Book Description

Loss and betrayal have caused Heather Phillips to give up on love. She’s thrown herself into running The Lonely Loon, her Bed and Breakfast located on the boardwalk of Ocean City, Maryland. The “off season” in this tourist town is usually a time of rest and reflection for her; however, DB Atwell, a famous author, arrives at The Loon for the winter to finish his long-overdue novel. Daniel, too, has faced grief, and tragedy continues to haunt him. Once Heather and Daniel meet, their lives will never be the same. 

Reminiscent of Nights in Rodanthe by Nicholas Sparks and culminating in a happily-ever-after similar to the great Nora Roberts, Two Hearts in Winter is a story about learning to let go of the past, about realizing that, though hardship affects us, it need not define us, and about coming to understand and truly believe that beauty is sometimes covered in scars. The human heart has an amazing ability to forgive, to heal, and to hope, especially when touched by love.

Book Review 

There is a social message in each of Donna's books and the second book in the Ocean City Boardwalk Series is no exception. The first book dealt with organ donation. Sara and Landon came together because of his transplanted heart. We also met Sara's friends Heather and Cathy. This is Heather's book. We learn about why she is so cut off from the dating scene. She has seen her mother fight and lose the battle to breast cancer and that has coloured her life with fear and some proactive action. I don't want to give away the story, but needless to say, its very relevant in the society today.
Heather's beau is Daniel, and he has problems of his own. Daniel has hired out the entire Lonely Loon, the Bed and Breakfast that Heather runs, for the peace and quiet he requires to finish his next novel. Unfortunately, things are never exactly what they seem, he has a reason to hide and its eating up his heart. Can Heather help him heal even as his acceptance helps her come to terms with her own body? Its a beautiful book grounded in reality and speaking of how love can still be possible, if you just give it a chance.
I was gifted a copy of the book by the author for an honest review. I enjoyed it greatly and I look forward to seeing what Cathy will get up to with her on again off again boyfriend in the final book of the series.
