Review: Trust My Heart by Carol J. Post

About the book:

Trust My Heart (Waterfall Press, October 2016)

Grant McAllister arrives in Murphy, North Carolina, with one aim: to sell his inherited property and leave as quickly as possible.

The big-city lawyer has no interest in his late, estranged grandparents or the dilapidated mansion he just acquired. After his high-profile divorce, he should be avoiding perky reporters, too. But Jami Carlisle is honest, funny, and undeniably appealing.

After breaking up with her safe-but-smothering boyfriend, Jami is determined to ace her first big assignment. A story about the McAllister estate is too intriguing to ignore---much like its handsome, commitment-phobic heir. Thanks to her digging, the pieces of Grant's fraught family history are gradually fitting into place, but also upending all his old beliefs.

The two draw closer as they share their dreams, until misread signals and misunderstandings begin to test their trust. But in the unspoiled beauty of the Smoky Mountains, there's healing and forgiveness to be found. And for Grant, this unplanned detour may be just what's needed to finally guide him home...

My Review:

Trust My Heart by Carol J. Post is a story about Grant and Jami, two people who have been betrayed and hurt in the past as children, and neither has come quite to grips with what to do with the pain.  Both have commitment and serious trust issues for different reasons.  With the help of some busy bodies, Grant and Jami’s budding relationship hits some major road bumps along the way to true love.  Miscommunication and not taking the time to have a real conversation had me wanting to smack these two upside the head.  However, I felt for both of them and the author had me understanding where they were coming from.  The misunderstandings added a depth to the story and to Grant and Jami characters that made their love journey all the richer by exposing the extent of their pain and the ending was all the sweeter because of the trials.   

Not only are we treated to this sweet, slow-budding romance, we also get to meet some eccentric characters, maybe another romance brewing, and a couple of cute dogs who show love no matter what.  I hope the author writes more as Jami’s two best friends sound like they have interesting stories to tell too.  I enjoyed this story and I was very invested in these characters lives. 

I received a copy of this book for free from Litfuse.  I was not required to write a positive review and the views expressed are my own.

About the Author:

From medical secretary to court reporter to property manager to owner of a special-events decorating company, Carol J. Post's résumé reads as if she hasn't yet decided what she wants to be when she grows up. But one thing that has remained constant through the years is her love of writing. She started as a child composing poetry for family and friends, then graduated to articles for religious and children's publications. Now she pens fun, fast-paced inspirational romance and romantic suspense stories. Her books have been nominated for an RT Reviewers' Choice Best Book award and selected as an RT Top Pick. When Carol isn't writing, she enjoys sailing, hiking, camping---almost anything outdoors. She also plays the piano and sings with her music-minister husband. Their two grown daughters and their grandkids live too far away for her liking, so she now pours all her nurturing into taking care of a fat and sassy black cat and a highly spoiled dachshund.
