There are several unique holidays listed today! It is Electronic Greeting Card Day (I wonder who created this day), Homemade Bread Day, World Peace Day (which we need in lieu of what happened in Paris), and (this one takes the cake) Take a Hike Day! If I told someone to take a hike, I do not think they would take it the correct way! I will enjoy Homemade Bread Day with some wonderful rolls I just picked up from the bakery.
What the Heart Remembers by Bette Lee Crosby is the third book in the Memory House Collection. Annie and Oliver Doyle are happily enjoying their home and awaiting the birth of their baby. Max (Maxine) Martinelli is Annie’s friend and an architect. Max has been unable to move forward with her life since she returned from Paris three years ago. When Max was in Paris she met and fell in love with Julien Marceau. Julien was supposed to follow Max back to the states. Unfortunately, Max never heard from Julien again. Now Max thinks that Julien could have been in an accident and have amnesia. That is why he never contacted her. Max is determined to go to Paris and look for Julien. Annie has tried talking to Max (to get her to move on) and she has even tried to set her up with Oliver’s old law partner, Andrew Steen. This is a journey that Max needs to go on in order to have a future. Annie sends her off at the airport with some special tea.
Max goes to Paris and starts searching for Julien. Will Max find what she is looking for in Paris? Or will she find something even better? Join us on Max’s journey in What the Heart Remembers. What the Heart Remembers is a wonderful book to read. I did want to strangle Max at times, but I understand how she feels (it is hard to get over someone). It is nice to revisit the characters in the Memory House Collection. We get to see how Ophelia Browne is enjoying her new life at Baylor Towers, how Oliver is doing after his accident, and we get to find out if Annie has a boy or a girl! I thoroughly enjoyed this novel and did not want it to end. I think this is my favorite book from the Memory House Collection. I give What the Heart Remembers 5 out of 5 stars. In order to enjoy What the Heart Remembers, you really do need to read the other two books in the series (in order for everything to make sense).
The first two books in the Memory House Collection are Memory House and The Loft. I received a complimentary copy of What the Heart Remembers from the author in exchange for an honest review.
I am currently reading Trials and Tribulations by Rachel Dylan. I hope you have a nice and relaxing day! Take care and Happy Reading!
