Kate Conneely was only hired help for Mick’s family. Yet they thought her important enough to mention in the will. The bad part is seeing Mick again.
Michael ‘Mick’ Spillane shows up for his father’s funeral and reading of the will. He thought it would be quick and easy then things turned complicated.
Kate is surprised to be mentioned in Mick’s father’s will. She even gets the dog, Molly. Mick is not too happy. He does not mind Kate being mentioned, but thanks to his father, things have changed. If he considers selling the farm, it will automatically revert to Kate. She was the one who had been there for his father, even giving Mick updates of his condition. Mick cannot leave his museum job in Dublin. With one thing left to do, he hires a manager to care for the farm. After ten years, he and Kate still have unfinished business between them that still stirs within their hearts. Can they stop being strangers long enough to form that bond they once shared, or will their newfound romance be suddenly interrupted?
I have to admit the emotions are threefold in A Piece of My Heart. When Mick and Kate ache to be with each other, I could practically see it in their eyes and hear it in their voice. The way they try to hold their control intact is so beautifully penned. I love the part about the circle, and the place they shared. Kemberlee Shortland creates a stunning read that touches upon the heartstrings. The storytelling is at its best. The descriptions are marvelously crafted and the characters absolutely lifelike. With emotions turning faster than a roller coaster, she allows the reader to visualize parts of Ireland with romance and a bit of suspense along the way.
