Book Review: Finding Rose
I won Finding Rose on a blog tour over the holidays--actually, I hit them up for an eBook version instead (my bookshelves are overflowing!). Written by Stephanie Humphreys, a first time author, this was a fun read. I found her characters to have well-rounded personalities (although Rose herself was a bit immature--but she starts off as a 19 year old, so maybe she would be immature at that age) and the plot moved at a good pace. Although not a perfect book, I applaud Humphrey's on her first novel and look forward to seeing more of her work in the future.
On his deathbed, Rose Sterling’s father asks her to consider Miles Crandall as a suitor. Then Rose is sent to live with an uncle in Spring Creek, Montana, far from her carefree life with her family in Utah. Miles is returning to his hometown of Spring Creek to set up a medical practice, so Rose is certain her being sent there is a setup. Yet Miles doesn’t seem interested in her, and after Rose falls ill in Montana, he seems content to act as her physician and friend. When Rose captures the attention of Miles’s younger, flamboyant brother as well as the town sheriff, Miles retreats even further from
any attempt at courtship.
How can Rose honor her father’s last wish if Miles doesn’t even try to court her? Will she have the courage to put her heart on the line and fight for the one she really loves.
