Review by Suze
 
Samantha has her future planned, she's going to marry her boyfriend Harris and she'll support him in achieving his political goals. She will move in with him and leave Mirror Lake and everything she loves behind. He's her safe choice and she thinks she's doing the right thing, until Lukas comes back to their hometown. Lukas is now a famous singer who left Sam six years ago without every contacting her again. He was the one who broke her heart and now that he's back she doesn't want him to smash it to pieces once more.
 
Lukas is taking care of his adorable nephew and he's looking for some stability. He wants to adopt the boy and be a responsible parent. Sam is an art teacher and as she's brilliant with kids Lukas could use her help. It will also give them a chance to form a connection again. Their spark might still be there, but will Lukas be willing to commit this time? Once he manages to convince her he's sincere who will Sam choose, him or her almost fianc√© Harris?
 
This Loving Feeling is a wonderful romantic book. I immediately loved Sam and Lukas. They have great chemistry and I loved their conversations. Lukas has a lot of making up to do and Sam is with someone else, so he has to fight for her with everything he has, which is a good foundation for a love story. I immediately liked their connection. They're both talented and creative people and it was fun to read about Lukas's performances and about Sam's art. Lukas is charming and generous and Sam is kind and caring, they both really deserve to be happy.
 
Miranda Liasson's writing has an easy flow and she knows how to tell stories about relationships. She perfectly understands what's going on in people's hearts. I love her descriptions of feelings and the way she explores the emotions of her main characters. Everything she describes feels natural and realistic. There are several interesting twists and turns in the story and I loved the exceptionally sweet ending.
 
Mirror Lake is a fantastic town and I immediately fell in love with the inhabitants. I enjoyed reading about their lives very much. This Loving Feeling is the third part of a series, but it can easily be read as a standalone. Miranda Liasson has made sure the reader won't miss anything important and I love her vivid descriptions of the important locations, she includes them in a clever way by giving them a real part in the story. I also liked the charity work aspect very much, it's a fascinating part of the story with a friendly atmosphere, which gives the book something extra special. I highly recommend this fabulous heartwarming series.
