Wayward Hearts

GIVEAWAY

MASON, SUSAN ANNE
WAYWARD HEARTS

Hairstylist Maxi North is living her dream in Manhattan, poised to become junior partner in one of the city's classiest salons. Her father's death puts her plans on hold while she travels home to face her past. There, she is forced to confront unrequited feelings for her former best friend, Jason Hanley, as well as her deeply buried guilt over her younger brother's death. Fireman-in-training, Jason Hanley knows how badly Rainbow Falls needs its own fire station. As a new Christian, he pledges to serve the people of his community and to open a fire station as soon as possible. When his friend, Maxi North, and her mother almost perish in a fire, Jason becomes involved in helping them re-build their farmhouse. Soon he finds himself wondering if he and Maxi can ever put aside their differences to find a future together.

My Review:

Mason delivers a gritty love story full of twists and turns and unexpected detours that will keep you on the edge of your seat. The rawness of Maxi's unrequited love is so heartbreaking. Coming face to face with the man she's loved for years sets her world upside down at a time when she is already dealing with way too much. Jason just wants to try to salvage their once strong friendship and love unexpectedly follows. But so does a ton of complications -- enough to give a dedicated reader gray hairs! This one kept me on my toes right to the very end.  Thankfully, love triumphs allowing this fragile reader's heart to rejoice at last.
