Review: Remembering Love by Nadine Christian

When all is lost, how do you remember love?

When her beloved foster parents pass away, Holly discovers a past both shocking and heartbreaking: the murder/suicide of her biological parents on the South Pacific island of Pitcairn, famous for the HMAV Bounty mutineers. Travelling to a home she does not remember, Holly reconnects with long-lost childhood friend Jack. An old friendship quickly becomes more…until a dark secret is uncovered.

Will joyous love remembered become heartbreak? Can she find out the truth before someone else is hurt?

Laura's Review: 
This book was refreshingly unique. Ms. Christian takes a typical childhood friends-to-lovers plotline that's been done a million times, but adds in some twists that make it truly her own. First, is this wonderful setting (that she happens to know quite well - and it shows in the detailed descriptions that make you feel like you are right there on the island with them), and then there is the tragedy of Holly's past that Jack has shared with her, making their bond even stronger. Parts of it felt a bit rushed, and the whole book could use a thorough copy-edit, but overall, I really enjoyed this romantic look at the world of Pitcairn Island.

Remembering Love: 4/5 stars

Note: I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange of an honest review.
