Rebound - Book Review

I recently read Heather's Justesen's second book, Rebound, which follows the storyline of some of the characters in her first book, The Ball's in Her Court.

Here's the back cover blurb:

Lily's life is perfect--a perfect lie. With a successful husband, a gorgeous home, and a growing family, Lily Drake has it all. But when the FBI shows up, she realizes her husband is not the man she thought he was. Meanwhile, Lily's friend Curtis is about to be drafted by the NBA, but he suddenly feels pulled to find his birth family, and no one is prepared for what he'll discover. With so many obstacles in their way, Lily and Curtis must learn to rely on each other if they're ever going to find peace and learn to love again. In this heartwarming family drama, Heather Justesen, author of The Ball's in Her Court, weaves a stirring story of hope. Reunite with your favorite characters and discover how determination, love, and faith can overcome even the toughest trials.

If you enjoyed The Ball's in Her Court, I think you'll definitely enjoy this book as well. The tone and style are very similar, and some of your favorite characters from the first book make appearances in the second book. I always love that.

I did enjoy this book quite a bit. The characters were rich and the issues were pretty complex. I especially liked Curtis. I really liked the way he was portrayed in this book. The tone was a little bit distant for me, though, and I felt the climax wasn't fleshed out as well as it could have been. Still, all in all, I'd recommend it, especially for lovers of contemporary romance with touches of real-world issues.
