Faint Heart by Lizzie Ashworth
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
A truly lovely read.
At times I was laughing, I loved the first few pages where she was trying to get Morgan's attention and so she got into a right fix knee deep in mud!
You could actually feel the initial attraction and heat coming through the pages of this book.
As any true romance, it has its ups and downs, and we see how lack of communication can alter everything, as in life.
The outcome of the book was lovely.
My thanks to the author Lizzie Ashworth for allowing me to read a complimentary copy of this lovely book. It kept me entertained for a few hours.
Cara Carson only wants one thing, and it isn’t a man. Since the tragic death of her husband, she has focused on creating a business she could give herself to, a ‘marriage’ that will never leave her stunned in grief. Her recipes are perfected and the old house remodel is underway. But on this raw March morning, the contractor isn’t returning her calls, there’s a bulldozer mired in mud on the side lot, and the man operating it has managed to destroy the huge old willow tree she wanted saved. Furious, she charges across the mire to demand answers and finds her feet stuck and then her heart flailing after the bulldozer operator has to come carry her out.
Morgan Woods never believed in love. Until now, it’s been easy to take and leave women. This woman shouldn’t be any different, except something about her pouty pink lips and her blazing hazel eyes sails past all his defenses. His business-partner dad is sick and his businesses are struggling, but he never wants to let this woman out of his arms.
Can two broken people find a way to trust again? Or will their mistakes only add more layers to the scars already shrouding their hearts?
