THIS HEART OF MINE

CCH-CUSTFRAME-1I can’t describe the feeling I get every time a book of mine releases. I’m over the moon, but always apprehensive. After all, I want to put out a book my fans will love. This Heart of Mine releases today, and I know you’re gonna love this one! As I have said before, this book is probably the most personal book I’ve ever written. I always put some of me, my life and the people I know into each book, but with This Heart of Mine, I really plagiarized from my life—BIG TIME!

You see, I know how Leah felt facing death, knowing if she didn’t get a heart transplant (which was unlikely) that she would die. My husband needed a new kidney several years ago. Because of the damage dialysis did to his heart, it wasn’t likely he’d get a transplant either. But then we got “the call,” the one telling us there was a donor, the one that saved his life. My husband got his kidney transplant. That kidney also came with some wild dreams.  For several days after his transplant, my husband had a recurring dream: he’d wake up and an older man would be staring him in the face. When we found out the donor was a sixty-five year old man, it gave us goose bumps!  So when Leah starts having dreams about her heart donor after the transplant, well that’s a page from the book of our life.  But there’s where Leah’s story becomes her own, because her dreams come with a mystery to solve.  With the help of her donor’s cute twin brother, Matt, Leah sets off to solve a murder, and maybe fall in love and learns to live again along the way.

So, I hope you’ll pick up a copy of This Heart of Mine. You can order your copy today at AmazonBarnes & NobleBooks-A-MillionPowell’s, Indiebound and iBooks.

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?

  1. I loved this story. It encompasses so many emotions and then adds the hauntingly beautiful side-story of a type of soul touch, after the donor is gone. To know it borrowed from a real life experience makes it even more haunting.

  2. I love Leah and Kevin. Was a huge King of Queens fan, could have watched that show ten more seasons had it continued that longall that said, I started watching Kevin can wait because of Kevin James. I hoped to see the antics that made him, him. From episode one of Kevin Can wait, I got it. Didn”t love the Donna character in the beginning but came to think she was a perfect fit after watching the show and knew I”d be back for more. The first season produced deep laughs that were way and real. During the second season, I felt myself forcing laughs. I don”t think the absence of laughs in the second season was due to the Donna leaving, just something is off. I will definitely give the show all of season two in hopes that it will once again find it”s footing. Huge Leah and Kevin fan. I”m sure those two will deliver. coupon
