“This novella is the e·starter to Novak’s Hanover House Chronicles. The premise is on exciting one, dealing with the makeup of the minds of psychopaths. There is violence in this installment, and the glow of a budding romance. Novak writes on excellent buildup, enticing the reader lo continue with the remainder of the series. It promises to be a real thriller.“ — Donna M. Brown, RT Book Reviews Magazine
“This emotional novel showcases Novak’s exceptional talent at creating genuine characters and real-life situations we sometimes try to dodge. The power of family is strong, and the element of mystery is stable throughout this romance. Fairham Island is painted as a picturesque seaside town, but the debut to this series could have readers believing there are a lot of buried secrets and stories to be told surrounding the residents’ wishes for peace and quiet. Completely engrossing with a twist at the end you wouldn’t dare dream of!” — Jamie A. Geraldi, RT Book Reviews
“With great sensitivity and an exquisite flair for characterization, Novak explores the ideas of redemption, forgiveness, and the healing power of love. This Heart of Mine is a potently emotional, powerfully life-affirming contemporary romance that can be read and enjoyed on its own, but it also serves as an excellent addition to Novak’s popular Whiskey Creek series.” —Booklist, STARRED review
“A courageous, humble heroine intent on getting on with her life, a hero torn between his feelings and others’ expectations, and a surprisingly mature teen make this another engrossing addition to Novak’s addictive series.” — Library Journal, STARRED review
“Novak’s Whiskey Creek novels are a favorite among romance readers because of their small-town charm and sweet storylines. This delightful novel in particular tugs on the heartstrings hard with its focus on family and second chances. Many will find a true connection with the characters from the get-go and invite these newfound friends into their homes, hoping they’ll never depart. Novak never disappoints.” — 4.5 stars, RT Book Reviews
