(Where the Heart Lives)
Robin Lee Hatcher
ISBN: 978-0310257776
September 2013/304 pages/$14.99

Diana is ready to begin a new chapter in her life—until the husband she believed dead reappears at her engagement party.

Diana Brennan came west on the orphan train and was given a home with a loving couple who cherished and spoiled her. At 17, she fell hard for Tyson Applegate, the son of a wealthy mine owner. After a whirlwind courtship and marriage, Tyson took off for adventures around the world, including fighting with the Rough Riders in Cuba. Receiving no word from him in years, Diana’s infatuation with her dashing husband died an ugly death, and she is ready to move past the old pain and marry again, just as soon as Tyson is declared legally dead.

But when Tyson returns, claiming to be a changed man, he wants to reunite with his wife and run for the senate. While Diana suspects the election is his real reason for wanting her by his side, she agrees to maintain his home and to campaign with him, but when it is over, win or lose, she wants her freedom.

He agrees with one condition—she must give him a chance to change her mind about him.

I loved the first two books in this series (my double review is here) but I think this one may be my favorite. The drama of this historical romance quickly unfolds with an engagement party interrupted by none other than the very-much-alive husband of the shocked no-longer-fiancee-to-be! Hatcher creates memorable and engaging characters in this engrossing tale of second chances, forgiveness, and softening hearts awakened by love. Multiple layers and subplots enhanced by enjoyment of this pleasurable read. This is a must-have for your fall reading list.
