Review time again!


9781622663835_p0_v5_s260x420An Army doctor, Lena Rodriguez has always been too busy with school or the Army for romance. But the letters she received during deployment have captured her heart. Back home for the holidays, she awaits Christmas morning to meet the man who has turned her life upside down.

When Zack Benson watched his best friend’s sister Lena leave for Afghanistan, he knew he had to tell her he loved her. So he sent her anonymous love letters. Now that she’s home, he realizes he’s made a tactical error. Lena has fallen for the man in those letters but still thinks of him as a brother. He has to convince her otherwise because if he succeeds, he’ll get the best Christmas present ever. But if he fails, he could lose her for good.

I’m a sucker for these stories of friends-to-lovers and this one was super sweet.  There are so many complications that stem from moving yourself from an honorary member of the family to potential love interest and Zack has decided that his feelings for Lena make it worth the effort.  I loved how he seduced her with anonymous letters but didn’t realize how effective it was until she came home.  Now he has to battle not only her brotherly feelings for him but her romantic feelings for her mystery man.  I really liked the fact that they started to act on their relationship before she found out his true identity because it meant that their feeling had a stronger base than whatever ideas she had about her writer. 

Letters From Home is a delightful, light romance – full of warmth and humor.  With irresistible characters, realistic dialogue and genuine emotions, Strasser delivers an enjoyable holiday treat.
