Meant To Be by Jennifer Labelle
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
MEANT TO BE is an emotional roller coaster with a fantastic combination of love, lies and loss. The story got off to a slow start and I was a bit confused at what was reality and what wasn't. After laying a solid foundation of the heroine, Jenna's history, the story really began to amp up about 2/3 of the way through and ended with a satisfying conclusion.
Young mother and wife, Jenna Baker wakes up in the hospital from the drug induced coma she had been forced into after a terrible car-accident nearly took her life only to find she is having difficulty distinguishing the difference between the visions that are plaguing her mind and reality. After some of her visions become reality, she finally understands that they are actually premonitions of events in the future. I found myself experiencing the confusion that Jenna must have felt. I couldn't tell if her cheating husband, Tyler, deserved a medal or a swift kick in the butt.
After a series of events unfolds and her visions of the future continue with alarming regularity, it is clear that Jenna must find peace in her life. When Jenna dreams of a handsome and charming Irishman, she knows she must uncover if this man is her destiny. She must decide to continue on in her life with her current husband or to literally find the man of her dreams in hopes of making the "happily ever after" her reality.
The mystery that was laced in with the romance kept me guessing until the very end. All along, I was rooting for Jenna to get her happily ever after in whatever form that came. MEANT TO BE is definitely a tearjerker, so be sure to have a tissue handy while you are reading! So, if you are looking for a sweet romance with a lot of twists and turns, then grab this story for an evening read and you'll get just that and more!
