Blog Tour: Finding Hope

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release date: September 1st 2014

Synopsis via Goodreads:
When insecure eighteen-year-old Kailee Hill gets caught tagging Iraq war refugee, Abrahem Yohanna's garage, she's not expecting him to act as her designated driver, hold her hair back when she pukes, or offer to be a shoulder to cry on. But she's failing chemistry and her life is falling apart, so she uses the number Abe leaves her and finds herself with a new tutor. 

The two quickly find themselves falling hard for each other. Kailee attacks a local grunt when he calls Abe a "sand nigger" and fights with her veteran brother to be with him. When she learns Abe hasn't told his family about her, she's heartbroken and the couple risks losing everything they've worked to build. To make matters worse, Kailee's previous acts make her the prime suspect in a serious crime. With Kailee behind bars and doubting his feelings for her, Abe must find a way to rescue the girl he loves and win back her affection . And to do that he’ll have to catch a crook…

My review of Book 1: A Missing Peace

Review of Book 2:
Because I read and loved book 1, A Missing Peace, I had high expectations for Finding Hope and I was not disappointed. I loved this book.  As the events in this book sort of coincide with things in the first book, I enjoyed seeing a different perspective on what happened in book 1. I was also curious as to how Abraham would ever be in a relationship with Kailee after all of the disrespectful things that she said and did.

However, after reading this book I really like Kailee. You really get to see what she goes through in her life and the reasoning behind a lot of what she did in book 1. I almost want to say that this book was a little better than A Missing Peace just because you get to see both sides of the story and there is so much going on. You see Kailee and Abraham's story while also getting a different perspective on Caleb and Mirriam. Also, there was a secondary storyline, or I guess tertiary line about Kaillee's brother and his PTSD.

I really loved Finding Hope and I love this series. I think the epilogue was great with the update on the three couples after several years. I love when authors do that because I'm always left with questions about whether the relationship survived and what happens years later. I give Finding Hope 4 stakes and I will definitely be reading this soon.

Beth likes her tea hot, her romance sweet, and her guys chivalrous. Real men hold open doors, refer to you as ma'am, make promises they keep, and aren't afraid to profess their undying love. It's not breakfast if there aren't carbs (at least, not in the South). Fajitas, carnitas, and churros are just few of her favorite things. Bet you can't guess where she's from ;)
