Here’s my review of Reunited Hearts.

Surprises are in store for Military hero Trent Michaels when he returns home to Jamison, New York.  Sure, the town’s grown a bit. New buildings, new people, new stories along the streets of the quaint little town – but one surprise arrives he never expected.

His son.

Twelve years after his high school sweetheart refused to marry him, and disappeared, Trent meets the son he never knew he had. Can he work through his own feelings of betrayal and anger to find the reason why Alyssa Langley broke his heart twice? Was his orphaned upbringing the real reason she left him, or was there something much deeper behind her disappearance?

Is the love and attraction that held them together when they
were young strong enough to bind them through their greatest fears?

My thoughts:

Well, Ruth Logan Herne has done it again – crafted a beautiful
story about two hearts who journey home. Alyssa’s carrying a burden of guilt
that threatens to suffocate the hope she begins to feel in Trent’s presence.

It’s a beautiful story of hope, healing, and reuniting that
can only happen when forgiveness gets involved.
A definite read!

And the cameo appearance by a really cute pregnant preacher’s
wife made me feel right at home ;-)

    Her books are “real” and this is what sets them apart from many others out there. Surely enjoy them.

      My pleasure, Karen. Ruthy is, after all, my adopted writing mother. I need to brag about her every once in a while 🙂

      Pam,
      I can totally relate. And it sounds like Ruthy’s newest book is going to be just wonderful. Did you know she has a Christmas book coming out too? Bad-boy turned good.
      I just LOVE those kinds 🙂
