Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

Ever since she was a teenager, children's book author Molly Somerville has been infatuated with handsome Kevin Tucker, quarterback for her sister's Chicago Stars football team. Unfortunately, Kevin doesn't know she's alive until one fateful weekend when they're marooned together at the family vacation cabin. When Molly gets carried away by her creative imagination and compromises Kevin, the results are disastrous and before the dust settles, Kevin's in trouble with his boss, Molly's in deep trouble with her emotions and both of them are in danger of losing their hearts. Their journey to a happy ending is dicey, at best, and even if they can get past their outrageous and painful beginning, whether these two can lower their guards and let the other into their equally wary hearts, is questionable.

Bestselling author Susan Elizabeth Phillips makes her hardcover debut with This Heart of Mine, a wonderful contemporary tale that features two familiar faces from prior novels as the hero and heroine. The characters are complicated, with difficult pasts that have shaped the adults they now are, and Phillips uses a deft touch in sketching their personal growth as they're tested with tragedy and bound together with love and a healthy dose of humour. As always, Phillips brings her delightful wit and a warm family setting to this novel that is sure to captivate readers. --Lois Faye Dyer

I absolutely loved this book and read it in two days, unable to put it down and yet not wanting to finish it at the same time. This was the first book of Susan Elizabeth Phillips that I have read and can't wait to read more. I really enjoyed the bantering and playfulness between the main characters Kevin and Molly and the chemistry that they shared was fantastic. I have to say that my favourite author of all time is Judith MacNaught and until recently had not found anyone to match her until I discovered SEP!

4.0 out of 5 stars Relaxing and funny 2 May 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In terms of romantic novels, Susan E. Phillips really is one of the best. She writes funny dialogues and gives you a view of how her characters think that is very realistic. Haven't you ever found yourself looking in the mirror talking to yourself? That is how her characters talk to you.
Molly, the main character, actually the sister of Phoebe from It Had To Be You, goes through infatuation, anger and fear to get to the man she loves. Ever had your heart broken so badly you couldn't get out of bed in the morning? So does Molly. And she stays in bed until Kevin comes to get her for some well-deserved R&R. Of course, he also happens to be the one who actually caused her hear to break, so...
Molly is no push-over, even though she has inherited from her sister the weird habit of dragging her little mutt around everywhere she goes.
The dialogue is a killer and sets this novel apart from any other romantic novel stuff. I found myself laughing out loud at three a.m. with this book. Very good book if you need to relax and feel good!

5.0 out of 5 stars Return to form 15 Mar 2002
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
A return to form: sharper and funnier and, despite the 'bunny' sections, a good deal less sentimental than her last book, which was deeply disappointing.

2.0 out of 5 stars I have issues 14 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
1* - if we are basing this book on that ~thing~ which happened near the beginning. That ~thing~ that should never ever ever be in ANY book, least of all a romance! The ~thing~ which is so horrifying it cannot be named and I prefer not to think about it.

However, after that ~thing~, the book did get better and was, in parts, actually enjoyable but that ~thing~ means it cannot rise above 2* for me. Sadly I lost all respect for Molly after the ~thing~ and I definitely didn't feel any empathy for her and her situation.

Finally, please please please can someone tell me whether there is a way to tell whether a SEP is going to be an amazing 5* read or an absolutely infuriating disappointment? Because the way I see it, reading this series is like a rollercoaster.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable 13 Mar 2002
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this, particularly as it re-introduced characters from previous books. However, the main premise of the plot left something to be desired. I found it difficult to believe and sympathise with Molly's actions at the beginning of the book but things improved. On the whole, I'm glad I bought and read this but it's not one of SEP's best.
