Sweet baby goodness, this book was fantastic.
I've been a fan of Nancy Straight and her books for a while. Her stories always have the ability to draw me in, hold me down, and not let me go until I reach the end. And by that point, I'm totally cool with it because I'd been on a roller coaster ride of AWESOME. The case was no different with His Frozen Heart.
From the start, Nancy did a fabulous job of establishing the characters and the world they lived in. I had a great grasp of who Candy was and how her relationship with Libby went. And then later, I had a good grasp on how things were with Dave. It was all very well written and developed, and that made it so easy to enjoy this novel.
Connecting with the characters happened quick. Candy was a cool chick, and I really liked her as an MC. We don't spend much time with Libby, but I can tell she's a good girl, too. Then we have Dave. My dear, lovely Dave. I know Daniel (from Nancy's Touched series) is my boy and all, but Dave...daaaang. I'd cuddle with Dave any day. He was a pretty deep character, and I found him so interesting. The only one more interesting in this book was Mark, Dave's brother. I'm all kinds of curious about THAT guy. But overall, these characters were fabulous.
The romance made my heart go crazy. It wasn't exactly insta-love, but I can't deny that the relationship moved quicker than some might prefer. However, it's not completely unfounded. Candy and Dave have known each other for years, and they have something of a connection already established as a basis. Plus, it's incredibly easy to ignore the speed of their progression when they're being all cute and sweet. I loved them!
Overall, His Frozen Heart is probably my favorite Nancy Straight story so far. That's a hard statement to make, because I LOVE her books so much, but I think this one took the cake. I read it in less than a day, and fell in love with every single word. I just finished the book and I am already sitting here, missing the characters. Put simply, I freaking adore this book!
5 stars - A captivating story I adored from beginning to end!
**About the Author**
I LOVE Starbucks’ White Mocha Latte and Mountain Dew, (but not together). I have a lead foot so I set cruise control when I drive, even in 25 MPH zones. I almost never win when I play Angry Birds, but have my 9 year old close, so he can clear the hard levels for me. I grew up on a farm and am opposed to eating fresh chicken (not opposed to meat - just opposed to any meat that was alive a few hours before lunch). I am a huge fan of the show, Big Bang Theory, on CBS. I share my life with two fantastic sons, three rotten dogs and a husband that I adore.
