Where Life Takes You - Claudia Y. Burgoa Blog Tour

Becca Trent lived her childhood next to a cruel woman — her mom —who lived to torment and neglect her. During her high school years, her mother married; bringing home not only a new husband, but a step sister her same age. The latter took over her Mom's role — making Becca's life miserable. Including stealing Ian — Becca's best friend and boyfriend — Lisa treated her worse than her mother had for the previous fifteen years. A couple years later, thing ended up in tragedy. 

Becca buried that part of her life in the deep corners of her psyche, caught between sanity and nightmares. Between therapy, work and her constantly looming past she can't seem to find room to breathe. The memories of her late step-sister, Lisa, are her closest company. 

Her best friend, Dan gives her that family love she always lacked. Everything was close to perfect, until everything and everyone from her past came back. Now she's trying to figure out how to survive and keep that bond which seems now to be held together by a thread.

The first thing that got my attention of this book was the cover, then the plot. God this story was amazing, from the first page it got my attention until the last one. If it wasn’t because work and college I would have probably read it in one night because it was just so good.

Becca captivate me from the very start, her past was just so  hard, the letters she wrote to Lisa, her step sister, where just so impressive I even shared it with a friend because I was kind of curious since the first one.
Being inside her head was impressive and so hard to be inside but I loved every second and her friend Dan, was just so loving and patience. I love this guy and I knew of course he was in love with her, but he never actually pressure her on that topic of loving her. He was the source of love she missed all her life.

What I love about this book was the fact that I felt like a was Becca, I got to involve my self in every aspect. At the end too it was a confuse ending and I was in denial but to be honest I do understand her and I can’t wait to read the second book!

I give this book 5 stars.

Claudia lives in Colorado with her family and three dogs. Two beagles who believe they are human, and a bichon who thinks she’s a beagle. While managing life, she works as a CFO at a small IT Company. She’s a dreamer who enjoys music, laughter and a good story.
