Review: Between Here and Forever by Elizabeth Scott

Between Here and Forever


Abby accepted that she can’t measure up to her beautiful, magnetic sister Tess a long time ago, and knows exactly what she is: Second best. Invisible.

Until the accident.

Now Tess is in a coma, and Abby’s life is on hold. It may have been hard living with Tess, but it's nothing compared to living without her.

She's got a plan to bring Tess back though, involving the gorgeous and mysterious Eli, but then Abby learns something about Tess, something that was always there, but that she’d never seen.

Abby is about to find out that truth isn't always what you think it is, and that life holds more than she ever thought it could...


Before I start this review, I want it to be known that Elizabeth Scott is one of my favorite authors.  With that being said, I have very high expectations for her novels.  They have to really impress me.  And I feel that Between Here and Forever did not impress me as much as I thought it would.

The storyline was wonderful.  I felt it was very original, and it was something that would tug on readers heartstrings.  However, the beginning was slow.  It took me a while before I got interested in the story enough to want to keep reading it.  Honestly, the only reason I DIDN'T give up on reading it was because it was written by Elizabeth Scott.

The characters were just...okay to me.  None of them really stuck out as an awesome character in my mind, yet somehow it worked for the novel.  It's a hard thing to explain.  I didn't really like any of the characters, but I wanted to see how their story turned out and what would happen to them.

Overall, the novel is great but not Elizabeth Scott great.  I look forward to reading her next no novel and seeing what she does with that one.  I still recommend this novel to anyone who thinks it sounds interesting and who has read Elizabeth Scott before.


It was okay.  Storyline: great, but with slow pacing; characters: not so great.

Rating: 8/10
