  • Michelle, a divorced mother of two preschool children living in a Minneapolis suburb, maintains her subscription to her hometown newspaper. So when she bumps into childhood friend David, she already knew he was successful and a bachelor, but what the paper forgot to mention was how he had matured into a handsome man.

    Memories of their past resurface, and once more, she envisions playing house with him. Although this time it's the adult-rated version, where he's selling software that threatens her job, her co-workers refuse to play nice, her ex-husband is acting just plain weird and the hometown paper is in an uproar over who is sending her flowers and who she should date. Michelle doesn’t know whom to believe until she steps back and looks deep within and trusts her heart.

    130 pages, sweet

    Excerpt:

    The rehearsed lines vanished as my vision drank in the sight of a drop-dead gorgeous man three feet from me. I sucked in my stomach and stood taller. My professional demeanor wrestled with curiosity as I strained to keep my gaze on his handsome face. Inquisitiveness won.

    Broad shoulders, flat stomach, strong, muscular legs, polished shoes and large hands--

    "Excuse me, miss. If you're quite done, I'm looking for Mr. Humphrey's office."

    A trace of laughter filled his deep, sensual voice. My eyes widened. "David Lindstrom?"

    His gaze narrowed. "Michelle Mason?"

    My heart thumped. The handsome man in front of me was David. He looked different from the teenager who had shared a locker beside mine for four years. Back then, he wore nothing but faded denim overalls, white stained t-shirts, work boots and a baseball cap, but the smile was the same.

    He clasped my hand and drew me closer.

    I leaned close and sniffed twice. He certainly didn't smell like the farm boy who came to school more times than not smelling like manure. His scent was clean, crisp and all male. "You smell wonderful."

    His arms wrapped around me, and his chest rumbled with laughter. "You were always the honest one."

    The warmth of his embrace was like chocolate to a dieter, and my arms tightened possessively. Guilt and the desire to take a little nibble had me rocking back and forth in his embrace. His arms tightened.

    Strength and the comfort were the two words that came to mind as the tension drained from my muscles and my head fell wearily to his shoulder. Sweet, farm boy David rubbed my back, his breath was warm and suddenly thoughts of comfort spun out of control and images of his hands roaming over my body, his lips kissing me.

Review: WOW!!!! I am not sure if I have ever wanted to slap so many secondary characters in my life! Ms Columbus, you have done such a fabulous job creating the emotions for this story that I wanted to jump into the pages and wring the necks of a couple of the nasty people who were total jerks to Michelle.

Both main characters were so wonderful. Emotion ran rampant and more than once I experienced the emotion right along with them. When I read a story that can do that, I am at a loss for words. The beginning, middle and end left me a very satisfied reader. *Snaps* for a job well done and a toast for more to come from this talented author :)

    Night Owl Review Top Pick

    Trust Your heart is a motto that Michelle keeps telling herself yet she cannot keep it. Divorced and with children to help grow up she is tired of people setting her up with men. All she wants is someone to love, listen and be there for her. She thought she found the man in her husband but like all other men he cheated on her. Meeting an old flame definitely makes her feel like a woman. That’s something that has been missing in her life for some years. She is not sure why of all times David would appear and wreak havoc in her life. Michelle had a big crush on him yet now as a woman she must decide if she can risk having love again in her life.

    Trust Your Heart is a sweet tale of second chances. This is one that will enchant you. I loved that Michelle was an average middle-aged woman who has dealt with divorce and betrayal yet still is strong throughout the whole ordeal. This book definitely keeps your attention and I enjoyed the suspense of waiting to find out who gets Michelle’s heart…the new guy or the old guy. Loved it.

        Trust Your Heart was a sweet read that held my interest until the end. Christine has a great knack for injecting clever dialogue between her characters which I throughly enjoyed.
