This story just hooked me from the beginning. It is now 2:15 in the morning and I just finished. I could not put it down. I thought the story line was interesting and had a lot of emotions running all through it. A young woman, 33, lost the love of her life in a fire, he died a hero as he was a firefighter and was doing a job he loved. He saved others, but he left her. She was devastated and depressed. When her company offered her the position of restoring a very old home in a small village outside of London, she jumped at the chance. She felt like a complete change would be the start of a new life and moving on. Waiting for her luggage to come off the plane she looks across at baggage claim and she sees her dead fiancé. She thinks she is going crazy. Then, buying groceries in her small village she sees the same man again. She really thinks she is losing her mind.
The story gets good as she meets him and realizes that he does look exactly like her dead fiancé. She is not sure what to do. However, he is very attracted to her and they start to see each other. Her assistant turns out to be her best friend and she tries to encourage the heroine to get on with her life.
There is good character development as these two start to see each other. It gets complicated as she compares him to John at every turn. The hero knows she had a fiancé and he passed, he just doesn't know that the looked exactly alike. The story takes a twist as they take a trip to Scotland together and more of his past comes out. She is starting to believe there is more than just a coincidence at work. This is a full length novel. It is a love story but there is a lot more to it. Twist and turns, ups and downs, it is quite entertaining. I'm not sure how anyone could say this was predictable. I wonder if they read the whole book!! It is a really good read as all this gets sorted out. I definitely recommend it. Great read. I loved it.
I was not paid for this review. I am not an author nor do I know one. I am not kin to this writer. I am a reader and this is my opinion, nothing more, nothing less.
Grace McConnell had to get away after death of her fiancee firefighter John, and a restoration project in Brayle, England seems to be just the project for her as an architect. But the town came with a surprise... Andrew "Drew" Tensley, who looked so much like John, Grace was sure she was suffering a mental breakdown. But Drew was real... He was on his way of becoming a solicitor (a lawyer to you Yanks) when he gave it all up to go back home and run the family Ten's Market in Brayle when he learned that his adopted mother has terminal cancer. His wife Sarah left him, berating him for throwing his future (technically, her future as a socialite) away. So he divorced her. It's been five years, and he had not regretted his decision. And the new architect in town, Grace, who literally ran into him in the market, fascinated him. And Grace is torn... Drew is the twin of John, that she's sure, but the personalities are vastly different, and in fact, Drew is a much better fit to Grace. But Grace hadn't told him about his twin brother... And which one was she really in love with?
The plot and serendipity were excellent without making it cliche. While "lost twin of a dead lover" was so... melo-dramatic and worthy of a soap opera, the author managed to make it work and the romance is fine.
Drew’s life used to be about money and prestige. He was a lawyer in London, working hard and living the life, married to Susan-a gorgeous bombshell. Well, that is until he walked in one day and found her “occupied” with one of his co-workers. That life, along with his marriage ended. That moment not only broke his heart, it destroyed him.
After moving across the globe to head up a restoration project, Grace comes face to face with Drew, a man who looks identical to John. The more time they spend together, the more her suspicions and feelings grow. Does she feel this way because he looks like John? He may look the same, but he is so different. As she uncovers secrets of the past, she is torn on what they will do to their growing relationship. Will he, or even-does she, trust in her feelings.
This is a wonderful book, one that is more than just the typical contemporary romance. This is a book about loss and grief, of truths and acceptance, of letting go and moving forward, of growth and loving again. Kim Loraine does an excellent job giving us an emotion, hopeful, and heartwarming tale. The book is well-written with great character development. The main theme was a little predictable, but there are twists and turns that kept it refreshing and unexpected. There is great detail, without going overboard, that paint a beautiful picture.
I am looking forward to more and can’t wait to get started on the next book, which is Valerie’s story.
