Trust My Heart by Carol J. Post

Trust My Heart

by Carol J Post  

General/Christian Fiction
Grant McAllister arrives in Murphy, North Carolina, with one aim: to sell his inherited property and leave as quickly as possible. The big-city lawyer has no interest in his late, estranged grandparents or the dilapidated mansion he just acquired. After his high-profile divorce, he should be avoiding perky reporters, too. But Jami Carlisle is honest, funny, and undeniably appealing.
After breaking up with her safe-but-smothering boyfriend, Jami is determined to ace her first big assignment. A story about the McAllister estate is too intriguing to ignore---much like its handsome, commitment-phobic heir. Thanks to her digging, the pieces of Grant's fraught family history are gradually fitting into place, but also upending all his old beliefs.
The two draw closer as they share their dreams, until misread signals and misunderstandings begin to test their trust. But in the unspoiled beauty of the Smoky Mountains, there's healing and forgiveness to be found. And for Grant, this unplanned detour may be just what's needed to finally guide him home. . . .

 Meet the Author
From medical secretary to court reporter to property manager to owner of a special events decorating company, Carol's résumé reads as if she doesn't know what she wants to be when she grows up. But one thing that has remained constant through the years is her love for writing. She currently pens fun and fast-paced inspirational romance and romantic suspense stories. Her books have been nominated for a RITA® award and an RT Reviewers' Choice Best Book Award. Carol lives in sunshiny Central Florida with her husband, who is her own real-life hero, and writes her stories under the shade of the huge oaks in her yard. Besides writing, she works alongside her music minister husband singing and playing the piano. She enjoys sailing, hiking, camping---almost anything outdoors. Her two grown daughters and grandkids live too far away for her liking, so she now pours all that nurturing into taking care of a fat and sassy black cat and a highly spoiled dachshund.

Trust My Heart Carol J. Post

Here is my review of this sweet novel:

First, I would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank you” to Carol J. Post and her publisher for sending me a copy of "Trust My Heart" to review for them. I am truly grateful for this generosity. I really appreciate the time, effort and expense it takes to make a reviewer copy available to me.
"Trust My Heart" by Carol J. Post is an enjoyable romance read that took me a bit of time to get into.  Grant McAllister finds himself in Murphy, North Carolina looking for answers about his father and to dispose of the estate of his deceased grandparents.   Jami Carlisle is a reporter for the local newspaper who wants to interview Grant, but he wants nothing to do with the press.

Jami’s character is very sweet.  I’d love to have a friend like her.  Grant is a likeable leading man.  The town of Murphy, North Carolina is a charming setting.  The character development wasn’t rushed like it is in so many books today.  This made the story a sweet read that really transported me to the South, where things are more laid back in rural areas.  I thoroughly enjoyed and highly recommend this novel.
