Publisher's Summary

After the tragic death of her fiancé, Grace McConnell turns to the only remaining constant in her life, her work. So when she's offered the lead position for an international restoration project, she jumps at the chance to get away from her small town, full of John's memories.
Drew Tensley has always been a hard worker. Dedicated to his family and community, he put aside his own London career to take over the family business after his mother's terminal diagnosis. Five years later, he's ready to start living for himself when he literally runs into his hometown's newest architect.
Grace quickly discovers that traveling halfway across the world was the best decision she's ever made...until she meets Drew, a man whose personality and lifestyle are the exact opposite of John's, but whose face is the spitting image. Struggling with her own motivations and feelings, research uncovers secrets she isn't ready for; secrets that could ruin her second chance for true love.

This is a wonderful book

Grace was devastated when she lost her love of five years. John was a firefighter and lost his life on the job. Their love didn’t dissolve, there was no deceit, no reason for it to not continue on with marriage and children. It was ripped from her, her future with him stolen.

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.

What a wonderful book!

I loved this book! It was written by an author whom was new to me. The descriptions and character development were excellent. One could feel the emotions Grace and Drew felt. I enjoyed the fact that this story was not "insta-love" but developed over time. Yes, there was heartaches, but also happiness. The narrator did a great performance as well. I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, narrator and/or publisher. I cannot wait for the next book in this series.
