Hannah’s Heart by Marnie L. Pehrson

With that one waltz, Hannah almost came to believe that Ephraim Marston took her seriously that she was more than a little girl tripping him up and irritating him. With the way he fixed his eyes upon hers and held her in his arms, she felt like a woman for the first time in her life, and a confidence that she’d never known filled her soul. Then, as if a storm brewed within him, Ephraim’s expression grew worrisome. The music stopped, he mumbled his thanks, turned and exited the ballroom, leaving Hannah standing there wondering what she had done to set him off this time.

I picked this up because it was part of the Love Notes Collection and recommended by Marcia Lynn McClure. I’ve read 3 of the books in this “Romance You Can Trust” collection and have loved them.
Hannah’s Heart is a really was a cute story and it’s a clean read. Unfortunately I just didn’t get swept away. Too much happened in too short of a time and it felt a little flat to me. Not enough time was taken to develop the romance between the characters. The potential was there for a great romance but it ended up being just a nice story.
If found it interesting to note it is based on the author’s ancestors. I wished I’d know that before I read the book.
I liked Hannah’s Heart enough that I will try another one of Marnie L. Pehrson’s books since I know she writes clean romance. I think I’ll read Angel and the Enemy next.
Content: This is a clean read. There is nothing objectionable at all. Written for women but appropriate for ages 13+.
Rating: 3.5 Stars. It was a good book and I worth the hour and a half it took to read it.
