A troubled young mother yearns for a shot at redemption in this heartbreaking yet hopeful story from #1 New York Times bestselling author Colleen Hoover.
After serving five years in prison for a tragic mistake, Kenna Rowan returns to the town where it all went wrong, hoping to reunite with her four-year-old daughter. But the bridges Kenna burned are proving impossible to rebuild. Everyone in her daughter’s life is determined to shut Kenna out, no matter how hard she works to prove herself.
The only person who hasn’t closed the door on her completely is Ledger Ward, a local bar owner and one of the few remaining links to Kenna’s daughter. But if anyone were to discover how Ledger is slowly becoming an important part of Kenna’s life, both would risk losing the trust of everyone important to them.
The two form a connection despite the pressure surrounding them, but as their romance grows, so does the risk. Kenna must find a way to absolve the mistakes of her past in order to build a future out of hope and healing.
An Amazon Best Book of January 2022: Every aspect of Reminders of Him feels heightened because it’s not just a romance novel and it’s not just an angst-filled forgiveness and redemption story. It’s not a heartrending epistolary novel written to a lost love. And it’s not even a what’s-best-for-the-child kitchen sink drama, though that’s how the first three story arcs intersect. It’s an honest-to-God, wet eyelashes, lump-in-throat (twice!), mix of all four. You will laugh, you will cry, you will have a new appreciation for orange F-150 trucks. And, as Kenna struggles, fails, and struggles harder to win back the reputation and the daughter she lost tragically, you will hurt for her and cheer for her. And if the owner of the orange truck is involved somehow, well, I’m not crying, you’re crying.

“Hoover delves deep into grief and guilt to create a multifaceted redemption story for a cast of characters who fight as fiercely as they love. Fans won’t be disappointed.”
“With captivating dialogue, angst-y characters, and a couple of steamy sex scenes, Hoover has done it again.”
“An angsty, emotionally-charged novel about finding forgiveness and redemption for past mistakes, Reminders of Him took Colleen Hoover’s already evocative writing to a whole new level…An intimate, sometimes painfully real, reading experience like no other.”
―Harlequin Junkie, Top Pick
