What It’s About:
Alice Evans wants to shake things up. Two years after tragedy first brought her back to Cape Cod, she’s still going through the motions, stuck in the same old routine. She’s looking for something to get her heart racing… Something, or someone — like the handsome stranger who comes roaring into town on a classic motorcycle, turning heads and sending the summer temperatures soaring.
Jackson Kinsella isn’t looking to be tied down. A world-class photographer, he’s just in town visiting his grandfather and getting some much-needed rest and relaxation. But the mysterious brunette he meets on the Fourth of July won’t let his mind rest, and the sparks between them are anything but relaxing…
The connection between them is immediate, and soon, their romance is heating up Sweetbriar Cove. But can Alice find the strength to start over? And will Jackson’s restless spirit keep him from true love?
Fireworks light the sky and her heart when a chivalrous and handsome stranger rescues Alice after a small car accident. Her tame life is about to get exciting in Melody Grace’s Two Hearts. This is the tenth installment on the Sweetbriar Cover series of standalone romances.
After meeting, Jackson and Alice are equally attracted to one another, but can a spontaneous wanderer and an obsessive planner get along? While their physical attracting is evident from the start, these two have past issues and unfulfilled goals to workout before they could possibly know what they can give to or want from a romantic relationship.
Secondary characters have been introduced in prior novels. Their roles are small, and meant mainly to remind the reader of small town life and how everyone gets in your business in a tiny community. Two notable secondary characters are Grandpa Earl, who is a lovable curmudgeon, and Alice’s mom, Diana, who is into annoying trends like “finding joy” in inanimate objects.
I love small town romances, and Two Hearts is a charming one. The angst is minimal, the characters are likable, and the plot is straightforward. You can’t ask for much more in a lighthearted summer read. Two Hearts is an adorable addition to the Sweetbriar Cover series!
