Some soulmates can never be forgotten

Jordan has been in love with her best friend Sophie since high school, but no one knows, least of all Sophie. But when her secret love makes her a family disappointment, she leaves the butterfly obsessed town Monarch behind and starts a new life in LA. 

Ten years later, Jordan owns a successful soulmate matchmaking company. She finds love for others but has lottle use of it in her own life. Sophie runs the Monarch Butterfly Sactuary and has yet to forgive Jordan for disappearing without any trace from her life. But a meddling grandmother forces Jordan to return to Monarch. Will the soulmates reunite in this lifetime or will differing goals tear them apart once again? 


To be honest, the only beautiful thing about this plot is the Monarch butterflies and how they have been given an individual characterization. The plot is sweet and simple and narrated beautifully, but there’s nothing memorable about it that will make me want to re-read this book. The two lead characters, Sophie and Jordan have been beautifully sketched, but it is Sophie that holds the attention more and makes a greater impression in the minds of the readers. The title and the cover image definitely suits the plotline, though considering the genre, I expected it to be more feminine than what it is currently. 

My opinion: The book is pretty sweet and inviting and is good for one-time quick read. 

My rating: 3 out of 5
