The Lives Between Us is about family and love. It’s about desperate people doing what they need to, to save the ones they love.

Grief-stricken reporter, Skylar Kendall, plots revenge on Michigan Sen. Hastings who opposed life-saving stem cell research and therapy. She gains access to Hastings, learning secrets that would launch her career and satisfy her need for retribution… Only, she hadn’t counted on falling in love.

Can she avenge the lives lost to politics at the expense of her new love and friends?

 How far would you go to save the one you love?

Reporter Skylar Kendall has run from commitment all her life, pushing people away before they leave her, until her niece worms her way into Skye’s heart and settles in tight. Skye relaxes into a career she enjoys and relishes being a doting aunt.

Then her niece becomes gravely ill. Unable to bear yet another loss, Skye is determined to find a cure, but the girl’s only hope lies in the embryonic stem cell therapy Michigan Senator Edward Hastings repeatedly opposes. When Skye fails to find alternative treatment in time, she vows to end the senator’s political career.

Curious about the woman behind the scathing articles on his best friend, Mark Dutton pursues Skye. Dating Mark gives her access to Hastings’s life and secrets that would launch Skye’s career and satisfy her need for retribution… Only she hadn’t counted on falling in love.

Can she avenge the lives lost to politics at the expense of her new love and friends?

“It is an interesting, intriguing and thought provoking book – one that certainly gave me food for thought.” —Elaine

“From the very first chapter I was intrigued and invested in this book. It is a compelling read with well developed characters that I found was hard to put the book down until the end.” –Kathy

“In summary, much to my surprise, this book turned out to be a thinker, and I like when I am made to ponder. I see a couple of reviewers are calling this a beach read. I respectfully disagree. It is more than that. I recommend The Lives Between Us to all readers of women’s fiction who like substance to their stories.” –Christine

“It grabbed me from the very beginning, and I simply could not put it down. It is so much more than just a romance. It is heartbreaking, clever, and beautiful.” –Give Me Books
