A Heart for the Holidays by Dana Volney

My edition: Kindle (Copy from NetGalley)

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.
