A new heart saved her life—but will it help her find out what really happened to its donor?Seventeen-year-old Leah MacKenzie is heartless. An artificial heart in a backpack is keeping her alive. However, this route only offers her a few years. And with her rare blood type, a transplant isn’t likely. Living like you are dying isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. But when a heart becomes available, she’s given a second chance at life. Except Leah discovers who the donor was — a boy from her school — and they’re saying he killed himself. Plagued with dreams since the transplant, she realizes she may hold the clues to what really happened.
Matt refuses to believe his twin killed himself. When Leah seeks him out, he learns they are both having similar dreams and he’s certain it means something. While unraveling the secrets of his brother’s final moments, Leah and Matt find each other, and a love they are terrified to lose. But life and even new hearts don’t come with guarantees. Who knew living, took more courage than dying?
This Heart of Mine is a haunting, poignant tale about living and dying, surviving grief, guilt, and heartache, while discovering love and hope in the midst of sadness.
Received a copy from NetGalley for an honest review
C.C. Hunter is one of my favorite authors, so when I saw she had a new book coming out I had to try to get it. I loved the Shadow Falls series.
This was different than what she normally writes, and OMG it was great! I loved this book!
From our first introduction to Leah and Matt, I was hooked. I had to know how this story would end. I felt like I was going through the emotions and every twist and turn with the characters. I wept and was also on the edge of my seat.
Leah was real. She made you feel as if you were her best friend. You went through every feeling with her. From her living day to day, to her aftermath of her getting more time with her new heart.
Matt oh Matt. My heart went out to him. He lost his dad and brother close together.
I loved the relationship between him and Leah. I was scared that he was going to be dependent on her because of the heart plot, but that didn’t happen and I’m glad.
This book has romance, suspense, and a coming of age story. If you thinking about picking this book up just do it, you won’t regret it!
