Review Tour: Fated Hearts by Becky Flade

Fated Hearts
by Becky Flade


GENRE:  romantic suspense



Psychiatrist Henley Elliott fled her quiet life in Cleveland for a gypsy lifestyle, trying to stay one step ahead of her painful memories. When she breaks down in quirky little Trappers' Cove, Minnesota, she meets Sheriff Carter McAlister - a man healing from his own share of hidden heartbreaks. 

At the request of a friend, Carter offers Henley a job to help her get back on her feet . . . but soon he can't resist trying to sweep the intriguing woman off them. Breaking through her carefully built shell proves to be a near-impossible task, and to make matters worse, a dangerous new presence in the Cove seems to be targeting Henley. They must learn to trust in each other in order to keep her safe. 

Can Henley and Carter leave their secrets and scars in the past to get a second chance at happily ever after?


Excerpt Three:

“It’s not like that. Carter and I are friends. Just friends.”

“I know you were out at his place the other night. I thought—”

“It’s not like that,” she emphasized.

“Yes, it is,” Carter corrected, strolling into the room. “Hey, Doug. Morning, Doc.”
She looked around for an object to throw at him. From the wink Carter threw her way, she guessed he had a good idea of exactly what her intentions were. He wasn’t that charming. She refused to smile.

“No, it’s not,” Henley argued. Doug stood there, his expression miserable. The grin Carter wore implied he found her amusing. She eyeballed the stapler and wondered how much damage it could inflict if propelled.

“You know, Doc, hitting an officer of the law is as much a criminal act here as it is in Cleveland.” Yeah, he had her number.

“Take off that star then.” Turning up her nose, she sat with as much dignity as she could muster.

My Review:
I wish I could give this book more then 5 stars. I really fell deeply into the book. I couldn't put it down. I was roped into immediately and honestly wish it had not ended.

The main characters of the book are Henley Elliott and Carter McAlister. Both have painful secrets and both are trying to heal from their secrets. 

Henley has had a rough life she was in a coma during college due to a beating and woke up with a special ability of being able to feel others feeling by touching them. She became a psychiatrist in Cleveland Ohio and got to close to one of her patients, afterwards had a mental breakdown and embarrassed her influential family. Then she ran away from everything. One day 2 years later she ends up in Trappers' Cove, Minnesota when her car breaks down.

Carter McAlister was a police officer in Philadelphia Pennsylvania. After being shot on the job and his partner was killed, Carter has his own skeletons to run from. He packs up and moves to Trappers' Cove and becomes the Sheriff in the tiny town. 

Now that the 2 are in the same town can they find each other and heal their pain together? Can Carter protect Henley from the unseen and unknown danger that is following her? You will have to read it to find out.

This book pretty much has everything in it. It has romance, some paranormal, some love, some hate, some danger and more. It is a pretty clean book. There are come curse words, the couple of sex scenes are not very graphic. 

I really liked that though the story was pretty detailed the details did not drag on or bore me by over doing it. There was just enough to bring the story to life in my minds eye. I loved how the story line raced along but did not leave me lost. It did not bounce from one thing to the next but flowed. 

Becky really brought not just the main characters but all of the characters in the book to life. I do wish there was an epilogue at the end so I could peek in and see how great their happily ever after was if there was one. Which I am positive there has to be. 

AUTHOR Bio and Links:

A coffee addict and born city girl, I tend to place my stories in and around southeast Pennsylvania, or at least have a character or two from the area. Home is where the heart is and I make mine with my very own knight in slightly tarnished armor, three beautiful daughters ranging in ages from college through pre-school, two grandsons and a charming son-in-law. When I’m not busy living my own happily ever after, I’m writing about someone else’s.
