“I realize now that my heart is big enough to hold love for more than one person. You gave me my happily, and he will give me my every after.”
A Right to Remain is a book that brings together a few of my favourite tropes all wrapped up into a highly addictive story that will keep you page turning from first to last page. First and foremost, this is a love story, a story of two characters that have their own heap of hurt to contend with and a new love is the furthest thing from their mind. Then you have that air of mystery and suspense that Beth Rinyu cleverly wove throughout culminating in a suspense filled ending that will have you wringing your hands in anticipation and hope.
“Sometimes we need to stop wasting time trying to mend the things in life that are beyond repair. Instead, we need to allow them to fall completely apart so we can start rebuilding them with a stronger foundation, and Lacey showed me how to do just that. She reconstructed the pieces of my heart, day by day, little by little, piece by piece, until it was finally whole once again.”
Quinn Lavery was a character that you cannot help but fall in love with. This man had a heart of gold and would do anything for anyone. He was a police officer and he was married but at the start of this book his marriage is failing and he and his wife are in counselling. Having experienced a tragic loss, Quinn’s wife did the unspeakable, rather than seek solace and comfort in the arms of her husband she chose to seek it in the arms of another, the ultimate betrayal. Quinn had never been enough for her, she had always been career and money oriented and honestly, their ideals and aspirations had just drifted apart. It is through counselling that Quinn realises his marriage is over.
Lacey Sullivan had lost her husband in tragic circumstances and the scars from that event two years ago still haunt her to this day. Lacey decides a clean break in a new town is what she needs to try and heal and so she ups sticks and with her trusty companion they embark on a new life. They move miles and miles away, they rent a cabin and Lacey gets a job as a teacher. The cabin was quiet, on the edge of the woods and the setting was truly tranquil, the perfect environment to regroup and take stock of her life.
Lacey meets her landlord sooner than she anticipates as he is living in the cabin above her. Following the breakdown of his marriage Quinn is living in one of his cabins and once introductions are made and initial insecurities and wariness are overcome a beautiful friendship soon follows. Lacey and Quinn have a lot in common. They have both loved hard and both lost. Both are grieving and coming to terms with the hand that they have been dealt and both of them soon seek solace in the words of the other. Their conversations bring wisdom, experience and clarity in muddy situations and both are a stepping stone to healing for the other. The growth of their friendship was beautiful to watch. Whereas Quinn once sought his answers at the bottom of the bottle, he now has Lacey to steer him right and whereas Lacey once internalised everything and kept everything bottled, she now has Quinn and therapy to open up and begin to mend those scars. Spending so much time together though blurs the lines of the friendship, but are these two ready to embark on love once again or will their pasts hold them back?
“If I had one thing to be thankful for this year, it would be for the girl who moved in downstairs from me a few months ago, the same one who with each passing day was moving slowly into my heart.”
The past always has a habit of infiltrating our present and for Lacey her past consists of painful memories and a lot of emotional scarring. It seems someone does not want to leave her past dead and buried and herein lies the mystery and suspense element of this story that keeps you on your toes while reading.
Beth Rinyu cleverly weaves a story that will have you second guessing throughout. With secrets getting unearthed, revelations aplenty and a friend or foe mentality you never know who to trust. But the crux of this story remains the blossoming relationship between Quinn and Lacey and it was truly heart-warming. To see two people, mend their scars and take a second chance on love with one another was memorable and you couldn’t help but champion these two along. They have a lot of mountains to climb and it seems that the world is against them but these two have longevity stamped all over them, they just need to believe in one and other.
“You make me feel alive when I’m with you, and that’s something I never dreamed would be possible again.”
I will say, there was one revelation that I didn’t feel was necessary and when I came across it I kind of deflated and it was this one thing that really took the shine off of what was up until that point a five-star book. Sometimes less is more and for me this plot twist wasn’t warranted and just made me feel a bit yuck inside, I can’t really explain it, but once you read it, you may or may not feel the same. However, it didn’t detract from a fabulous read that I thoroughly enjoyed and for all you romantic suspense readers I am sure you will love this one too.
A Right to Remain has it all. Mystery, angst, romance and spicy sexy time.
Lacey suffered a devastating loss, packed up and moved to a sleepy cottage in a small town. She is vulnerable and afraid but so strong in her resolve.
Quinn gave everything he had to his marriage but it still failed. He and his estranged wife suffered a loss that they could not recover from. He is heart broken and he is angry.
Rinyu weaves a great mystery inside of a beautiful romance. I was constantly surprised. The slow burn of Lacey and Quinn's relationship was a beautiful thing to read. When Lacey rents the cottage from Quinn and he lives in the upstairs apartment they become a source of comfort for each other. To me, this is her best work to date. The hero and heroine are both relatable lovable characters. Of course, Quinn is a hottie and grouchy on the outside and all softy on the inside. Lacey puts up a great front of being fine, but struggles with her losses. Her strength is her resilience.

The mystery is expertly woven in Lacey and Quinn's story and puts this book over the top for me.
The Right to Remain is an intriguing journey which I thoroughly enjoyed and would recommend to anyone.
I was provided an ARC for an honest review.

Quinn is broken & outraged over the loss of his child & marriage! After his wife turns to another, Quinn decides to spend time away from her to figure things out. Lacey is fighting through her own loss & battles when she moved into Quinn's rental. They build a beautiful friendship that starts to develop into more. I love them so much! I dislike Quinn's ex very very much! I could've jumped in the book several times & slapped her silly!
There were so many twists in the story that it leaves you guessing & on the edge for a lot of the book! I love that about a good suspense! There were a lot of tender moments as well!
Can Lacey escape her past or will it come back to ruin her future? Is Quinn destined to work out his marriage or is Lacey his new destiny? I highly recommend this book! You won't be disappointed!
I loved this story and look foward to reading more books from Beth Rinyu.
