Reviewed by Trudi LoPreto for Readers' Favorite

Linney has left her family and New Jersey behind and moved to Venture, Colorado, running away from a romance that went very bad. She planned to never fall in love again and just work hard at being a third grade teacher, riding her horse, and enjoying her new life. Linney’s neighbor is Stonewall (aka “Stone”) and his young son Beau. His wife has recently died and he too has vowed to never fall in love again. Beau quickly wins Linney’s heart as she slowly becomes a part of his life. Stone and Linney both agree that they can be friends, but nothing more and soon are faced with decisions as to their relationship. Accidents on horseback, in cars, and a lost little boy put the pair into difficult situations with decisions to be made. God, second chances, and the local pastor help to play a large part in deciding their fates.

Stone’s Heart is a charming, sweet Christian romance that will bring joy to your heart and put a smile on your face. Stone’s Heart is a perfect read. I found myself falling in love with Stone and little Beau the more I read. Author Darby Karchut really understands how to build a romance and share the love of God without overkill or inappropriate sex scenes. I cannot say enough good things about Stone’s Heart; it is a must-read – it will give the young hope for their own romantic futures and bring back memories of happy days for senior readers.
