Heather is the owner of a B & B. She has pulled away from the dating scene & stays remote. She nursed her mother through breast cancer for 3 1/2 years until she lost the battle. Then she was tested & discovered she had the gene & opted for surgery. After the way her fiancee reacted, she let it color her own perception of herself.
Daniel is a writer that rented the entire B & B for the winter so he could have peace & quiet. Daniel has his own secrets & they are starting to weigh heavily on him. After he realizes his request is causing a hardship on his landlady, he reaches out to her.
Will their chemistry prevail? Will their secrets pull them apart? Can Daniel heal Heather? I love the detail that Donna incorporates into her book. There were secrets to reveal & twists & turns enough to keep you involved in the book. The plotline doesn't get bogged down & keeps moving. I loved this & am going to go buy Book 1 of the series while I wait for the third!!
In this second book of Ms. Fasano’s Ocean City Boardwalk series we meet Heather Phillips, the owner and operator of The Lonely Loon Bed and Breakfast. She seems to have her life on track after suffering through a devastating break-up with a fiancé years ago over a decision she made for her own wellbeing. She’s now happy, prosperous, and has good friends she can count on. Her life would be almost perfect if it wasn’t for this cranky author, DB Atwell, who has rented the entire Bed and Breakfast for the whole winter so he can have peace and quiet to finish his next best seller. Heather has been walking on egg shells for over a month now and the quiet is driving her nuts. Heather is a social person who loves getting to know her guests, which is one reason her B&B is such a success, and it is Christmas Eve.
It turns out Daniel is dealing with more than his next novel and he is hiding from the paparazzi. I love the way Ms. Fasano is able to unfold her characters through realistic dialogue, it gives the reader a genuine sense of who they are. Daniel’s story is heartbreaking and gut-wrenching as he tries to navigate international politics while trying keep his sanity. When Heather begins to learn his story a compassion is awakened in her that she thought she had safely buried and she is forced to confront her past decision in a way she never imagined. I was able to feel her emotional turmoil as if it was my own.
The plot moves at a steady pace, but never too slowly, because there is a lot going on. We also get to revisit and learn more about people and events from her earlier works in this series. While it is not necessary to have read the first book of this series, Following His Heart or the related novella, An Almost Perfect Christmas to enjoy these parts of this story, I have to say that you are missing out on a couple of gems if you haven’t read them. Now I am anxious to learn more about Cathy!
I found Two Hearts in Winter a unique, captivating, emotional tale that will keep you thoroughly enthralled until the very end. Don’t miss this one, it will make your heart smile.
As a bonus Ms. Fasano has included the recipes Heather prepared for her International Holiday Dinner party on Christmas Eve at the end of this book for us all to enjoy as well.
FYI: Two Hearts in Winter is Book 2 in the Ocean City Boardwalk series. This book can be read as a standalone story, as is true with other series books by Ms. Fasano. **Originally written for "BigAl’s Books and Pals" book blog. May have received a free review copy.** April 15, 2016
Format/Typo Issues: I found exceptional editing.

It is the winter season. Writer DB “Daniel” Atwell has

Boardwalk series. This book can be read as a stand alone story.
At the end of the story, there are recipes from the Christmas
