Book Review- Love Finds You In Victory Heights, Washington by Tricia Goyer and Ocieanna Fleiss

i was pretty stoked to get a book to read about Washington state cause i live here and i love my state. but then i find out it talks about places i know about! i was pretty happy about it!  this book is set in the 1940's  during the war (when isn't there one? )  it was somewhat hard to follow only because i don't know what a riveter is or stuff like that. like gas rations or what not. but other than that it was really good. i loved being able to know where things were that they were talking about. like Boeing and downtown it was just so fun! it flowed really well i thought. even though i didn't understand some stuff in the story i still thought it was good. it makes me curious to read more of the "love finds you.." series. maybe i will!  also here is the summary of the book, info about the authors and a contest! hope you read it and enjoy it like i did. 

thanks to litfuse for providing this book free of charge in exchange for my review!

About Finds You in Victory Heights, Washington: The war has stolen Rosalie’s fiancĂ©, Vic, from her forever.  But rather than wallow, Rosalie distracts herself by cramming her days full of activity—mainly by shooting rivets into the B-17 bombers that will destroy the enemy.

When a reporter dubs her “Seattle's Own Rosie the Riveter,” even more responsibility piles up. Her strong arms bear all this, but when intense feelings surface for Kenny, the handsome, kind-hearted, and spiritually unwavering reporter, the fear of losing another love propels Rosalie to leave.

It’s only when Rosalie realizes that God has brought her to this place—and this person—for a reason, the sparkling grace of God compels her to let go of her own strength and lean on His, as well as open her heart to love.
