Publisher:  Barbour Books

My rating is 5 out of 5 stars.

Each novel in the “My Heart Belongs” series is a stand-alone with unique tales, characters, faith and romance.  The books in the series are as follows:  My Heart Belongs in Fort Bliss, Texas; My heart Belongs in the Superstition Mountains; My Heart Belongs in Ruby City, Idaho; My Heart Belongs on Mackinac Island; My Heart Belongs in the Shenandoah Valley; My Heart Belongs in Castle Gate, Utah; My Heart Belongs in Niagara Falls, New York; My Heart Belongs in San Francisco, California, with the latest being My Heart Belongs in Glenwood Springs, Colorado.

Each book is published by Barbour and written by various talented authors.  Therefore, readers can pick any of the above titles and delve right into a wonderfully captivating story.  I should tell you that two more books will be added to the series this summer and winter.

In the tale I just finished, set in the year 1888, a young lady named Millie is learning how to be a nurse.  Millie believes she has left her past on the East Coast and has come to start afresh in Colorado.  She hopes the pain of the past doesn’t rear its ugly head, but alas it isn’t meant to be or is it?  John Drexler moved his mother from a smoky town to the mountains in hopes she will be more comfortable and less sickly with her asthma.

What neither character sees is that Millie and John might be meant to have a future together.  If Millie can care for his mother without the belittling the woman spews on Millie or if John can keep his brother taking care of his responsibilities without running off and leaving others in a mess.  Here is another book that I thoroughly enjoyed and easily got lost in while pulling for what I hoped would be a perfect ending.

If you are looking for a book with just the right flavor of faith and romance, not too long and not too short, and at the end you sigh with satisfaction, then look no further.  These are books to read, share with others and then grab the next one when it is released.  I hope you can catch up before the last two books are published, but even if not, read and thoroughly enjoy this one!
