Review: The Wonder of You by Susan May Warren

About the book:
Mortified after her semester abroad is cut short, Amelia Christiansen returns to Deep Haven, certain she isn’t brave enough for the adventures she’s dreamed of. The last thing she expects is for the man who broke her heart to cross the Atlantic and beg forgiveness.

Heir to a European hotel dynasty, Roark St. John has trekked from one exotic locale to another, haunted by tragedy and the expectations that accompany his last name. Amelia is the first woman to give him a reason to stop running. He’ll do anything for a second chance—even contend with Amelia’s old flame, who is intent on sending Roark packing.

While one surprise after another leaves Amelia reeling, Roark’s continued presence only highlights the questions pursuing her. Like him, is she running from the life God has called her to? Could finding her new place mean leaving home behind?

My thoughts:

Oh my goodness. This book was amazing. Seriously, amazing. I don't know what it is about Susan May Warren's books, but nearly all of them seem to capture my attention, tug on my emotions, and make me want the book to never end. The Wonder of You was no exception.

I've been loving this series and yet when I started this book I thought I wouldn't care for the romance (I mean, with what I knew of Roark, he just didn't seem that likeable). But, I absolutely loved the romance and even though there was a love triangle, I didn't mind it because it seemed believable and genuine.

The side story of Max and Grace was crazy and yet one scene especially was quite funny, because of the misconceptions. ;) Other things in the book, though, were heartbreaking and I just hoped that everything would work out alright.

All in all, I loved The Wonder of You! I completely recommend this series and I can't wait to read the last book, although I am somewhat dreading it because then the series will truly be over.
