I can't wait to read the next in the series.
(I was given a copy of this book by the author.)
Ps this is Conny. Husbands name is on the account.
What I did like about this book was that it expressed how differently everyone grieves the loss of a loved one. Joanna bottled her emotions up and didn't start to grieve until several years after her mother's death. The interaction with her younger sister also seemed true to life, with her sister anxious for more independence and Joanna unwilling to allow it.
There were some details I found hard to accept. Primarily, it was the lack of a chaperone staying with Joanna and her sister when their father was away. Neither of them was of an age where such would have been acceptable. Also, the author leaned heavily on the use of the word 'very' when more descriptive words could have been used.
I would recommend this to anyone who has dealt with the grieving process and enjoys a clean, Regency read. I was given a free copy in exchange for an honest review. My full review can be found at MoreThanAReview.com where I rate a book's contents.
I just read Healing Hearts (Roselund Heights Book 1) and can't stop smiling. It's a great story by Miranda D Nelson that has the uplifting spirit and pace of a Janette Oke novel and the nostalgia of an Austen tome. The heroine, Joanna, has decided that marriage isn't for her. She spends her days assisting her uncle, the local physician, and managing her sister and father in their daily pursuits (ie she's a control freak). Her neat and orderly world gets thrown into full blown chaos when the handsome new guy moves to town.
Colin, is the hero of the story. He has the brooding good looks of Mr. Darcy and is a talented artist. He basically oozes 19th century perfection. His reasons for moving to Roselund Heights is a mystery and Joanna finds herself hopelessly attracted to him. Both characters are trying to heal in some way and have character flaws to overcome. Neither is perfect, which results in realistic and balanced characters.
The world building and character building was excellent. I felt connected to the characters instantly and the author did a magnificent job at getting me to understand each one's complexities. The technical skill was also well done. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves uplifting and positive reads. It's a clean romance which means nothing more than kissing, so I can safely recommend it for the younger YA crowd and up. I think Janette Oke fans will be quite pleased to stumble upon this series. It's the first book in the series with the others yet to be released. I'm giving it 5 out of 5 stars. It was a great morning read ( I started it at breakfast and finished it before lunch) and I look forward to the continuance of the series.
