Second issue: author needs to develop Proof Reading Skills! At the beginning of Chapter 8, Clay is wakened by the sound of Callan's car door. Later in the same chapter, Callan wakes to find Clay gone. Okay, Ms. Author--you can't have it both ways. Learn to proof you work.
Hoping I can finish this book. Difficult when main character is described so often as having legs that go on forever. Really! A good writer does not use cliches--and a really good author never repeats cliches.
A lot of work went into this story. Too bad she didn't do more.
I liked it because it was a sweet, clean story. There was a logical flow of events and I mostly liked both Hero & heroine.
The main reason I probably won't be reading more from this author is that I did not care for her writing style. While it is in no way a juvenile story, I prefer more details and descriptions. I felt in parts that it was not doing enough to hook me and pull me in. Too many chapters were spent on a hospital ordeal that went on way too long. The heroine seemed not quite real in that she seemed to have some childhood baggage that was enough to cause marriage problems; yet those problems seem to dissipate after a few good talks with friends and spouse.
I liked all of the romantic situations between husband and wife, I just prefer more than skeleton paragraphs for details.
I found the author's over-use of the physical descriptions of both the hero and heroine finally tiring and unnecessary.
Without delving into spoilers I found it rather a stretch that the heroine hid one of the most traumatic events in her life from her husband especially since it intimately involved them both! (This same event occurred in our own married life and I personally cannot imagine sharing and supporting my spouse)
I skimmed much of the latter part of the book because it seemingly contained a lot of what I would describe as 'fluff' that did not add a great deal to the story line.
The ending to the story was also suspect in that the hero secretly planned an extravagant event right under the nose of his wife without her being aware of it, especially since she was in the event-planning profession herself. It undermined the previously intelligent, savvy and highly aware personality of the heroine making her seem suddenly clueless and naïve.
Finally, I kept anticipating a child for them which never materialized, a final disappointment.
After all of this, the author is STILL one of my favorite contemporary authors. In light of the fact that Heart of Clay has received multiple 5 star reviews makes it a desirable read. Simply because it did not mesh with my peculiar sensibilities does not make it a bad read.
