Heart of the Matter (5/5)
Nick and Tessa are married with 2 young children. Nick is a great plastic surgeon; Tessa is a stay at home mom. Nick's new patient, Charlie, is a young boy with burns to his face and his hand. Valerie is Charlie's mother--she is a single mom and a lawyer. She and Nick form a strong connection and they find themselves falling for each other. Told in alternating chapters from the point of views of Tessa and Valerie, this book tells a tale of love and problems. I expected to hate some characters and root for others but I really ended up caring for all three. A great read. I borrowed this book from my public library.
