What People Are Saying About Heartstrings


“Its well written and…a great story that’s more than just a gentle romance but has angst and emotions in and lots of twists to keep reader wondering what’s going to come out next. All the endings tie in neatly – I hate books where I’m left wondering “yes, but what happened about ….” Sara doesn’t do that – she lets all the plots merge and become part of the whole with us learning what was behind the deceptions and motives of the major players…”

“This was indeed a well written, well edited book.  In the end, it was worth all the anxiety, the surprises, The pleasure, the sadness, the joy, the disappointment and the anger I felt as I read.  This is not just a book for cowboy lovers like me.  This is a book for anyone who has loved someone and hoped and prayed for a second chance to be the person they want to be. What else can I tell you but you need to read this book and let it play on your heartstrings.  😉 5/5 Stars (I’d give it more if I could!) and 4/5 Flames!…”

“It is all about trust and repair. It will reveal so many darn secrets you will actually gasp out loud! I pretty much guarantee it! Aside from the family secrets and his Mom, who he never really knew, committing suicide, Seth has more in store. The confessions and scandalous behavior involving Mike, the sheriff will blow you away. I really mean it is a big must read!”

“I really enjoyed this book and have always been a closet rockstar reader! Seth is complicated. I liked him but at the same time I hated him. Life is never easy and he took the coward’s way out for a very long time.

Abby has always felt the pain of not fitting in and she made some touch choices at a young age. You can’t fault her for following her heart and doing what she thought was right. I have to say that I had no idea the twists and turns this story was going to take! Mike was not the man that we all thought he was going to be.

Love a good rockstar story and this one is a keeper!”

This was a great second chance love story. It had all the makings of a good heart touching, soul redeeming story. Then the author makes your toes curl and your knees go weak. Damn this book is sexy! Add all that up plus add one hellish twist and crazy suspense turn. Wow! Honestly, jaw drop type of moment. Good guys aren’t always good! Things you think are true are all lies!

Sometimes things can work out, but damn it’s one sad country song in the making getting there. Take the time to read this book. It will make you hot under the collar and believe in love all at once…”

Another new-to-me author with the skill to transport me into her world and transfer me into one of her characters. Heartstrings was a great romance. I loved it!”

When Seth comes back for his father’s funeral, sparks fly. Anger, hurt, resentfulness, jealousy, love, and lust rear their heads as the two former loves meet again fourteen years later. Seth knows who Emily’s father is and it isn’t Mike as everyone in town believes. Seth wants to get to know his daughter. Mike and Abby fear that Seth will tell Emily along with the world the truth. The tangle of lies finally unravel as Seth and Abby discover there is more behind their estrangement then they thought. The reader knows that something is driving Mike to make sure the secret is kept. I was shocked at what was really going on. It was an interesting twist and a great ending to the book…”

 “The love story between these two was phenomenal. They had chemistry, sexual attraction, and a troubled past. It has all the basic ingredients for a good read. Then you throw in a blackmailing ex-husband, a superstar ex-girlfriend, and more lies and secrets than you can count and you have yourself a 4 star book! I loved every second of this read. Yes at times I was frustrated and mad. But I love when an author is able to pull that kind of emotion out of me. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a book that has humor, drama, lies, love, betrayal and really hot sex!…”

 “Seth, Abby and Emily pulled me in. I was happy the author jumped on most of the secrets right away. No one wants to read a book that draws everything out. Now saying that doesn’t mean the author gave you everything, leaving nothing for the ending, because she didn’t. She keeps her story moving from page to page, ending with a bang. This is a very easy, well written story that is well worth your time…”

“What a great, quick read Heartstrings is!! I read this book in one sitting and could not put it down. We have read our share of bad boy rockers, but how many stories have a super sexy country superstar as the town bad boy? Heartstrings does exactly what its title suggests… it pulls on your heart strings and makes you feel for the characters and understand why they make the decisions that they make…..Heartstrings is an incredible story about first love, making dreams come true, and healing. I give this story 4 stars on the knock my socks off scale! I loved Seth from the get go and was hoping like crazy that him and Abby would reunite and make a family with their daughter…”

“Heartstrings is full of emotion, heartbreak, lies, and deception. The characters were well rounded and I fell in love with Seth, Abby, and Emily. I laughed, I cried, I got angry, and this story took me on a wild ride that tugged on my own heartsrings. I couldn’t put it down!

Heartsrings is highly recommended from this reviewer! Who doesn’t love a good second chance story filled with music, laughter, and love?…”
