I first read Love, Life and a Polar Bear Tattoo by this author and feel in love with that book. I decided to read this because I enjoyed her other book so much. You just really fall in love with the characters. I could not put it down. I read it in about 4 hours. If you love a good romance story with its up and downs then you will really love this book.

I loved this book so much! I feel like I know the characters... I WISH I knew the characters. I became so involved with their stories...and am kind of sad that I wont ever see them again. Ms. Wardell is such a wonderful artist. This is the second of her books that I' ve read and she has yet to disappoint. i have her other 3 books waiting and i cant wait to start the next one.

This book has been on my tbr list for so long I guess I was a little afraid to read it in case it didn't live up to my hopes. I was a little hesitant because I had read another book, but wasn't very impressed. But this book was awesome! I can't believe I waited months to read this! Tess is a massage therapist and is trying to get her career as an artist going. Forrest is a hockey player who is recuperating from a devastating accident. Both have scars and are fighting inner demons. Forrest's career is on the line and Tess wants to help heal him physically and emotionally. This book captured my attention early and held it. All of the characters were well developed. I loved how there was this mystery of who was trying to hurt Forrest and how even though there were the obvious suspects it wasn't an open and shut case.. All in all, it was great overall, and I will not hesitate to read any of Heather Wardell's titles.

Loved this book! Read the first book in this series and thought it was really good, I didn't want it to end so I picked up the next book. I highly recommend this book.

Though not necessarily a sequel, it sure is a fantastic follow-up to Life, Love and a polar bear tattoo.

Heather Wardell is my favorite new author. She takes the emotion of Anita Shreve, the relationship development of Jodi Piccoult, and the romance of Nicholas Sparks, and puts them all together to create books that are impossible to put down. I really enjoyed Wardell's Planning to Live so I was looking forward to Go Small or Go Home. I liked Go Small or Go Home even better than Planning to Live! I made the mistake of starting this book in the middle of the week and I dropped everything to finish it. Wardell drew me in right from the start and I simply could not put this book down. I don't think I talked to my husband hardly at all for the two days I spent reading this book. I did manage to go to work, but all I could think about was, "When can I sit down and read more?" Wardell writes about women trying to balance a career, their personal dreams, and finding love. Her female leads are strong women who are in the process of self-discovery. Go Small or Go Home features a driven woman who has a hidden passion and who finds love unexpectedly. Tess is a massage therapist who takes a job working for a hockey team. She knows nothing about hockey and is unimpressed by the celebrity of the team's injured star player. Tess dreams of having an art career and starts having trouble balancing her responsibilities to the team with her art. What made this book for me was the emotion. It was a powerful read without being schmaltzy or preachy. I felt for Tess and rooted for her the entire book. I would recommend this book to anyone. It is adult fiction, but it is not full of bedroom scenes like so many other adult books. This book was outstanding, and I will definitely be reading more from Heather Wardell. Just One Gripe: I would have liked more physical descriptions. I found myself wanting to go back and remind myself of what the characters looked like. The Best Thing About This Book: The emotion and the way Wardell develops her relationships. Not only is the relationship between the two main characters well-developed, the minor relationships are important too, and Wardell weaves them all together seamlessly as part of the bigger story.
