It’s only been a few months since Meredith Stoltzfus lost her husband, Luke, and deep down, she feels uncomfortable when Jonah Miller comes by often, so willing to help her with things around the house. Meanwhile, as a young, nameless man heals and regains strength in his body, his mind grasps at every image that flits across his memory, desperately trying to recall his former life. . . .

If hope springs eternal, there are real fireworks in the summer.

I’m enjoying The Discovery series by Wanda Brunstetter. The family atmosphere is intriguing and the tight-knit quality of the story is nice. The writing blends well from one scene to the next and I had to know what would happen next.

In this book we get to see more about Luke and his situation. I was glad. I like him as a character and have been hoping for improvement. Yep, I’m emotionally involved. Anne and Susan are refreshing characters and good for him.

The family atmosphere is great in this book, but can lead to confusion. The sheer number of characters and story lines can be hard to piece together. There are a few surprises, too. Totally worth the read.

I liked the development of the storyline between Jonah and Meredith. The second chance is sweet, but I was a little uneasy about how fast she changed her mind. The switch was a bit of a jarring experience. Don’t get me wrong. I like Jonah. There’s a sad, puppy dog quality to him that has me rooting for him to have his HEA. But I’m guarded about how it’s happening. I’ll keep reading. I can’t help but need to know what will happen next.

If you want a sweet read, then this might be the one for you.
