Book Review - The Reunion by dan Walsh

Publisher's blurb: Everything lost can be found.
Aaron Miller knows a thing or two about loss. He's lost love. Dignity. Second, and even third, chances. Once honored for his heroism, he now lives in near obscurity, working as a handyman in a humble trailer park.
But God is a master at finding and redeeming the lost things of life. Unbeknownst to Aaron, someone is searching for him.
With deep insight into the human heart, consummate storyteller Dan Walsh gently weaves a tale of a life spent in the shadows but meant for the light. Through tense scenes of war and tender moments of romance, The Reunion will make you believe that everyone can get a second chance at life and love.

My Review: I liked this book well enough to keep reading. The premise of the story is very interesting. The story flowed well, was an easy read and had interesting characters. I think the thing that bothered me most is that it was a little too easy,  a little too perfect. There were no glitches, everything happened exactly as it should, everyone was ultra nice. It seems this book was written while wearing rose coloured glasses.

I think the the main plot is great, but think it could have been written with a more realistic slant. I would still recommend this book to others. It is a good read even if a little too fairytailish for my liking.
