Review: Coming Together by Poppy Dunne


Note: This ARC was provided by the author via Candi Kane PR in exchange for an honest review.

Coming Together is a novella about Justin and Charlotte Brightman, the former being the older brother to Emma Drake née Brightman and best friend of Fraser Drake, whose romance unfolded in author Poppy Dunne's earlier release this year, Come Again. Justin and Charlotte have been married for a decade and a half and with three children and a fairly law firm that Justin's trying to get further off the ground, the two barely have time to be a couple. When they end up heading to Hawaii to spend some much needed quality time together, both have high hopes, even though they equally have their share of insecurities when it comes to the current state of their relationship. Will being thousands of miles from home and basking in the sand and surf of Hawaii bring a spark back to their marriage or will misdirected goals for their family lead to further cracks between the two of them?

This was an entertaining look at a couple who had been married for fifteen years and were at a point in their relationship where everything had become more routine than anything else even though the love was still there. It was clear from the get-go that Justin and Charlotte were suffering from a whole lack of communication, and then there were all these insecurities creeping on from both sides. I liked this couple for the most part, although I must admit that I was kind of turned off by Charlotte's attitude towards Justin at one particular point in the story. Other than that one hiccup, I enjoyed reading about these two and their desire to find their footing in their marriage. Fans of Fraser and Emma from Come Again will be happy to note that these two do make cameo appearances her as a check-in to see where their own relationship is at. Four stars for Coming Together. ♥
