Review for You Were There Too by Colleen Oakley

publication: January 7th 2020 by Berkley

Acclaimed author Colleen Oakley delivers a heart-wrenching and unforgettable love story about a woman who must choose between the man she loves and the man fate has chosen for her in a novel that reminds us that the best life is one led by the heart.

Mia Graydon's life looks picket-fence perfect; she has the house, her loving husband, and dreams of starting a family. But she has other dreams too — unexplained, recurring ones starring the same man. Still, she doesn’t think much of them, until a relocation to small-town Pennsylvania brings her face to face with the stranger she has been dreaming about for years. And this man harbors a jaw-dropping secret of his own—he's been dreaming of her too.

Determined to understand, Mia and this not-so-stranger search for answers. But when diving into their pasts begins to unravel her life in the present, Mia emerges with a single question—what if?

My Thoughts…

I devoured this book.    I picked started reading as soon as I received the book and I couldn’t stop.   I was invested in Mia.    Harrison and Oliver were important to me also, but I focused on Mia and needed to be sure that she would find happiness and love.    I went back and forth on what I wished would happen and I love how it ended.   

Dreams, I never remember mine, but I know that many do and am intrigued by what they could mean.     Mia has been having dreams and then she meets the man from her dreams.    Harrison being a doctor had a little more trouble understanding how important this became to Mia.  I love his reactions and they were all true to life.    While they don’t entirely understand what each other are going through, they never disrespect each other.  There are words said in love, anger, and frustration but that is true to most relationships.      

Colleen Oakley shared a magnificent story that brought characters that were lovable and relatable.   I look forward to more from her and am excited to talk about You Were There Too with other book lovers.
