Carol Post is another new-to-me author but the description and book cover beckoned so I accepted the invitation to review “Trust My Heart”. Inside its pages I found a well written story filled with interesting characters, a strong plot, and a few surprises.

“Trust My Heart” is one of those mostly feel good, small town love stories but of course both primary characters have unresolved issues that they manage to help each other overcome. Jami is a sweet and positive young woman with a dream. She wants to be the best journalist she can be and is determined to succeed with her first big assignment for the local newspaper. Her article is to feature the McAllister estate and its heir, grandson Grant who just wants to sell the place and get back to his life. He is definitely not interested in learning about the grandparents he grew up believing did not want him.

I enjoyed how this story evolved complete with misunderstandings, secrets revealed, and of course a big dose of romance. I loved the setting of the Smoky Mountains and could easily envision some of the scenes. “Trust My Heart” was everything a good Christian romance should be. I look forward to reading more from this author.

A free copy of this book was provided for review by Litfuse Publicity.
A favorable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.

Grant McAllister arrives in Murphy, North Carolina, with one aim: to sell his inherited property and leave as quickly as possible. The big-city lawyer has no interest in his late, estranged grandparents or the dilapidated mansion he just acquired. After his high-profile divorce, he should be avoiding perky reporters, too. But Jami Carlisle is honest, funny, and undeniably appealing.

After breaking up with her safe-but-smothering boyfriend, Jami is determined to ace her first big assignment. A story about the McAllister estate is too intriguing to ignore—much like its handsome, commitment-phobic heir. Thanks to her digging, the pieces of Grant’s fraught family history are gradually fitting into place, but also upending all his old beliefs.

The two draw closer as they share their dreams, until misread signals and misunderstandings begin to test their trust. But in the unspoiled beauty of the Smoky Mountains, there’s healing and forgiveness to be found. And for Grant, this unplanned detour may be just what’s needed to finally guide him home. . . .

Her books have been nominated for a RITA® award and an RT Reviewers’ Choice Best Book Award.
