Book Review: The Time in Between (Magdalene #3) by Kristen Ashley

The Magdalene series has been amazing and I'm sorry to see it come to an end. It went out in a spectacular way with The Time in Between. Cady and Coert were exceptional characters. Be sure to check it out!

The Time in Between (Magdalene #3) by Kristen Ashley

After a painful loss, Cady Moreland is coming to Magdalene to start the next chapter of her life. A chapter that began eighteen years ago but had a heartbreaking ending. The time in between was full of family and friendship, but Cady could never get the man she fell in love with all those years ago out of her heart.

Coert Yeager has learned to live without the girl who entered his life right when she shouldn’t and exited delivering a crippling blow he never would have suspected. The time in between was full of failing to find what he was missing…and life-altering betrayal.

But when that girl shows up in Magdalene and buys the town’s beloved lighthouse, even if Coert wants to avoid her, he can’t. A fire in town sparks a different kind of flame that won’t be ignored.

As Cady and Coert question the actions of the two young adults they once were thrown into earth-shattering circumstances, can they learn from what came in between and find each other again?

5 out of 5 stars

The Time in Between was exceptional! It was filled with so much emotion, healing, and love. Page after page I felt like my heart was going to explode. I loved Coert and Cady and the amazing journey they were. I was hooked from beginning to end.

I loved the emotional roller coaster ride this story took me on. I loved learning about Coert and Cady and loved the flashbacks to their past. I loved the tension and conflict from their younger days, they were in an intense and complicated situation. I loved the development of them reconnecting in the present day. There was just so much history between these two and I hung on every word as they made their way back to each other. It’s filled with heartbreak and pain and I loved the crazy push and pull Coert and Cady had in the beginning. There were so many great moments of them opening up and sharing, working through their past to move on in the present. I enjoyed their personal struggles and the realizations they came to as well. There was a lot of growth for both of them. Mixed in with the drama and feelings were super fun moments and hot ones too. I loved it all.

There was an excellent cast of secondary characters. I absolutely adored the different bonds that were formed and how families and friends connected and grew. I also loved seeing the couples from past books in the series and character connections to other series as well. I liked the drama and the bits of suspense, and how everything played out with the would-be villain Boston Stone. The details were great, I loved the build, the different POVs, and character development. There were a lot of smaller stories woven in as well that added to the layers and depth. I love how it all intertwined. I loved how the loose ends were tied up in the epilogue, finding out where everyone was at in their lives, and how it created so many special, poignant moments.

The third and final book in the Magdalene series was a truly amazing second chance romance. Absolutely stunning story!
