Where I'll Find You is a standalone novel about a young woman called Hadlee. Her life is full, with university studies, a job, living in shared accommodation, and a (very) un-supportive mother. The last thing she wants is a man in her life. However, Kaisen has other ideas, and keeps popping up when Hadlee doesn't expect it.
Although the characters are mostly good, the one I didn't get on with was (unfortunately) the main female, Hadlee. She is most definitely high-maintenance, both as a friend and a love interest. I understand life hasn't been easy for her, but she is definitely a drama-llama. She is supposed to be studying psychology, but her friends know more about it than she does, and she refuses to acknowledge anything that might trigger her, instead blaming others.
This is quite a hard review to write because I am a big fan of J.A. Owenby's, but this book just failed to hit the mark with me. Don't get me wrong, I still very much enjoyed it, but it wasn't a 5-star read like her others have been for me. The premise is a good one, and it is told with style and aplomb. It is intriguing and intricate, leaving plenty of questions in the reader's mind until the author is ready for them to be answered. There are no editing or grammatical errors that disrupted my reading flow. I have no hesitation in recommending this book, even though Hadlee and I didn't see eye to eye.
