Review: The Other Side of the World

For this review, I chose The Other Side of the World by Suzanne Whitfield Vince.

I received a copy of the ebook for a honest review of this book.

Here is a brief description from Goodreads:
Sometimes, love can surprise you…

The Girl:
Rowan McClain has everything a girl could ask for: a handsome, charming husband and a successful career as a romance writer. But when Prince Charming’s affections begin to wane and her mother’s cancer returns, Rowan’s perfect world begins to crumble.

The Guy:
When Army Lieutenant Luke Cartwright arrives in Iraq, the last thing on his mind is falling in love. But when a friend gives him a copy of RJ McClain’s book, he writes a letter to the author using his friend’s name on the return address. After exchanging several letters and sharing their deepest secrets, the two become unlikely friends.

The Happily Ever After?
After a year with no letter from Iraq, Rowan becomes convinced that the soldier she had befriended has been killed in the line of duty. Now divorced from her husband, she moves on with her life. But when her sister sets her up on a blind date with a soldier named Luke Cartwright, Rowan begins to feel as though she has met him before. Will she give into her feelings for him? Or will thoughts of the man she had come to love through his beautiful letters keep her from giving her heart to Luke?

I loved this book!!  This was such a sweet story.  Rowan is a romance author and she loves fan mail.  When she receives mail from a soldier, she is intrigued.  The characters were well developed and I could see this all happening.  I was hooked from page 1.  I can not wait to read more from this author.

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
Recommend this book? Yes! Author? Yes!
Read more from this author? Yes!

Happy Reading!
