Life is uncontrollable at times. Erin’s husband had long since married the woman Erin found in her bed with him. When a coworker asked about a growth on her neck, her life turned upside down. That started a chain of events that culminated in her sharing a radioactive suite with another cancer treatment patient, Alan Beaumont.
Somehow, by the time you meet Alan, you know that he and Erin will probably meet. When finally they do, it’s unlikely that they would fall in love. Cancer treatment is not exactly romantic especially when you are sharing a suite.
My hat goes off to anyone who can write a book and keep all the characters straight. Stevie did a great job of taking a difficult topic and weaving it into a romance. The story reminded me of Fault in Our Stars, but without the drama of teenage cancer, hormones, and death.
Cancer is difficult at any age, but Erin and Alan show that it is a blip in the road of life, rather than the end of life in every case.
There is hope expressed in this book. I enjoyed A Rather Unusual Romance and gave it four stars.
