A cute story about starting over, Sparing the Heart is a sweet story with bowling as the central theme. The main character Katie is trying to come to terms with her father death and she joins a bowling league to help her get out and make some new friends. Katie finds more than she bargained for when she falls for a member of the team, but he is already engaged. The story moves well and the characters are friendly and relatable. This was a fun book - perfect for a summer beach read.

Kate Hayes will absolutely kick my ass in a game of bowling.

But let’s not talk about my bowling skills (nil, if you ask me).

Sparing the Heart is a romance novel that does not really stray far away from the chick lit formula. This is both good and not so good.
It’s good because the story works within the confines of the beloved genre. It has romantic feels, sexual tension, rivalry, drama, and humor. So it works!

The not so good part is that it’s just that. It’s on the safe side.

But I like Kate as a character. She’s flawed but fun and not too self-deprecating, with just a bit of neurotic tendencies. However, her love interest, Kellan, has a personality of a rock. I guess he doesn’t need one if his last name is Valentine. The other guy, Ned, on the other hand, is far more interesting (and their story arc more intriguing).

It’s a good story, nonetheless.

It’s a fun read. I enjoyed it.

Story was just ok, a bit predictable. The errors were too distracting though. The main character was having a conversation with her boss, Linda, but calls her Barb! Other errors like "one fail swoop"! Needs editing, not just a spell checker.

I really loved this book. I could easily identify with Kate. She was alone in a new city and wanted to meet some new people, and I was once in her position. I loved that she put herself out there and she kept her ethical nature while pursuing Kellan. And the romance with Kellan was awesome too. The bowling was fun to read too. I really love this author and her quirky humor. Definitely check this one out!

This is a well written book by Tracy that even though I don't have much time to read, it was easy to start and stop and not have to re-read the previous page or two to start back up again. I enjoyed getting to know the characters as the story progressed. I look forward to reading Tracy's next book, "Dating for Decades"!

Kate Hayes is a dedicated realtor that has recently decided to take up a childhood pastime despite the recent cloud of grief that she’s been walking around in after the loss of her parents. Her therapist suggested she find a non-work related hobby to fill her life with some fun and meaning and Kate decides to take the suggestion and run with it.

Kate decides to spread her wings because the last six months have been filled with nothing but work. With the suggestion of her therapist, she realizes that she needs to expand her horizons and do something more with her life than just be a workaholic. After forcing herself to step out of her comfort zone and try to make new friends, Kate is enjoying the new relationships she’s made and she enjoys rediscovering a passion that she had set aside during her time of grief.

The events that take place in this novel are a mixture of fun, frustrating and downright hilarious! I loved that Kate used adult coloring books to de-stress and I thoroughly enjoyed reading about all of the relationships and friendships that blossomed and progressed throughout the story.

Do I even need to spell it out that l loved this novel?! Sparing the Heart left me with feelings of love and happiness and I can barely tell you how much I loved Kate and Kellan’s story! It was a charming story about love and life and following your own path to make your own destiny. Sometimes you find friendship in the most unexpected places and sometimes love creeps in, no matter how hard you try to fight it.

I’m sad that this is the last novel in the pastime pursuits series, but I’m looking forward to seeing what’s up next from Tracy. Tracy’s writing is top-notch and I can’t wait to see what she whips up next! She definitely threw a strike by writing this novel!

When I first started reading this book I couldn't put it down. I really connected with the main character Kate. It is written in first person which isn't my first choice but it is done well. At some point over half way through the book it seemed to be a bit too cliche and I began to loose interest. I sat it down and came back to it after a week and then took several days to finish because I lost interest. The ending seems to be "buttoned up and beautiful" which was just a bit too happily ever after for me personally and a bit too rushed as there is such a long build up to get to that point, once it's finally there it's over. Not my cup of tea but it's worth a try as everyone has differing options someone else might love it. I did at the start but it trailed off for me.

This book would have been so much better with careful editing. The story has merit and the characters are likable, but vocabulary choice is awkward and grammar, usage and sentence structure need to be cleaned up.
