Marking Time (Treading Water Trilogy #2)
I loved seeing Clare regain her strength and to get a little angry. Her actions seemed a little too good to be true in Treading Water, not that I didn't understand her motive I just doubt I would be that big a person :)
I loved Aidan, so much depth hidden by a sexy, grumpy exterior. I thought he was perfect for Clare, she has been through so much she needed a man who...more
She meets a great Irish man with a wonderful family and he meets Clare's daughters and maybe a new family for himself.
Great family story!
Clare Harrington woke up from a coma to discover her life has changed in more ways than she can count. Two of her daughters have grown into adults while she was in the coma. He husband fell in love with another woman and is getting ready to have babies with her. Not only must Clare face the changes but she must also face the tragedy that landed her in her hospital bed. Clare did the honorable thing and let her husband go so he could marry his new love b...more
Although I kinda felt sorry for Clare in the last book, Treading Water I wasn't convinced that I needed to read about her new romance. But of the two romance storylines that take place in this book, hers felt the realest.
One of the things I notice in Marie Force's books is that a lot of times her characters fall in love really fast. I mean, right away the ILY's are dropping fast and furious. As a reader I am not always convinced that these couples are in love. I didn't feel as if I went...more
Aidan was dreamy.... plain and simple. The o...more
Where do I begin... it was heartbreaking, emotional roller coaster and touching and loving... all wrapped up in one book..
Claire.... sacrificing the one thing she treasured and loved the most she deserved to get away for some "me time". Lets see she was raped, scared for her children's lives, hit by a car, left in a coma for three years and when she woke up life was not as she had left it... her girls were grown and her husband wa...more
I was so looking forward to this book and I was not disappointed. This book takes us on a journey with Clare and her middle daughter Kate.
Clare has been in a coma for the last three years and when she recovered as a miracle she finds life has changed and moved forward without her. Kate has had to grow up fast in the last three years with her mom's accident. The last three has been anything but normal for Kate.
We now find Clare struggling with he...more
Another heartbreaker by Marie Force. This is the 2nd book in the series and you must read the first, Treading Water , which has an incredible, heartwrenching premise (especially since Clare, the h in this story, is made out to be the bad guy in book 1). Marking Time has two love stories and follows the timeline directly after Treading Water. I had so many choke up moments in the first half of the book that...more
Wonderful read. I read this in one day and hated every time life got in the way and I had to put Marking Time down. I loved seeing Clare (Jack's comatose wife in the previous book, Treading Water) get her happy ending- oddly in Treading Water I was mad that Clare woke up from her three year coma and almost ruined Jack's relationship with Andi. In Marking Time I was pissed at Jack and Andi for making Clare's life difficu...more
Loving this series sooo much!
I stayed up til 4am reading this book! Couldn't put it down and kept forcing my eyes to stay open.
She makes the stories so easy to read.
My only complaint with the Treading Water series is that despite the happiness the heart wrenching scenes I think out weigh the good.
Ive never cried so much reading a book as I have with Treading Water and this one.
Well Im off to start the third book which I suspect will be just as heartbreaking.
Fantastic series, would recommend if you like romance and family drama.
So the saving grace for me was Kate and Reid. I super loved him, oops I mean them lol!!! The age thing never bothered me but I can see how it would effect their families. This seco...more
