Letters from Home

When Army doctor Lena Rodriguez leaves for her deployment to Afghanistan, her brother’s best friend, Zachary Benson, rushes to see her before she leaves. He has the intention of telling her exactly how he feels about her, but when he finally makes it to the base, he’s too late to say goodbye to her. He watches her board the plane and he feels heartbroken because he really wants to tell her his feelings before she leaves. So the next best thing for him to do is write letters to her while she’s away. The only catch is he doesn’t intentionally sign his name to them. Lena wonders who the guy is back home that has a massive crush on her. When she gets some leave time at Christmas, she returns home with every intention of finally finding out who the guy is that has been writing these letters to her all along. How does Lena react when she finds out that the guy behind the anonymous love letters is really Zach? Could a relationship work between them?

This was an enjoyable story for me and I thought it was fun at first to see Zach writing those anonymous love letters to Lena while she was deployed in Afghanistan. I couldn’t wait for her to find out what guy it was. I worried though how Lena would react to the news, as well as her family when they found out. No matter what, I was hoping they would end up together. Overall, this was a fun story that I got lost in for a little while.
