Full Circle

When Love Returns by Kim Vogel Sawyer is the final book in The Zimmerman Restoration Trilogy. I was so excited to receive this book for review but sad that the trilogy was coming to a close! I have really enjoyed the stories of Suzanne Zimmerman and her daughter Alexa.

In this installment, Suzanne has come back to Arborville after losing her job in the city. Her daughter Alexa has been running a bed and breakfast in the family home while caring for her grandmother. Suzanne comes back to help and decide what to do next. Of course this is an uncomfortable position for her as Anna Grace is staying in the home until her upcoming wedding. While Alexa was raised by Suzanne, Anna Grace is her daughter that she gave up for adoption. Anna Grace doesn't know Suzanne is her birth mother. Will Suzanne be able to keep her emotions in check while helping the girl plan her wedding?
Anna Grace's father Paul is also always around. Can Suzanne really still feel so much love for him after 20 years apart? Can Paul keep his emotions in check? Maybe Suzanne's mother is right and they won't ever be able to be friends.

Alexa takes a journey of her own back to the city to search for her own birth mother. She is staying with family friends while she conducts her search. Things are bound to get tangled up in emotion as she looks high and low to find out why she was left outside a garage in the cold.

As with all of her books, Sawyer does a beautiful job weaving all these stories together. There is so much going on through this whole novel! It definitely kept me turning the pages as I eagerly waited to see how each situation would work out. I enjoy these gentle fiction stories. They make for guiltless reading. The characters are each unique with their own situation and solution. There are no unturned stones in this story. To get the full story, I'd definitely recommend beginning with book 1 in this trilogy.

I received a free copy of this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
