When I picked up “This Loving Feeling” I thought to myself, I hope this a good romance. Well, it was all that and more. I picked a winner!
Miranda Liasson gives readers a little something, something that will leave them with a big smile. After the last page they will be thinking “wow, what a great read”.
During this story I felt engaged. This is the third book in the Mirror Lake series. This book features Samantha (Sam), Lukas and Lukas’ nephew Stevie. Sam and Lukas had been childhood friends, but he had abruptly left town twice with no explanation. Why was this?
We find that Sam is now an art teacher. She thinks she’s got her life on track. She’s dating a senator. Then Lukas comes back into town. Will there be a change in her life? What’s up with the rock star singing a song based on a poem she wrote? What was up with that?
Along with Lukas is his nephew, his brother's child. Adoption is on the mind as the story unfolds. Where will it all lead? Will Sam end up with her senator or will Lukas take her heart and cherish it?
This book will have you turning the pages and loving the characters. I especially liked Effie.
With this being a romance, readers already know where the story is going. Still the journey there is worth reading.
Readers get their sexy, caring hero in Lukas. Plus Sam is spunky and friend worthy.
In the end readers gets one excellent small town romantic story.
Even though this is 3rd in a series it can be read as a standalone.
Samantha Rushford’s future looks bright: the high school art teacher is getting ready to leave Mirror Lake and move to Boston with her ambitious boyfriend, and she hopes a diamond ring is just around the corner. But her past still has a hold on her—especially the bittersweet memory of her rebellious ex, who kissed her passionately before he left town without a word.
Since then, Lukas Spikonos has parlayed his rebel ways into life as an up-and-coming recording artist. When he shows up for a surprise gig at the high school prom, Sam is more dumbstruck than starstruck—he used the words of a poem she wrote about their breakup to create a number one hit. But Lukas hasn’t returned just to impress students; he’s facing some real-life responsibilities and needs Sam’s help. But she has her own unresolved issues about the life she wants to lead. Will the music—and the pull of true love and family—put their hearts back in harmony?
