Review of Love Remains by Zrinka Jelic


Olivia Owen, a busy, single, high-functioning, corporate executive officer, is not afraid to die a spinster for the sake of her career. But in an alternate reality world, bridged by the angel of her sister with Down syndrome, she meets Tom Medar, a dedicated, Croatian defense attorney who dreams of the right woman, but never has time to find her. Together, they foil an adulterous murder plot while discovering there’s room for love and family in their busy lives - but not before they are separated again.

When they awaken from their alternate world, will they be able to cross countries to find each other again?


4.5 stars

The beginning of the story seemed a bit slow for me but as I read it, it became more interesting I had to read it in one sitting.

Olivia is a cold and career woman who doesn't believe in love, has no friends, and accepts her faith of being a spinster. One day it all changes as she took a nap and suddenly wakes up in alternate life. Instead of being a career woman, she finds herself to be a loving wife, a mother, and more friendly to other people. This twisted her up in knots especially when her husband is Tom, a Croatian defense attorney. She finds it difficult to accept herself now, because it's far too different from who she really is but as she tries to cope in her current situation, she feels something different for the first time and wonders when it will all end and she'll back to her old lonely life. But the story does not stop there when Olivia found the reason of her alternate life.

This book just blown me away. At first it might seem nothing but eventually it will get you hooked for more. At first, I really hated Olivia's character but because she experienced living her alternate she changes and I totally love her then. I really felt for Tom and you can really understand why she felt for him. I definitely enjoyed the family scenes, I can really feel the love. The twist of the story was something else t but the ending definitely left me wanting for more.
