The Heart Remembers

The Heart RemembersIrene Hannon
Contemporary Romance

"Allison, Aunt Maggie's love life is an emergency."




Weeks before her wedding, Maggie's life is changed forever.  Her sister and brother-in-law have died, leaving her to be the only family left to six-year-old twins.  At twenty-four this was not what she had planned for her life.  Nor did she plan for her fiancĂ©e to give up and walk away, leaving her to deal with it alone.  But deal with it she did, for twelve years.  Now, Jake has walked back into her life.  As they see each other more and more, the sparks seem to still fly.  But is that enough?  Can Maggie learn to trust Jake again?  She must decide if love is worth it in the end.

My Opinion: I must say, the premise of this book was hard for me.  I'm not sure that I would have been able to forgive a man for doing that to me.  So, it was hard for me to relate.  The saving grace of this story and what made it real and believable and understandable was Millicent Trent.  Her insights and side commentary helped me to really understand the idea of being able to forgive such a big thing.  The story itself, though a little slow on action, was good and sweet.  I really got drawn into it.  The way it talks about relationships and forgiveness and attitude is amazing.  You have to give this one a try.

I received a copy of this book to review.  No other compensation was given.  The summary and opinion are 100% my own.

This is one of a new line of Harlequin romance books called The Heartwarming Collection.

  1. I'm a new follower here. I saw your post on the Clean Romance Group on Goodreads. I also run a book blog but I'm all over the place with the kinds of books I read. (Romance is my favorite though) I'm always looking for clean book recommendations. While every book I review on my site isn't clean, I always tell you what is in them because I'd want to know. I love what you are doing here and I'll be looking forward to reading your reviews.

  3. Thanks for the nice review of my book, which is a reissue of a novel I wrote in 1999. If you like romantic suspense, please try my latest in that genre, Fatal Judgment. Also clean!
