Rival Hearts is another books in the Quilts of Love series from Abingdon. I've enjoyed so many of these books.


Rival Hearts is a very light read, but the main characters are developed well, and I liked both of them.Although there is a contemporary story here, romance is the main development in this Christian fiction novel.

There isn't too much "Christian" here in a preachy way. Molly- our heroine- talks about her trust in God. And Ben- our male character- renews his faith in God as he deals with uncomfortable parts of his life story.

The story is sometimes a little choppy, and things happen rather abruptly. But, despite this it makes for a good read with an interesting story line and sweet romance.

All in all I thought Rival Hearts was a good, light read. I give it 3.5 stars an a G for content.

Disclosure: I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated in any other way, and the opinions are my own.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Tara Randel has enjoyed a lifelong love of books, especially romance and mystery genres, so it didn't come as a surprise when she began writing with the dream of becoming published. After finding Romantic Times magazine in a bookstore many years ago, she found information about writing organizations. Soon after, she joined Romance Writers of America. She located the local RWA chapter and immediately attended her first meeting. There was no stopping her after that!

Through Tampa Area Romance Authors, Tara learned all about the business of publishing, starting with the craft of writing to behind the scenes of publishing. She served as contest coordinator for four years and served as President for one year, enjoying the organization and the lasting friendships made there.

When not writing, Tara owns a business with her husband and stays busy with her two daughters. She lives on the West Coast of Florida, where gorgeous sunsets inspire the creation of heartwarming stories, filled with love, laughter and the occasional mystery. Enjoy!

ABOUT THE BOOK

Molly Henderson and Ben Weaver have been rival magazine writers for the same publishing group for years. When both come up for the same promotion, they find themselves in an unexpected competition to win the spot. Molly, editor of Quilter’s Heart, and Ben, editor of Outdoor Adventures, must switch roles, each working for the other for one month, then submit an article at the end of their quests.

Can girly-girl Molly survive the outdoor adventures that Ben has planned? Can Ben navigate the perils of the social dynamics of quilting events without destroying a valuable quilt in one short month? More importantly, in this he-said, she-said situation, will Molly and Ben give in to their attraction and fall in love, no matter who wins?
