Claire & Michael both feel the spark when Claire starts work as a live-in nurse for his mother, but both are carrying trauma from previous relationships which threatens to derail their romance before it even starts. This debut novel by a very talented romance author will push you through all the emotions as you read how Claire and Michael overcome their own demons and find the strength to start anew with each other. The perfect romance to curl up with by the fire or stretch out with on the beach.
What an emotionally charged story! Abandoned Hearts encompasses some pretty heavy/intense topics but, Lisa handled it with respect and no small amount of flair. I love how she's woven darkness and hope together into such an uplifting tale. My only "complaint" was that I wish there was more page time to show how their love progressed in the early stages - but then again, I read this book under two days flat and couldn't quite put it down. What an amazing debut - I enjoyed every minute of it!
Lisa's novel explores the difficulty of moving on from a past relationship and the baggage we take to the next one. She explores some tough subjects and ones that most of us have either experienced or know someone close who has. A great novel and emotive writing. Well worth the read and was nice to be caught up in someone elses drama even for a brief moment.
