn't know how to reach her.
Then Russell leaves on a business trip that is only suppose to take a few weeks and doesn't return for two years and then only to clear up his sister's estate.
When Russell's sister dies in a car accident she leaves her baby with Meg to take care of. Meg loves the baby. This is her chance to have the baby she has always wanted and she's doing a good job of taking care of her. Suddenly Russell's back as well as the baby's father and she might have to give another child up.
Can Meg and Russell come to terms with the past and move forward is the underlying question?
Well written, but sad and uneasy book.
When Russell and Megan Montgomery said I do, they never imagined a few short years later their marriage would be torn apart by personal tragedy. Now, with divorce papers ready to be signed, a new tragedy brings Russell back into Meg’s life. With the future of a young child hanging in the balance, they must discover if life they once dreamed of is still within their reach…this time for keeps.
