Product Description

On the surface, Jenna Landsen has it all…

She’s smart, beautiful, confident, and married to Camden Landsen, who happens to be drop dead sexy and just as successful. But after five long years, all the success in the world hasn’t brought the romantic spark back into her marriage. Jenna fears it never will.

When life gives you lemons, open a bakery and name it Vi’s…

Violet Streiff made the exact mistake her mother warned against—she fell in love with Liam Coffman, a charming finance major. When he left her heartbroken to further his career, Violet drowned her sorrows by opening a bakery, and now relies on Bob, her eighteen-pound cat, for warmth at night instead of a sexy man.

To find love, sometimes you first have to discover yourself…

When Jenna’s job offers an extended trip to New York, she packs her bags and takes a two-month vacation from life. The chance of her marriage surviving looks grim, until the surprise of a lifetime throws a wrench in her plans to stay in the Big Apple for good.

You can bend the rules—but sooner or later they’ll break…

When Violet meets a gloomy but totally drool-worthy guy named Camden in her shop, she’s sure her luck has changed. There’s no denying the chemistry, but he’s married, and that’s a major problem. Violet isn’t a homewrecker. Still, staying away from Camden proves nearly impossible. That is, until his wife comes home.

Two women.
Two men.
Double the chance to find love in the most
unexpected places—or double the chance for disaster.

4.0 out of 5 stars 4 Stars 4 December 2015
By Lauren - Published on
Without you is a really nice contemporary romance and is definitely an easy, quick read for a quiet weekend. I'd say it pretty similar to the type of story written by Nicholas Sparks. Lindsay Detwiler is a very talented writer.

Without You is mainly set with Jenna in New York and with Vi in a small town (I think it's a small town) coffee shop. Both settings relate well to their respective characters - Jenny's high flying business trip and Vi's own little coffee shop. So this also relates well to Camden's relationship to both women. He meets Vi when he is lonely and doesn't know if his marriage will survive. He needed somewhere to go really.

I quite liked the characters, although they aren't too rememberable. Camden appears to be the nice, kind, good looking male character who doesn't know what has gone wrong with his marriage. He's happy with the quiet life. Because of this, I liked Jenna the least. Camden would give her anything and she practically threw their relationship away. But, I did start to like her more as the story progressed.

I really liked Vi. She tries not to let anything get her down. But she still struggles with heartbreak and her emotions and it is definitely something everyone can relate to. Similarly, she gets her hopes up. I do find Vi a very strong person as she powers through to make sure her business is a success. She is someone anyone would want to be like.

Without You is told via the alternating perspectives of Jenna and Vi during a period of 6 weeks whilst Jenna I'd in New York. This shows us the differing and confusing feelings of both women who are in essence looking for the same thing. It also shows just how quickly feelings can change or build up. Lindsay Detwiler writes both women so well and their characters are completely believable.

I felt the story told was somewhat predictable, but there were a couple of twists that I really didn't expect. It didn't end the way I thought it would either. The plot also had quite a nice pace to it. As it covered six weeks, you don't see every single day, just the important bits. I really liked this, as feelings didn't just suddenly disappear or reappear and everything builds up gradually.

I did like the end. Everything is tied up and everyone is happy. I do feel that it may have been a bit of an easy-out. I was surprised at the appearance of a certain character right at the end.

I would definitely recommend Without You to fans of Contemporary Romance. It is your "after-the-happily-ever-after" type story and portrays that even in the happiest marriage; it won't stay as happy for long. There has to be give and take on both parts.

I will definitely be looking out for more by Lindsay Detwiler in the future.

4.0 out of 5 stars Thank you Lindsay, for reminding me that even when a marriage is just every day boring, it is still special. 2 December 2015

I received a complimentary copy of Without You in exchange for an honest review.

I’ll be the first to admit when I read the summary of this book my tummy was in knots. I have a hard time with a single woman being “friends” with a married man when the marriage has troubles and the wife also happens to be away for work for 2 months. I honestly wasn’t sure where the book would go and I would agree with the terms – but I went into it with an open mind and heart hoping for the best. I was pleasantly surprised! I REALLY enjoyed this book. The author’s way of portraying an actual marriage was AMAZING! I’ve been married for 21 years – so I can totally relate and see where this book was coming from.

Jenna is married to Camden, after 5 years of marriage, Jenna feels the spark is gone. She keeps trying to bring back the spark – however, feels that Cam isn’t giving 100%. When Jenna has the chance to leave for 2 months and go to NYC ( 5 hours away) – she feels this is just the break they both need. Will it bring back the spark? Will distance really make the heart grow fonder?

Cue in Violet, owner of Vi’s coffee shop – she is a heartbroken woman – the love of her life Liam, has recently left her. Camden and his adorable, but large pup Henry come in for coffee and a friendship blossoms. Cam was just as heartbroken as Violet – he thinks Jenna is going to ask for a divorce. His companionship with Violet is comforting, however his love for Jenna is stronger. Where will this friendship go? Will they find what they both need?

This is a more difficult review for me to write – I don’t want to give away any part of the love story. Truth be told – this is a love story – just told a little different than the “normal”.

4 Stars – thank you Lindsay, for reminding me that even when a marriage is just every day boring, it is still special.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is a great weekend or vacation read 7 December 2015

This book is a great weekend or vacation read. Lindsay Detwiler's descriptive writing will have you deeply connected to all four characters. The characters make you believe in real love in a marriage as well as the complications that can arise.

Sometimes it takes almost losing the love of your life to realize what you truly have. Throughout this book you'll be wondering if Camden will go back to his somewhat boring stable life with Jenna or move onto a more extreme and exciting new life with Violet. You'll be surprised with the outcome of this book.

I must say being an extreme animal love my favorites in this book are Henry, the 150lb mastiff, and Bob the 18lb beautiful black cat.

Love, Love, Love this book. Hope for many more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Relatable Story about Relationships 1 December 2015
By Melissa - Published on
I enjoyed the author's authentic story-telling voice. Her realistic portrayal of a marriage gone stale was told in a way that
any married woman would likely relate to.

The story is told from the point of view of two women who are seemingly unconnected. What they have in common is steeping in the dramatic turmoil of trying to figure out what's not working in their love lives.

I wasn't sure how Cam, Jenna, Violet and Liam's worlds would collide so the curiosity about that kept me turning pages. There were certainly some interesting plot surprises that I didn't see coming.

Cam was the character I liked the most and wanted a good outcome for. I also appreciated the comic relief provided by Henry, his wiley mastiff. There were a few wince-worthy moments where I wanted to reprimand the women for making bad choices. But I was relieved that there was a happy resolution for the characters.

3.0 out of 5 stars Though I did like it and I could relate to it at points 30 December 2015
By Casia P. Courtier - Published on
I recieved a copy of this book from the author for an honest review.

Without You is the second book from Detwiler that I have read. Though I did like it and I could relate to it at points, I liked the first book better. It was more because this one hit home with me.

I've stopped airing out my laundry on my blog a while ago, but I can definitely relate to Jenna's feelings of stagnation. It's been something that I personally have had a problem with and I'm sure other married couples have gone through it. I found my own way of finding a niche for me (and am still working on it), but I am glad I never did what happened in Jenna's life.

It was realistic, worrying, and showed me a life that could have happened if I went the route Jenna did. I instead found hobbies and took enjoyment in some domestic work (baking and ironing are favorites. I'm beginning to like cleaning as well). However, the emotions Jenna went through were worries of my own as well. Funny thing, I've been married for almost five years now (same amount of time as Jenna and Camden).

Violet's storyline was more enjoyable for me because it was an escape. I was able to live her life without the echoing of previous worries. Violet was sweet, caring, and had a lot going for her. I was happy to see her ending.

From the blurb, I'm sure you can figure out what happens, but I was surprised at how everyone ended up. I wasn't expecting the ending Detwiler had. I was expecting something open ended like her first book or something bittersweet.

All in all, it was an easy book to get into and I did like the characters. I find it interesting that the animals are named after Detwiler's own pets. It's just a fun tidbit that makes me smile. This is a nice contemporary work that pulls on the strings and may invoke your own worries in wherever you are in relationships.
