Product description

Product Description

Forgetting the past isn’t always a choice.

Jo Hayes is desperate for answers. After waking from a coma, she faces a harsh reality. Amnesia has stolen six years of her life. The only thing keeping her sane is her brother, Brighton, who vows to protect her at all cost.

As fear and confusion dominate Jo, she struggles to regain her memories. Pieces slowly emerge once she meets the mysterious Adam Hart. Something about him strikes a nerve she can’t ignore, and the more she’s with him, the harder she fights to remember.

While the flashbacks bring Jo closer to the truth, they leave her physically drained. If her memories don’t return naturally, the truth may destroy more than her mind. It may be the one thing that kills her.

Heartstrings is the first installment in the Heart & Soul Series. If you like riveting romances blended with love, loss, and hope, then you’ll enjoy Kelli McCracken’s gripping look at one woman’s struggle to overcome the odds.

This was not what I was expecting to read... it was mysterious and a little drawn out at the beginning... left the reader intrigued and I had to keep reading to complete the puzzle. The ending was a little abrupt, but overall a satisfying read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent freebie and start to a series - Not a cliffie 23 August 2015
By Sandy Milan - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is my first book by this author and I was pleasantly surprised. I picked it up as a freebie and it was well worth the chance. The book starts of in a really suspenseful way, with the h coming home after a traumatic accident. She's lost her memory and her brother and physician decide that in order to recover her memory properly, they must keep her in the dark about everything. She returns to her home but there are no clues there - no photos, no records of friends or even a lover. The h and her brother are twins but she's angry with him because she remembers that he's a recovering addict and she doesn't trust him. She's not happy that he won't tell her anything. She knows she was a musician but that because of the injuries suffered to her hand she'll never play in the symphony again. She appears to be having hallucinations where a man called Adam appears to her and she is incredibly drawn to him. Some time later another man Paxton comes to see her and he reminds her of Adam. I have to say that the book is impossible to put down because you just have to find out what's going on. The background theme of music was absolutely lovely.

What kept the book from being 5 stars? I'm not mad about the triangle between the h and the brothers. She got involved with the second brother during a 3 month break with the H some time back. It was tacky and I found it detracted a bit (but not a lot) from the story.

I'll definitely read the next in the series

5.0 out of 5 stars A soulful experience!!!! 23 April 2015
By Lara Lynn - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I am not new to Kelli McCracken's ability to create art with having read the Soulmate series books, but I must say she blew me away with this book! Her characters are so real and simply become a part of your life from page one until the end...and linger after that. Jo's road to recovery from an accident that not only stole her memories, but other precious things from her life, is a journey of mystery and realities, love and pain....heart and soul. I eagerly await the next installment of this series and any others Kelli McCracken has brewing in that brilliant mind of hers. 5 BIG STARS!!!

Jo is a twenty-six-year-old woman who awakens after being in a coma caused by an accident, She is very frustrated to find she has amnesia and is missing memories from a big part of her life. To make matters worse it seems like everyone is keeping secrets from her and they don't want to help her get her memories back. The experts have told those close to her not to force her to remember because her memories could be affected by what they say. Due to injuries of her hand, she is unable to play the piano which was one of the things she loved to do. Can she find another way to channel her musical interested and will she be able to get her memories back? This is a wonderfully written story and I really felt for the struggle Joe was going through. This author has found a new follower.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Stunning Book & Must Read by Kelli!!! 8 April 2015
By mdspond - Published on

Kelli has done it again with her amazing storytelling!! This story is amazing & draws you into yet another wonderful world full of colorful characters that speak to us through her words.

Jo is a musician that has undergone a tragedy that she herself cannot remember. Her brother, Brighton, is keeping what happened to himself & not telling her anything. She feels betrayed and doesn't know who to trust and is trying desperately to remember what happened to her and why she can't remember. The accident has claimed not only her memories, but also her career as a pianist. Her brother tries to help by providing other outlets for her musical abilities in the form of a guitar.

As she tries desperately to remember, she's visited by a boy named Adam, but he comes & goes so suddenly, that Jo thinks she's going crazy. But, she has such an attraction to Adam that she can't tell if she's imagining him or if he is real. Is he a memory, a ghost, a real boy, or a figment of her imagination?

She then meets Paxton, a boy from her past, and is drawn to him as well. She knows that he is important to her, but not how he is linked to her and her past. Throw in Hadley, a nurse hired by her brother, and you have a story that had me saying, Oh My Gosh!!!

Throughout the book's twists & turns, I was swept up into Jo's life (as well as the other characters) and went on the ride to getting her memories back with her. She re-learns relationships that she has forgotten & rekindles romance with the man of her dreams. This book has everything that a reader would ever ask for in a book.

Although this book is a standalone novel, I cannot wait to read all future installments of the Heart & Soul book series. I'm sure they will be as good as Kelli's other works. Only In Time (a Mystique Antiques Novel) and the Soulmate Series are other works by Kelli that are a MUST READ!!!

I cannot tell you how much I loved this book, but please do yourself a favor & pick it up & read it!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredibly Journey of Love, Heartbreak & Discovery 26 March 2015
By Tracy Arnett - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
All I can say is Kelli McCracken blew my mind but in a good way. WOW! So AMAZING!

In Heartstrings we meet Jo, who has suffered a traumatic accident and she can't remember anything. All she knows is her reason for being is gone, how can she create music again when she can't play the piano ever again.

She knows everyone around her is keeping things from her and everytime she tries to remember it just hurts her more. Then enter this mysterious person named Adam. Why does he disappear all the time, is he real? Is he a figment of her warped mind and sense of reality?

Jo feels like she is losing what little control she has until Paxton shows up on her doorstep. He looks so much like Adam but who is he really and what is he to her. She feels so connected to him and shares her fears, but who is Paxton really and who is Adam?

In this book Kelli takes us on emotional self discovery as we travel the path right next to Jo. We experience her pain and the frustration of not knowing who she is or who she was for the past few years. The way this story weaves around you and becomes one in your heart is amazing. This book had me feeling so much emotion and at one point I couldn't see the words through my tears.

I am in awe and wonder of Kelli's Storytelling Talent. I fell in love with her books with the Soulmate Series, the love affair continued in the Mystique Antiques Series and now with the Heart & Soul Series; I see myself becoming more and more of a super fan of Kelli McCracken's. I wish I could give this book a MILLION STARS!!! Unfortunately I am limited to five.

Be prepared Kelli because I plan on stalking you for a very long time!!!
