You Were There Too Review

“Maybe all that matters is that love is a circle. Infinite. External. Present, even when the person you want to be there most is absent.”

– Colleen Oakley


Mia Graydon’s life looks picket-fence perfect; she has the house, her loving husband, and dreams of starting a family. But she has other dreams too—unexplained, recurring ones starring the same man. Still, she doesn’t think much of it, until a relocation to small-town Pennsylvania brings her face to face with the stranger she has been dreaming about for years. And this man harbors a jaw-dropping secret of his own—he’s been dreaming of her too.  

Determined to understand, Mia and this not-so-stranger search for answers. But when diving into their pasts begins to unravel her life in the present, Mia emerges with a single question—what if?

My Review


Wow. This book sure kept me guessing. As soon as I thought I had things figured out. PLOT TWIST! It’s not even a thriller!

I loved the character development that happens as well as the epiphanies that occur as well. Mia goes from sad, lonely, confused, and wondering who she is- to being confident and assured in her choices. Mia’s husband Harrison also starts the book off depressed and beating himself up over something that happened on the operating room. Toward the end of the book he learns to live and accept that as well as become himself again.

Not only does the plot keep you guessing, but it also keeps you entranced and pulled in. The story has you trying to predict and figure out why Mia and Oliver are dreaming of each other and what exactly is happening in these dreams and what it means.

The only complaint I have is that it was a bit of a slow build and then BAM something happens and then a slow ending.

Speaking of the ending- not what I was expecting or hoping for. But it was perfect.
