Review: Love Letters by Geraldine Solon

First line: As Chloe Rogers put her car in reverse, she couldn’t stop looking at her princess-cut diamond.

Synopsis from Amazon: Bridal shop manager Chloe Rogers will soon marry Richard Foster—so she thinks—until suddenly, she bumps into her childhood sweetheart, Josh Goldman, whom she hasn’t seen in thirteen years. The sparks between Chloe and Josh fly, but Richard provides safety, financial security. Should she follow her heart or her head? The answer comes in a surprise twist. While cleaning her attic, she stumbles upon love letters written to her estranged mother forty years ago from a man she loved. When Chloe secretly brings them together again and sees how much time they’ve lost, she is challenged not to make the same mistake her mother made. Will Chloe opt for security or will she risk her heart and marry her true love?


My thoughts: This was the perfect book to read leading up to Valentines Day! It was a fun, quick read that really makes you think about the decisions you make when it comes to love. It's about second chances presenting themselves and having to decide if it's worth risking your heart to take it. This story reminded me of my husband and I. Like Chloe and Josh, we met while in school, in the 8th grade. We became friends and even though he wanted to date and I didn't, we remained the best of friends until high school graduation, where we each went our separate ways. Fast forward fourteen years and we reconnect, start dating, and end up getting married. For Chloe and Josh, it's a little different. When they reconnect, Chloe was already engaged to another man - a man completely different from Josh. As she struggles with what to do, she comes across a box of love letters addressed to her mom - not from her father but from another man. Trying to figure out what happened, Chloe does some digging and then ends up bringing her estranged mother together with her long-lost love. It's during this time that she realizes what she needs to do. Filled with romance, humor, and some heartbreak, this is a great love story that really hit close to home for me. I look forward to reading more from this author.
