#Review - Opening Hearts by Iona Findley

Title: Opening Hearts
Author: Iona Findley
Rating: 3.5 stars

I was given this book by the author for an honest review.

When I read the summary for this book I was intrigued. I don't know what it is, but there is something about unplanned pregnancies and how the couple deals with that that piques my interest.

At the beginning of this book, Jessalyn and Sam were little more than strangers. I enjoyed the build up at the beginning of the story. The author didn't rush to get them together as a couple. I was, however, a little disappointed in the fact that once they were together the author seemed to skip over some scenes which I thought were pretty important like her meeting his family. Whether or not this was done to make a specific word count I don't know.

There were a few editing issues, but nothing major. And aside from the skipping of the family scenes I mentioned, the book flowed well. I enjoyed the set up, and for the most part, the execution, as well.

This is the first book in a series and I will most likely be checking out the next book. I recommend this story for those readers looking for a heartwarming modern day romance.


Author Bio

Iona Findley embarked on her career as a romance writer with her very first words, "love, love, love," which she carefully dictated to her mother. Despite spurious rumors, probably the work of a jealous sibling, that her words might actually have been, "lub, lub, lub," (surely not!) or even "blub, blub, blub" (horrors!), Iona pursued a vocation in romance writing with enthusiasm. Writing fulltime now Iona fulfils the promise of her early words crafting intriguing novels of "love, love, love."
