In Every Heartbeat. Kim Vogel Sawyer. Bethany House Publishers. September 2010. Paperback. 352 pages.
I actually enjoyed this book a little more than I thought I would. I was unfamiliar with the author, so I wasn't sure if I'd like her writing style. The book description had me thinking WWI would be a bigger part of the story, but I was disappointed to find out that it wasn't. The romance between two of the characters was sweet and I enjoyed seeing where their close friendship went. Although the book had a slow start, it picked up about 200 pages in and I became a lot more interested in where the story was going for these characters. There were a few times when the situations were unrealistic, but other times I found what they were going through to be very relatable. Without having to read the first book, I was able to follow along just fine and I thought it was a good read. This is a sweet, relaxing, well written novel and I'd say anyone who likes historical fiction with a little romance mixed in would enjoy it.
My Rating: 3/5 stars
