Five Hearts for Faith of the Heart!

Faith of the Heart just received a beautiful 5 Heart review from Brenda Talley at The Romance Studio!

Thanks so much, Brenda!

Here's what she had to say:
* * * *

Sarah Reid healed people. Sounds weird, but it happened. She took the illness of a very sick person into her own body and the person was well. Her sister and brother-in-law, Hannah and Doug Fanning, were exploiting her clients without Sarah’s knowledge. They demanded $5,000 from the people after Sarah healed them. She had no idea they were doing anything like that because, after a healing session, Sarah would fall into a deep sleep for several hours. She was literally dying from the toll this was taking on her body. She didn’t try to stop it because she held herself responsible for her best friend’s death when they were both drunk.

Joshua Miller was a journalist who hadn’t written in the year since his wife died of cancer. His 13-year-old daughter, Libby, constantly worried about him. Then Ross Kennedy, who was married to Joshua’s cousin Laurie, called him and begged him to expose this "supposed faith healer" who had taken $5,000 from his sister. Cheryl had Lupus but was convinced she had been healed when she visited Sarah. When Josh went to visit Sarah, his life would change forever.

Book 4 in the Damaged Heroes series by Sandy James is another blockbuster. I have come to expect it after reading the previous books in this series. The cast of players in this offering were totally different. They were all individuals who came together to give us a great story with an emotional plot. The highs and lows of this tender storyline gave readers the expected dose of James’ magic.

As usual with one of her novels, I couldn’t imagine how a happily-ever-after could come from the story but I knew I would get one—somehow. This book had so much heartrending activity it was impossible to put it down. This definitely was not a predictable book. The sensuality was charged and tastefully done. The sizzle was there even though the circumstances were definitely unusual.
I loved this book and highly recommend it. You will see why Sandy James has found her own special place on my "must-have" bookshelf.
