Love’s Replay is part of Synithia Williams’ Henderson Family series and I thoroughly enjoyed this book. In this installment, second son David Henderson is determined to stop his father from selling the family’s automotive dealership. His father believes David sacrificed a lot and reluctantly stepped into the role after graduation. Now years later his father is trying to sell the business so that David can find happiness. David is trying to convince his father that he wants the business and will do just about anything to stop the sale, even agreeing to getting married and having kids. While David is trying to convince his father, an unexpected surprise shows up at his birthday bash, the love of his life, who David hurt deeply in college and now vows to win her heart.
Sandra Miller’s career has taken her closer to home but paves a direct path to David. She must work with David, who has made his intentions clear, he wants a second chance. Is Sandra willing to risk heartbreak a second time, or will she allow past hurts to interfere and tell David to take a hike. Readers must pick up a copy of Love’s Replay; they will not be disappointed.
I loved the theme of second chance at love, however, this story also touches on forgiveness and realizing one’s true passion. Readers will glimpse David’s turmoil and how he was deeply affected by his past actions when he and Sandra dated during college. Those actions shaped how David celebrated his birthday and always thought of Sandra. Sandra’s character portrayed her as a career driven female that once she encounters David again, discovers her feelings have not changed. She must make a tough decision, forgive and take a chance on David or pursue her career. Of course drama rears its head during this couple’s journey that comes from an unexpected source, but they forge on to reconnect. Old hurts and distrust will arise to test this couple and could possibly destroy the fragile ground they have gained.
This was truly an engaging story that flowed and the dialogue was appropriate for the setting. Readers will be rooting for this couple’s happiness. Overall this was a great read.
