  • Engaging and Exciting story of family and friends

    What an extraordinary story. The characters and their situations are very engaging. Irene has this ability to write characters I would love to meet and situations that are unusual but very plausible and interesting. She adds in just the right touch of suspense that sparks my curiosity and I can’t put her books down. This is a stand-alone book that contains some extended family characters from the book Cleaning Her House (another excellent book). What happened in the other book has no bearing on this story, but it was fun to encounter those characters again. This book takes place a while after Lauren becomes a widow. Shocking family secrets, a missing heirloom, culture clash, and a hike in a life-threatening snowstorm combine to make one wintry December memorable. The title really tells us the central story. How they met and what happened next. However, the title applies to other characters in this book as well as the main ones. The story is emotional, and suspenseful. You will find yourself caught up in the character’s lives, cheering their successes and wanting to help them with their challenges. I am an avid fan of all Irene’s books and have been for a long time. I am grateful that she provided me with a copy of this book to read. This review is voluntary, and these are my honest thoughts about this book.

  • A heaping of trouble

    It is always a pleasure to read a well-written novel by a talented author and “How They Met” has intrigue, mysteries to be solved, and awkward relationships to unravel. Invited to what turns out to be an incredibly difficult house party, Lauren agrees to attend a holiday weekend in the mountains to please her daughter, Wendy. She quickly sums up the situation and prepares herself to intervene if necessary as the Rawlings matriarch throws out insults and innuendos. However, it is not Wendy that needs to be evaluated as their golden boy's prospective bride, but rather the young man himself. Unfortunately, in his mother's eyes, he can do no wrong. When the situation turns from bad to worse, support comes from unexpected sources, thereby creating the possibility of new relationships. However, Wendy's difficulties are the least of Lauren's problems and when the weekend from hell is over, she still has to face troubles at home. Later, Lauren and Wendy find themselves at yet another house party, with a further slew of surprises, when more than one problem is solved. This highly entertaining novel is a standalone and comes to a very good conclusion, leaving me satisfied with the promise of love and a future for the various parties. I received a copy of this book as a gift and this is my honest and voluntary review.
