Why all of Ms. Holm's historicals were not made available for nook is beyond me. I have most of her early work in paperback and they are all on my keeper shelves. The characters in this book were lovable, endearing and believable and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. I have purchased it as well for my nook, and I would like to see all of her works made available for the 21st century on nook.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I basically skimmed through it and got the storyline. It doesn't differ again from the other books in this series. Truvy seems too emotional, too helpless (and struck me whether she's mentally stable because she can go into hysterics over a dead bird) and Jack is not rough enough for a guy who owns a gymnasium. I mean they are nice characters but they lack believability. The storyline is simple and there's no twist or intrigue to be interesting. I'm glad the series has ended and thus saving me from further disappointment and money. I thought the first 'Harmony' is the best of the series, while 'Honey' also has a complicated storyline. But with 'Hearts' there is a lot of potential for a good story but more thought could definitely pull it up.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Early in the Teddy Roosevelt administration, Truvy Valentine teaches economics and coaches athletics at the all girls St. Francis Academy. Although a renegade in many ways, her energy makes Truvy a popular teacher among the administration, staff, and students. However, she totally crosses the line when she reads extracts from a nonregulated book, ¿The Science of Life¿, that provides insight on human sexuality to her students. Truvy is given a leave of absence to decide whether she can return under the condition that she teach inside the school¿s rules. <P>Truvy travels to Harmony, Montana, home of her friend Edwinna Wolcott. There she meets Jake ¿Bruiser¿ Brewster, who runs a local gym and was once considered the world¿s strongest man. Truvy replaces the pregnant Edwinna teaching dance, with most of her students coming from Jake¿s gym. However, not only can¿t she dance in spite of being a talented athlete, she only wants to dance with Jake, not the men competing in a local physique contest. <P> HEARTS is a superb historical romance that provides the audience with a feel for western America circa 1901. The story line is enjoyable as the tidbits of history are cleverly woven into the plot. Truvy and Jake are a dynamic duo and the support cast adds to the authenticity of the fabulous fourth and final book of Stef Ann Holm¿s wonderful ¿Brides for all Seasons¿ series. <P>Harriet KlausnerWas this review helpful?
