I have a Kindle that talks and I usually let Kindle read me the book while I do crafts. Well, I started doing that up to about 38% and then I just had to read it myself, it was that good.
The story is well written, well described and explained. The characters are well written and described. In fact they are so well described that you will find your self wanting to smack 2 people right in the face. Read the book. You will know who those 2 are.
At twenty-six Jessica Wilson believes her future is laid out. Her father and brother-in-law both died in war, and now she’s helping to care for her mother and her sister’s children. She’s also managing a wildlife rescue center in the Georgia mountains, where she met her wealthy Canadian fiancé, Blake McCormack, a rancher. Everything seems perfect. So why is it that she breaks into a sweat whenever she pictures Blake announcing their engagement at his parent’s annual rodeo?
Jessica is engaged to Blake. She has the engagement ring. All that needs to be done is announce their engagement. Blake wants to announce it to the masses at the rodeo his family puts on. Jessica has many doubts about this marriage. She loves him but she doesn't LOVE him if you know what I mean. He has money and will take care of her nicely.
Mark, the boy she fell in LOVE with 10 years ago, shows up on her doorstep to fulfill his mother's dying wish. When he had to leave town with his family, she was devastated. Took her a long time to get over him, or has she. Why did he leave and not write to her? Why did she not try to write to him? Was it pride or insecurity?
Read the book for the best story in a good long time.
I do recommend this book for age 16 on up. There is one sex scene for those who do not like sex in their stories. It is not disgusting. In fact, it is beautiful.
She lives with her widowed sister Jill to help care for her children, and works at an animal rescue center. She has recently become engaged to Blake McCormick, a wealthy rancher. She knows she doesn't love him the same way she loved Mark, but she is comfortable with him, they get along, and he will see that she and her family are taken care of. In another two weeks he will be announcing their engagement at a huge rodeo at the ranch. Although she has a gorgeous engagement ring, her finger had swollen and the ring had not been readjusted yet so it would fit. In a way she dreads the announcement.
It is then that Mark rides Bella, his Honda VFR Interceptor, back into Jessica's life. You'll have to read the book to see what happens next. I thoroughly enjoyed living these weeks with Jessica, her family, and Mark. Strangely enough, my favorite character was Jessica's mother, Clara. Blake turns out to be a fairly minor character, since we see only enough of him to let us glimpse his character. The plot may have been a bit too neat, but I wanted to believe, so I did. Jill's character could have benefited from more depth, but she does a good job of helping us learn more about Jessica. I thoroughly enjoyed the book for light reading, and recommend it to those who like the romance genre because it really is romantic.
I loved Jessica and Mark and hated Blake with a passion. I loved the small-town setting and all that goes with everyone getting into everyone else's business.
The author provided just enough background for the reader to get a handle on how the two met, got together and their lives in between, without being redundantly boring. As a reader, I laughed, cried, got angry and rallied for the truth to prevail.
I also enjoyed learning something about those who rescue others in military missions.
I love reading a love scene that doesn't make me feel like I'm in the bed with the characters. Well done! The story is so believable that I can imagine it taking place in any community in which there is a wealthy family who thinks they can control everyone else. Great storytelling!
There were some proofreading errors (ones most writers make when they proofread their own work), but they were not distracting enough to take away from the storyline.
This review is written per request by the author and gifting of the book.
Jessica and Mark met one summer when they were just sixteen years old. For just six intense weeks, they were inseparable, and although they were young, they both knew the bond they had formed was unbreakable. Unfortunately, both Jessica and Mark were from military families and their promises to stay in touch were soon impossible to keep.
Years pass and Jessica endures the pain and tragedy of losing her father and her brother-in-law to war. At just twenty-six, she busies herself with working at her animal sanctuary while helping her young widowed sister with her now fatherless children. She's only partially content with the fact that she's engaged to wealthy Canadian, Blake, an entitled and arrogant jerk... until Mark appears on her mother's doorstep one day.
Come Find Me is a sweet and charming story of young love, missed opportunities and second chances. I found myself rooting for Mark to win over Jessica once again, and hoped Jessica would see through Blake's phony, not so cleverly disguised fake facade. In fact, readers aren't quite sure who Jessica married, until very near the conclusion of the book. The one problem I had with the story was that Jessica's final decision was more or less made for her, but not wanting to give any spoilers, I won't share that.
If you enjoy a true love story and not a bunch of gratuitous sex and one-dimensional characters, you'll appreciate Come Find Me. I highly recommend it!
