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…
Bubby: I’m just waiting for the day when some long-lost eccentric relative dies and leaves me a mansion, dilapidated or otherwise, and pots of money. I mean, I know it’s never going to happen, but I can dream, right?
Unfortunately for Grant, when this dream scenario happens for him, he wants nothing to do with the house or the money. His grandparents never wanted him, so why should he care about their stuff? And Jami – she can’t give her heart away because every time she does, she gets left behind. These two really have the deck stacked against them!
Sissy: They do. And poor Jami works really hard throughout Trust My Heart to find out the truth, get her story and have a relationship with Grant. She gets a gold star for that last one, too, because sometimes Grant is just such a MAN! Such a duddle head putz. I wanted to shake him and wake him up. It would have made things so much easier! I loved the small town setting, being a small town girl myself, and the secondary characters, especially Bernie and Hank, were fun and endearing.
Bubby: I’m going to be Bernie when I’m old. I’m going to dress flamboyantly, tell it like it is and annoy people just because I can.
Sissy: You’ve already got the annoying people part down. You can check that one right off your list.
Bubby: Really? Fine. Next time you need me I’ll just be too busy annoying people to help you. See how you like that!
Sissy: I’m your favorite person to annoy. You can’t resist it.
Bubby: Hmmph. Let’s get back to the story. Trust My Heart is a sweet, moving tale of two people who have to wade through misunderstandings, deceit and baggage to get to their happy ending but the journey just makes the destination that much better. I really enjoyed this one – it’s everything I’m looking for in a romance novel.
Sissy: Me too. I especially liked the mystery woven into the story about Grant’s grandparents and the mansion. Excellent romance mixed with a touch of inspiration.
