Thoughts: Wow, talk about hard to put down. There are so many twists and turns in this story that just keep you glued to the page. The shock at the end, wow, there were so many secrets that came to light and I wasn’t even close to figuring it out. It definitely reminds you that you really don’t know someone and what they are capable of doing. Elle seemed so real, the living in a bubble yet knowing why but still taking risks like any normal teenager. It was almost hard to believe that it was fiction. I will definitely be checking out more books by this author.
Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work and chose to write a review.
In an Oyster Shell - A book with great suspense and a supernatural storyline that is slightly subtle.
The Pearls - I liked the concept of the story that's why I chose to read it. I was not disappointed. Having a girl be connected paranormally to her heart donor was interesting and well executed.
The characters were distinct and well developed. Elle was a good character to empathize with. She was also very smart and figured out what was going on. I liked her neighbor who also turned into a love interest. The supporting characters were well-defined and added depth to the story.
I liked the mystery that I found in the story. I was reading it more for the paranormal aspect but it had an intriguing plot line.
I enjoyed this cute paranormal teen drama - It's got romance, intrigue and a bucket load of YA drama.
I have to admit I wasn't initially sure about the concept because it's a very sensitive subject for me. I lost a close friend a while ago only a few years after she received a heart transplant. I wasn't sure how I'd feel reading about a young girl with similar problems. The paranormal and mystery elements helped balance out the emotional drama and I'm pretty sure my friend would have enjoyed reading it herself if she could.
Elle lives a very strained and unusual existence. Pre-transplant everything is about surviving until a donor heart can be found, then after the surgery her entire life changes again. Elle's new heart comes with a whole load of drama and mysterious new abilities.
For the most part I liked Elle and empathised with her struggle. I did find her indecisiveness with potential romances a little irritating at times but I suppose given her circumstances its not something she has any experience with. I appreciated her determined search for the truth and the stellar way she adapts to her new abilities, the only slight negative is that she is a little immature at times.
Rob made me smile and I liked their friendship. I'm still not sure what to think about her doctor or a certain yoga teacher, but their behaviour made a weird sort of sense considering what happens.
The combination of paranormal and mystery works and although the subject is pretty heavy it never felt too draining or OTT.

The Divine Heart is a rare mix of YA paranormal and thriller with a striking plot and a never ending air of tension and mystery. Once you started it, you aim to finish the book right away. Even the title and the cover illustration is deliciously enigmatic calling for a riddle. A refreshing read for those who watched and loved Melinda Gordon of The Ghost Whisperer.
***Thank you to Danielle R. Mani for providing me a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review!
