When I read other reviews of The Heart Between Us, they are very positive, so I just have to assume that something in me wasn't in the right place when reading this. It just didn't work for me. I finished it, and I semi-enjoyed it, but I found myself skimming to get to the height of the action.
The story centers around Megan Jacobs who had a heart transplant in her early adulthood. Her twin sister, Crystal, on the other hand, was able to live her life while Megan had to watch from the side. Intertwined in that is a plot of Crystal being a workaholic and almost losing her marriage, and Megan's relationship with a fellow heart recipient, Caleb.
The sisters take a trip to fulfill a bucket list for the girl who gave Megan her heart, and their damaged relationship takes on a whole new direction.
I actually wonder if the reason I didn't enjoy it very much is because I've done a lot of traveling, and I found a lot of the traveling adventures to be a little overboard and not very reasonable. They faced so many hiccups on their trip that just didn't seem believable. I never did find myself attached to any of the characters.
I do think that Lindsay Harrel is a good writer, and I would give another of her books a chance. As someone who wants to be a writer, I can't imagine receiving a less-than-stellar review, but I felt I really needed to be honest.
