I purchased this as a gift for someone else. The first chapter of this novel sets up the mystery that is answered in the last. Not only is the wedding planner wondering about the groom, so is the reader. In order to answer that question Bunkley takes readers on the adventurous road of a black Cuban woman, who takes chances, make sacrifices to build a life in a strange country, and the loves she encounters on her journey, which provides her a chance to see true love versus loves, which come with a higher price.

BETWEEN GOODBYES by Anita Bunkley is the stunning story of Afro-Cuban Niya Loundres, who escapes Cuba aboard a tiny vessel carrying Haitians to Florida. Vigilantes attack them right off the coast of Florida and she has to swim to shore with a gunshot wound to her chest. Her brother, Lorenzo, is missing. Niya is frightened, but pushes on anyway, in spite of her wound and the thick, thorny swamp she is in. She runs across Sandi Lee, a cook and waiter in her father's diner, who takes her in, and with the help of a Jamaican `healer', nurses Niya back to health.

Being an accomplished dancer and performer, Niya moves up quickly in the US, however, she is still distressed about the loss of her brother and she constantly worries about her mother back in Cuba. In her travels, she meets three wonderful men who immediately fall in love with her and want to marry her. Which one will she choose and how will she decide?

Anita Bunkley has spun a wonderful novel that includes life in Cuba as well as life in the US. The characters are so well- developed, I felt as if I knew them. It was well-written and the suspense continued until the last page. It is really a page turner and anyone, no matter your favorite genre, will find this a hard book to put down.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. It was like eating a full course meal and sighing at the end bcz it was sooo delicious!

I really liked Niya's character from the beginning bcz despite what had happened to her, she maintained a kind and gentle spirit. She also remained loyal to her mom and always believed they'd be reunited. All of the characters (Sandi Lee, Treemont, G-Daddy, Granger, Astin, Lorenzo) were well developed and fit perfectly within the story.

Bunkley's writing kept me glued to the pages anxious for the next event and each was as exciting as the one before.

You had the chance to watch Niya grew as a person and as a dancer. But she was a simple woman where family, love, and dancing were all she really wanted in life. Only the man who understood that could be her "true life partner".

For Treemont it was love/lust at first sight. Treemont was very stubborn, but when you learned why he handled money so poorly, you sympathized for what his childhood must have been like. But Treemont refused to listen ...

Granger loved Niya with a desperation that was fierce. With him she grew both professionally and sexually. But Granger had secrets . . .

Astin was like a fantasy. He understood Niya and wanted nothing more than to make her happy. He encouraged her to just "be herself". But Astin lacked backbone . . .

Read this novel to learn who Niya chose. Its a great read!!!
