Hearts Made Whole - Jody Hedlund (GIVEAWAY!)


4 Stars!

ABOUT THE BOOK -
Can she forgive the hurting man who costs her the role she loves?

After her father's death, Caroline Taylor has grown confident running the Windmill Point Lighthouse. But in 1865 Michigan, women aren't supposed to have such roles, so it's only a matter of time before the lighthouse inspector appoints a new keeper---even though Caroline has nowhere else to go and no other job available to her.

Ryan Chambers is a Civil War veteran still haunted by the horrors of battle. He's secured the position of lighthouse keeper mostly for the isolation---the chance to hide from his past is appealing. He's not expecting the current keeper to be a feisty and beautiful woman who's angry with him for taking her job and for his inability to properly run the light. When his failings endanger others, he and Caroline realize he's in no shape to run the lighthouse, but he's unwilling to let anyone close enough to help. Caroline feels drawn to this wounded soul, but with both of them relying on that single position, can they look past their loss to a future filled with hope...and possibly love?

MY THOUGHTS -
Always a good one by Jody! I think this is my third book by her. I love this new series she has written - historical fiction, taking place in lighthouses, all of them a little suspenseful.

This was a nice, easy reading, romantic, fun book to read. It was light but very enjoyable and entertaining. There was not edge of your seat suspense, but there was enough to keep the story interesting.

Jodi also has a real nice way with characters. I liked all the characters in her, the good and the bad. I did want to find myself wanting to know more about Tessa, the sister who wanted nothing to do with living in a lighthouse. All she wanted was to get away. I would love a book just about her.

Thank you Bethany house and Litfuse for this e-book in exchange for my honest review!
