FINDING HOME by Marianne Evans

Marianne Evans delivers a sweet Christmas read. She takes us to London via Alexa “Lexie” Gordon, a California girl who refuses to spend Christmas alone regretting her past relationship. So she takes a trip to London to visit two college roommates.

Peter Colby and his twin sister give Lexie an enthusiastic welcome and pamper her as well. Peter’s long-held emotions for Lexie shine through during her stay making Lexie question everything she feels.

Marianne’s characters are richly drawn and keep you guessing until the very end whether Lexie will follow her heart back to London and to Peter.

I loved Finding Home and Marianne’s vivid descriptions. I’ve never been to London, but after reading this book, I felt like I’d taken a trip "across the pond” and enjoyed afternoon tea and scones with old friends.

And at the end of the book…a lovely surprise. Lexie’s Cream Scones Recipe.


Do people from England really say that? You tell me.

Recommend buying Finding Home for the sweet story, great characters, and the oh, so awesome scone recipe. Check it out!

Marian, I can't thank you enough for the wonderful review of Finding Home! I'm thrilled you enjoyed it! Your reaction is just what I had hoped - like you'd been transported to London at Christmas. :-D Glad you liked the recipe! Couldn't resist sharing it!! And, though I'm not a Brit, I've been to London twice and don't so much recall folks saying 'Cheerio' as often as they say, 'Cheers' --- But I leave all things British to those on the other side of the pond! LOL!! God bless, and thank you again!!!
