From http://bestchicklit.com/?p=5029 (BestChickLit.com):

“Alanko gets the tone of this, somewhat lengthy, self-discovery story spot on from the beginning. The disasters start brewing as soon as we are introduced to our exceedingly likeable but somewhat cautious narrator as she is bullied into getting a horrendous haircut – the start of a slippery slope.

From Finland with Love is studded with stunning descriptive prose about the American and Finnish landscape which had me yearning to go. I also loved learning about the Finnish culture which is described so beautifully. The inevitable disasters had me cringing and giggling in equal measures and despite her numerous mistakes, I never stopped rooting for Alina.”

From Finland with Love out in bookstores and on Amazon…debating next step. Could be a polka.
