Unfortunately, most of the time that doesn’t happen. In a moment, we may make a wrong decision and do something, then regret doing it. We let people see an act and not the real us because it hurts too much if they do. They might see all the things we feel are wrong with us. Then we feel like our life is shattering all around our feet. These are some of the issues confronting the main character - Reese.
She has lost so much; can she find hope?
There’s a beautiful quote in the book which Heath says to Reese:
“God can give you beauty again for your ashes – never let go of that truth.”
Remember Me, is a wonderful story of love and hope.
This author wrapped all this story in the wonderful message of God’s love for us, even when we think our past is too bad.
The setting for this book is in my favorite state of Oregon in a coastal town. Which, if you’ve never been, is so stunning!
Marion Ueckermann is a gifted author. She blends together vivid pictures by her words to make all the scenes come to life. So much so, I started believing there really is a Chapel Cove, Oregon. (NOT!)
The characters in this story are written in such a way they are real and believable. I’d love to meet them. Some of the characters I really got a kick reading about. Aunt Ivy is one character whom I’d love to meet. She’s spunky and full of life.
Now I can’t forget to mention this tale also has some swoon-worthy moments. Reese and Heath have a hard time not heating up the scenes too much! But what’s a romance novel without romance?
I will carry this story in my heart and smile when I think of it. I highly recommend you pick it up, also look for the next books in this series. I think we’ll all love this piece of Oregon flair.
I was given this book by the author for an honest review, all opinions are my own.
I like the premise for this series. Three childhood best friends - Reese, Nia, and Kristina - grew up in Chapel Cove. As adults, each has gone their own way and lived their lives. Suddenly at the cusp of their 40th birthday (all within days of each other) they have all found themselves back in Chapel Cove for various reasons. Some would say it's fate, still others would know it's simply God handiwork to complete the plans He has for their lives.
In this book we meet all the main characters from Chapel Cove - Reese, Kristina, and Nia, although this particular book centers around Reese. Reese couldn't wait to get out of Chapel Cove to make it big as a supermodel. But then right before her 40th birthday everything blows up in her face. Reese finds herself back home. No career. No husband. No babies. Just Reese and her finalized divorce papers. Her mom is ready to set her up with the youth pastor from their church. Reese isn't even thinking about men right now though. Her entire world just collapsed and now she feels like nothing will ever go right. That point gets driven home when she accidentally runs into Heath. Sigh. Her teen crush. Her first love. And, boy, is he hot! So hot that Reese realizes maybe she should meet that youth pastor to start dating him. Anything to stop drooling over Heath. Heath is shocked to see Reese because he never stopped loving her. Even if he did never tell her. She disappeared right after the night of their first date to go to New York to become a supermodel. Through circumstances beyond their control Reese and Heath get thrown together for a day. This could be the second chance Heath has always wished for. But is it what God has planned?
Once again I am loving how Marion Ueckermann includes God in her books. I am a huge fan of Christian author's that let their characters show their faith by how they behave & talk. Ms. Ueckermann does a fabulous job of this in all her books, but I really felt it in this one. Despite having a hero that is a Pastor there are no sermons in this book. Yet, I could feel the presence of God throughout the entire book. These are the perfect books to share with my secular friends!!! They don't get turned off because it's a Christian romance. Heck, over half the time they don't even realize it until after they've finished the book.
The next thing that really struck me was the way Marion Ueckermann was given the huge task of starting this series. Not only did she writing this fabulous book, she had to lay the groundwork for the whole series! She introduced readers to the main players, the side characters, the town, and the premise behind the entire project. That's a lot to do in one book! Yet, it was done with such ease and so well. I have a good grasp on the story line concept for the series. I feel like I know Reese, Nia, and Kristina fairly well. (More Reese than the others, but I did just spend a couple few hours with her too so...) I think I am already in love with Chapel Cove. Ready to pack my bags and move there at this point! I love the side characters that I have met so far - Dr. Johnson & Aunt Ivy are such great characters. I also liked Hudson and hope I'll get to meet Hunter as well. I hope they get their own book in the series, after Nia & Kristina of course. I can't wait to meet the other town's people as the series progresses. I think the side characters have the ability to make a book really good, or can sink it. I love all the characters in this series so far.
I also thought it was great that there were references at the end of the story. Scripture references for each Bible verse, from each chapter that has the entire verse(s) that were referenced written out completely. Had I realized this was there before I started reading I probably would've spent less time shuffling between the book and my Bible. NOT that I am complaining mind you. Any excuse to crack open the Good Book. I just thought it was a great idea and a really neat addition. Now I sit here and wonder if she's done this before and I just didn't pay attention. Oh, well regardless - it's a really cool addition that I was happy to find.
I loved this book and look forward to reading the rest of the series!
I was also thrilled about the theme of love coming at 40, since I’m 43... It felt so relatable.
I loved the premise about the three bff’s at age 13 burying their dreams and goals to achieve before they reach 40 in a tin can, only to forget about it years later when their lives take different routes.
This story was wonderful! And very realistic and relatable. Clarisse -Reese- always dreamed of being a model. Heath was lost in love with Reese, and after a fateful valentine date and night of passion, Reese flees Chapel Cove and decides to pursue her dreams away from her home. More than 20 years later, she returns, betrayed, divorced, penniless, and depressed. What has her life come to? She has apparently achieved her dreams of modeling, but her heart feels so empty. Heath has never stopped loving Reese, his hope of Reese’s return vanishes when he learns she married, but his love doesn’t. He becomes a youth pastor and centers his life in God and helping young kids.... So when he sees Reese after so many years, back at Chapel Cove, is this a sing from God, or a torture to his battered heart?
This was a lovely story about searching purpose in your life, learning from your mistakes, and to forgive one self, after letting God’s forgiveness and love embrace us. It’s a story of second chances with a message that God always has a plan for us and that is never to late to love fully and trust God with the direction of your life.
The story’s plot was engaging, the characters relatable yet endearing, deep and compelling, the romance sweet and clean, and now I’m anxiously waiting to read Kristina’s story next!
Definitely a must read! Great start to a series!
