REVIEW – THE TIME IN BETWEEN (Magdalene, #3) by Kristen Ashley


After a painful loss, Cady Moreland is coming to Magdalene to start the next chapter of her life. A chapter that began eighteen years ago but had a heartbreaking ending. The time in between was full of family and friendship, but Cady could never get the man she fell in love with all those years ago out of her heart.

Coert Yeager has learned to live without the girl who entered his life right when she shouldn’t and exited delivering a crippling blow he never would have suspected. The time in between was full of failing to find what he was missing…and life-altering betrayal.

But when that girl shows up in Magdalene and buys the town’s beloved lighthouse, even if Coert wants to avoid her, he can’t. A fire in town sparks a different kind of flame that won’t be ignored.


As Cady and Coert question the actions of the two young adults they once were thrown into earth-shattering circumstances, can they learn from what came in between and find each other again?

Together we flew and together we drifted down to earth, to his bed, his room, this world, this life. Ending still with Coert and me. Yes, it was glorious.



Readers get ready to be swept away by another epic romance delivered in Kristen Ashley’s signature style. This woman knows how to create some of the best alpha males in the adult contemporary genre. The third installment of the ”Magdalene” series is a second chance romance between two amazing characters who have been separated for nearly two decades over unfortunate circumstances and complete miscommunication. I think KA fans are really going to enjoy this one. Her descriptive narrative enhances the reader’s enjoyment—you actually feel as if you’re living in the small town of Magdalene.

Cady and Coert’s love affair started back in Denver almost twenty years ago. Their attraction was instant and it didn’t take long before they were falling deeply in love with each other. Cady was on the outs with her parents and older brother because they didn’t approve of her life choices or the people she chose to call her friends. Cady has a full-time job at a local supermarket and she takes on as many hours as she can so that she can afford to put food on the table and pay the rent on her tiny studio apartment. At a party one of her best friends is throwing, she meets Coert and she’s instantly drawn to him even though she knows she probably should steer clear of him due to his association with the criminal element in town. But their chemistry is too strong to deny and even though the timing is definitely wrong for the couple, they try to hold on to faith that their love will be able to survive.

Coert has been keeping a huge secret from Cady and once she finally learns the truth, it sets a chain of events which leaves the couple devastated and sends them both down very different paths in life. For almost twenty years they lead separate lives and although it may seem that they have moved on, their hearts remained the same.




After so many years have gone by, Cady ends up being the newest citizen of Magdalene, when she buys the town’s lighthouse and the land that surrounds it. While she has a major project on her hands with the renovations on the Light House, the real reason she is in Magdalene is to see if there’s still a chance to rekindle what was lost with Coert. Coert is antagonistic and extremely hostile towards Cady during their initial interactions. She begins to question whether she made the right decision in moving to Magdalene.

As the story progresses, truths about the past are revealed and misconceptions are laid to rest. The couple attempt to give their relationship another try but will they be able to rekindle the spark from long ago or has time diminished what they once had?
