The Hearts We Mend

The Hearts We Mend
Banister Falls Book 2
Kathryn Springer
Evie knows all about heartache. Her husband, a firefighter, was killed during a fire leaving her with her five year old son Cody. Now, thirteen years later, she's almost a grandmother and Cody is married to a wonderful woman. Evie meets a guy named Jack who is completely different from her organized, scheduled self. Evie needs to decide if she's holding on to her late husband or if she wants to take a chance on a crazy new life that won't be quiet or predictable. 
 I really enjoyed the nuances of this book. The sprinkles of faith, the courage and purpose, the importance of family, and the unique characters drew me in and kept me for the entire story. This wasn't just a book about two people falling in love, it was a story about community and family. It has been a while since I read book 1 so it was nice to jump back into the town with characters I was familiar with and see where they were now. But I think this book would also work well as a stand alone novel. Overall, this was a well written story that will appeal to a large audience. I will definitely be adding it to my library.
I received this book free of charge from Litfuse Publicity in exchange for my honest review.
