The Life She Wants

We rated this book:


The Life She Wants by Robyn Carr is another amazing read by this talented writer. A novel that shows how one’s easy life can easily be taken from them. One can work hard and be decent and still have trouble…like Emma Shay Compton. Marriage and her lifestyle were taken away in one great swoop. Fate lands her back home – a place with bad memories. But after looking at her options, she has nowhere else to go. Maybe she can start new and gain her life back, but that is easier said than done. Robyn Carr brilliantly creates novels that hook and captivate readers from the beginning to end. Her words are inspiring and heartwarming. Friendship, as well as new relationships, are great themes within this riveting new title. Back home Emma will have to be patient in getting the life she wants.

The Life She Wants is packed with emotions and a raw intensity that pulls me in deeply. I love Robyn Carr’s writing. She never disappoints. The rollercoaster ride that readers will be going on within this new tale is one that shows us no matter what life brings, we can overcome anything. Friends with a falling out so long ago are now brought back into each other’s lives. Only time will tell if they can repair their friendship and make it solid once again. The drama of Emma’s husband’s investigation still comes chasing after her – making her life miserable. She can’t wait until it’s over…if it ever ends. The police have been tapping her phone and still bother her with endless questions. Her frustration and despair felt so real. I felt like I was inside Emma’s shoes rather than sitting in a chair reading about what she felt. Not only does Emma have nothing while battling an ongoing investigation due to her dead husband, but she also has feelings for a man that she tries not to get too attached to. The Life She Wants has everything and more than what every reader wants or expected to find. I loved following the characters, especially Riley and Emma. Their friendship tugged at my heart. Overall, I highly recommend this story to readers everywhere.
