Book Review: "The Wonder of You" by Susan May Warren

"The Wonder of You" by Susan May Warren is the 5th book in the Christiansen Family Series. Amelia Christiansen is the youngest child of the Christiansen clan and her family tends to hover around her to keep her safe, but she longs for adventure. After her time in Prague she flees home with a broken heart. When Roark St. John follows her to Deep Haven, Amelia is confused on what she wants--the familiar Seth Turnquist or the exotic Roark St. John.
Roark knows that he needs to tell Amelia that he is the heir to the Constantine Worldwide company of hotels and is very rich. He wants to be honest with her, but he also wants to know if she loves him for him or for his money.
Will they find the path that God has for them? How will Amelia know which man God intends for her.
Any book by Susan May Warren is a reason to read it, so I was excited to read "The Wonder of You". Susan May Warren creates realistic and developed characters. I didn't want to put the book down. I enjoyed the way the characters wanted to do what God wanted them to do but sometimes struggled with following, just like a regular person would.
Besides the main story line, this book also follows Max Sharpe, Grace Christiansen's fiance, and his struggles to love life with his realization that he is going to die earlier than Grace. Susan May Warren also sets up the story for the last book in the series, "You're the One That I Want" scheduled to be released in February 2016. (I can't wait!)
It would be best to read the books in the series in order as you can get to know the characters better that way and the later books have continuations of the other siblings' stories from the earlier books.
I would highly recommend this book.
