From the Editor

I’ve always loved a delicious can’t-wait-’til-it’s-revealed secret! I think I find them so appealing because I love the anticipation when we know something the character doesn’t know. I love the buildup of tension as we wonder when the big reveal will come. And I especially love talking with people about a secret revealed, because it makes me feel bonded with them, as if we’re sharing something special.

One something special I’m excited to share is that Shelly Alexander’s debut novel, It’s In His Heart, is a breath of fresh, luscious summer air.

Our protagonist, Ella, retreats to the picturesque mountain town of Red River Valley, New Mexico, looking for closure after losing her first love. But she’s keeping a sizzling secret that will surprise her friends and change the town’s perception of her. Then, yet another surprise pops up: Cooper Wells, her husband’s best friend. Ella fears that the secret past she and Coop share is so scandalous that she won’t get the happy ending she’s seeking. And that’s what enchanted me the most about this sassy, funny, heartwarming love story: what secrets can lead to for characters and for readers. Readers love secrets for the anticipation and adrenaline, but for the characters, secrets often feel like burdens or obstacles. It’s in the unburdening—that moment of catharsis for both the reader and the characters—that everyone gets their happy ending.

Kiss by summery kiss, deep in the unforgettable mountains and valleys of Red River, It’s In His Heart will entice you and make you feel good. And I promise: it’s okay if you tell!

- Kelli Martin, Editor


Product description

Product Description

She has a secret. He has a scandal. And they both have an attraction they can’t deny.

Ella Dennings is furious. Soaking wet, muddy, and furious. All she wants is to enjoy a quiet summer retreat in her Red River Valley cabin. Maybe she can finish healing after the death of her husband, Bradley. Maybe she can even finish writing that third book in her anonymously written bestselling series. But when she arrives at the cabin in a raging rainstorm, who does she find holed up there but Cooper Wells, Bradley’s sexy best friend—a man capable of seducing women within seconds—and a man Ella has never liked.

Coop’s got his own baggage. He’s engulfed in a nasty legal battle, and after selling his home to cover his legal fees, he’s got nowhere to go but the cabin. He and Ella will just have to coexist under one roof...but is their heated animosity boiling over into attraction? And when Ella’s racy new book rocks the sleepy town, will her secret identity spell scandal for both of them?

Format: Kindle Edition
Like a breath of fresh air comes this beautifully packaged romantic comedy which is full of love and laughter. As I started on the first chapter I knew it won’t take me long to reach the last and thirtieth chapter. Sure enough, I raced to finish it within a few hours. Do I like it? Let me put it this way: it is definitely a great start for a new author.

Drawing inspiration from the real people and real town of Red River in New Mexico which is the setting for the story, the first book in the Red River Valley series, It's In His Heart by Shelly Alexander is a moving and beautiful story of healing and forgiveness which is as touching as it is soothing. Though the characters are formed from Shelly’s imagination, she has meticulously captured the magic of Red River in a way only she could do. The two key characters in the story are finely etched, with secrets of their own. After the death of her husband, Ella Dennings wants a fresh start to a new life. Her husband Bradley’s best friend Cooper Wells is also seeking a new life. They are poles apart, just the opposite. But when they found themselves holed up in a cabin (one of my few gripes as it was too expedient), they begin to see each other in new light. Will they find their rainbow after all the storms they passed through?

Debut author Shelly Alexander who has lived out a fairy tale love story herself for over twenty five years now constructed an unbelievably satiating love story which is funny, clever, spirited, sharp and sexy as it can be, yet not bereft of scandals and secrets. As much as it is a story full of fun and laughter, It’s In His Heart is also a story of new beginnings and second chances - a story of healing and passion.

Predictable and lame, humour non existent, I was giving up on it 1/4 through and perservered then ended up skimming to the end.
