Book Review - Searching for Beautiful by Jennifer Probst

ABOUT THE BOOK


The highly anticipated third novel in the Searching For series from Jennifer Probst, “one of the most exciting breakout novelists” (USA TODAY), featuring a runaway bride and the man who wants to be more than just her best friend…

Genevieve MacKenzie has her life completely under control. About to wed the charming Chief doctor at the local hospital, she’s an up-and-coming surgeon with everything she could ever want. Until an escape through the church window on the day of her wedding sends her life into a tailspin…and flings her right into her best friend’s arms.

When Wolfe catches his best friend falling out a window on her wedding day, he doesn’t ask questions. He whisks her away, determined to watch over her and discover the truth behind her desperate escape. But when his feelings turn more than platonic, he realizes he may risk his most important relationship in order to protect his damaged heart, and the woman he loves.

Can Genevieve and Wolfe’s friendship turn into something deeper—or is it already too late for true love?

REVIEW


I have been waiting for Wolf’s book for forever!  Ever since he was first introduced in the Marriage to a Billionaire series, I’ve wanted to learn more about him, his past, and the man he became.  I was not disappointed at all by Probst, who did a great job writing his story in a believable and relatable way.  Gen is another character previously introduced and it wasn’t a surprise to find her a runaway bride at the beginning of this book.  We’ve seen hints of the friendship between these two before, but seeing it unfold in Searching for Beautiful made the friendship feel real to me.  There are reviews that complain about how slow this book feels, but for me that is what makes the book so great.  The importance of their friendship and what it brings to both of their lives is the main conflict in the book and understanding that importance made it an emotional experience as the characters struggled with their romantic feelings for one another. 

Fans of Probst’s work will love this book and her writing just keeps getting better with each book.  I am very glad there is only a month to wait for the next book in this series and can’t wait to read more about Stone and Arilyn.


OVERALL RATING - 5 STARS!
