Blog Tour: This Heart of Mine

Welcome to my tour stop for This Heart of Mine by Brenda Novak.  The tour will consist of reviews and spotlights and runs March 16- April 7th. 
Check out the tour page for more information.

* Book 8 in the Whiskey Creek series *
Phoenix spent seventeen years in jail fro a crime she swears she didn't commit. Now that she's out, the only thing she cares about is creating a bond with her son Jake - which means dealing with his father Riley. She'll do almost anything to have a chance to get to know her son.

Riley's never trusted Phoenix's story and there's no way to prove her innocence. Still, he's not about to keep their son from his mother. After they meet and become reacquainted, Riley's opinion starts to change. Phoenix isn't bitter or full or hatred - in fact the simplest things make her happy. Now that his son has a mother in his life, Riley will protect her from the harden hearts in town.
My Thoughts: I really enjoy this small town series full of favorite characters. I really liked Phoenix - she was smart, sweet, independent, proud, stubborn, and full of heart. She made lemonade out of lemons.

I loved the moments between her and Jacob; they were sweet and caring. Jacob is smart, strong, innocent, and good a meddling. The moments where he tries to get his parents together alternate between amusing and sweet.

I'm glad that Riley's now older and can acknowledge his feelings. I'm glad that he's standing up for the mother of his child and eventually the woman he grows to love. The moments aren't always easy but doing the right thing isn't always easy.

Cover Thoughts: Adorable and charming

Final Thoughts: A fantastic addition to this series full of romance, friendship, and real problems. If you've haven't read this series - get started!
