Reese, a 4th year medical student working in the hospital treating Jonah, finds herself inexplicably and intensely drawn to Caleb. Though their backgrounds are worlds apart, Caleb and Reese realize that they have more in common than at first glance. Both are forced to make difficult choices as they struggle to balance their own desires with a sense of obligation to family and tradition. Between You and Me is a cozy romance story where the romance sometimes seems like an afterthought. The story draws you in with complicated and nuanced themes; culture clash, recovery from trauma, and grief all play a key role in this story. Reese has a somewhat belated coming of age story, wherein she struggles to discover her own desires for her life and career after years of blindly following the plan laid out for her by her high-achieving parents. Wiggs introduces us to characters who seem worlds apart, but their deepest wants connect them and hint at universals in the human experience.
