5 reasons to read A Better Place

  • This is a story all about second chances.
  • I loved both James and & Carly’s devotion to their kids. They go all Papa and Mama bear for them. I can definitely connect to that as a parent.
  • The relationship each of them has with their children is amazing. I love that they are close and can talk to each other about anything.
  • The progression of James and Carly’s friendship is perfect. I loved that they got to know each other before going further.
  • The supporting characters. I loved them as much as the main ones. They are there for these people, and I felt like I was surrounded by a group of friends.

Definitely pick this book up. I loved every second of it, and was sad when I closed the book.
