  “When Anne finds a roll of undeveloped film in an old camera of her great-aunt Edie's and has it processed, she makes a startling discovery. Anne's father's cousin Carl was reported killed in action in Vietnam in 1970.

My personal Rating-
As a photographer, I found this one to be really interesting! I did get a bit confused on who-was-who and how everyone was related, but I think I also could have tried a bit harder, to be honest. Like always, I love the cover to this book as well with all the details and really enjoyed the story inside! :)

See y’all on Monday with a new review!

My personal Rating-
{Add ½ star for those interested in teen drama.}
{Add ½ star for those interested in fashion and designer names.}
Like the previous book in this series, “Rendezvous” had quite a bit of faith content. As for the teen drama parts, it felt like there were less in those regards. Still cleaner than other YA books by this author, I personally have days when I want to read a “fluffier” story and this one fit the bill. (I mean that in a good way. ;)) Those highly interested in fashion and designers would probably enjoy this series the most, however. :)

See y’all on Friday with a new review!
