Trust My Heart
If you're looking for a fun and sweet Christian read, Trust My Heart by Carol J. Post fits the bill. Set in an idyllic small town in North Carolina, the story brings together the two main characters - Grant McAllister and Jami Carlisle - as they are both facing challenges and heartbreaks. The back cover reads:
"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…"
Trust My Heart is the perfect book to pass a relaxing afternoon with a cup of coffee. I loved the small-town, charming setting and Carol brought it to life skillfully. I found myself rooting for Grant and Jami, and the story has just enough of a tinge of intrigue to keep the pages turning quickly. This is a quick and easy read that provides a satisfying story while weaving Christian truths and values throughout. I love a good contemporary Christian fiction book and Trust My Heart fit the bill. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a Christian romance with a touch of mystery.
