Publisher's Summary

They chose their own roads, but they couldn't change their destination....
Twenty years ago, Vanessa Massey couldn't wait to graduate from high school and make her small hometown of Danton Hill a distant memory - despite an indelible friendship she'd recently forged. But life has largely ignored her plans, and time has summoned her back to the shores of Lake Ontario for a school reunion that could change everything.
After four years as Danton Hill High's resident outcast, Adam Blackburn went on to a successful career in New York City. Yet now he's drawn homeward for a reunion he's surprisingly curious to attend - if he and his car survive the fierce summer storm that's hit. Adam always hated storms and their destruction. And sure enough, he soon collides with another vehicle in the blinding rain. But it turns out the driver is the one person he'd hoped to see: Vanessa.
Reunited by Mother Nature, the two take shelter in an abandoned farmhouse where they are forced to decipher their unresolved history. Together, they'll unravel the twists of fate that have brought them to the present - and discover the remarkable truth that may carry them through the future....

Contemporary romance with a paranormal twist

This book has a lot of descriptions and lots of details throughout. I found the story slow paced and it was hard to keep focused. The story went back and forth between past and present. There were more secrets than I expected it and the paranormal twist caught me by surprise, not my favorite conclusion...

The narration was ok but there was not much difference between characters.

It was a unique love story with some mystery woven in. I felt like the story dragged on and on. The tale of previous lovers separated by death and expecting to meet again in another lifetime was different than what I'm used to.

The book was well written but perhaps just not for me. I prefer a much faster paced book.

This was completely different from what I was expecting. How to describe this story without giving too much away. A well written, engaging and entertaining story. A love story with a paranormal twist.

If you want a story that is fast paced and full of action this is not it. The story unfolds slowly, giving you little clues here and there to what is really going on. The story is told between the past and present. While the story has enough little twists to keep your attention it is told slowly developing the current relationship as well as the backstory between the characters.

A reunion like no other. Vanessa Massey and Adam Blackburn are two souls that are intertwined in an inescapable way. Have you ever had Deja' Vu, or just felt like you needed to be somewhere or see someone. Vanessa and Adam have that pull for reasons they can't explain. They have a destiny waiting for them. Vanessa and Adam have loved before. There is a HEA, but not in a traditional sense.

I was able to figure out what was going on pretty early on in the story. I was really hoping it wasn't going to turn out the way that it did.

Mindy Grall did a good job with the narration overall. Pleasant voice. Easy to listen to for long periods of time. Clearly spoken with a smooth even pace. Some really good character voices. Her male character voices need more distinction from the female voices. Vanessa and Adam sounded the same which takes away from the overall experience of the story. She was able to make you feel all the emotions of the characters and bring the story to life.

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator or publisher
