About the Book:

Heartwarming and Touching New Contemporary Romance from Victoria Bylin
After two broken engagements, nurse practitioner Mia Robinson is done with dating. From now on, she only trusts herself and God, and she's focused on her eighteen-year-old sister, Lucy, and caring for patients. Just as she applies to work for an international aid organization, a phone call from Lucy, who's pregnant and running off to marry her twenty-one-year-old boyfriend, throws a wrench into all of Mia's plans.

Jake Tanner may have recovered from the physical injuries he sustained on the job as a police officer, but his heart has yet to heal from losing his former partner in the tragedy. He's poured himself into starting a camp for the sons of fallen officers and mentoring Sam, the adult son of his deceased partner, who's asked him to be his best man at his wedding. 

Mia is expecting a mess when she arrives to sort out the situation with Lucy, but she wasn't expecting Jake. And Jake, who can't help envying Sam and Lucy, doubts he'll ever experience their happiness for himself. But maybe Jake's courage and Mia's caring spirit are just what they need to bring them a lifetime of healing and a forever kind of love. . . .

My Thoughts:

I absolutely loved this story!  Victoria Bylin has become one of my must read authors, and "The Two of Us" seals her spot forever!  Sam and Lucy are two crazy kids in love, while Mia and Jake are older and cynical about love.

Question is, which couple will exert the most influence?  Readers can probably guess the answer to that question, but the journey toward change is the most fun I've had reading a novel in a long, long time.  All I could ask for is a sequel, with Sam and Lucy as the main characters.  I'd love to see what ends up happening to those two.

Mia and Jake are so real, I found myself praying for them during the sticky parts of their story.  And when I pray for imaginary people, you know that it's a well written pair of characters.  You'll fall for Mia and Jake too, and you'll love "The Two of Us".  I just know it.

Of course, you'll have to wait until August 2017 for your copy.  I received an advance copy from my friends at Bethany House with no services or obligations promised in return.  "The Two of Us" get my "Oh, The Feels!" mark of approval.

Pre-order your copy today, and until next time...
