Thank you St. Martin’s Press for gifting me a copy of this book and inviting me onto the Blog Tour. All opinions are my own.
I rate this book a 3 out of 5 Stars.
I wanted a book that was going to make me feel all mushy gushy, something dripping with love, and some heartache. Because that is the kind of Romance I love to read. This fit the bill.
Seven Letters really was a heartfelt read, Monninger wrote with great passion. I loved the characters, and found them very realistic, and easy to grow attached to. I loved her smooth writing style, and how the pages just seemed to flow easily. I didn’t find myself getting bored, or eye rolling a lot, which I tend to do with Romance Novels.
It really was such a beautiful prose and the synopsis had me so pumped to read it. I loved The Map That Leads To You, and although I didn’t love this one as much, I still really liked it. I think Monninger will be my go to Author when I am craving a good romance/love story. Because in the rare instances I want to read them, J.P. Monninger’s books have satisfied the cravings.
Also, I want to add that my husband is a Veteran, so I had already felt a connection Ozzie and his desire to be away from people and places. Some of his traits I’ve seen in my own spouse. I enjoyed that aspect.
