REVIEW**~**Crossing Paths by Melanie Stinnett


The crossing paths of friendship, family, love, and loss are often complicated.

June Deckert and Caroline Smith sparked a friendship in college that carried them through graduation. Although they are complete opposites in every way, they have spent the last four years inseparable.

That is, until now.

June finds herself falling for a man who seems unattainable. As she works side by side with him on a new media campaign, their feelings for each other come alive. But when his actions start to speak louder than words, she wonders if she’s missing something.

Meanwhile, Caroline is fighting against her feelings for a recent acquaintance, and she decides to keep her new love interest a secret from June. Overwhelmed by these new emotions, her moods change swiftly, swinging up and down like a yo-yo.

While June and Caroline try to maneuver their way through new relationships, Caroline starts lying to June to protect her from a truth that threatens to break her heart and tear them apart.

In the end, Caroline’s deceit will test their friendship, and June will have to decide if her chance at love is worth putting her heart on the line.

4 stars

“I know now, in this moment, that my path has led me here for a reason- to fond a place of healing where a second chance at love is possible.”

Crossing Paths is a beautiful story about how people that cross our paths in our lives can change them forever.  I was intrigued with this story right from the beginning. As the story progressed the idea of how people come into our lives had me wondering about my own path. That’s when I knew I would enjoy this story.

This story is about four people, June, Caroline, Cohen and Liam.  June and Caroline are best friends and we get to see their points of view as well as Cohen and Liam’s.  Their lives cross paths and that is where the sorry takes off. It’s amazing how people come into our lives when we need them most and change them for the better.

I don’t want to spoil the story, but this is a love story and its written in a unique way. We get to see glimpse of how the men feel and it adds more substance to the story.

This book does not have sex in it but some loving moments. I didn’t really miss it because it is so tender and sweet.

Ms. Stinnet does a excellent job describing the character feelings and emotions. I could’t picture everything clearly in my head and the writing flowed nicely.

Some quotes I loved include –

“I knew I couldn’t let you walk away again. You might not believe it, but I know you crossed my path that day for a reason.”

“I know that when I looked into your eyes, I saw something that made me believe in taking a chance.”

Crossing Paths is about taking a chance with the people that enter our lives at random times and following the path wherever it may lead.

This bitch loved this sweet and touching story.
