LOVE on the LINE (Great Expectations Love Stories: The Graykens Book 2)LOVE on the LINE by Laurie Lewis
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A great read about hope. Matt and Mikeala have found happiness in each other but it is always followed by a shadow of illness. Matt continues his battle with cancer, hoping that a potential bone marrow transplant from a sister he only just discovered can save the day. Together, Matt and Mikeala battle through it all, balancing moments of sorrow with ones of joy. But can they hope for a bright future when so much is at stake?
A great read. Well developed plot with twists and turns that I just couldn’t put down. Well developed characters like Matt struggling to stay hopeful or Mikeala trying to be strong for Matt and still follow her passions. Great cast of supporting characters like Daniel as a fun friend or Kate stubborn and brave. I loved the sense of a large family in the novel full of love and support for one another. However, at times all the drama with his sister got confusing and perhaps could be simplified for the reader.
I loved the use of contrasts in the novel with the whites of the hospital and the colourful decorations later on. Also with the moments of sadness and joy making the characters and their struggles more relatable and emotive. Or the bright hopes and dreams contrasting with the reality of illness perfectly written. I also liked the use of dates in the novel to give an indication of time progressing quickly for Matt which was a great addition. The mix of the science of hospitals and cancer with the romance of love and marriage combined perfectly to make a captivating read. Overall, a great read and I would give it five stars.
