The Color of Destiny-A Book Review

Overview From Barnes and Noble

From USA Today bestselling author Julianne MacLean comes a suspenseful and emotionally gripping tale about destiny and love...
Eighteen years ago a teenage pregnancy changed Kate Worthington’s life forever.  Faced with many difficult decisions, she chose to follow her heart and embrace an uncertain future with Glenn Ferguson, her devoted first love…and the father of her baby.
At the same time, in another part of the world, sixteen-year-old Ryan Hamilton makes his own share of mistakes, but learns important lessons along the way.
Soon Kate’s and Ryan’s paths cross in a way they never expected, which makes them question the existence of destiny.  Even when all seems hopeless, is it possible that everything happens for a reason, and do we end up exactly where we are meant to be?

This is the second in the series of books by this author known as the Color of Heaven book series. I read and reviewed the first book, The Color of Heaven here. The first book is still FREE at Barnes and Noble and worth every single penny of that amount. This book was only $3.99. And it is a Lend Me Book if you have a Nook and want to friend me and borrow it.

I loved the first book and I liked this one as well. It is good, light reading with well-developed characters. The story is about  16 year old  Kate, who becomes pregnant and has her life forever changed when she goes to live with her aunt in another city. The aunt has a heart attack and is being taken to the hospital in an ambulance, accompanied by Kate and her sister. A bad crash causes the death of Kate's aunt, sister, a paramedic, and Kate's baby. She goes on to marry the baby's father and she becomes a paramedic.

In another part of the country, a 16 year old boy, Ryan, is on a bad path drinking and drugging with his teenage friends. A horrendous car accident, which kills a teenage girl and paralyzes another boy, helps to turn Ryan's life around. He becomes an ER doctor.

Kate and Ryan are brought together in an eerie way of destiny! The ending of this story is fantastic. It leads one to believe that there really is a reason for why things happen the way they happen. 

Good solid *** stars for this book. I liked it.
