Journey to the Heart #1

Releasing June 5, 2017
Pocket Star

Camille Marino has got a full plate. As the sole guardian of her eighteen-year-old sister and the head chef and owner of a food truck, she’s used to life being a juggling act. With food to cook, social media accounts to manage, and a little sister to look after, she doesn’t have time for much else.

That is, until Drew Bautista walks back into her life.

Drew is Camille’s former high school crush and he returns to San Francisco to repair his relationship with his father before he ships out for deployment. By helping his father renovate his failing Filipino restaurant, he hopes to win back his respect. But when sparks fly between Drew and Camille—his father’s major competition and sworn enemy—Drew is conflicted. Should he join his father in the war against her food truck? Or surrender to the woman who’s given him a second chance at love?

4 stars

North To You by Tif Marcelo was such a cute, nicely paced story about love, family, and second chances. This book hooked from the very first chapter, and I didn't want to put the book down until it was finished.

I absolutely loved the relationship between Camille and Drew - they were a really sweet, adorable couple. They are probably one of my top favorite fictional couples so far. I also like to see the relationship that Camille had with her sister. Also, all of the characters are likable, and most are relatable.

This was such a wonderful, quick read that I would highly recommend to others, especially if you are in the mood for a light contemporary read.

Tif Marcelo believes in and writes about heart-eyes romance, the strength of families, and the endurance of friendship. A veteran Army Nurse with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and a Master of Public Administration, she is a craft enthusiast, food-lover and the occasional half-marathon runner. As a military spouse, she has moved nine times, and this adventure shows in some of her free-spirited characters. Tif currently lives in the DC area with her own real life military hero and four children.
