Mitch, a contractor and house-flipper, is restoring a beautiful old house in an idyllic Midwestern neighborhood. Angela, a woman filled with regrets and recently transplanted to his area, is anything but idyllic. She’s almost his worst nightmare, and she s also working on restoring something herself. As he struggles to keep his business afloat and she works to overcome mistakes of her past, these two unlikely friends soon discover they have something unexpected in common, a young mom who is fighting to give her children a better life after her husband’s incarceration.
While both Mitch and Angela are drawn to help this young mother survive, they also find themselves drawn to each other. Will a lifetime of regrets hold them back or unite them and bring redemption along with true love?
"Restoring Love" by Ms. Slattery can write a sweet romance story, but this story is much more than that. This book is about a gal, Bianca who is bitter, proud and needs the Lord more than anything. I love how the author weaves a story of faith while keeping the storyline intact between Angela and Mitch, but utilizing them to bridge a gap that is so necessary for Bianca. I love the character depth, the element of faith, the romance this book offers. It is a great novel that is clean and will have you turning the pages quickly. I read this book in one sitting from start to finish and highly enjoyed this book. It was my first read by Ms. Slattery and I look forward to many more. I give this book 5/5 stars. A positive review was not required and this is my honest opinion.
