Full Circle by Mona Ingram

amazon barnes & noble Goodreads
Bella Thompson has news: she’s pregnant. But before she can tell her boyfriend Jeffrey, he shatters her with the news that he’s going to marry someone else. The textile mill, owned by Jeffrey’s father, is the town’s main employer, but textile mills all over the country are losing market share and Lambert Textiles is no exception.

Bella is given a choice: Go to Atlanta and give up her child for adoption or leave town and raise her child on her own. The choice is clear, and she travels to California where she settles in Santa Monica.

Determined to make her own way in the world and return to Willow Bend on her own terms, Bella puts all her energies into building a successful business with her partner Rafael Vargas. But at what cost?

Follow Bella as she struggles to balance her passion for business with the ultimate prize… love.

Hott Review:

Honestly? I picked Mona Ingram’s Full Circle up when it was free years ago and promptly forgot about it. Then recently it was free again and I added it to my schedule. Why? I’m not sure. The cover is cute, but not something I’d typically go for. The synopsis is ok, but, again, very low-key. On the surface, it felt like an Indie book and I don’t love those. At all.

But as soon as I picked up Full Circle I loved it. I could not put it down. It was so easy to feel like I was experiencing life as Bella and to just fly through the years, the secrets, the fear, and the love. Most of all, the love. Especially, the friendships. I was so jealous of Bella’s relationships. Her relaxed easy way.

Full Circle isn’t a sweeping contemporary romance. It’s a slow sweet endearing – and clean! – romance. Watching their love build from the outside and falling in love with Full Circle is a great way to spend a lazy afternoon!

I loved Full Circle and will be grabbing more from Mona Ingram as soon as I can!
