I don't know what it was about this story that grabbed my attention. I haven't read the Salvation series and this author is new to me. And the story isn't something that I would normally gravitate to. But for some reason this one had me wanting to read it.

Dead spouses are one of those hit and miss subjects and I always get nervous reading them, especially when there are children involved. So I am really stunned that I signed up to review this except that the blurb was so well written, I just had to know how it was going to play out.

I had a few moments where I wasn't sure if the time line worked for me between his wife’s death and him moving on. I didn't really have an issue with the fact it was with her estranged sister, just that it all felt like it happened so quickly and honestly I would have had some major trust issues after just finding out my wife of ten years had been having an affair. But this stranger turns up saying things in direct contradiction to everything you have been told about her and you take it on faith, just didn't work for me.

Kate and Shane together worked for me and I liked them together. I felt their connection and I liked that they were sensitive to the kids feelings in their interactions and relationship. And if the timeline had been a little longer I probably would have been happier with everything. Overall this was a good read and I liked the story I just didn't love it but that was probably me and the fact I couldnt take my focus off how I thought he should have been feeling given the short amount of time.
