True love is harder than it looks!

From the Inside Flap

Becky Callis was new in town, and she felt her intrusion.


A bearded man outside the hardware store stopped sweeping, broom held in mid-air and watched them narrowly as they drove past, perhaps wondering if she were the type to plunder and loot his shop.

A couple of older women that had been chatting outside a tiny florist shop suddenly turned to stone, their mouths gaping open, snickering about what kind of woman would be caught dead in such an old pick-up truck. Becky even imagined one of their tongues hung out. She repressed a giggle and waved, receiving an incredulous half-wave from one of the women, and no acknowledgement from the others.

She hated being stared at, and tried to keep a somewhat pleasant smile pasted on her freckled face as she drove through. She could feel her fair skin literally burning with embarrassment. Her thirteen year old daughter, Jen, gave her a twisted frown.

"Mom, what is wrong with these people?" Her pixie face turned dark red as a teenage boy waved at her. "They act like they've never seen strangers before."

Becky's grin grew larger and more realistic as she gave a two-finger salute to the policeman leaning on his squad car with arms crossed as if daring her to go faster than the posted thirty mile an hour sign. Obediently, she stopped at the one red light the town could boast of and waited for it to turn green.

"I guess," she said with a shrug, watching an old man sitting outside a diner pretend to read a newspaper. He spit tobacco juice into a jar and set it down next to his chair, his bushy eyebrows making it very clear he was looking at them."They don't get too many newcomers here." Jen grimaced and pushed her sleeping brother's head off her shoulder onto the vinyl headrest instead.

"Well that's fine, but they don't have to stare. Makes me feel like we're pets in a pet shop."

"Or beef at a cattle auction." Becky laughed at her discomfort, noticing that the green light flickered faintly before going completely out.

The story of Becky Callis who moves to a new town with her 2 children several years after her husband passed away. She is not looking for love, but it is looking for her. The mystery of who, out of three gentlemen, she may choose makes the story hard to put down in the beginning. As the story weaves it becomes even more difficult to put down, making me read it all in one day! She finally sees that one man is who she loves but there become many obstacles standing in their way.

Amanda Stephan's story intrigues, excites and delights! The mystery keeps the reader going on, and the characters keep our interest because they are so genuine. We see the very human side of a man trying to do God's will but getting mixed up about how to go about it, and finding the fine line between helping people and being a doormat. The supporting characters are even amazing, especially Curly. This story was easy to get lost in, and I sure did. I read Amanda Stephan's first book, The Price of Trust, hoping this one would be as good and it didn't disappoint! I can't wait to read more of Amanda's work. Definitely will be recommending Lonely Hearts, and the author, to all of my friends.

One lonely mother. Two matchmaking kids. Three eligible bachelors and some very yummy apple pie...

Becky Callis is the widowed mother of two, trying to make ends meet. Moving to a new town, things get a little complicated when her mischievous children think she's been lonely far too long and try to take romantic matters into their own hands.

Scott Boone seems to be everything their mother could like. Handsome and friendly, Scott makes his interest in Becky clear ~ even though she's older. Is he the handsome, debonair cowboy Becky needs, or just a rake looking for another notch in his belt?

Jack Anderson and Becky have been friends since childhood. When they're reunited years after their lives have taken very different paths, this lonely preacher begins to wonder if God has brought her back into his life for a reason.

Pearce Morgan is a single parent raising his young daughter. Divorced and disillusioned, an unlikely friendship arises between him and Becky when his shy daughter decides she loves Becky and her kids.

True love is more complicated than it looks.
*Exclusive Apple Pie Recipe Included!* (excerpt from Books by Amanda)

I had previously read a book by Amanda Stephan called "The Price of Trust" (Review here) and absolutely loved it! Amanda has a way of writing that draws the reader into the story and makes you not want to put the book down. After reading and reviewing that book, Amanda and I quickly became friends, even though we have never met in person. She is such an encouragement in my life and I am blessed to call her friend. So when I found out her next book, "Lonely Hearts" was coming out, I was ecstatic! I knew it would be yet another great read. And I was so right!

SPOILER ALERT!!!

Becky Callis is a lonely widow with two kids that she's been raising on her own. The kids know their mom is lonely and try to match her up with some worthy candidates. After moving to a new town she first meets Scott Boone whose easy-going manner and handsome looks make him easy to like. Then when Becky and the kids visit a new church in town they find out Jack is the pastor. Becky has known Jack all her life and they have an easy rapport together. Then there's Pearce Morgan. The handsome, stand-offish rancher who is raising a daughter on his own after his wife divorced him. His shy daughter, Emily, seems to have taken to Becky and her kids. Only one will win her heart but which one will it be?

I LOVED this story. From beginning to end it kept me totally enthralled and wondering how it would all work out. Loaded with zippy dialog and great characters made for a fun and very satisfying tale. I really enjoyed Becky. She was a very relateable character. I liked the way she handled the situations that arose and found myself thinking I wish I was more like her in some ways. You will enjoy getting to know all the bachelors as you wonder, like her kids, who is the best fit for their mom. The kids will win your heart as they do their best to see their mom is happy. I must say I loved Curly. He's a wise old ranch hand you'll get to know as well. This story took me through a gamut of emotions. I felt happy, sad, excited, angry, and frustrated. You know a story is good when it has that effect. The theme running though our story is 'things may not always be as they appear'. It's a great reminder that man looks on the outside but God looks on the heart. If you enjoy an easy-to-read, fun and entertaining story with a great message I highly recommend Lonely Hearts. It really would make a great Hallmark movie. Looking forward to more by Amanda Stephan. A thank you goes to the author for providing this complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.

Becky moves her and her two kids to a new town to try and move on after her husband dies. Immediately, a farm hand Scott starts to make his move on Becky. Then there is Jack,who has been friends with Becky since childhood. When they find out they now live in the same town and where Jack is the preacher there, he feels God has put them back together for a reason. Pearce Morgan is the boss of a large ranch, alone, raising his young child after his ex-wife left both of them. Becky's children don't know what man to match their mother up with. Three men trying to win the heart of one woman, throwing in an ex-wife that suddenly appears only means trouble and heartache. This is a beautiful Christian romance story. Becky is a strong woman, trying to start her life over after her soul mate is gone, and raising two children. I loved this book. I can't wait to read more.
