A couple of pages in, and I couldn't really find any interest in the story or the characters. They felt one-dimensional. And the writing style didn't really grip me in any way.

Big thanks to Booksparks for sending me this book as part of their FRC2017 program!
Honestly, the description sounds a little like a soap opera...and at times, the book felt eerily similar to one. Or maybe I've read too many books recently with people grieving, but I don't think that's my issue with this book really. I've been racking my brain to figure out why I didn't connect with it, and I'll try to work my way through tha

Love Reconsidered is a must-read! It is obvious the author puts a little of her soul into every story she writes. Otherwise, the characters wouldn’t tug at the reader’s heart so. When a novel grabs me and carries me through every emotion, even on multiple reads, I know it’s a good one. After tragedy befalls them, these characters literally have to reexamine their lives and reconsider what love is to them in their new reality. There is at least one character we can all relate to in some way, and ...more

Love Reconsidered is a wonderful story of love lost, love found, and the healing that's possible when the heart looks past grief and betrayal. The story is moving and well told. You'll be glad you read this book!
