    1. 2 Preachy Stars*Spoilers*The Lives Between Us was an alright read. I didn't really like it, and I didn't really hate it. It really came off as kinda boring and preachy. Over 50% of this book is about embryonic stem cell (ESC) treatment in great detail. Skye one of the main characters in the book is for ESC and feels it would save her niece's life. The niece dies. Skye blames her death on another main character, Senator Hastings, because he is pro-life and blocked the use of ESC. Now I don't real [...]

    2. When reporter Skye’s nine year old niece Niki dies she is convinced that her life could have been saved by embryonic stem cell treatment. She blames Senator Edward Hastings for her death – he has consistently campaigned and voted against the treatment and now she is determined to get revenge by finding some way to end his career. When Skye meets and falls for Mark Dutton however, things are going to get a little muddied in this human interest read that is very romantic at times with characte [...]

    3. WHAT an emotional charged readI have been glued to this book all afternoon since last night when I started it, but had to eventually go to sleep.I couldn't wait to get my nose back into it today.Skylar is a reporter. She comes across as someone who doesn't want to get involved with anyone, she is someone that I would call, a good person, a solid person but keeps one step removed others.Skylar has a niece. Skylar would do anything for her niece, she loves the bones of her. But her niece becomes [...]

    4. The Lives Between Us is the 3rd novel written by Theresa Rizzo and the first one that I have read. I wish to thank Ms. Rizzo for asking me to read and review it honestly. I also thank Net Galley and Rizzo Publishing for the ARC.This was a thought-provoking read for me. At first, I did not think I was going to enjoy it at all, primarily because I found the protagonist, Skylar (Skye) Kendall, difficult to invest in. Early on she is selfish and immature. I just wanted to shake her and tell her to g [...]

    5. Nearly five stars!! I was lucky enough to be contacted by Theresa Rizzo asking if I would like to do an honest review of her new novel, The Lives Between Us. Having never read any of Theresa's books before, I can say I will now be on the hunt for her other books as I really enjoyed this book. From the very first chapter I was intrigued and invested in this book. It is a compelling read with well developed characters that I found was hard to put the book down until the end. Skylar's niece dies an [...]

    7. I started this book completely unsure of where it was going to take me. I honestly went into it not knowing if I was going to like it or not. I was so, so, wrong to judge it up front. It grabbed me from the very beginning, and I simply could not put it down. It is so much more than just a romance. It is heartbreaking, clever, and beautiful. The Lives Between Us follows Skye as she navigates through the heartbreak of watching her very much adored niece suffer with health problems that she feels c [...]

    8. I did not finish this book. It made me crazy angry. The author has a pro-embryonic stem cell research agenda and she's made her champion, Skylar Kendall, the least sympathetic character possible. Skylar has had many deep losses, but rather than creating empathy, they have made her selfish and vindictive. She is passionate so we are supposed to overlook her flaws on her journey to healing. Instead we are forced to put up with her vitriol toward a state senator on whom she's placed all the blame f [...]

    9. The author got in touch with me and asked whether I would like to read a copy of her book. I had it downloaded on Net Galley and put it to the top of my tbr pile.I was quickly drawn into the book. I loved the scenes between Sky and her niece Nicky who had a heart problem. She took supplies in for a pyjama party to give her sister and her husband a night off. Conventional medicine is not helping and the only thing that may help- stem cell therapy is opposed by the senator.She tries to get him to [...]

    10. 3.5 stars bumped to 4I received an advanced copy of “The Lives Between Us” from the author in exchange for an honest opinion of the novel.I enjoy reading novels that explore current controversial subjects while maintaining a compelling story, and this is one of those stories. In this novel, Theresa Rizzo uses embryonic stem cell therapy as her controversial theme. By the end of the novel, I learned more about that particular subject than I had previously known. Embryonic stem cell research i [...]

    11. This book gave me so much to ponder. My father had Alzheimer's Disease. Although he passed from another condition, it definiely affected my feeling about stem cell research, particularly as I age. So "The Lives Between Us" hit me pretty hard. First of all, because of the propensity of Alzheimer's in my family, I would love to believe that a cure will be found quickly, but for other families who have other conditions, there is so much to be learned.The reader gains a lot of knowledge from this bo [...]

    12. "The Lives Between Us" deals with the controversial topic of stem cell therapy. I found it well-researched and definitely thought provoking. It makes you realize that your life experiences can significantly alter your view on topics like this. In this book, Skyler, a reporter, sets out to destroy Senator Edward Hastings who does not support embryonic stem cell therapy because her niece died and may have benefited from such treatment. Skyler begins to date Hastings friend Mark. As she gets to kno [...]

    13. This novel delves deeply into the issue of stem cell research. This is something I didn't know much about. Now I have a better understanding of the uses for stem cells, as well as the difference between stem cells derived from umbilical cord blood and those from embryos. Both sides of this ethical debate were represented and I'm still not sure where I stand. It definitely left me with something to think about.These deeper issues are explored within the frame of a romance novel. I enjoyed the rom [...]

    14. **I was provided a copy of this ebook from the author for honest review**Wow! I don't know exactly what I was expecting when I started this, but this far exceeded those expectations. I was a little dubious when I started this book and realized one of the major plot points was stem cell research. I had the opportunity to know ahead of time, but silly me paid no attention and just decided to jump in without reading the blurb or excerpt. First, stem cell research is a much heavier topic than I am u [...]

    15. Ah! I just finished this book and I NEED to talk to someone about the ending! You all better read this book soon so I can ask you what you think happened at the end. Go on, get reading!After reading the beginning chapters I thought this book was going to be a romance which is not what I normally read but I am happy to report that the novel gets much deeper. There is still a romance storyline but the book delves into the ethical dilemma for stem cell research. Skylar (Skye) is a young reporter wh [...]

    16. ★ ★ ★ ★4 Stars!It took me awhile to getting around to reviewing this novel, but I have been quite busy. This is a heartwarming and intense read about the difficult questions revolving around using embryonic stem cells. The opinions of the characters are very raw and real, and Theresa Rizzo does wonders at making each character's opinion their own without swaying in different directions. In particular, the protagonist Skylar's opinion as compared to Senator Edward Hastings' conflicting vi [...]

    17. For reporter Skylar Kendall, digging into other people’s business was her job, yet, her own life was a walled off bastion with DO NOT TRESPASS vibes shooting out like daggers.When one of the few to break through to her heart, her young niece became a victim of the anti-sentiment and funding toward stem cell research. One of the most outspoken political figures against this miraculous research became her number one target as she became a crusader for those who cannot speak for themselves. Michi [...]

    18. When you are orphaned as a teenager, you likely will feel unmoored. Even if, as with Skylar Kendall, you have loving, supportive surrogate parents in your sister and her husband.So it is no surprise that Skye is a bit peripatetic, reluctant to commit to a career, a home, or romance. She currently finds herself in her hometown, near her sister and brother-in-law and her cherished niece. She even has a job she likes, working as a reporter.Skye also has quite definite, quite definitive feelings reg [...]

    19. Wow! What an emotional, page turner to the very last page. First, than you to Theresa for providing an advanced copy to review. This was the first novel I have read of Theresa's but it will certainly not be my last!What I liked the absolute most about this book were the characters. Each character was very well developed. I was able to connect with each of them at different points. I learned a lot about stem cell research in this book as well and the way Theresa frames the book, she forces you to [...]

    20. Thanks to Theresa Rizzo for the free electronic version of her book, “The Lives Between Us”.Rizzo “runs the gamut of storytelling” in this novel. This novel is politically charged and discusses hot-button issues, while still having elements of romance, drama and suspense. The protagonist, Skylar, is a young reporter who is struggling with the illness of her young niece- an illness that she believes may easily be cured if embryonic stem cell therapy hadn’t been so strongly opposed by Se [...]

    21. OMG. This definitely ranks as one of the best books I have ever read. With a mix of investigative journalism, politics, heartbreaking searching for innovative cures, double dealing and romance. It fits into so many genres but is, quite simply an amazing, superbly written and enthralling novel that I have no hesitation in highly recommending. The differing viewpoints regarding the ethics of using embryonic stem cells is the key thread throughout this amazing, highly emotional novel. Don’t assum [...]

    22. The Lives Between Us by Theresa Rizzo was a fascinating read and kept me engaged right the way through. I was a little thrown by the ending - read it twice and had to admit to myself I was still unsure. It wasn't until I read the questions for discussion at the end of the book that things clarified a little for me. Hmm interesting.As I began the book I was soon on to Google to find out a little about stem cell therapy and in particular embryonic stem cell research and therapy. Just enough to foc [...]

    23. The Lives Between Us by Theresa RizzoHave read the author's other works and know I am going to enjoy this read also. It's about some medical breakthroughs that my daughter had worked for a company waiting for FDA approval to be part of the stem cell research-that is one reason I wanted to read this book.Skylar Kendal is a reporter and likes to do research, especially for her niece who needs a stem cell operation but no labs have the bone marrow nor do any match. Skye blames it on Hastings who is [...]

    24. The book follows reporter Skyler Kendall; she's a bit of a commit-a-phobe and always wants to be the one who leaves first. She is close with her sister, Faith, and with her niece. Unfortunately, her niece is quite ill with a heart condition and is on the waiting list for a transplant. Skyler makes it her mission to find another option but her niece's only other hope lies in embryonic stem cell therapy. Edward Hastings is a Michigan senator who is vehemently opposed to the use of stem cells and S [...]

    25. This is a lovely book that is heartbreaking and sad and romantic and wonderful all at once. In a sense, it’s reflective of life in general. Reporter Skye Kendall has always had a special bond with her 9 year old niece. When Nikki dies of a heart ailment that possibly could have been reversed by a stem cell transplant, Skye bitterly attacks Senator Edward Hastings for his outspoken moral and legal views against the use of embryonic stem cells. Even though Skye’s job involves writing human int [...]

    26. I just finished reading a wonderful book written by Theresa Rizzo, called The Lives Between Us. This book takes place in present day Michigan. It is a book about a very controversial subject, embryonic stem cells. The author tackles the subject in a very sensitive way. Skylar Kendall is a reporter who has a hard time letting people get close to her. Her parents died when she was younger. Her sister and husband took her in. They have a nine year old daughter who is deathly ill. The girl’s on [...]

    27. Pain of loss, hardship, integrity, persistence and love are just a few of the emotions that pulled me into this book and kept me reading. The Lives Between Us was an interesting story about the controversial topic of embryonic stem cell use and cord blood stem cell use. What starts as a story about a reporter, Skylar Kendall and her anger directed at Senator Edward Hastings for "playing god" by blocking the use of embryonic stem cells for research and therapy, something that she feels could have [...]

    28. Theresa Rizzo contacted me and asked if I would read and review her newest novel. I accepted with pleasure (this has never happened before!) and I received a free copy. I so wanted to return the favor by giving The Lives Between Us a rave review; unfortunately, I can't honestly do that.First, an editorial/publishing problem. The book is riddled with mistakes--words omitted, wrong possessive form of words, incorrect spellings. How many people read a book before it goes to print??? I find it very [...]

    29. This is a thoughtful, dramatic journey into the issues surrounding embryonic stem cell treatment. At a time when we are mourning the loss of Nancy Reagan, it's especially timely. Nancy's deep love for her husband and the heart-wrenching repercussions of Alzheimer's led her to become an activist in this area. So it is with life, and Ms.Rizzo has successfully written a book that will take you on such a journey. The book is also about love and life choices. Beautifully plotted, we follow protagonis [...]

    30. The Lives Between Us by Theresa Rizzo5 StarsWhen Skylar’s niece dies of heart failure, her grief turns into revenge as she places the blame on a local senator and his aversion to research into the one thing that may have saved her. As she starts a personal campaign to ruin his career she unexpectedly meets and falls for the senator’s close friend Mark, which makes her question her actions and choices.I really enjoyed this book, as usual Theresa has written a thought-provoking story that make [...]
