Praise for the Book

"Chelsea Curran's careful construction, fully formed characters, and gently crafted romance make Unseen Road to Love a sweet, tender, powerful read. What would you do with your second chance?" — Diane Stringham Tolley, author of Daughter of Ishmael

"Chelsea Curran's debut novel Unseen Road to Love is full of twists and turns. I found myself breathlessly rooting for the romance, as well as for Logan's redemption, in this fast-paced story of change, choice, and—of course—love." — Jennifer Griffith, author of The Legally in Love Series, Chocolate and Conversation, and Big in Japan

My Review

UNSEEN ROAD TO LOVE was about missed opportunities, redemption, forgiveness, and a second chance at love. A heartbreaking story in places, fulfilling in others, made for a sweet read.

I really liked Logan and Addie and how they got each other. I also really liked Logan's brother, Mark, and the camaraderie between the two of them. It was fun when Logan's family teased each other and it felt like a realistic family setting, for the most part. The romance was adorably sweet and had some decent chemistry. The ending,even if a little stretched out, was fun and I especially loved the very end. It was a perfect moment.

I did have some issues with a few aspects of the story. I didn't feel like some of the POVs were necessary, such as Mark's and Logan's mom's. Then there were a few other aspects of the story that just felt like they were thrown in and didn't need to be. Some of the dialogue felt stilted, but I think that will definitely improve as the author writes more books. There were some editing issues with typos, although minor. Beyond these, it was still a decent story and one that I enjoyed overall.

In the end, was it what I wished for? This was a sweet and enjoyable story that had a few issues, but I think the potential was there and I'm curious to see what the author will write in the future.
