Description:

The historic Madrigal theater, in the heart of downtown Wishful, is about to close its doors forever.  A last ditch fund-raising effort, a production of White Christmas, is probably the only thing that could bring Tyler Edison out of retirement.  She fell in love on that stage, but when Brody Jensen abandoned her, she lost the heart to sing and dance for the crowd.  Maybe it’s time to take that back…

It seems like pure chance when Brody’s job, which has taken him all over the world, brings him back to his little hometown to oversee his boss’s latest secret project.  Brody’s looking for closure, planning to sell the house his parents left him and finally put his past, and his memories of Tyler, behind him.  What better way than to be a part of this last show?  Even though his leading lady is surely long gone…

Put on your dancing shoes, auditions start at six o’clock.

Be Careful, It’s My Heart is a novella of approximately 39k words.

My Review

Four Stars!!

If you are in the mood for a lighthearted story, then I suggest “Be Careful, It’s My Heart.”

This was a fun, quick read – but not so quick that it felt rushed. The characters were charming and the plot fun. Kait Nolan has a wonderful skill of writing tension. This kept me turning pages.

The town of Wishful, Mississippi is a great setting. I certainly hope Ms Nolan continues this series. My only critique is, I hoped for more atmosphere and mood from the small town setting – more physical description. I think I want this because I know I will love the scene Kait will paint.

If you’ve read any of the short novels from the Harlequin Kiss line of books, you will LOVE this title.

I’m eager to read more.

I Dream of Johnny

Escape Publishing
42 pages
* I purchased this ebook.

Description:

From the author of Fast Forward comes a story about three wishes, a high-tech genie in a lamp, and one very unfortunate typo…

Getting three wishes isn’t all it’s cracked up to be when an unfortunate spelling error in Mandy’s high-tech magic lamp changes her wish for a Greek God to a Geek God. His fashion IQ is in the negatives, he’s clingier than cling wrap, and he has a penchant for breaking into song at inappropriate moments. Before Mandy can request a replacement wish, she has to put up with him for twenty four hours, and the timing couldn’t be worse — it’s her friend’s wedding day, her ex will be there, and the God of Geeks insists on coming along for the ride!

My Review:

FIVE STARS

I thoroughly enjoyed this short ebook. I giggled and chuckled all the way through – I even cringed in a few spots.

Jonathan is lovable and the story such fun. A few parts were over the top, but that was part of the charm.

I may have gotten a little misty-eyed at the end.

This story would make a great TV movie.

Since he was disfigured in a fire sixteen years ago, recluse Louis Malone has remained hidden from the prying eyes of his neighbors in the small town of Waverly.

When Louis accidentally falls out of his second-story window, these two kindred souls are brought together. What unfolds is a most unlikely love story. One that will make you laugh and that will break—and remake—your heart.
