      3.5 stars First I have to say that Gigi wins this book I adore Brett s grandma What a fun character But she s also the source of many of the most meaningful moments in the book too She softens some of the rough patches, adds some humor when needed, and brings warmth and affection to both Brett and Mary Wade s characters.Second i need to know what happened to that cat LOL.The case isn t nearly as straightforward as I originally thought something i love in suspense novels , but there s no guessing [...]

      Rescued Hearts by Hope Toler Dougherty is a Christian romantic suspense which I really enjoyed.The novel had a fun, witty element which contrasted with the menacing air of suspense It was a light hearted read that will brighten any Autumn afternoon.Characters were well drawn and welcoming There were some wonderfully amusing moments where characters bounced off each other I loved Grandma Gigi, described as looking like Audrey Hepburn elegance combined with gun ownership.There were many themes inc [...]

      I enjoyed this good mix of romance and suspense The romance has a twist Mary Wade and Brett are forced to spend time in close proximity Feelings of romance develop but is it because of the stressful situation Can the romance be sustained when the situation changes I like the females in the novel Mary Wade and Brett s grandmother might seem like mild women but they rise to the occasion when in danger Dougherty has added the issue of parental expectations to the mix Mary Wade s parents think she s [...]

    18. Amy Bradsher on said:

      Dougherty packs the plot of Rescued Hearts full of action from the very first page to the last When I read that the main character was a clothing designer, I somehow figured the story would be mostly sweet romance, but while that element is there, Rescued Hearts is much, much That action starts off at the very beginning and rises throughout It never feels scary, which I appreciate, but Mary Wade finds herself in some really tough situations I enjoyed Brett s changing roles and the way that his [...]

      This was a wonderful romance with exciting suspense I couldn t stop reading I loved getting inside of both character s heads so we get to see what they re thinking about each other There were some great romantic moments and a lot of funny banter Mary Wade was such a stubborn and strong character, a good match for the tough Brett I loved how prayer was her first thought going into a difficult situation and that she tried to trust God even though it felt like her world was falling apart Brett had [...]

      Let s face it, Christian Suspense Romance books have pretty much gotten repetitive Strong female lead gets in trouble and is rescued by strong good looking male lead and they live happily ever after If that s your view of what Christian Suspense Romance has become, then you need to break out of the mold and read this exciting new book by Hope Toler Dougherty Yes, it starts with a strong female lead that gets rescued by a strong male lead The difference with this story is how these things happen [...]

    21. Lisa Rupertus on said:

      This is a contemporary novel which has been my genre of choice lately In this book the main character has a very scary situation come about which throws Mary Wade together with Brett Davis While the story line is intense the actual story itself is fairly light hearted and fun There is not a lot of depth to the characters and I wish they had developed them a little especially Mary Wade s character Don t get me wrong I enjoyed the story but I wish I knew of what made her tick because she was so [...]

      I will admit that the story started out really rough for me The dialogue wasn t really on point, and I started to wonder if it was independently published A lot of the beginning of this book seemed forced and didn t flow well That either changed half way through the book, or I was taken in by the story and able to ignore it By the end of the book I enjoyed what I read, but getting there took a little bit for me Mary Wade wasn t my favorite character ever, but Brett and his grandma were pretty go [...]

      Rescued Hearts by Hope Toler Dougherty was a sweet story I did get bored from time to time as I was reading but that always passed after a couple of pages, so I didn t have a hard time finishing this book like I have had with other books I really liked Brett right from the start, but Mary got on my nerves from time to time I always got annoyed at how at times she acted because I felt like she was whiny and all Brett wanted to do was keep her safe throughout the entire book She reminds me of girl [...]

      I have to admit that the cover was very creepy in my opinion It almost made me not want to read it, but I got over that The fact that it had a kitten on the cover saved the day The story was fascinating and right up my alley The story follows Mary Wade, who has been kidnapped and then rescued by a man named Brett He is an undercover agent and is adventurous They work together to avoid the enemy Of course, as you guessed, they develop feelings for each other, and things grow from there There is a [...]

      Rescued Hearts recipe Take one helpless kitten, add two criminals, mix in an undercover detective, toss a dash of an innocent bystander, gently stir disappointed parents, blend a meddlesome Gigi, add a stalker for flavor and combine to make a unique criminal caper with a satisfying side of love story.By most accounts, Mary Wade Kimball s life is rather boring, until the ill fated kitten rescue Had Mary Wade known what lies ahead, she might have simply pedaled by, without stopping to free the poo [...]

      Who would have imagined that trying to rescue a lost kitten could get a girl into so much trouble Mary Wade Kimball sure found out the hard way A storm would quickly overtake her life and it wasn t from the threatening wind and clouds that preceded an approaching hurricane Rescued Hearts quickly moved into an action and suspense filled tale with plenty of danger and romance to keep most readers turning those pages Characters were well developed and I enjoyed getting to know Mary Wade and Brett d [...]
