Soledad Barnes has her life all planned out. Because, of course, she does. She plans everything. She designs everything. She fixes everything. She’s a domestic goddess who’s never met a party she couldn’t host or a charge she couldn’t lead. The one with all the answers and the perfect vinaigrette for that summer salad. But none of her varied talents can save her when catastrophe strikes, and the life she built with the man who was supposed to be her forever, goes poof in a cloud of betrayal and disillusion.

But there is no time to pout or sulk, or even grieve the life she lost. She’s too busy keeping a roof over her daughters’ heads and food on the table. And in the process of saving them all, Soledad rediscovers herself. From the ashes of a life burned to the ground, something bold and new can rise.

But then an unlikely man enters the picture—the forbidden one, the one she shouldn’t want but can’t seem to resist. She’s lost it all before and refuses to repeat her mistakes. Can she trust him? Can she trust herself?

After all she’s lost . . .and found . . .can she be brave enough to make room for what could be?


Review:

Evocative, affecting, and heartfelt!

This Could Be Us is a heartwarming, touching tale that takes you into the life of Soledad Barnes, a mother of three daughters who must learn how to take risks, be true to herself, follow her heart, and try not to lose sight of her own wants, needs, and dreams after her husband is arrested for a white-collar crime.

The writing is genuine and sincere. The characters are flawed, compassionate, and endearing, And the plot is an absorbing tale about life, loss, heartbreak, forgiveness, family, courage, happiness, self-love, female friendships and new beginnings.

Overall, This Could Be Us is an uplifting, emotive, alluring addition to the Skyland series by Kennedy, and as always, after I finish any of her novels, I’m already looking forward to reading whatever she publishes next.
