Goodreads Synopsis:
Seventeen-year-old Holly Mullen has felt lost and lonely ever since her boyfriend, Rob, died in a tragic accident. The fact that she has to spend most of her free time caring for her little sister and Alzheimer’s-stricken grandfather doesn’t help. But Holly has no idea that as she goes about her days, Rob’s ghost is watching over her. He isn’t happy when he sees his best friend, Jason, reach out to help Holly with her grandfather—but as a ghost, he can do nothing to stop it. Is his best friend really falling for his girlfriend?

 As Holly wonders whether to open her heart to Jason, the past comes back to haunt her. Her grandfather claims to be communicating with the ghost of Rob. Could the messages he has for Holly be real? And if so, how can the loved ones Rob left behind help his tortured soul make it to the other side?

Told from the perspectives of Holly, Jason, and Rob,Wherever You Go is a poignant story about making peace with the past, opening your heart to love, and finding the courage to move forward into the light.

My Thoughts:
Wherever You Go is a beautifully written tale of love,loss and finding your way under even the worst circumstances.

I was enthralled with this novel. Wherever You Go took me to places where I haven't been in a very long time. I loved everything about this book. The story was beautifully written and I fell in the love with her characters. Heather is an amazing author. 

Holly was such a strong character. With all of the tragedies and unexpected upheaval of her life she manages to keep it together the best she can. I thought that she handled herself beautifully. I loved that Jason was there for her, even when she didn't realize it. 

The emotion just poured off the pages. Such a heart warming tale of surviving the loss of a loved one and finding  love again in the most unexpected places.

I cried more times than I can count and I was gripped from the first page to the last. This is a novel that will stay with me for years to come.  A book that I will go back to time and time again. 

I Give This 5/5 Hearts.
