The Hearts We Mend Review

My Thoughts:
I missed the first book in this series so I was worried I wouldn't know what was going on, but I really shouldn't have worried, the story stood alone completely. I LOVED this story. I laughed and cried, and cried and laughed. Evie was the model of a Christian women's ministry leader. Put together, lovely and soft-spoken, she exudes confidence. I want to be Evie when I grow up :-). My heart hurt for Jack as he tried so hard to keep his brother's little family from falling apart. Such a beautiful story of sacrificial giving of yourself. 5 stars from this reviewer.

About the book: 

The Hearts We Mend 
Planning and Post-It notes are the epitome of Evie's life. But when she meets Jack, her life gets more than a little complicated.

Thirteen years ago, Evie's firefighter husband was killed in the line of duty, leaving her to raise their young son, Cody, alone. Now, Cody is marrying the love of his life, and as he packs up his belongings, the house feels as empty as Evie's heart. But for all her planning and mad organizational skills, Evie could never have anticipated the dramatic shift her life is about to make.

Tattooed, rough-around-the-edges Jack raises quite a few eyebrows in the tight-knit community of Banister Falls. Where Evie's life is stream-lined, Jack's approach to living is moment-by-moment. But as Evie gets drawn into Jack's world---a world that isn't as safe or predictable as the one she's worked so hard to create---he challenges her to open her eyes to the problems outside the walls of the church.

Jack doesn't make Evie feel comfortable, but he definitely makes her feel something. Something she hasn't felt since Max passed away---or, maybe ever. Because even though Jack isn't anything like her late husband, he just might be everything she needs.
