“Trust My Heart” had my attention when I found out that one of the main characters is a journalist. However, I really didn’t really know what to expect from it.

neverending-stories-revised1The story follows Jamie, a newbie journalist, as she tries to interview Grant McAllister, a man who recently inherited a grand estate in Murphy, North Carolina.

Having been burned in the past, Grant wants nothing to do with the newspaperwoman — no matter how charming she is.

Jamie’s and Grant’s characters both were well drawn. Each is damaged and has flaws.

I really enjoyed the pacing, which was a nice mix of quickly transpiring events and slower contemplative scenes. And the setting is described beautifully.

The novel is a really easy read — I read half of it in one setting. However, it doesn’t shy away from issues of faith and forgiveness.

There were a few times that I felt like something pulled me out of the story, but I generally was able to get back into the story fairly easily.

All in all, I really enjoyed “Trust My Heart,” and would recommend it to fans of family dramas and Christian fiction.

“Trust My Heart” was written by Carol J. Post. It was published by Waterfall Press on Oct. 25.

About the author

From medical secretary to court reporter to property manager to owner of a special-events decorating company, Carol J. Post’s résumé reads as if she hasn’t yet decided what she wants to be when she grows up.

But one thing that has remained constant through the years is her love of writing. She started as a child composing poetry for family and friends, then graduated to articles for religious and children’s publications.

Now she pens fun, fast-paced inspirational romance and romantic suspense stories. Her books have been nominated for an RT Reviewers’ Choice Best Book award and selected as an RT Top Pick.

When Carol isn’t writing, she enjoys sailing, hiking, camping — almost anything outdoors. She also plays the piano and sings with her music-minister husband.

Their two grown daughters and their grandkids live too far away for her liking, so she now pours all her nurturing into taking care of a fat and sassy black cat and a highly spoiled dachshund.
