Books from the Backlog - Heartsong Cottage

Today I'm linking up with Carole from Carole's Random Life of Books for Books from the Backlog.  I really enjoy the chance to feature a book that's been hiding in the piles of books for far too long!

Goodreads:  Heartsong Cottage by Emily March

Blurb:  Haunted by the loss of his wife and son, Daniel Garrett left the police force to devote his life to finding missing children. But he still hasn't found a way to mend the wounds of his past-until he attends a wedding in the small mountain town of Eternity Springs...and meets a beautiful, intriguing woman who offers a glimpse of something Daniel thought he'd never have again.
Shannon O'Toole isn't looking for romance. Ever since her fianc�'s death, she created a quiet life for herself restoring Victorian cottages. Still, she can't deny her attraction to the handsome, broad-shouldered stranger. Daniel makes her feel things she's hasn't felt in years-including the desire to share her secrets. But can Shannon trust a detective when doing so could bring danger to her cottage door? In Eternity Springs, anything-and everything-is possible...

Why It Needs to Come Off the Shelf: I read another Eternity Springs book at the end of 2022 and it reminded me how much I enjoy this series and this author.  Plus, this is another book that has been sitting on my NetGalley shelf for years.


  1. If only I could focus on reading down what I have...but there is always something new popping up to tempt me away from that...

  2. On the whole, I enjoyed Heartsong Cottage - except for one scene, where I thought a character behaved both inexcusably and out of character. But for the most part, it was really good. (I reviewed the book in 2015, if you're interested.) Anyway, I hope you get a chance to read it soon.
