Christa’s Choice by Teena Raffa is a quick, modern romance told from the perspective of a young Australian woman. Christa is on her way out of town, trying to escape a messy, heartbreaking situation involving her long time best friend and her almost-husband. As Christa plans to escape her life, she meets Reece. He is the last thing she expects to find and, really, the last thing she wants to find. Christa gets on a plane the next day but finds herself halfway around the world, still thinking about the kind, handsome stranger she’d met.
Christa’s Choice by Teena Raffa was a quick read, perfect for a tiny dose of feel-good romance. I enjoyed the descriptions of Glasgow, as it’s a place I’ve always wanted to visit, and Reece was the perfect, sexy gentleman that every woman secretly dreams of finding. I also appreciated the descriptions of social media bullying, as Christa tried to deal with her drama. Why complete strangers feel the need to attack people on the internet, without the full story, I’ll never know. Christa’s Choice also brings up the question: When should you stay and work through your problems, and when is it time to move on and make a fresh start? Christa’s decision to leave could be seen as either bravery or cowardice, and she often second-guessed herself along the way. In the end, though, things appeared to work out for her. Teena Raffa created a nice story that left me with a smile and the hope that love can win out in the end.
