Finding My Way by Heidi McLaughlin Blog Tour, Review and Giveaway...


Heidi McLaughlin

The Beaumont Series, #4

Liam Westbury has the world at his feet. He’s the quintessential golden boy. He’s the superstar quarterback for Beaumont High. His girl, Josie, is head cheerleader. He has his choice of colleges just waiting for him. Except he’s suffocating from all the pressure he’s under and no one understands.

Liam Page is the heartthrob he never wanted to be. He’s successful, smart and in demand by record companies and his adoring fans. Music is his passion, his love, but something’s missing. His nights are lonely and he longs for the girl he left behind. Seeing her in every face in the crowd haunts him with the knowledge that she hates him. Going home has never been an option until now.

Be there when Liam Westbury becomes Liam Page and follow the highs and lows of the Quarterback turned Rockstar as he finds a way back to Beaumont in this prequel to Forever My Girl.

Review by Tammy:
5++++ Stars!
First off I promise you will not be able to put this down. Heidi is able to make you truly see and feel what it is that Liam is going through. I read the Beaumont series a while ago. Yes I was the one that sat at home and from Friday night till Sunday night read the WHOLE series. Forever My Girl, My Everything, My Unexpected Forever & Finding My Way in 1 sitting. YES she is able to hold you attention for that long! Not many authors can do that. Believe me I know. Now what can one say about Finding My Way...
Liam is a young boy/man that is struggling with his life choices. We learn that his "father" planned his whole life for him through football. Saw nothing else for his son but the NFL. Yet there was something deep down inside that was calling him. Music covered up the voices in Liam's head. It helped him figure this out in a different matter. Yet could he talk to anyone about this? Would they even listen to what he had to say or sing? Will Beaumont let the golden boy try something different? Will his love Josie understand if he chose a different path for them? This is a decision that will affect the rest of his life. The rest of her life.
For me the ending was the part. That ripped my heart out. The thoughts that were going through Liam's head at that very movement are so unreal. Yet they couldn't have been more truthfully for his state of mind.
This book........ this book right here will make you fall in love with Liam & Josie all over again. (fyi you are gunna want to read Forever My Girl again once done) Being able to meet Grandma Betty and feeling the love that she gave young Liam that he craved so much from Bianca yet couldn’t have. That is breathtaking cause there is no love like a GRANDMOTHERS LOVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Just go get this book NOW!!!!!!! You will not disappointed. Thank you Heidi for making me love Liam Page/Westbury even more than I did before. LOVE YOU WOMAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Review by Georgette:
5 Stars just isn’t enough!!
Going back to the beginning of Liam and Josie’s relationship was a stroke of genius on the part of Heidi McLaughlin. 
Showing us the trials and tribulations that Liam went through to make one of the hardest decisions of his life was heart breaking.  You learn to understand that Liam did not make his choices without severe conscious thought behind them.  He tried really hard to be the person everyone thought he was and not the person he wanted to be. 
You can feel Liam’s loneliness although he is surrounded by great friends and the love of his life.  All everyone thought of Liam was football and nothing more than the man he truly wanted to be. 
To see the character of Mason come alive was so beautiful and gutting at the same time! I loved the dynamic the two of them shared.  It tells the story on why Liam had to come back to Beaumont when he did. 
I didn’t think I could dislike Liam’s parents any more than I originally had, but dislike is a nice word once you really got a glimpse into his childhood! 
Grandma Betty was a refreshing addition to this cast of characters! I loved the way she guided Liam to follow his TRUE dream and not what others wanted for him.  Her unconditional love and support was amazing.  I loved that she was responsible in bringing Harrison into Liam’s life. 
I loved young Harrison! Still the same quiet guy with an easy rapport to him!  Liam was so conscious and loyal to his friend, there was no way he’d leave him behind!
Yes, Liam made mistakes.  But what you learn in life is that the mistakes of your past build you into the best person you can be in your future.  Everyone needs to make mistakes and learn from them.  It’s called life!  
Thank you again Heidi for bringing us such an amazing prequel!! I look forward to so much more of your writing!
