Let Me Love You Again (An Echoes of the Heart Novel Book 2)
About the Book:
An endearing series about love, family, and the magic of small-town life.
Selena Rosenthal left behind her high school sweetheart, who was the love of her life, seven years ago.
Now, she and the once-rebellious Oliver Bowman are back in Chandlerville—after his foster father’s heart attack and Selena’s contentious divorce—to deal with her secrets, the recklessness that caused their breakup, and the almost-strangers they’ve become to each other and their families.
As soon as his father is stronger, Oliver must return to the successful career that helps support a new generation of foster kids. But he’s falling for Selena again, her daughter has a hold on his heart, and he can’t imagine leaving behind his brothers and sisters once again.
More attached by the day to their charming hometown and families, Selena and Oliver fall in love for the second time.
Has fate brought Chandlerville’s prodigal children together again…this time forever?
It's a romance novel; of course the prodigal children will come together forever. It's the journey that is the story; not the ending.
I liked both Selena and Oliver and enjoyed watching them grapple with their pasts and move to the future. It turns out that one thing they share is a history of substance abuse. Of course neither feels worthy of the other's love and both have demons they need to confront before they live happily ever after.
Honestly, this is a pretty basic romance novel, and since it is part of a series set in a small town we get to meet a lot of peripheral characters who have little part in the story, but I'm sure many of them will be featured in future books.
I'd like to thank the publisher for making a review copy available via NetGalley. Grade: B
