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.
BETWEEN ended up being a neat, different love story that I wasn't expecting to be so emotional. I think BETWEEN would be perfect for the older YA readers as there are some adult themes involved but there isn't anything to graphic. Lindsey was a likable main character. I had no issues connecting to her and her situation. Aiden was also easy to like and get to know. Its hard to talk about this book without giving away a bit of a spoiler so read ahead at your own risk. Lindsey ends up in an accident and she ends up in an in between place where she meets Aiden and falls in love. An unseen event pulls Lindsey out of the in between place and she has to cope with losing Aiden. The story ends up being pretty emotional and heartfelt. The chapters and situations flow nicely and pull you in throughout the book. Overall I ended up enjoying the story and was really happy with how everything ended.

I gave it 3.5/5 stars
