Any additional comments?

Love Heals the Heart is Diane Rose Duffy’s second novel (she has also published at least one children’s book). I had the pleasure of listening to the audio version of this book. It’s a charming and funny contemporary romance with a little adventure thrown in for good measure.

Gracie Watson is a lifelong resident of her small town in Northern California. She leads a relatively quiet life while trying to avoid any more scandal than her divorce has already brought on. Being a first-grade teacher, she has to be careful about that sort of thing! I loved Gracie’s sense of humor. I could imagine her smirking with her snarky inner dialog. Gracie is a totally relatable character; she’d be a great friend--unless your idea of a good time is hiking and camping. She’s more of the spa and shopping type.

Dylan Sanders is a detective in a neighboring town. He’s a good-looking guy who attracts a lot of attention from women, but he’s had disastrous luck in the past and avoids relationships as a result. He feels safer just focusing on his job.

Secondary characters Trish and Justin, are Gracie’s and Dylan’s best friends, respectively. Both have strong personalities, and both are the sorts you want to have in your corner. Their feisty exchanges are fun; their attraction to each other is obvious to everyone but themselves.

Love Heals the Heart is fun and adventurous from Gracie’s and Dylan’s embarrassing first meeting to the end. How would you feel if you met a gorgeous guy while taking care of nature’s call in the woods? This book is filled with snark, humor, adventure and romance. The fun doesn’t stop at that first meeting, but Love Heals the Heart has more going on then just humor. Gracie and Dylan both carry a lot of baggage that becomes a hurdle for an intimate relationship. They have to overcome and overlook a lot and take the giant leap of faith in one another. Beyond that, there is the small issue of a local drug ring that Dylan and Justin have been pursuing.

Author Diane Rose Duffy’s Love Heals the Heart is an engaging read with plenty of action, angst and mystery. The love story and humor seal the deal for Love Heals the Heart being a good read.
