New review of From Finland with Love~

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.”

What People Are Saying…

“From Finland with Love swept me away. I was on board and fully engaged from the very first scene to its satisfying ending. Ellie Alanko writes with humor and grace, deftly weaving moments of poignancy and longing with madcap antics and sparkling dialogue. Alina is an unforgettable character and the supporting cast of characters is rich, varied and utterly original. I highly recommend this book.”
