After trusting in her beloved friend Dan’s guidance from the beyond, Olivia is finally on the path to realizing her destiny.

Arriving back in Chicago, she receives more frightening news further delaying her future journey with Finn. Unable to control the outcome, she begins questioning her trust and faith in Dan once again. She distracts herself the only way she knows how, by diving head first into a new project. What seemed like a time-killer may actually be the thing that saves her and catapults her into a world she never dreamed of.

When Olivia and Finn finally reunite, a looming secret is uncovered threatening to ruin the relationship she has waited for her entire life. Olivia is forced to decide whether to tell Finn or let it live in the past forever. Is their relationship strong enough to weather the storm or will it cause them to part ways for good?

My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased. I read Beyond Believing a couple of years ago and enjoyed it so I was looking forward to seeing what happens in the next stage of Olivia and Finn’s journey.

Olivia and Finn have decided that she’s going to sell her condo in Chicago and move to California to live with him. They’re deeply in love with each other and are sure that his deceased wife and her dead best friend have had a hand in bringing them together. They do have challenges along the way but surely their love can keep them together…

Olivia does not do well when she is faced with a crisis. If someone she loves may be in danger, she falls apart so it’s a good thing she has a strong support system. Being able to call upon Dan also helps her. She seems so mature in some ways but her reaction to crises is rather immature, especially since she’s been through so much.

Olivia is keeping a secret that seems so trivial to me that I can’t believe she’s kept it for so long and has blown it so out of proportion. Finn’s reaction is not what I expected at all.

Beyond Love is full of interesting characters, close friendships, and love of all kinds. I look forward to reading the next book in the series to see what happens with Olivia and Finn.
