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.

Super Sweet Romance

Restoration is about an American woman that goes to England to hide from a broken heart. She not only finds love but a whole bunch of complications. I really enjoyed the narrator Sophie King.

Different kind of love story!

--I received a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

When first beginning this book, I thought it was going to be a long, boring listen. I was wrong. 15 minutes in, and I was hooked. The storyline was more than real and captivating. Grace McConnell goes to England to try and rebuild her life after losing her longtime boyfriend to tragedy. Little does she know, there is a man in the town she settles that is an exact look alike to him. The attraction is immediate and over time, she overcomes her infatuation with the fact that he looks like her old boyfriend, and Grace falls in love with Drew. There are many complications, real life situations(like Drew's mother's illness) and heartbreaks that keep you enthralled with finding out the result of this relationship. Can they overcome all the problems? You will have to read the book to find out!

Sophie King is an amazing narrator and gives a wonderful performance of this book. I especially loved her voice for Drew...totally fell in love with his character and I can say it was her warmth in his voice that brought it out.

Kim Loraine does it again

The narrator was excellent. the story was as well. I loved the fact that there were many points that kept you on your toes. You, as the reader, also felt some of the emotions. I especially liked the fact that they didn't just jump in the the sack the first time they met.

Can One Fall for a Deceased Loves Doppelganger?

Any additional comments?

I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review. This author and narrator are new to me and I enjoyed them very much. The writing pulled me in and the narrator kept me engaged. I am looking forward to listening to more in this series thanks to the authors ability to hook my interest in her characters and the stories they have to tell. I want more and have added the entire series to my goodreads TBR list. This was a very interesting take on a classic romance trope and I loved seeing how it all turned out.
