A Beautiful Story About Love That Never Fades!
on November 12, 2015
I am an avid contemporary romance reader and I kept seeing Melanie Shawn's books show up in my list of recommendations. I had never read any of their books (Melanie Shawn is actually two sisters who write these books) but the covers in the Hope Falls series always stood out to me because of the beautiful scenery and the eye-catching, vibrant colors. I was delighted to see that the first book was free so I quickly downloaded it and started reading it.
It didn't take me long to fall in love with the town and characters of Hope Falls. I loved this book! The main character, Amanda Jacobs, has just lost her father. Her closest friends- Lauren, Karina, and Samantha -all put their jobs on hold and come back to their hometown to be with Amanda. Amanda's childhood love interest, Justin Barnes, also returns to Hope Falls, much to her surprise. Amanda and Justin have always been in love with each other but Justin never felt like he was good enough for her and a big misunderstanding causes him to leave Hope Falls without Amanda's knowledge. Amanda was heartbroken when Justin left and is still not over him but she is able to move on from him...sort of.
When Justin and Amanda see each other for the first time after ten years, sparks fly and it's easy to see they still have feelings for each other. Amanda currently has a boyfriend, Trent, who everyone calls Zach Morris from Saved by the Bell and it's obvious to everyone that he is not right for her. Having Justin and her best friends back in town helps Amanda get through saying goodbye to her dad. Justin and Amanda's romance quickly escalates and it is full of passion and beautiful love.
I thought Sweet Reunion was a beautiful love story and it was heartwarming and sweet. This book was a fairly quick read for me and I am eager to read the rest of the books in the Hope Falls series. I highly recommend checking this book out!
