FINDING HOME by Marianne Evans
Alexa Gordon has had a disappointing break-up and now she just wants some joy and fulfillment and happiness in her life, not heartache and self-doubt. So when she hears from her good friends Vanessa Colby and brother Peter in England (Vanessa was her dorm mate when she studied abroad 3 years ago) she decides to fly back to England for a visit. When Alexa was in England before, Peter was just a guy that was fun to hang out with, but this time around they both start to realize what they have is more than just friendship. But Alexa lives in America and Peter in England so Alexa doesn't see how this new relationship could possibly work. But as the Bible verse at the beginning of this book says, "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him, and He will direct your paths".
What a fun romantic story. I loved Peter's endearing "Lexie-love" nickname for Alexa. He was quite the guy and made quite an interesting ending to this story. I loved everything about the story and it taking place around Christmas made it a perfect to read, with Christmas only days away!
