It comes to us via Rachel’s Random Resources and features a book that easily fits into the Contemporary Fiction, Romance, and Women’s Fiction genres, all while bringing fans of each a literary feast. So get ready for all the feels because today’s blog tour guest and ebook of choice is...
Love You From A-Z
About the book...
Experience has told Jenna Oakhurst that Happy Ever After may happen in all the best stories, but Happy For Now is the best one ought to expect in real life. Yet lately even that isn’t quite enough, so when a strange set of circumstances leads her to discover a mysterious letter in an abandoned storage unit, she takes the chance to embark on a journey into the unknown…just like the heroines from the storybooks.
Reaching out to the letter’s author, Henry Somners, changes Jenna’s world irrevocably and she starts to realise that the magic she believed in as a child might not be such a fanciful notion after all…
First off, let's take a moment to really look at that cover!
I love the design, from the color scheme to the items so carefully chosen, because while striking, it also tells a story all its own...something you'll understand more once you read it. Each image has a significance to uncover, and will lead you continually onwards toward that hoped for HEA.
Secondly, the story!
I so felt for Jenna. The lackluster relationship she had been muddling through was adequate, until she knew better. Until she took a moment to dream with her eyes wide open, allowing herself the chance at that WHAT IF we're all trying to grasp at. Did it pan out for her...umm, can I get a raincheck on that answer? No, really...it's not just a YES or NO kind of question, and I wouldn't want to spoil it for you! Seriously though, once she starts following those questions she's posed for herself upon discovering the mysterious box of memories, once she makes the connection to someone from its' past that becomes entwined with her future, once she takes a step towards something (and someone!) she's only dreamed of before, things start to HAPPEN...and she'll grow through those changes, come what may.
A delightful story filled with hope and heartache, as well as the reminder that love isn't just something shared by a couple, but something that can be felt in the company we keep, the friends we make, and the family we choose. The idea behind the title was special (and is revealed in the book!), but everyone's story looks different, and that's the true beauty of love. It really is in the eye and heart of the beholder. A great addition to your summer reading escapes, so grab a copy for your beach/day bag today!
