Blog Tour - Heartbeat of the Bitterroot

About the book: Jenna Clark always tried to bury her bleak beginnings in Montana's Bitterroot Valley, but a newfound secret about her father's identity forces Jenna to dig up her past. While there, mysterious threats and dangers suddenly enter her life that bring about an unexpected man of her dreams--Michael Callahan. After a lifetime of running away from family and love will Jenna find the courage to confront her past and step forward into the future?

My review: I really enjoyed reading this book! I loved the characters, the setting, the comparison of Jenna to the Bitterroot flowers, the story. So great all the way around!

I love the way Jenna discovers her strength throughout this story. At the beginning, she's just going about her normal things. She works at Delta in Missoula, Montana and her job involves a lot of making sure other people are happy. She also has a sort of boyfriend who is a lot of work and never seems to bother to listen to anything she says. I didn't really like him. But as she deals with the curve balls she's thrown, her strength of character emerges and things seem to work out better for her. I really liked that she kicked the boyfriend to the curb and I loved how she got rid of his flowers.

I liked Michael. He was a great guy who had been through a lot and he really helped Jenna to find her own strength buried within her.

The plot has tons of suspense and the way it's written you have no idea who is targeting Jenna, or why just like she doesn't. There are tons of twists and turns and it kept me wanting to read more and more.

And the love story part was great too! I highly recommend this great book! Make sure to read it for yourself!

I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
