Welcome, Reluctant Stranger by E Journey

Welcome, Reluctant Stranger by E Journey is the last book in the “Between Two Worlds” series.  I have to say that this was my least favorite book in the series and I am not sure why.  I just didn’t feel like I could connect with these characters as well as  I did with the other characters in the first two books.  There were also places where this book didn’t seem to flow as well.  Now with all that being said I did still like this book.  I like that you don’t have to read all the books to know what is going on.  If you love romance novels than I would check out this series because even though I liked the first two books more than this one I would still recommend the entire series to you.

Welcome, Reluctant Stranger!

About The Book

Frantic flight, peaceful life. Act of treason on an island country. Cauldron of warring emotions. Exotic beauty, ace with a gun. Hunk with gifts for mockery and cooking.

Nine-year-old Leilani and her family mysteriously flee the island country of Costa Mora, leaving her father. Years later, her peaceful solitary life in California ends when she rescues Justin Halverson from thugs and she learns a devastating truth about her father. As she agonizes over her father, Justin comforts her, and they’re drawn closer together.

With Justin, she returns to her birthplace to get her father quietly out. There, she reconnects with her past, but can she forgive her father and accept him for who he is? Can she finally be at peace with who she is? Welcome, Reluctant Stranger interweaves a love story into a tale of past political intrigue and Leilani’s inner journey, accepting her past.

About The Author

EJourney is a realist who thinks she has little imagination. Credit that to her training (Ph. D., University of Illinois) and work in mental health, writing for academics and bureaucrats, and critiquing the work of others. She’s been striving ever since to think and write like normal people.

She’s a well-traveled flâneuse—a female observer-wanderer—who watches, observes, listens. And writes. A sucker for happy endings, she finds enough that depresses her about real life, but seeks no catharsis by writing about it. For her, writing is escape, entertainment. She doesn’t strive to enlighten. Not deliberately. But the bias of her old profession does carry over into her writing. So, instead of broad shoulders and heaving bosoms, she goes into protagonists’ thoughts, emotions, inner conflicts, insecurities, and struggles to reach balance and grow.

Hello, Agnieszka by E Journey was a great addition to the first book in the series.  If you happened to miss my review on the first book you can click here to check it out but you don’t have to read these books in order.  You can read them in any order that you want to.  I have really fallen in love with this authors style of writing and with the characters in both of the books.  There is something that I can’t put my finger on that keeps me coming back and not wanting to put the books down.  This book takes place in the 70’s so I could be considered an historical romance for those of us that are younger but I don’t think of it that way.  I did like the characters in this book but I think in the long run still like the characters from the first story.  If you are looking for a great romance novel than you should check this one out.
