About the Book
Actress Emily Van Arsdale has returned to her Idaho hometown – with an entire film crew in tow! With its stunning scenery and reputation for hosting celebrities, Sun Valley is the perfect setting for Emily’s newest romantic comedy. Tracen Lake is happy to work as a stunt consultant for the movie but not as thrilled to deal with a bunch of high-maintenance Hollywood types. But Tracen is surprised to discover in Emily a down-to-earth Idaho girl who does all her own stunts and loves the outdoors. As filming wraps up and Emily heads off to her next gig, will she be able to leave Sun Valley – and Tracen – behind?
Emily Van Arsdale isn’t your typical actress – she’s more down to earth. She is a believable example of “you can take the girl out of the country, but you can’t take the country out of the girl.” Or, in this case, you can take the girl to Hollywood, but you can’t take Idaho out of the girl.
Tracen Lake is a diehard outdoorsman and is anything but happy to be helping the film crew for Emily’s upcoming new movie.
I found Finding Love in Sun Valley to be an entertaining story, but it also dealt with real life situations. For instance, El-Jor, a young child in the story, was a victim of bullying. I appreciated Emily’s kindness and how she handled the situation.
Unlike most romances, there are multiple threads running through the story. A cute kid with a penchant for unicycles, a down to earth pastor and a sneeze-prone outdoorsman will make it almost impossible for you not to love the book.
Angela Ruth Strong writes an entertaining and different kind of story featuring Hollywood glitz in the great outdoors of Sun Valley, Idaho, interjecting many comedic, serious and sometimes heart-stopping moments throughout the book.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
