Between by Cyndi Tefft

Summary Provided by Goodreads:
It just figures that the love of Lindsey Water's life isn't alive at all, but the grim reaper, complete with a dimpled smile and Scottish accent.

After transporting souls to heaven for the last 300 years, Aiden MacRae has all but given up on finding the one whose love will redeem him and allow him entry through the pearly gates.

Torn between her growing attraction to Aiden and heaven's siren song, Lindsey must learn the hard way whether love really can transcend all boundaries.

My Thoughts:
Between begins with Lindsey and her somewhat boyfriend, Ravi getting into a horrible car accident, leaving Lindsey seriously injured. When Aiden MacRae comes to her side, he explains that he there to help Lindsey get to heaven, and the two of them leave the scene of the accident.

Aiden died in the 1700’s and was refused entry into heaven. Instead he was told that he will be stuck between heaven and earth and he will transport souls to heaven until he meets the one that will redeem him and allow him entry into the pearly gates.

Before Lindsey makes the final trip to heaven, she and Aiden spend time together, reliving memories from both of their lives, him at The Palace of Versailles and her in the present day. I really enjoyed the parts where Lindsey was trying to explain to Aiden about technology. Aiden was adorable trying to learn how to use a camera.

One day, Lindsey begins to disappear right in front of Aiden’s eyes. The doctors at the hospital have been working on her, and she finally woke up. Lindsey doesn’t remember at first, but slowly her memories of Aiden come back to her. She loved Aiden, and would do anything to be able to see him again.

I absolutely loved the ending! I definitely was not expecting it and I wonder where Cyndi Teff is going to take this story.

My only issue with Between was I felt the relationship between Aiden and Lindsey was rushed. They just met, and a few days later they claim to be married and madly in love. Don’t get me wrong, I thought the two of them were so cute together, especially with a Scottish man that still speaks in 1700’s twang, but I just didn’t feel it was realistic enough, even for a supernatural kind of story.

Overall, a wonderful and original story and I am glad to be a part of the blog tour! I can’t wait to read the second book, Hell Transporter.
