Recipe for a Page-Turning success
August 16, 2011
Jeff is a heart-worthy hero. While determined to be successful in business, he still places family first -- most of the time! He's kind to old ladies, has gallant manners, is extremely easy on the eye and pursues the heroine with a dogged determination that will curl your toes. Of course, he's not perfect. The man knows how to carry a grudge but watching him let go and let God during the course of the book was an uplifting reminder to do the same in my own life.
Hannah is gentle and sweet, easy and open with her girlfriend, Megan, but definitely standoffish with poor Jeff . She's keeping an emotional distance even though she's fighting not to. She almost seems timid at times but through the course of the book the reader learns just how much grit and determination Hannah really has. She's a survivor!
Recipe for a page-turning success:
Take two complicated characters with issues from their past, add in some instant attraction and romantic chemistry. Throw in a complicated plot masked in simplicity and then blend it all up with raw emotions.
Result: Mended Hearts -- the sweetest of reads!
