If For Any Reason by Courtney Walsh




From the Publisher: "Emily Ackerman has traveled the world, her constant compass and companion a book of letters her mother left for her when she died. With no father in the picture, her mom's advice has been her only true north. But when professional failure leads Emily back to Nantucket to renovate and sell the family cottage she inherited, she wonders if her mom left advice to cover this . . . especially when her grandmother arrives to "supervise." And especially when her heart becomes entangled with Hollis McGuire, the boy next door-turned-baseball star who's back on the island after a career-ending injury.

As sparks fly between her and Hollis, Emily is drawn to island life, even as she uncovers shocking secrets about the tragic accident that led to her mother's death. With her world turned upside down, Emily must choose between allowing the voices from her past to guide her future or forging her own path forward".


The book is a sweet story of blending the past with the present. It is a story of personal growth, hope, understanding and forgiveness. While the storyline is somewhat predictable , it really doesn’t take away from experiencing Emily’s journey to self-fulfillment. I appreciated the Christian undertones to the book which added a special element. My favourite part of the book are the letters Emily receives from her late mother Isabelle, as well as Isabelle’s own story of falling in love.

I recommend this book to fans of Christian fiction, Women's Fiction and PG Romance.

Thank you to Edelweiss and Tyndall House Publishers for the ARC of this book in exchange for the honest review provided here.

My rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5
