4.5 "Ready Now" Stars Excuse me while I pick myself up off the floor after having swooned right into a huge pile of mush. (The ending to this book was simply perfect.) Rebecca Hunter's debut novel was a well written tale of finding oneself even in the most unlikely places and people. Stockholm, Diaries, Caroline follows Caroline as leaves her suburban life in Detroit to do the one thing she has always wanted to do but never done: travel. Caroline is a photographer that put off her dream of being a travel photographer when her boyfriend asked to her to wait while he went to Law School. Years later it's obvious he isn't going to leave with her and she's fed up with her predictable lifestyle. So she heads off to Stockholm, Sweden in hopes of reviving her lost dream. Her best friend Veronica and her husband live there so it's a logical first step. After getting settled into a temporary apartment while the owners are away on vacation, she keeps running into a very attractive but intimidating man. He first saves her from a dangerous man while she's taking pictures in the street in the middle of the night. After running into him again and again and finding out that he lives right across the hall, she finally gets him to talk only to have him shut down every time. As Niklas starts to open up to her and they share a few intimate moments, Caroline realizes that she may have more feelings for the mysterious man. While on a photography job taking pictures of the local hockey game, she learns that Nicklas is actually the troubled star of the team. The realization starts an intense but rocky relationship between the two. Ms. Hunter's stellar writing hooked me right from the start. With intrigue and a bit of mystery, I was pulled into Stockholm's nights and it's people especially Nicklas. We are introduced to him little by little and everything I learned made me desperate for more. The start of the book was a little slower than the latter part but once we finally meet and learn who Nicklas is, the book takes off and there's no looking back. I fell for Niklas right along with Caroline. At times I wished Caroline would just stop questioning everything (mostly because I'm a big sap and wanted poor Niklas to find something happy right away), but I loved the realness that this story described. In the end I really did appreciate that as much as this was a story of finding love in the most unexpected places, it was really about Caroline's growth and evolution. She had to question everything to truly find what was going to make her happy so that she didn't start living the exact same life of doing what someone else wanted all over again. I loved seeing her stick up for herself and learn to trust her own instincts and not to settle. I have to say I was a bit nervous at how this story would end. For a while, I didn't think I was going to like the ending but I should have known Niklas wouldn't leave me hanging. I still have the biggest, cheesiest smile on my face remembering that ending. I actually read it more than once because it was absolutely swoon worthy and I didn't see it coming. I was struggling right along with Caroline but Niklas made it perfect. I can't wait to see what the rest of this series holds. I'm beyond ecstatic that Caroline and Niklas are getting a continuation to their story but I'm truly excited to see what other Stockholm Diaries stories play out.

3.5 of 5 Stars Stockholm Diaries, Caroline by Rebecca Hunter is a contemporary sports romance taking place in Sweden. Photographer Caroline Mendoza leaves her home in Michigan to set out on an adventure to see and photograph the world. While she is in Stockholm, she meets her neighbor ex-Red Wings hockey player Niklas Almquist. She knows her time in Sweden is short and does not want to give up her travel dreams, but she struggles with her emotions about leaving Niklas. This novel is suitable for adult audiences. I like that Caroline was a photographer. I was an AP photographer in college and used to photograph the hockey games, so I could relate. I like that she was brave enough to set out on her adventure. I liked Niklas. I felt bad for the negative media press he received. It is horrible that false/speculative media coverage can effect someone’s life so much. Caroline and Niklas have great chemistry. I did not like Ludvig. He definitely had ulterior motives. Plus, I felt he was bitter because he was not successful in hockey. Stockholm Diaries, Caroline was believable and entertaining. I enjoyed the ending. I do want to read Caroline 2 to find out what happens next. Complimentary copy provided via in exchange for an honest review.

Reviewed by: Bela This is the story of Caroline Mendoza living life in Stockholm, the capital of Sweden. Her job is an interesting one: she is supposed to write an article (max two) in various countries throughout the whole summer. It doesn’t pay much and she has “to fund the rest of [her] way around the world.” (9) Still, I wish I could get a job like that. I’m always marveled by Latinas in travel. Then she meets Niklas, the “friendly” Swedish neighbor. Strange how he always looks like he’s been in a fight. Was he a hockey player? Of course, he was! I did wonder why Caroline was attracted to this rude brute of a man—and he was a man, a BIG man. Mmm, maybe that’s why. Hockey seems to be a major thing in Sweden and it played a key role in the book. Too bad I’m not a sports fanatic. Story was a bit mediocre with mild portions of wit and playfulness. However, I believe readers will be able to relate to Caroline, especially her stubborn independence, her bleak finances, and her relentless ambition to see the world. It’s true how Mexican fathers will insinuate that traveling women are less likely to find a husband, which, according to them, should be #1 on the list, and I like that Caroline and Veronica are two Latinas that don’t follow the tradition. Go, chicas! The real battle, of course, is the painful, confusing one between love and sports. Can Caroline and Niklas make it work? "Would the electric attraction between them run its course by the end of her time in Stockholm, or would it change into something much harder to break away from?" (61) Will their unexpected love survive? Like sports, the romance is an intense and powerful one; it is hard to decipher and tough on the heart.
