Love Heals the Heart Reviews
A Must Read!
By Danielle Urban on December 16, 2015
Love Heals the Heart by Diane Rose Duffy is a must have for
all readers. A romance quite unlike any other that I have read. It's packed
full of everything readers would find in many other genres. Adventure, romance,
humor, mystery and much more all can be found in this delightful yet
beautifully well-written story.
Readers will find themselves lost in the tragic situation of
both protagonists. Suspense builds up with every page. Their survival is a must
yet the hopes of it coming true look slim. A woman, who yearns for the right
man to settle down with forever. She finds herself with a man, who suffered
pain in the past and needs some healing. Can a spirited young woman like Gracie
help Dylan to let go and move on? Or will they both have bigger problems like
surviving their camping trip?
Love Heals the Heart is the first novel, that I have read by
Diane Rose Duffy. Her chacracters will tug at readers hearts. It's difficult to
not fall hard for the characters. Life has many lessons that it teaches us, and
the human heart takes the biggest hit. Readers will laugh and and cry, after
reading this brilliant mind-blowing romance novel. Diane Rose Duffy's words
have a way of enticing every reader, to her fictional world. I loved reading
this, and I highly recommend Love Heals the Heart to readers world wide
Another beautiful book from this author!!

Diane Rose Duffy has done
I love a good romantic
comedy with a side of snark, sexiness, and drama. This book has it all!
Gracie is a first grade
teacher that has always dreamed about finding the perfect man that just gives
her "the look" and she's a puddle of goo on the floor. Who knew that
would be in the form of a rugged detective who happens to catch her with her
Trust me! It's a
"He is the living,
breathing picture of what most women would refer to as, man candy. This guy has
it going on and is probably fully aware of it."
Dylan is a detective on a
mission. He's not looking for love. He gave that up a long time ago and never
looked back. But there is just something about this spunky, little, blonde
spitfire that he can't turn away from. Life was about to get interesting.
"Gracie was sending
up all the red flags, yet I keep finding myself drawn to her as if she is my
lifeline...Gracie, get ready, because here I come!"
One of my favorite things
about romance novels is watching two people slowly fall for each other. Gracie
and Dylan are no exception.
I love that it wasn't
just an "insta-love" situation. Yes, there was instant attraction,
but there was some cat and mouse play that was very entertaining! I found
myself swooning, as much as laughing.
I love Diane's writing! I
feel like I'm watching a movie as I'm reading. Does that make sense? I can
picture everything/everyone perfectly.
"I think you may
well be addicting, Gracie Watson."
"I encourage that. Anytime
and anyplace, Dylan Sanders."
Along with their best
buds, Trish and Justin, this was a wonderful book! I can not tell you how many
times I laughed out loud at the antics between Trish and Justin! They were
"sparks and kindling" at it's best!
This book had heart and
soul! It had humor, a little suspense, swoon-worthy moments, and beautiful
scenes that make you appreciate the little things in life.
It's a perfect read if
you love stories about friendship, forgiveness, loyalty, and love. Can not wait
for the next one!!!
Beautiful book, Diane!

"Yes you are."

This is a must read. I
know a lot of you out there have a huge TBR pile but you need to put this one
to the top. This is the second book by Diane Rose Duffy and when you read this
book you will not believe it is not her 10th. I couldn't put this book down.
Her writing just flows and makes you fall easily into these characters.
The relationship between
Gracie and Detective Dylan is instant even after an embarrassing start:) They
both have a lot of emotional baggage to get through before they can truly be in
a real committed relationship. But when they are together, OMG! they send out
sparks through the pages.
Gracie loves her family
but like a lot of us she has some rather interesting relatives. For example,
Aunt Irma is an outspoken, spunky, tell it like it is no holds bar woman. I
laughed so hard because I know we all have an Aunt Irma in our families.
Now to Trish, Gracie's
best friend since childhood. I loved Trish and her loud, foul mouth. She could
put a sailor to shame with her mouth. Especially the fireworks between her and
Justin, Dylan's detective partner. They have a bumpy road ahead. You just have
to read to see how this one plays out:) Believe me you won't be disappointed.
There are just so many
characters to mention that make a huge impact on Gracie, Dylan, Trish, and
Justin's path. For example, Doug, Gracie's brother, or Charlotte the harlot an
enemy since childhood and last but not least Nick, Gracie's ex boyfriend.
I cannot say enough about
this book. If you need a belly laugh, romance, a good cry, or adventure you
need to read this amazing book. I can't wait to pick up her next novel. Thank
you for this great book! Love, love, loved it.
