The Words Between Us by Erin Bartels

Books, books, books, and one bookworm. Well, quite a few bookworms and one from Robin's past.

since she was fourteen from a scandal that her jailed parents were involved in caused Robin to have no confidence and become a recluse.

We get a glimpse into Robin‘s life as a child before the scandal as well as present day. Because of this scandal Robin had to live with her grandmother in another state where she met Peter who loved books too and shared books with her.  They became good friends until an incident that caused them to never see each again.

Peter had been out of touch for years, but all of a sudden the books they shared as children started showing up in her mailbox
at her book store from different states.

Meanwhile Robin’s book store was in jeopardy because she didn't have any customers.

Robin was sweet and will pull you into her life, her situation, and her love of books.

If you also enjoy mysteries, THE WORDS BETWEEN US will appeal to you because added to Robin’s dilemmas in her life was a secret her grandmother supposedly had and that Robin never knew about.

THE WORDS BETWEEN US will resound with book lovers simply because of that gorgeous cover,  the title, and of course the story line.

The reader will again be treated to Ms. Bartel’s wonderful storytelling skills.  4/5

This book was given to me by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

  3. I just read this, too. I used the word "sweet" to describe it, too. I said, "It’s a YA love story, the kind I used to read, with no teenaged sex, just sweetness."

    1. It was a very sweet read.

      If you haven't read her first book, give that a try too.

      That book was excellent....historical fiction.
