Finding Me Review


 About the Book

A Contemporary Drama of Family Lies
and Forgotten Loves After her father and stepmother's accidental death, Kelli Huddleston sorts through their belongings and learns a shocking secret. Years before, her father faked his death during a boat wreck at sea--and faked Kelli's as well. He'd run from a wife, a son, and a daughter back in Tennessee, meaning Kelli has a family she's never known.
She's already cashed the payout on her dad's life insurance check and looks at it as her ticket to a new life. The lure and puzzle of digging into this hidden past is too much to resist, and she soon finds herself in Tennessee. When the trip threatens to open doors to the past better left shut, and her plans for the future are threatened, Kelli must make an agonizing choice that will change her life forever. (Goodreads)

My Review

 The storyline for this book intrigued me from the start. I think that this type of family difficulty is typical and this book sheds light onto what happens years later. Kelli thinks her family has all died long ago until she finds papers in her fathers safe after he dies. He lied to her for years and she has another family out there somewhere and being curious, she wants to meet them. I personally can relate to this pretty well though the circumstances were a little different. It's scary to realize you have another family somewhere that you never knew about and I liked reading about Kelli's journey. I also think this book proves how the choices we make today effect our family in the future. I do wish the last part of the book had maybe a better conclusion. I think the author made things too easy and too fast. In any case I enjoyed this book. 

Five stars.
