A Heart for the Holidays by Dana Volney

My edition: Kindle (Copy from NetGalley)
Expected Publish Date: Nov. 21st 2016
Rating: 4 stars

Silver Morgenstern had a thriving, meaningful career as a surgeon working for charity organizations in war-torn countries. Then her life changed with one flick of the wrist. Now she’s back in Wyoming, serving as an administrator at the local hospital. But shuffling paperwork is nothing compared to saving lives.

Five years ago, Fisher Tibbs founded the successful social program Combat Children’s Hunger. Giving back to kids brings a sparkle to his eye, especially after the loss of his own young daughter, but it can’t mend the very real fissure in his heart. Ready to see his child again, he’s preparing and planning a future for CCH that he won’t get to witness.

But when Fisher’s application to be removed from the heart transplant list comes across Silver’s desk, her next mission is clear: convince him life is worth the fight. But she never expects that the struggle to rescue his heart might just save her own.

Review: I saw this on NetGalley and requested it faster than anyone can say romance.

Fisher has taken his name off of the heart transplant list. When this crosses Silver’s desk she know she has to make him see that he needs to stay on the list. What Silver didn’t expect is the handsome man who created a place for kids to come after school and eat. Fisher was accepting everything in his life and was ready to meet his daughter in heaven, until Silver walked in and jump started his heart.

I knew from the moment Silver first volunteered at Combat Children’s Hunger that I was going to cry. When I got to the moment of the Christmas tree lighting, I knew this was going to break my heart.

I was right. But this was a good story. I liked the flow and the characters. The heroine and the hero fit perfectly together. Nothing seemed forced. A cute, sad, sweet Christmas story. Just what I needed. I highly recommend if you like clean romances.

Top 10

Top Ten Major Endings

Everyone has had these! Cliffhangers. Endings that made us think ‘It can’t end like this!’ This list is my very own major cliffhangers/ endings that made me want to scream, kick, cry, and throw my book across the room.

10. King by T.M. Frazier

This is the first installment of the King series. The way it ended left me shocked. I wanted to throw something. Luckily I found King when the first four books were out and I could get the next one in a hurry.

9. Forsaken by Laura Thalassa

Boy did I cry at the end of this one. My heart just couldn’t take it.

8. The Devil’s Prayer by Luke Gracias

I am hoping there is another book after this one. This left on a cliffhanger. If there is another book I need it like yesterday.

7. Paper Princess by Erin Watt

The way this ended made me so mad. I wanted to jump through the book and slap the shit out of someone.

6. Broken Promise by Jen Wylie

Yeah I’m still waiting on the next one which hasn’t even come out yet and it’s been two years. Wylie ended it with Aro and Kai… I need this next book dagnabit.

5. First Kiss by C.L. Stone

With Sang’s dad calling and wanting his daughter, I was on the edge of my seat. To bad it was the end of the book and the next one is suppose to be out this December.

4. Project: Killer by J.L. Beck

When I read what had happen the the heroine and what her secret was I was dying to get to the next book.

3. Life’s Blood by Kailin Gow

The ending with this had my heart ripped to shreds. I wanted her to be with him be he can’t be with her because of a-hole.

2.Accessory by C.L. Stone

Kayli and Blake were knocked off the boat by someone we don’t know. The rest of the team is still on the boat.

1. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

Okay who didn’t cry at the end of this one. I mean really. This was the saddest ending in all of the Harry Potters. The next book has the most sad moments but doesn’t end sad unlike this one.
