Heart of the Matter (5/5)

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.

  1. It sounds like a good one Melissa. I've liked the author's work in the past, so I'll have to keep this one in mind and look for a copy.

  2. I think it was my favorite of hers--I've read all of hers except Love the One You're With (or whatever it is called.)

  3. I keep hearing great things about Giffin's work and really want to try one of her books one day. (I found you through your Strut Your Shelves post on Kris's blog.)
