Book Whisperer's Rating: 

Sometimes you have to lose yourself to find where you truly belong...

Most girls would kill to spend months traveling around Europe after college graduation with no responsibility, no parents, and no-limit credit cards. Kelsey Summers is no exception. She's having the time of her life . . . or that's what she keeps telling herself.

It's a lonely business trying to find out who you are, especially when you're afraid you won't like what you discover. No amount of drinking or dancing can chase away Kelsey's loneliness, but maybe Jackson Hunt can. After a few chance meetings, he convinces her to take a journey of adventure instead of alcohol. With each new city and experience, Kelsey's mind becomes a little clearer and her heart a little less hers. Jackson helps her unravel her own dreams and desires. But the more she learns about herself, the more Kelsey realizes how little she knows about Jackson.

Oh my! I am moving Cora Carmack up on my “authors I must read all of their books because they can do no wrong!” list.  I loved Losing It and Faking It that I knew I had to get my hands on Finding It when it came out.  I was so blessed that Jackie and I were able to take part in Carmack’s tour blog so that I was able to fall in love with another one of Carmack’s books.

This book reminded me of the book Vain by Fisher Amelie.  In no way were they alike plot wise, but it was similar in the sense that the main girl, Kelsey, was struggling with who she really was as a person and because she didn’t know who she was or what was expected out of her and didn’t know how amazing she was, she was completely lost in the word.  Everything that she did, she did it to just feel, good or bad. That changes when she meets Hunt.  Hunt (or Jackson) sees something inside of Kelsey that was once inside of him and makes it his mission to help.  After multiple run ins, Hunter proposes that she travel with him and if he can’t show her brilliant adventures (the kind that makes a person new) then she can go back home.  Their adventures together were perfect.  Each one opened up each other and brought them into a new perspective about the world. 

It was amazing how these two characters fit so well with each other. It is also amazing how Carmack can knock another one out of the park!
