Jordie is a survivor, tough and independent. She's had to be, since her husband was killed in Iraq. For the last eight years, raising her daughter and owning a popular New York City bar has kept Jordie plenty busy, leaving her no time for much of anything else. Aside from her sassy yet squirrely best friend Rachel, Jordie's social life is bare bones and her love life nonexistent. Truth be told she wouldn't change a thing; she's never been happier.

Then she meets Nathan, and he changes everything with one crooked smile, triggering a chain of life-altering events for the two of them, filled with romance, chaos, and deadly peril. Neither of them could ever imagine their relationship would resurrect an unknown darkness from Jordie's past, lurking in the shadows, just waiting for the perfect moment to strike. Jordie has never needed to be stronger for all of them to make it out alive.

First off, let me say, coming from a thirty-one year old from New York, I was CRACKING UP at all the references to my teenage years, NSYNC and Backstreet If H.J. would have talked about NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK...that would have been extra points.  BUT....she does reference my BF, Zach A+ to that!!  LURVE me some Mark Paul Gossilar. 
Jordie ROCKED!  I liked her from page one, her abrasive nature (being from NY/NJ), her hard-working mind set and the way she cared about her daughter, friends and family.  I just felt sad for her that something was missing, she was just meandering through her life, not really living...and in walks the words of Rachel Ray....YUMMMMMMMO!!
When the shit (yes, there is A LOT of cursing in this romance, but funny enough, it felt like HOME) hits the fan, and I won't give away Nate's little (BIG) secret just yet, but Jordie is put into a tough situation, but they come out on top, until both of their lives get rocked...and WHERE DID THAT COME FROM..I was like NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!
The ending was bittersweet, as I wanted to smack some sense into Jordie, and maybe slap Nathan around a little bit too...and I didn't want it to end...I hope HJ plans to write a story for Rachel, maybe more on her and a certain singer..hummmmmm!!
By the time I was finished reading FINDING JORDIE, everyone felt like family.  I could see myself working behind the bar, joking around with Mike and Carlos, talking "Boy Band Wars" with Rach and Jordie.  Maybe hitting on Frank..haha!  It was that REAL, you feel like you belong there.
H.J., thank you for taking me on a wonderful trip back home to New York, I swear I could smell the nasty hot dog trucks!!  haha!  I highly recommend FINDING JORDIE to my readers and I hope they will give it a read.
