Who I Am With You Book Review

6:04 PM

Hola readers!
Another random book review for your evening -- I'm planning a special post talking about my day + time management for tomorrow so stay tuned!

Jessica Mason isn’t looking for love when she meets Ridley Chesterfield. Instead she is still reeling from the tragic, unexpected loss of her husband and daughter—and awaiting the arrival of her unborn child. Harboring the secret of her husband’s betrayal, her pain is deeper than anyone knows.
Ridley Chesterfield is hiding out in Hope Springs, Idaho, avoiding a political scandal and the barrage of false media headlines that have tarnished his good name. The last thing Ridley wants is a relationship—but when fate leads Ridley to form a friendship with his reclusive and pregnant neighbor, he wonders if this small-town hideout might be more of a long-term destination. 
When Jessica begins to read her great-grandfather’s Bible, she finds a connection with a man she never knew. Somehow the verses he marked and the words he wrote in the margins open her heart to healing. And as Ridley and Jessica help each other forgive the people who have broken their hearts, they must decide if the past will define them or if they will choose to love again.

The cover of this book was the cutest and I couldn't wait to get my hands on this romance book. Nothing like a cute contemporary for your day. I've only read a few Robin Lee Latcher books and Jessica and Ridley's love story sounded like a cute one. The historical side of the book is very realistic and the love story is indeed compelling. HOWEVER, I'm a HUGE HUGE Denise Hunter fan and I feel this book from Robin Lee Hatcher was bland and the character growth struggling unlike some of my other favorite authors. I had a hard time getting into the novel as it went on, and Jessica just didn't grow like I wanted her too.
I honestly just got bored.
I've seen really good reviews about this book so I wonder if it's just me? Maybe I expected too much? The book was just too bland for me. I love characters I can relate to and to laugh as well as cry. For someone (not me!) looking for a simple read for some winter reading or fans of feel-good fiction, this one is for you.
It just wasn't for me sadly -- I really wanted to like the book.
Oh well...

Have you read the book? What did you think?
