It's been awhile since I opted to review a book, but I'm so glad that I, somewhat on a down-time whim, signed up for this one.
Still reeling from the sudden death of her father and stepmother, Kelli Huddleston begins to sort through her father's belongings...and finds clues to a former life she had no idea even existed. Confused and desperately in need of answers, Kelli travels to Shoal Creek, Tennessee in hopes of finding out the truth. In Shoal Creek, she begins piecing together the pieces of the puzzle, but are some things just better left buried?
No joke – I read this book within 24 hours. The story was intriguing and I found myself quite caught up in Kelli's search for answers. Somewhere in the middle, I began to feel like nothing “new” was happening, but that only lasted for a few pages. I thought the ending was lovely, I liked how it wasn't cookie-cutter, picture-perfect, yet was still beautiful and very real. I enjoyed my time in “Finding Me” and am glad to have it on my bookshelf.
