My Review

I received a ARC copy in exchange for a honest review, thanks to the author Jodi Thomas and Berkley Publishing. This is a full honest review.

One True Heart is the eighth installment in the Haromony Series, and this is the first opportunity I have had to read this author. So going into this one I wasn’t sure how I would react to it, but I am very pleased with this story. There were many aspects of the story I enjoyed, and then there were a couple things that tended to distract me from being fully involved in it. What we have here is three sub plot, but they kinda blend together in a harmonious way that I wasn’t expecting. The main focus I felt on the story was Millanie and Drew. Drew is a teacher, and a bit of a nerd, but a attractive one at that. Very intelligent and strong, yet has a passionate side you don’t expect from him. Millanie served in the military, and due to a injury to her leg, she has been discharged, so she heads to the only place she knows that can bring her some semblance of peace…Harmony. This is where we see a strong attraction between her and Drew. Th e other two plots at first you have to stick with, but I loved the way that you see the other two couples come together in circumstances where love isn’t expected to ever happen. What distracted me was the sub plots, I am more of a main story kinda gal. These sub plots reminded me of the way Tom Clancy tends to write his books (which can be confusing sometimes). And in all honesty I wasn’t really confused much, I just had a hard time having my attention stay on the story. What I did love most was the small town feel to this story, seeing the simple way that falling in love does to one that doesn’t expect it. It was like taking a bite out of your favorite simple pleasure. One True Heart is a tender and charming story that wraps you up like a cozy blanket on a cold winter’s night. It that comforting feel to it that you wish you could have forever. Definitely going to try this author out more, I love the style of writing and her encanting way of creating a love story to captivate one’s reader.

  1. I read one book by Jodi Thomas that I think was the prequel to this series since its a historical about the founding of Harmony. That one had a few story threads too. I love your description of small town life and her writing. Guess I’ll have to give it another go soon.
