Welcome, Reluctant Stranger by E Journey Blog Tour , Review and Giveaway









Book Description for Welcome Reluctant Stranger (Book #3):

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.    



Author's Bio:

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.

My review ;
Welcome, Reluctant Stranger by E Journey is a fantastic story. Leilani has led a great life. She has always had maids and great parents. Then suddenly she is whisked away from all she has know with her mother and siblings, but without their father. And so begins many years of doubt and worry about why he did not follow them, like he said he would. It has been 18 years since they were all together again. Then she meets Justin and saves his life from men who wanted to kill him. Justin is not able to forget her and they start to fall in love. Will she be able to finally forget her father or will something happen to make her want to find out if he is alive or dead? I give this book a 4/5. This is Book 3 in the "Between Two Worlds" series by E Journey. I have read and reviewed the first two books and I liked both of them. I was given this book for a review and all opinions are my own.
