If there were a course in screwing up your life, Kate Spivey would get an A+.
Trust is in short supply for Kate at the start of the summer before her senior year of college. Her parents sentenced her to spend it under the watchful eye of her aunt at the famous Willoughby Inn. It was further proof that she was a prisoner in, and not the decision maker of, her life. Nothing she does is good enough to prove that she learned from the mistakes of her past.
Almost immediately, Kate finds that her new summer home holds another person who understands the unfairness of her situation better than most. Reed Black has had his own share of tragedy and regrets, but instead of trying to fight his reputation, he embraced it.
Sparks fly between Kate and Reed, but his mixed signals remind Kate that she needs to watch her step. He is one temptation she can't afford to indulge in, no matter how strong her attraction to him. If she isn't careful, she'll lose more than her heart. (Thanks to GoodReads.com for the summary)
My Thoughts –
‘Where My Heart Breaks’ is a beautiful story about love and the transition to adulthood.
Kate gets sent to stay with an Kate in the middle of nowhere to help out for the summer to run a B&B. She hates it, she resists it and she resents it – that is until she meets Reed, again. I wasn’t sure about Kate at first. She was a bit of a wild child but I think meeting Reed was good for her in the best way possible. Reed is just about the awesomest guy ever. He tries so hard to resist her, but just can’t seem to get her out of his head. Millie and Sam were great as well.
I really enjoyed the tie in of the novel in the book that was written so long before Kate ever arrived. It was a very interesting focal point in the book – it worked very well.
