My 2nd Review of Remembering Zane by J.S. Wilsoncroft

Title: Remembering Zane

Author: J.S. Wilsoncroft

Source: NEW revised ebook for review from author

At ten years old, Bonnie Reese knew the minute she laid eyes on Zane Withers that he would forever have a place in her heart. After years of dating, then finally going their separate ways, Bonnie always dreamed that eventually they would find their way back back to each other.
But those dreams were shattered, along with her heart, when she received the devastating news that her beloved Zane had been killed. As she faced her worst nightmare of going to his funeral, Bonnie runs into Zane’s best friend, Jonathan Wood. Little did she know, Jonathan had deep feelings for her since the seventh grade. Now that his best friend is gone, will Jonathan have the courage to tell her that he’s loved her since high school? Or will he keep his secret to himself forever? Will Bonnie let go and let love find her again?

My 2nd take...
Wilsoncroft got picked up by Write More Publications and they did a reprint of Remembering Zane. Gave it a beautiful new cover and even a couple new chapters were added as well. Being a HUGE fan of Wilsoncroft I jumped at the chance to review it again. To see my first review go HERE.

I thought the first time I read Remembering Zane it was great. But here I am finishing up with it a 2nd time and all of it's added chapter glory, and I think it's even better. I loved how the author gave us more of their relationship...a wedding...babies. Ok, ok, will stop there. You get the gist...it's just so, so good not to rattle on about. 

I also want to mention that the first time I read Remembering Zane was right after losing my father. So the opening scene was a bit rough on me. The feelings the author wrote were spot on and and brought on some strong emotions. Now it's been a bit longer and the emotions are still there. This only shows this lady knows how to write the scenes that come alive and affect a reader. Kudos!

In my first review I think the only problem I had with the book was it was a short story. But dreams do come true! With the added chapters it still is shorter than most books, but I was in heaven since I was able to get more of these great characters. Jon is just a wonderful, wonderful man that I adore dearly. Such a great character for the book. And I was glad I was able to read more about him. 

The great thing about Wilsoncroft's books is they target everyday people. With each of her books you get something new and different...not the same old-same old you read all the time. So do me a favor and check out her books over on goodreads then pick one up today to read.
