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.
I really liked this book. It was a sweet romance story, but much more then just a romance. Heather had issues she was dealing with and Daniel had his baggage full of personal problems he had to struggle with. However, slowly they begin to trust each other and help one another overcome the hurdles they had to cross.
It was a quick read and once I started reading it I was glued to my e-reader. I loved the ending, very believable. I can't wait for the next book in the series. I somehow missed the first book in this series, so will be reading it soon.
Even though it is Book 2 in the Ocean City Boardwalk series it is also a stand alone book. I enjoyed it so much I have decided to award it 5 yes 5 "Heart" Stars.
I own this book and it is a part of my Nook library.
