The Good in Goodbye - Lasairiona McMaster

4.5 STARS!

Relationships are complicated. Long distance ones, even more so.

When Lisa Millar met AJ Williams online through mutual friends, she wasn’t prepared to fall in love with the man of her dreams. She was even less prepared to discover that he already had a wife. In a heart-wrenching story of love attempting to transcend miles, Lisa finds herself pregnant and on the wrong side of the Atlantic from the man she loves.

Will their love conquer all? Or will the intricacies of a relationship woven across the Atlantic be too much to take and tear them apart once and for all?

Lasairiona McMaster grew up dreaming of an exciting life abroad, and, after graduating from Queens University, Belfast, that is exactly what she did -with her then-boyfriend, now husband of almost ten years. Having recently repatriated to Northern Ireland after a decade abroad spanned over two countries (seven and a half years in America and eighteen months in India), she now finds herself 'home', with itchy feet and dreams of her next expatriation. With a penchant for both travelling, and writing, she started a blog during her first relocation to Houston, Texas and, since repatriating to Northern Ireland, has decided to do as everyone has been telling her to do for years, and finally pen a book (or two) and get published while she tries to adjust to the people and place she left ten years ago, where nothing looks the same as it did when she left.

To say this is a "heart-wrenching story" would be a gross understatement!

To be honest I wasn't sure I was going to like this book at first. There was a LOT of swearing (which I don't really care for) and I really didn't like Lisa. She definitely was not a person I would like in real life. Then... half way through the book it changed, Lisa changed. She had a traumatic experience and it changed her for life. The whole last half of the book I read through the tears streaming down my face. Wow, some very powerful emotion here!

This is the second book in the series (which I didn't know - oops! LOL) but it didn't matter. It really didn't. I felt the author did a great job of catching me up and I really didn't feel like I was missing out on anything.
So if you want to read this as a stand alone - go ahead. Of course it was good enough that I am sure you will want to go back and also read the first one.

I would love to recommend this to my daughter but she is pregnant right now and I don't think she could handle it, so I think I will wait till the new baby is about 6 mo old... or ten years LOL.

Bottom line - if you don't mind lots of swearing and talk of sex (not graphic though) and can have a full box of tissues handy - I do highly recommend this book!  ;-)

I voluntarily posted this review after receiving a copy of this book from Rachel's Random Resources Thank You!!
