Love, Again by Tamara G. Cooper
About the Book
Book: Love, Again
Author: Tamara G. Cooper
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 11, 2020
Jake Barrett is devastated when he loses his wife and toddler son in a terrible, fiery accident. What made it even more painful is that an unidentified man was found in the car with them. The police suggest that his wife was having an affair. Since that horrible day two years ago, Jake has questioned everything about himself and his marriage and found no answers. He returns home to his family’s Texas ranch to try to find healing there and maybe learn to trust again.
Twice, Honor McKee was engaged to be married, and twice, she was stood up just days before the wedding. Adding to her embarrassment is the fact that she is a marriage counselor, someone who gives advice to others about love and relationships. Ashamed and deeply hurt, she loses faith in herself and her ability to choose a man willing to commit.
Although they are both wounded and disappointed in love, Jake and Honor meet and manage to stumble their way toward friendship and, quite possibly, more. But their lives are turned upside down when trust in each other is needed the most, and neither has it to give.
Will they learn that there is more to life than living in past failures, that it really is possible to find love again?
This is the second book I've had the pleasure to read by this author. This book has fantastic characters who are very realistic and human. I mean that they could be people you know and love, with all their brokenness, and all the "bigness" of their hearts. Jake and Honor have been through a great deal. I loved how they work together and look for answers. I so enjoy the faith aspects. I found their town to be simply amazing with that "older" feeling of small towns that we have loved on film or books for generations. This story was a pleasure to read. I was quite happy with the ending. I found it realistic and yet happy enough.

More from Tamara
When I thought of writing “Love, Again”, I wanted to find out what would happen between two very-hurt people who stumbled into the beginnings of a friendship but didn’t have the trust it took for the relationship to go any further. What would help them see their flaws? What did they need to learn to become more than the past had let them be?
I loved getting to know Jake and Honor. Without giving anything away, I walked with them through their discoveries about themselves and each other. I hope you enjoy their journey!
