Book Review

Reviewed by Ray Simmons for Readers' Favorite

Two Hearts Undone by Tamara Ferguson is romance at its best. The writing is great and well balanced. Every aspect of Two Hearts Undone is very well crafted. From the beautiful setting in Crystal Rock, Wisconsin, to the details and problems of running the Crystal Visions rehabilitation center, Tamara Ferguson guides us through the lives and hearts of the two main characters, Melinda McDaniel and Steven Ryder. I instantly liked both of these characters and wanted them to get together and be happy. They are good people doing noble work for all the right reasons. Their hearts have indeed become undone by past tragedy and there is no guarantee that they can put the past in its proper place so that they can relax, love again, and make each other happy.

Tamara Ferguson has a deft hand when it comes to writing romance. She chooses her words and scenes carefully so that the reader never forgets that romance doesn't always come easy in the real world. Sometimes it may need a little help from a magical setting, a good friend, or an innocent child. What I liked most about Two Hearts Undone was the sensitivity and care with which Tamara Ferguson crafted each scene and interaction as she guided Mel and Steve towards a very satisfying conclusion. I grew up in a small town and I also liked Ms Ferguson’s portrayal of the closeness and warmth of small town America at its best. Two Hearts Undone is an excellent read, especially if you need to renew your faith in romance.

Two Hearts Undone: Two Hearts Wounded Warrior Romance, Book 3 is a new adult military romance novella written by Tamara Ferguson. Melinda McDaniel, an RN, and Steve Ryder, an ex-Navy medic and physical therapist, are both working at Crystal Visions, a residential school for the impaired. They've been trying to avoid each other and not give in to the feelings they have been developing for each other since the day they met. Melinda is still grieving over the wartime death of her fiance, Hawk, and Steve's wife, Amy, died of cancer at about the same time as Hawk died. It's been three years now since the two of them met while Steve was helping Luke, a wounded pilot and Hawk's best friend, with his rehabilitation. Steve's been wondering when Melinda would be ready to date again, and he's been gathering up the courage to ask her out. When he finally does, she seems astonished that he would ask her, and then, remembering Hawk, she turned away, fighting back tears. Steve cursed himself for rushing the process, but somehow he knew the two of them would find a way to be together.

Tamara Ferguson's new adult military romance novella, Two Hearts Undone, is the third book in the Two Hearts Wounded Warrior Romance series, and I quickly felt like I was reading about old friends from the previous books. An excerpt from Two Hearts Surrounded, the first book in the series is included with this novella, and I found it quite helpful for refreshing my recollections of that story. The author's characters are well-drawn and believable, and watching as these two grieving souls finally allow themselves to consider a future is heartwarming. I especially enjoyed their outing to the beach at Dragonfly Pointe with young Ben, a disabled boy who was learning to adapt to using his new prosthetics. Two Hearts Undone is a sweet romance and is suitable for young as well as new adults. It's highly recommended.

Two Hearts Undone by Tamara Ferguson is set against the backdrop of a town in Crystal Rock, Wisconsin. Melinda McDaniel and Steven Ryder work at Crystal Visions, which is a school and residence with a section for the wounded heroes returning from war. Steve is ex-Navy and Melinda, who is a nurse, have dedicated their lives to these wounded warriors who need care and help to recover from their personal losses. Both Steve and Melinda are good friends and they have known each other for three years; both have suffered losses in their personal lives. Though they are attracted to each other, they keep denying their feelings. Will Steve and Melinda finally give in to their feelings and fall in love?

I found the story simple and heartwarming with believable situations and characters that will connect well with readers. Both Melinda and Steve will remain in the hearts of readers for a long, long time. The hope and the eagerness to connect with one another make this love story palpable and real. It is well written and all characters are well-sketched, which makes it a compelling and fast paced love story to enchant readers. The descriptions are detailed and vivid, and make the scenes, the characters, and their emotions come alive. The open ending of the story will make readers look forward to the next volume to know more about the romance between Steve and Melinda.
