Surprised by Love by Julie Lessman

About the Book

Goodreads | Amazon
She can turn the head of the man who spurned her - but can she turn his heart?

When Megan McClare left San Francisco to study in Paris, no one would accuse her of being poised and pretty. But on the other side of the Atlantic, this wallflower blossomed into a beauty with big dreams. When she returns to California and accepts an internship at the district attorney's office, she's thrilled that her life is taking shape. But the exciting opportunity quickly loses its glow when she discovers she'll be working alongside Devin Caldwell, who mercilessly mocked her at school – and with whom she was hopelessly enamored.

Bram Hughes is the best friend to whom Megan has always turned for support and advice. But when she seeks his counsel about working with Devin Caldwell, Bram's vision is clouded by his sudden unwelcome attraction to a girl he had always thought of as a little sister. He advises forgiveness, but can he forgive himself for pushing the woman he loves into the arms of another man? 

Author Julie Lessman draws a romantic triangle that will touch your heart in this glittering Gilded Age tale of transforming love.

I absolutely love family sagas, so revisiting the McClare family in San Francisco in Julie Lessman’s Surprised by Love was a real treat. And even though I haven’t yet had the chance to read Dare to Love Again, I thoroughly enjoyed and understood this third Heart of San Francisco story. Overall, Surprised by Love is a sweet story with great insight into previously secondary characters, Meg McClare and Bram Hughes, as well as peeks into the happenings in the lives of other family members. It has plenty of Lessman’s usual heartwarming romance and purposeful characters and circumstances. I think any fan of historical romance will want to take the time to read this latest novel by Julie Lessman. It certainly made me eager to go back and read Dare to Love Again.

Thanks to Revell Reads, I received a copy of Surprised by Love and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
