A Dickensian delight! Victorian London and the characters within come alive within these pages. I thoroughly enjoyed riding the characters coattails through bustling streets between the Golden Egg Inn, Purcells Tea Room, and more as they wove a tangled web of their own designand then desperately tried to unravel it before falling through the strands. A refreshing tale perfectly paired with a cup of Christmas tea.

When a seemingly harmless deception escalates to alarming proportions, the characters in A Tale of Two Hearts are forced to question their values and decide if sacrificing their integrity justifies the altruistic outcome. This delightful story combines a host of interesting characters, fresh writing, and a heartwarming ending that will leave the reader smiling.

In A Tale of Two Hearts, Michelle Griep tells a skillfully woven tale both elegant and heartwarming. Charles Dickens would be delighted with the way she tucked into this storys pockets truths and observations he penned long ago. Highly recommended reading, no matter the season.

Delightful Christmas fare perfect for fans of English historicals, brimful with Dickensian details and the beautiful Christian truth of second chances.

I have found another favorite author and its Michelle Griep. With an incredible ability to spin a beautiful tale, Griep sucked me into the story from the very first paragraph. From the historical detail to the English setting to the unforgettable and enjoyable characters, I didn't want to put this book down. William and Mina will stick with me for a long time. This will be a story to read again and again. And now Im off to find every Michelle Griep book I can get my hands on.

A heartwarming tale of second chances coming from the least expected places. I loved the many nods to Dickens and the inventive twists on a few other classics. In A Tale of Two Hearts, romance isnt only for the young, and fresh starts arent only for the faultless. An uplifting and charming holiday story!
