All This Time by Tiffani Burnett-Velez was a great story. I can’t say enough things about this book because it is in the genre of books that I love the most. I also loved this book because it brings issues that people are dealing with in our country and brings attention to them. I have always had a soft spot for people who served in the military so I know that helped me fall in love with this book as well. Anyway in this book you get to follow along with Lydia as she deals with the suicide of her fiancé and dealing with the fact people were saying that he killed two Marines while he was deployed with them in Iraq. I love that this story touches on murder, PTSD, mental health and racism. This book was written amazingly and I am adding her other book to my list of books that I want to read. If you love stories that touch on current subjects that I would recommend this one to you!
