Review & Three Book Giveaway! Beloved by Robin Lee Hatcher


Beloved by Robin Lee Hatcher
Where the Heart Lives: Book Three
Zondervan / 2013
Find on: Amazon, Goodreads

About the book:
A most unwelcome guest surprises Diana at her engagement party---the husband she thought was dead!

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 o for adventures around the world, including fighting with the Rough Riders in Cuba. Receiving no word of him in years, Diana is ready to move past the old pain and marry again, just as soon as Tyson is declared legally dead.

But when Tyson returns, supposedly 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.

My thoughts:

Beloved is the third book in the Where The Heart Lives series and definitely my favorite! The romance story was so sweet and I loved how unique it was. I loved how throughout the story we got to see little flashbacks from the past - those were very interesting and helped me connect more to the characters/story.

I really liked both of the main characters - Tyson and Diana. I loved how they were already married, but because of things that had happened in the past, Tyson had to try and earn Diana's trust and love again. I wish Diana's siblings would have been in this book a little bit more, but I can see why the story played out the way it did.

Overall, I really enjoyed Beloved and definitely recommend it. I don't think you have to have read books one and two first to enjoy this one, but it's nice to read them in order. An enjoyable series and I look forward to reading more of Hatcher's books.

    1. Hmm. I don't know why that would happen. Is it just that the Rafflecopter won't load on this page? If so, here's the direct link to the form: http://www.rafflecopter.com/rafl/display/73dd3f179/

  33. I haven't had the opportunity to read this series of Robin. Since I've been recently disabled because of a medical error, I am not allowed to work so money went from great to horrible. I try to win contests, but if I don't win hopefully my library may have the series. Thank you for the opportunity to participate in this giveaway and please enter my name in the giveaway.
