Book Review: The Lives Between Us by Theresa Rizzo

This is how describes the book:

The Lives Between Us is about family and love. It's about desperate people doing what they need to, to save the ones they love. This book, Jodi Picoult style, is part love story and part social commentary. In the vein of JoJo Moyes, Me Before You.

How far would you go to save the one you love?

Grief-stricken reporter, Skylar Kendall, plots revenge on Michigan Sen. Hastings who opposed life-saving stem cell research and therapy. She gains access to Hastings, learning secrets that would launch her career and satisfy her need for retribution... 

Only, she hadn't counted on falling in love.

Winner of the 2016 National Indie Excellence Award for Women's Fiction, and finalist for the 2016 Next Generation Indie Book Awards for Chick Lit and the 2015 USA Best Book Awards for Chick Lit/ Women's Fiction.

My review:
This would make a great Book Club book it is loaded with a controversial  subject that will have everyone adding to the conversation. The author Theresa Rizzo sheds light on the need for stem cell research and therapy but also shows the other side of  the debate.  It will opens your eyes to a subject that is not put in the news enough.

Thank you to Netgalley and Theresa Rizzo for the opportunity to read and review this book.  Definitely a 5 out of 5 stars!!!
