~ Synopsis ~

Lana Finch is a twenty-five-year-old social worker. She believes wholeheartedly in saving the world—one broken kid at a time. Lana is headstrong, she’s righteous and she’ll let nothing stand in her way. Except for maybe her entire family that’s financially dependent on her. Enter Mozey Cruz, the eighteen-year-old juvenile delinquent assigned to her charge.

He’s an illusive artist, he’s misunderstood, and he’s a natural born troublemaker. Their love is illegal, much like Mozey’s undocumented status in the States. So Lana lets him go even though it might be the worst mistake she’ll ever make. But destiny has a way of catching up with us even when we run from it.

Los Angeles———— ————Detroit Tijuana———— ————Mexico City

But first, Lana has to find him before she can deliver him.

~ My Thoughts ~

When I started reading The Delivery I had no idea what to expect and was pleasantly surprised when I felt an instant connection to Lara. Her everyday kind of girl appeal is what I liked most about her. From her physical description to the way her actions mirrored real life, I just kind of knew I was going to like Lara and connect with her on many levels.

Mozey, well I dare anyone who reads this book not to fall desperately in love with Mozey. He is such a complex character. He is a fantasy that comes to life within the pages of the story. Tall, handsome, rugged, talented, well spoken, sexy as sin, dominate and demanding. I will admit Mozey captured my heart.

The Delivery is a story that touches on so many topics. Family, love, life, loss, mystery, hope, desire and grief. As with all of her books Mara White enhances the story by adding in such colorful and vivid descriptions of locations, characters and the various backgrounds from which the characters originate.

Heavy on emotions as are all of Mara’s stories I did feel so many things while reading this story. Mostly I felt compassion, longing, hope and love.

Mara has the ability to lure you into her words and make you yearn for more. In The Delivery she shares a uniquely written story of family, the past, the future, discovering who you were meant to be and how you want to live your life. She shared the good, the bad and everything in between. Within those words you are treated to a vast array of unique and challenging characters which adds additional flavor to the story.

I will admit that while I was not reading the story thoughts of what was to come next would cloud my mind. To me well that’s a sign of a very intriguing book.
