“Paperhearts” by Courtney Walsh, book review
Abigail has been running the Book Nook since her dad left her the business. In the little town of Love’s Park the store is a favorite of out of town visitors, especially during the Valentine season. But when a new person moves to town and buys her building she fears that her dream may be gone.
Jacob moves to Love’s Park to start over after the death of his wife. As a doctor he buys the downtown building to open his medical practice. While he is trying to start over as a single dad, he chose Love’s Park because his wife had loved the little town and its Valentine’s Day traditions. They wrote little love notes to each other on paper hearts and put them up in their apartment. The tradition continued each year, until the last, when Jacob’s hearts were the only ones.
This contemporary fiction novel was easy read and enjoyable. The characters were believable and the story too. The underlying theme of love and forgiveness was refreshing and wonderful. Great read, especially this week- Valentine’s Day.
