But when he gets to know Heather, his heart is drawn to her and soon he finds himself falling in love with the nurse. The only problem is Heather seems reluctant to let him into her heart.

Great story line. Ends too soon and I can’t find the 2nd part. Shadows in the night.
Secrets of the Heart
This book was under the FREE titles, but it ended suddenly with an invite to buy it in order to finish the book. Pretty sleezie and untruthful. Not happy.
Like a Hallmark Movie
I hate that I actually had to buy the second and third book in this series.. It kept me wanting to read them, only because I had to find what was the heck was going to happen??! It bugged me. This should have been one long book in my opinion. Heathers character seemed to go from an independent, smart, young woman who knows what she wants only to become a woman who was unsure of herself and decided not to go to Paris,for the opportunity of a lifetime. Only to stay with a narcissistic ass of a man! I felt sorry for what happened to him, but still. Maybe this humbled him??
Michael was so controlling & manipulative. He was better off with Cynthia. I felt bad for the little girl to have been a part of this. Heather crossed over way too many boundaries as a professional Nurse in the Home Care field. It bothered me so much as someone who is in the medical field myself. Heather just should have went to Paris and Then retuned back to Crystal Cove if she wanted to. The house she inherited could have waited a year or so. These books were an easy short read, but left terrible cliffhangers, so I had to buy the second & third book to get to the very end. It wasn’t that much a suspenseful novel as it said it was. Overall I did like how it was able to pull me in, but it was cheesy writing and the characters choices just made me mad..
