Hope Toler Dougherty's 'Rescued Hearts' Blog Tour and Kindle Giveaway {book review}

About the book

Children’s clothing designer Mary Wade Kimball’s soft spot for animals leads to a hostage situation when she spots a briar- entangled kitten in front of an abandoned house. Beaten, bound, and gagged by the two thugs inside, Mary Wade loses hope for escape when a third villain returns with supplies.

Discovering the kidnapped woman ratchets the complications for undercover agent Brett Davis. Weighing the difference of ruining his three months’ investigation against the woman’s safety, Brett forsakes his mission and helps her escape, the bent-on-revenge brutes following behind.

When Mary Wade’s safety is threatened once more, Brett rescues her again. This time, her personal safety isn’t the only thing in jeopardy. Her heart is endangered as well.

What I thought about the book

The first thing that captured my attention about Rescued Hearts was the kitten on the front cover. I knew my 24-year-old daughter would want to read it. Turns out it was a decoy (in more ways than one! <grin>). My daughter did read it before I did. We both found that it grabbed our attention from the beginning!

One part of the story hit a little close to home for me. Mary Wade felt like her parents' love was conditional, and that they weren't proud of her because she chose a different path than they wanted for her. Sadly, I somewhat know how that feels, because that's how it seems, where my father is concerned.

If you like suspense, with a bit of romance thrown in, you will definitely want to check this out. And I look forward to reading more books by Hope Toler Dougherty.
