Jennifer is an independent woman, although she is also a bit shy. Matt is a gentleman, athletic, sweet, and attractive. They met in their youth and the chemistry between them was instantaneous. They liked to joke and enjoy their time together. Their paths diverged as a result of a misunderstanding. After several years, Matt found a way to contact Jennifer, thanks to social media networks. He took the opportunity to send her an apology. At first, she didn't remember what happened but was excited at the prospect of seeing him again. The love between them had endured. First, they needed to transcend their past if they wanted to have a bright future together. What Love Can Do by Katharine Hope Levy is a charming story that examines the relationship between love and honesty.

I loved the chemistry between Jennifer and Matt because their romance was captivating. I thought Katharine Hope Levy's narrative was fantastic. The romantic scenes were well described, so you feel how much Jennifer and Matt enjoyed their time together. They took advantage of every opportunity and learned to express their feelings without fear, whether they were going to a party, on a date, or at Matt's house. The first part of the story was about how they met, while the rest is set in the present. I liked that separation because you can see how they had matured in the interim. I also loved how Jennifer and Matt were when they remembered moments together or gave each other gifts. Both characters are charming. What Love Can Do is a reminder that love can overcome the past and is the ideal book for anyone looking for a realistic story.

What Love Can Do by Katharine Hope Levy follows the tale of Jennifer Bantam and Matt Conroy, who after twenty years of lost time have once again reconnected and start to rekindle a romance. Jennifer is back home in Shelby Falls to help pack up her parents' things as they prepare to move out of her childhood home. She randomly receives a message from Matt via social media apologizing for what transpired twenty years ago, only Jennifer has no idea what he’s talking about. Will she remember and when she does will she forgive him?

What Love Can Do by Katharine Hope Levy is a sweet and lovely story centered around two individuals who reconnect as they are turning 40, and experience a second chance at love. We see what transpired between them twenty years prior leading up to the present time. Levy did such a wonderful job with this story, both with the pacing and the characters. The main characters are charming in their own ways and the love that begins to blossom between them just gave me a warm fuzzy feeling inside. What Love Can Do is really one of those books you should curl up with and read while sipping on a hot cup of coffee. I really enjoyed seeing the younger versions of the characters and how much they changed over the past twenty years. You see how they both have matured and grown in the way they act and communicate with one another. This is just a beautifully written story and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
