And this reader question comes from an author!!! I love that authors are readers, too. So let’s help her out. Oh wait… ;) I think I know this one!! It was on MY Best of 2017 list, as well as a few others. Tee hee!!!!! Oh she’s gonna love it.

Sofia Grey asks:

Help needed to find a book, please!

I’m loving all the ‘Best of 2017’ lists, and I’m sure that’s where I saw this blurb, but now I can’t see it anywhere. Aaaaaargh!

The heroine’s husband / fiancé / boyfriend goes MIA. He’s military I think, and he’s gone for years, assumed dead. She slowly falls in love with another guy, but then her husband comes back. He’s spent all this time focused on reuniting with her. And now she’s torn between the two men, and in love with them both.

It may be a WW2 historical, or it may be contemporary. I’ve read SO MANY fantastic sounding book blurbs this week, I can’t believe I didn’t make a note of this one.

Please help me find it.

Thank you

I believe you’re looking for First by Kimberly Adams. :D Am I right???

If anyone has any other guesses, please load ‘em in, and we can make a “genre” list out of it. YAY US!

Sofia: Thanks, Maryse, but I’m not convinced it’s this one. The bit of the blurb / review that stuck with me, was from the boyfriend / husband’s POV, that he spent years trying to get back to her, with her as his goal, and then he finds she has someone else. Is that what happen in ‘First’?

Maryse: Sofia. I can’t tell you… but I can smile at you. :) *blink blink*

Nicole: Maybe it is the Consolation Series by Corrine Michaels. She thought her husband was dead and then he came back.

Tracie: What about Here With Me (The Archer Brothers Book 1) by Heidi McLaughlin.

MichelleS: Sounds like “First” to me!

Ali: First!!! I love her, why didn’t I read this book of Kimberly’s sooner?

Maryse: Ali I loved it so much!!!!! Made me cry quite a few times.

Lisa: Is it possibly One is a Promise (Tangled Lies Book 1) by Pam Godwin?

Time and Space by Rachel Robinson is a possibility. Some of the same characters from Crazy Good are in it. Awesome book!
