Love Finds You in Victory Heights, Washington

 I just finished Love Finds You in Victory Heights, Washington. It was a very cute book. I really enjoyed that it took place in our new backyard. It gave me some great ideas about places to visit. I enjoyed reading the book and actually knowing some of the places they were describing. For the most part I really liked the story, I love reading about the time period it was placed in--WWII. It was a unique picture of what was going on in our country at that time. However, sometimes in an effort to be authentic the verbiage ended up sounding stilted at times. It didn't flow for me. I am curious about the other "Love Finds You" books and will probably try to find some of them.

Thank you to litFUSE Group for providing this book in exchange for my honest review. 

About Finds You in Victory Heights, Washington: The war has stolen Rosalie’s fianc√©, Vic, from her forever. But rather than wallow, Rosalie distracts herself by cramming her days full of activity—mainly by shooting rivets into the B-17 bombers that will destroy the enemy. When a reporter dubs her “Seattle's Own Rosie the Riveter,” even more responsibility piles up. Her strong arms bear all this, but when intense feelings surface for Kenny, the handsome, kind-hearted, and spiritually unwavering reporter, the fear of losing another love propels Rosalie to leave. It’s only when Rosalie realizes that God has brought her to this place—and this person—for a reason, the sparkling grace of God compels her to let go of her own strength and lean on His, as well as open her heart to love.
