Finding Emma
Publication Date: October 20, 2015
Rating:  4 Stars
Told in the first person from both the point of view of the two main characters.    

**Finding Emma is a full-length, standalone contemporary romance. Due to language and some sexual situations, this book is not intended for readers under 18**


For the last year, Emma Owens has been quietly detached from everything and everyone. Desperate to escape the demons that chased her out of her hometown, she’s learned that life here in Milwaukee is just less complicated and less tragic when it’s a one-woman show.
In the span of one week, everything about her carefully orchestrated solitude comes crashing down. Then again, she can’t really ignore the scratching coming from her patio door or the hungry, pleading grey eyes reflecting in the moonlight. Those four little white paws and that tiger-striped fur thaws some of the ice keeping her heart on lockdown and she’s attached before she knows what hits her.

Emma doesn’t have any better luck ignoring another pair of eyes, and her new neighbor, Finn Matthews, with his shy persistence and a painful past of his own, slowly chips away at the rest of the ice trapping Emma in her insecurities and her loneliness.

Taking a chance on her new roommate and her next-door neighbor opens a door she’d previously slammed shut: the door to a new lease on life and the right to forgive, to fight back, and to heal.

And the craziest part about it?

It all started with a stray cat.

She was lost...and he found her.

My Thoughts:

Emma likes to live a quiet life.  Her life seems something of a mystery – one that gets revealed slowly.  A cat has decided that she needs him.  Finn has a neighbor that he’d like to get to know better.  He plays guitar so if you like to listen to music as you read, you might want to plan your music around that.  Maybe you have a drink of choice as you read – setting is Milwaukee and most should know what type of drink they are known for.

This is a great love story – it covers so many different facets of that emotion.  If you’re a pet owner then you can understand the love of an animal.  But sometimes that comes slowly.  Some people have to warm up to the idea especially if they’ve had a bad experience in their past.  Then we have the love of self.  It may sound easy but sometimes its not.  And this one may be the hardest type of love of all.  But when you meet the right person, it can help to make things easier.

Another type of love is the love of music.  There’s a scene where our characters are on their respective patios where they discover each other’s music interests.  But both Emma and Finn share other things as well and you will have to read the book in order to discover what those are.  Finn is just what Emma needs to break out of a life where lonely had a big part.  This is a book where you may need to examine your own life and emotions.  Some may even be able to relate to what these characters are going through.  I look forward to seeing what else this author has for her readers.
