It Had To Be You
By: Susan May Warren
Genre: Christian Romantic Fiction
Eden Christianson is an obit reporter in Minnesota. She also is her brother, Owen’s, biggest cheerleader. Owen has just signed a contract with a big league hockey team. Eden believes it is her job to take care of him and keep him out of trouble as he navigates the waters of the big league.
Problem #1: Owen doesn’t want Eden’s help unless it involves his laundry or cleaning his new apartment. Problem #2: Eden needs help from the team captain, Jace, to keep her brother in line. Problem #3: Eden doesn’t like the team captain because he comes with baggage and a bad reputation and he seems unwilling to help.
Through a series of events Eden and Jace find themselves on the same team. They forge a tentative friendship in order to protect Owen and to help solve a mystery. Will the friendship turn into something more?
Throughout the story Eden struggles to find her identity as a child of God. She believes that her worth comes from who her brother is or isn’t. She feels like she ought to be writing bigger, better stories but she can’t seem to get out of the obit department. Her life and her dreams seem to be hitting a brick wall.
I really like Susan May Warren books and this one doesn’t disappoint. This may be the first book this summer that I couldn’t put down.
Happy Reading! J
