The View from Alameda Island – Robyn Carr



I read many books by this author, the Virgin River and Thunder Point series were some of my most favorite by her. This time the author writes about two middle age characters that both want to get out of disastrous marriages – separately from each other, but coincidently at the same time.

I’ve always admired the author for picking topics and themes to write about that have meaning, and are relatable.

Beau and Lauren matched well, no doubt about that, and I’m glad they got their HEA especially after what they all had to go through.

I love that authors like Robyn Carr don’t shy away from taking on issues, and writing books about middle age characters with grown children. The only complaint I have is that both main characters went through a messy divorce, that was too eerily similar, at the same time. It felt a bit like a soap opera at times.

But otherwise it was a solid performance by the author, and a great book for anyone that enjoys romance with a more mature couple.

The View from Alameda Island - Robyn CarrFrom the outside looking in, Lauren Delaney has a life to envy—a successful career, a solid marriage to a prominent surgeon and two beautiful daughters who are off to good colleges. But on her twenty-fourth wedding anniversary Lauren makes a decision that will change everything.

Lauren won’t pretend things are perfect anymore. She defies the controlling husband who has privately mistreated her throughout their marriage and files for divorce. And as she starts her new life, she meets a kindred spirit—a man who is also struggling with the decision to end his unhappy marriage.

But Lauren’s husband wants his “perfect” life back and his actions are shocking. Facing an uncertain future, Lauren discovers an inner strength she didn’t know she had as she fights for the love and happiness she deserves.
