Jim has also felt an attraction for the strange woman he met at the grocery, although he can’t figure out why. She isn’t anything like the ideal woman he has logically selected in an itemized list of attributes. When they recognize each other, they begin to date.
But this isn’t a typical romance. Jim isn’t ready to commit, and starts dating another woman, Donna, on the side. Donna fits his list of attributes more than Rachel does, and he goes back and forth between the two. It isn’t a love triangle so much as a case of indecision, being torn between logic and emotion, and not knowing what it is that he really wants.
The book is only six chapters long, making it a pleasant four-hour read. The love scenes are limited to kisses, and the attraction is based more on friendship than physique. It doesn’t follow the usual plot development for a romance novel. Actually, it’s more in keeping with “Bridges Over Madison County”. It’s about making up your mind, exploring what is in your heart, and learning to accept people just the way they are, faults and all.
After their brief meeting, the couple is brought together by her son's soccer team. Jim finally meets Rachel when he brings her son, Scott, home with an injury.
Jim isn't ready for a ready-made family and she's afraid he's just another in a series of less than worthy men she seems to encounter.
Jim and Rachel are attracted to each other but there are other people in their lives. Jim dates Donna, another seemingly perfect soccer mom, but all the while thinks of the ditzy unorganized Rachel. She doesn't fit the bill of a perfect woman. Rachel is overweight, isn't efficient and klutzy but she's a great mom and she does get things done but her mouth - runs constantly. To say the least she's head strong.
Rachel is dating the soccer coach but it isn't the relationship she wants and she thinks of Jim constantly, tall, dark, handsome but noncommittal.
Through a series of misunderstandings and with a little help from Rachel's sister, Sharon, the couple work toward an understanding of what they really want in life is each other.
Ms. McCune's witty way with words makes this a delightful story. Jim and Rachel's attempts to see each other again at the supermarket and the misunderstood text messages are the highlight of the story. Kudos, Bonnie.
And just as it is in the real world, Jim isn't sure about Rachel--who, among other things is impulsive, and certainly not perfect. So Jim dates another woman who is flawless, but he constantly compares the two women. He even makes up a list of each woman's attributes. It reminded me of the time my husband and I were buying a house. We made lists of what we wanted and what each house featured. However, Jim is dealing with women--and to me it was a bit funny that he thought he could be so objective by using that list.
It's a short tale, but I recommend it. It will give you a cozy feeling inside and maybe like me you'll nod your head. Yes, that's the way it is.
Jim is not ready to settle down, but when he sees Rachel at a grocery store he can’t get her out of his mind. He is so captivated with her that he goes back to the same store several times hoping to run into her. He had given up hope of ever seeing her again when he finally finds her. He is delighted, until things start getting a little too serious way too fast. He begins to wonder if Rachel really is the one, especially when a seemingly perfect woman crosses his path. Will Jim find love with the woman of his dreams or will he choose Rachel with all her little quirks?
Heart-Strong was a cute and sweet romance. Jim and Rachel are believable characters with flaws and all. This was a fun, quick read. I enjoyed spending a rainy evening getting to know them.
