Review - Between the Pages by Amanda Richardson

Title: Between the Pages
Author: Amanda Richardson
Release Date: April 11, 2016

At twenty-six years old, Finley Matthews is done writing for other people as a ghostwriter. She's tired of seeing her work with someone else's name slapped on the cover. She wants to make a name for herself, even if it means starting from scratch. 

But when she runs into the mysterious novelist Emerson Whittaker twice in twelve hours, and he convinces her to take on one final ghostwriting project in return for good money and a promising meeting with his literary agency upon completion of the project, she accepts whole-heartedly. This could be her way into the daunting literary world. Besides, what could possibly go wrong? 

Soon, Finley finds herself captivated by the enigmatic and attractive Emerson. And there's something about Finley that Emerson can't ignore, either. They soon find themselves helping and needing each other in more ways than one, and eventually, they fall in love between the pages of Emerson's book. 

As the months continue, Finley works with Emerson to get his story on paper. She begins to uncover things about him she wishes she never knew; piecing together Emerson’s past, one chapter at a time—a past with a secret even she can't ignore. 

A passionate tale of friendship, romance, and betrayal, Between the Pages will immerse readers in the provocative world of Finley and Emerson from the very first page. 

Between the Pages is a unique story of a writer who can’t write without love. 

Emerson Whitaker had immense success with his first book, but after a tragic event in his life, he couldn't write anymore. He has the ideas but the words won’t flow. So, he hires ghostwriters to help him complete what filled the pages between the covers. 

Finley Matthews is the most recent writer he hired to assist in the process. Young and beautiful, she has the power to change the course of his life... 

I loved this book from the start. Finely is creative and fun, but takes no prisoners. She's a bit sassy and inquisitive. I often wondered if she could be a journalist hunting down a story. Writing is her life. She dreams of publishing her own story but staying afloat in New York City isn't so easy. So, she takes one last job working for Emerson. 

It was interesting to see the paradox of how our lives are a journey. Wheels are put in motion in times and places we are never part of. They have the potential to change the course of our lives forever. As with both Emerson and Finley's, a tragedy set each of them on a different path. Her, on a path of living her life honestly and for herself. She's real and genuine, and I love it! Him—on a path of hiding in plain sight. 

This is a complex story of life and love. How our past affects our future. How living an honest life for ourselves, and for love, is what life is really about!

Amanda Richardson is an award-winning travel writer turned indie author living in Los Angeles with her husband and two cats. When she's not writing or reading (which, let's be honest, accounts for 95% of her free time), she can be found Googling cheap flights to places she's never been, talking to her cats, or obsessing over the British Royal Family. Fun fact: her first novel is about the Tudors. One day maybe, after a lot of wine, she might find the courage within her to publish it! Find out more here:
