About the Book:
Children’s clothing designer Mary Wade Kimball’s soft spot for animals leads to a hostage situation when she spots a briar- entangled kitten in front of an abandoned house. Beaten, bound, and gagged by the two thugs inside, Mary Wade loses hope for escape when a third villain returns with supplies. Discovering the kidnapped woman ratchets the complications for undercover agent Brett Davis. Weighing the difference of ruining his three months’ investigation against the woman’s safety, Brett forsakes his mission and helps her escape, the bent-on-revenge brutes following behind. When Mary Wade’s safety is threatened once more, Brett rescues her again. This time, her personal safety isn’t the only thing in jeopardy. Her heart is endangered as well.
My Personal Thoughts and Review:
I enjoyed Rescued Hearts by Hope Toler Doughtery. This was my first time to read any of the author’s work and though at first, I was slow to warm up to her writing style I thought that the book was an interesting read. It isn’t one of those stories that are predictable or cookie cutter, so that kept me reading each chapter wondering what would happen next. I also enjoyed the storyline as it is a bit of romance mixed with suspense, which is nice and refreshing.
Some of the actions of the lead male character, Brett, left me scratching my head, and the Mary Wade had some characteristics that I found hard to connect with at times but overall it was a good read and one I would recommend you research some more and decide if you would enjoy yourself.
