Just Destiny by Theresa Rizzo is a story of love and loss. Jenny and Gabe have been happily married for a couple of years and are about to go away for a weekend. Jenny leaves their dog with the neighbour, Steve, who has just become engaged to Annie. During the weekend, Jenny brings up the subject of children, knowing that she is pregnant, but things turn nasty when Gabe says he does not want any more kids. Jenny storms off on her bicycle with Gabe following, straight onto a road where Gabe is hit by a car. At the hospital, he is pronounced completely brain damaged and Jenny has some tough decisions to make. In the meantime, Steve has a few of his own choices to make and, somewhere along the line, his life and Jenny’s become entwined. What follows is the story of love, deceit, legal wrangling, and triumph. But whose triumph? And what is it for?

Just Destiny by Theresa Rizzo was a wonderful book and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It’s a heart-warming story - sad and bittersweet, yet happy as well. So much was happening, with several different stories meeting up with each other but it was easy to follow. Theresa has written this book in such a way that anyone who reads it will find themselves being drawn into the story, almost living the parts. It’s got a great storyline, good characters, and everything ran as one smooth story. I look forward to reading the next one!
