Zachary Benson has a secret...He's in love with his best friend's sister, Elena (Lena) Rodriguez. Unfortunately, there's the "code" to adhere to plus she's a busy gal. Enlisting in the Army and becoming a doctor has consumed all of Lena's time. And then she gets deployed to Afghanistan, leaving Zack on the tarmac not even knowing he showed up to see her depart - and possibly tell her how much he cares for her.

Elena is from a large family and likes to indicate that she joined the Army for some alone time. After leaving for Afghanistan, Lena receives a letter each month of her deployment, plus an extra one on her birthday, from a secret admirer. Over the course of those months she's managed to fall in love with the author, even though she doesn't know who it is. One of the final letters sets a face-to-face meeting date on Christmas morning, and Lena is both nervous and excited.

When Lena is finally back home, she's still thinking heavily about the letters but equally as heavy about Zack. Lena has been crushing on him since she was 12, knowing that he was off-limits. But she's a mature adult now and when she thinks she's figured out the connection between the letters and Zack's new found attention to her, she drops her inhibitions and goes with her feelings.

When it's time to see if the letter writer and Zack are one and the same, a tragic event shakes up her entire world.

I absolutely adored this novella. The chemistry between Zack and Lena is low key at best at the beginning, but as the novella progresses there is a definite growing strength of the sparks. Both have grown up believing that they can be nothing more than friends/brother-sisterly, knowing full well that there were other feelings invading their hearts.

"Letters From Home" was a quick little romance reflecting the "best friends little sister" trope. It wasn't exceptionally deep but it was a light and sweet and heartwarming.

Zack and Elena have lived down the street from each other most of their lives with Zack being her brothers best friend. When she starts getting letters during her deployment she realizes she has a secret admirer waiting to meet her. Upon her arrival back home on leave though, Zack starts showing interest she only dared to dream of as a younger woman with a persistent crush on him.

This book had a "You've Got Mail" feel to it without the bitter rivalry/simmering hatred part. It was fairly predictable but at the same time enioyable. Zack was a great guy who cared for Lena and showed it by his loving actions. Lena was an accomplished soldier and doctor who apparently worked hard to achieve her goals. This was more of a tell you it happened kind of story instead of experiencing it with the characters. I think if the author had dug a little bit deeper and let us see some moments between a younger Zack and Lena it would have had a bigger impact. Still, the story was highly enjoyable and romantic. I wanted something light that wouldn't bog me down too deep in emotion and that's exactly what I got. I'm pleased to say Beth Rhodes gave me an enjoyable reading experience that I wouldn't mind revisiting again someday.

I liked the setup, He's her brother's best friend and he sends her secret admirer letters while she's deployed - and now she's back on leave and her admirer wants them to meet. The execution was odd though, the meet up date is a week away and they interact in the mean time and then finally time fof the big reveal and it doesn't go the way we hoped. Then the rest of the HEA is just an epilog, so not enough of them together and not enough build up of emotions. So this is just okay - I love friends to lovers but I needed more. So 3 stars for okay.
