About the Author

From medical secretary to court reporter to property manager to owner of a special-events decorating company, Carol J. Post’s résumé reads as if she hasn’t yet decided what she wants to be when she grows up. But one thing that has remained constant through the years is her love of writing. She started as a child composing poetry for family and friends, then graduated to articles for religious and children’s publications. Now she pens fun, fast-paced inspirational romance and romantic suspense stories. Her books have been nominated for an RT Reviewers’ Choice Best Book award and selected as an RT Top Pick. When Carol isn’t writing, she enjoys sailing, hiking, camping—almost anything outdoors. She also plays the piano and sings with her music-minister husband. Their two grown daughters and their grandkids live too far away for her liking, so she now pours all her nurturing into taking care of a fat and sassy black cat and a highly spoiled dachshund.

Trust My Heart is a clean Christian themed novel. It does not preachy at you. Set in a small town of Murphy NC. Jami has just returned home to a job at the town newspaper. She gets her first assignment to interview Grant who has inherited the property that connects to hers. He wants to sell the property and that is his sole reason for being in town. Jami discovers things about Grant's family that he doesn't know. Grant has relationship problems, a busted marriage and a grandmother that didn't want him but yet left her estate to him. Grant gives Jami two weeks to convince him not to sell the property to someone that wants to destroy it for Gold. Can she do It? Get the book and find out you will be glad you did.

Trust My Heart is Carol Post’s most recent stand-alone novel, and is also the first book I have ever read by her. I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect when I picked up this story, as I hadn’t even been introduced to Carol’s writing before I was invited to be an influencer for this novel, but I have to admit, I was pleasantly surprised! This is such a cute little story that turned out to be a quick read I really enjoyed, and I am sure I will read more of Carol’s books in the future! Jami Carlisle is such a sweet, perky character whom I immediately knew I wouldn’t be able to help loving. She has such a zest for life, and is just so completely adorable, and I loved the way she approached all of the things that had been thrown at her throughout the course of her life. She is also just so completely honest, and funny, and I just loved getting to know her better as the book went on. I also felt like I understood her better than many other characters I read about, since I am a fellow wannabe-writer myself but I also never feel like any of it is good enough, and that connection made this novel that much more enjoyable for me. Grant McAllister was also a wonderful character, although it was occasionally difficult for me to get past his somewhat tough exterior. Don’t get me wrong, I definitely loved him and thought he was a wonderful guy, but he was sometimes a little tough and unforgiving (possibly because of his lack of faith?!) for me to handle. All in all though, I did think he was exceptionally sweet, especially to Jami, and I loved watching him process his way through all the information he gathered about his grandparents and the way he gradually felt more and more for Jami. At the end of the day, I can honestly say that I definitely enjoyed this novel, although a few of the interactions were just a little stilted for me. Other than that, though, this was an adorable story that I am glad I got the chance to read, and I can happily give it four out of five bookshelves. Carol did a wonderful job of weaving together a novel of love, forgiveness, and redemption, and I know I will be reading more of her work in the future!

I had so much fun reading this book. When I pick up a book by Carol Post I know I am in for a treat. Post keeps my interest the entire time, and I can't wait to see what is going to happen next. I found myself wishing I could go visit Murphy, North Carolina and meet these people I know would become friends. I am hoping that there will be more books in this series so I can get to know the characters even more, and learn more about the secondary characters. Trust Her Heart follows Jami and Grant as they learn what God has planned for their lives. Jami is confused with where her life is taking her. She has been off and on with Robert for forever, and he keeps talking marriage. He is one of her best friends and she feels comfortable around him, but does that mean they should get married? Call her old fashioned, but a girl can't help but hope for sparks. Sometimes when we ask God a question, we have to wait a while for the answer. Jami landed her dream job, but has some big shoes to fill. Her first assignment is an interesting one, but it's not going to be easy. Little does she know it's only going to get harder. Grant didn't want to inherit his grandparents stuff, but now that he has it must be dealt with. Wanting to find stuff that was his dad's is proving near impossible. And the cute reporter begging for an interview isn't letting up. He knows better than to trust reporters, but Jami says she is different, and so far that's proving true. Small town life isn't as bad as he thought. Even the most quirky people can grow on you. Is Grant meant to go back to his big city life, or is it time for a slower pace? I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Contemporary Fiction. I couldn't wait to find out what was going to happen next. I enjoyed seeing a romance unfold that was more real than a lot of recent stories these days. I received this book from the author, and was not required to leave a positive review. All opinions expressed are my own.

Whenever I get my hands on a romance title, I worry that it's going to be the same ol' thing. Girl meets boy- acts shy. Boy meets girl, acts like he doesn't care. Both deny feelings and become annoying before a happy ending. That wasn't the case with this one. Well, maybe it was... a little- but it was good! Trust My Heart, by Carol J. Post is about Jami Carlisle, returning home from college and ready to step into a full-fledged commitment with her long-time beau, Robert. The problem is, there are no sparks, no fireworks and no true love. Yeah, sure he's her best friend, but why can't she feel what she thinks she's supposed to feel with him? When she begins working for the local paper, and is given an opportunity to interview the sole beneficiary of the McAllister estate, she can't let it get away! Grant McAllister's got a fractured heart. Unwanted by the woman (his grandmother) who left him anything, the last thing he expected was to have everything bequeathed to him. He's survived a busted marriage and is so not interested in a relationship. He's a polite but rigid and yet Jami comes into his life and things begin to change. . Somehow Jami is able to discover things about his family he never knew. She may also help him change his outlook on life. This novel is Christian themed, so it's clean, comforting and not preachy. You love getting to know the well-developed characters and not just some perfect folks (although Jami did come off pretty near flawless), in a small town that makes things work out for the Happy Ever After. The story is fast-paced and you end up loving it so much, you don't want to turn the final page. I loved it and if you've been with me a while you know how I am about romance! I will definitely pick up more by Carol J. Post. Trust My Heart is a winner for my bookshelves.

I had mixed feelings about this book. I struggled a bit to finish it. By the time I was over 3/4's through it I began to really be interested. It is filled with interesting and quirky characters that tend to 'make' the story. This is a typical romance. Boy meets girl. Boy doesn't want to get involved etc., etc., etc. Finally they get involved then something causes them to split., etc., etc., etc. Predictable. Yes. But fun and a bit humorous. It also has a great message. As I finished reading I honestly realized I really did like this story. I wasn't too attracted to Grant the main man. I frankly thought he just needed to 'give it up' and move on. After a broken marriage he struggles to 'move on'. Until he meets Jami in the small town where his parents grew up. Jami's character is sweet 'a bit' quirky and honestly good. She has some baggage and hidden dreams that come out. Grant encourages Jami to strive to fulfill her dreams. She encourages him too. Both their dreams are fulfilled by the end which is good. But I was left wanting more. Although the author; I admit did a great job of tying the romance and the subplots together into a fun story I would have enjoyed the book alot more if there had been an Epilogue where the couples dreams come to fruition. Their dreams were a huge part of their stories and their characters. I would love to see a series. I was captured more by the sub characters than the main characters. I enjoyed reading Trust My Heart and would read more if there was a series. I visited the authors page after writing this review. I was thrilled to see that Trust My Heart is indeed book one of the Murphy Series. I wish that there had been some indication in the book that there will be a series. I received a complimentary copy from Litfuse.

I just finished reading Trust My Heart by Carol J. Post and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Grant McAllister and Jami Carlisle are the main characters in this touching story about overcoming obstacles of trust, learning the truths, and offering forgiveness. I loved how each planned to only be friends but as they learned more about each other and shared their stories developed a slow-budding romance that neither was really willing to accept along the way. The quirky characters that help shape the story, like Bernie and Hank further enhanced the connection with the characters in the book. I enjoyed how through intentional and inadvertent action, Bernie and Hank participated in the rise and fall of the relationship between Grant and Jami. The character development was great, as the author created complex and believable characters that were endearing and frustrating at the same time. Both Jami and Grant had trust issues as a result of their past. Both had to learn to let it go and approach forgiveness, of each other and of those from their past, in order to allow them to grow in their relationship. I was excited to see on the author's page that this book is the first in a planned series. I look forward to having the chance to get to know all of the characters better in the future installments in the series. I received a complimentary review copy of this book, but all opinions are my own.

I LOVE everything about this book... seeing people overcome obstacles and learning how true forgiveness blesses you in ways you never could have imagined is just a small example of why I fell in love with this story! Grant and Jami will have you cheering them on right from the start and if you're like me you will also fall in love with all the others as well! I am so glad to have found yet another wonderful author to read! Thank you LitFuse for allowing me the opportunity to review this book! Heart of a Bookworm gives Trust My Heart 5 ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥'s

3.5 stars Carol J. Post’s newest novel Trust My Heart is the first in a series set in one of my very favorite places – the Smoky Mountains. In fact, the town of Murphy NC and its beautiful mountain setting acts as a secondary character of sorts in this novel about finding home, learning to forgive, and daring to trust. Bernie is a hoot! And so is Hank! I love quirky characters like this. As separate characters, they’re already fun but their bickering back and forth together made them even more entertaining. The matchmaking plot that Jami and her friends hatch to get the two together didn’t add much to the story – or to Bernie and Hank – one way or the other for me; I think even without it their relationship would remain interesting and well-defined…and hilarious … and even a little romantic. Jami and Grant have a lot of chemistry together – and a lot of heartbreak in their respective backstories. Grant especially finds it difficult to trust and the rather extreme way this affects his actions (especially concerning Jami) made me want to purse whomp him at least twice. On the other hand, he does have some pretty swoonworthy and heartfelt moments to make up for it! Trust My Heart is a sweet small-town romance with a couple of quirky characters, a little bit of family mystery/angst, and a tender theme of forgiveness. While a couple of the plot threads were distracting or unnecessary, others have me eagerly waiting for more books in this series. Several of the supporting characters just quite simply NEED for their stories to be told too! The icing on the cake for me – in addition to the great characters and the swoony moments – is the NC mountain setting, one of my happy places in real life and in fiction too. (I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.)

Trust My Heart by Carol J. Post is a story about Grant and Jami, two people who have been betrayed and hurt in the past as children, and neither has come quite to grips with what to do with the pain. Both have commitment and serious trust issues for different reasons. With the help of some busy bodies, Grant and Jami’s budding relationship hits some major road bumps along the way to true love. Miscommunication and not taking the time to have a real conversation had me wanting to smack these two upside the head. However, I felt for both of them and the author had me understanding where they were coming from. The misunderstandings added a depth to the story and to Grant and Jami characters that made their love journey all the richer by exposing the extent of their pain and the ending was all the sweeter because of the trials. Not only are we treated to this sweet, slow-budding romance, we also get to meet some eccentric characters, maybe another romance brewing, and a couple of cute dogs who show love no matter what. I hope the author writes more as Jami’s two best friends sound like they have interesting stories to tell too. I enjoyed this story and I was very invested in these characters lives. I received a copy of this book for free from Litfuse. I was not required to write a positive review and the views expressed are my own.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book! I loved the small town setting and the various interesting characters the author introduced me to. The two main characters, Grant and Jami both had some major trust issues from past experiences in their lives. They handled those trust issues in very different ways…one leaning toward faith and one away from it. As they both began to care for each other, things occurred which stretched their ability to trust each other at different times. Although this was frustrating to see happening, it made sense based on the hurts they had both lived through. Trust My Heart engaged me right from the start and was hard for me to set down. I am hoping there will be future books set in the town of Murphy, NC and filled with Jami’s friends’ stories of love. I received a complimentary copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Trust My Heart was truly a joy to read. I couldn't wait for my lunch breaks and work commutes, just so I could keep reading and find out what was going to happen next! The Agents of Shield fan in me couldn't help but mentally cast AoS's Grant Ward as Trust My Heart's Grant McAllister ... I'm sure due to the same name. (What can I say? After 3 seasons of Brett Dalton in a role that evokes strong emotion ... it was inevitable, I suppose!) Trust My Heart merits multiple re-reads - not only for the plot, but also Carol Post's beautiful way with words. She paints vivid pictures in the mind; her characters are complex, believable, and laugh-out-loud funny; and she challenges the reader to make their faith their own. I highly recommend Trust My Heart for both guys and gals; while, yes, the story is a romance, it's not the "light, fluffy" romance so many novels feature of late. This one has a unique depth and reality I wish more romances had - both real and fiction. I received a free copy of the ebook from the publisher. All opinions are my own.

"Trust my Heart" by author Carol J. Post is about love and happiness. Grant McAllister only wants to sell land and then get away. His grandparents have left him a mansion that he wants no part of. He has just gotten divorced and now he does not want any relationships. Jami Carlisle is a reporter on her first job. She has been told to find out about Grant and his mansion. When they meet they try to ignore each other, but can they? Will they be able to trust anyone again? I really liked this story of finding love. I give this book a 5/5. I was given this book for a review and these are all my opinions.

This was a wonderful Christian romance. The author has combined delightful characters, faith, romance and family secrets that had me pulled into the lives of the main characters Jami and Grant from the first pages and kept me reading to see how their relationship was going to develop. They both had hurts from the past to overcome, and I thoroughly enjoyed following the ups and downs of their relationship to see if they could move past their hurts and learn to trust each other, forgive those that had hurt them in the past and find God's direction in their lives. I certainly recommend this book to the reader that enjoys good Christian romance, and I look forward to reading more by this author.

The is a gargantuan story of grace, love and peace. It leaves you with an impression of faith, hope and a feeling of great joy. GOD is sought throughout the book and what better guide could be sought throughout a book than that. Jami breaks up with her long time boyfriend and starts a job writing - and her first job is to get and interview with Grant whose parents passed - and they think that he may have answers - Grant has just come off from a divorce case and he doesn't trust relationships right now -plus he has been burned by reporters - but there was just something different about Jami - and so he let her interview him and so they started talking and it goes from there - I wont ruin the rest for you - you have to read it but I tell you, you will love this book. I received a copy of this book in exchanged for an honest review.

Fairy tales are just that. Not real. Never coming true. Fabricated stories to charm their way into a woman's heart and never let go. Perhaps that is why all of Jami Carlisle's relationships haven't worked out well. Maybe she had been looking for a happily ever after with someone who simply didn't exist. It seems like most of the men in her life weren't meant to stay. Her own father walked out on her and her mother when given the ultimatum to sober up or get lost. Guess she knew what matter most to him, and it wasn't what remained of their family. After losing her mother to cancer, Jami vowed to do something worthy of her life. She loved writing and even though most of her half-hearted novels lay unfinished in binders in her home, the prospect of getting a job as a reporter for the Scout, their local paper might just be the answer. Her first story would determine just how much gumption she possessed when she is tasked with interviewing Grant McAllister who has returned home from New York to settle his family's old home that has sat vacant for far too long. Seems the town has more rumors than truth on what really happened to them and their only answer might be Grant himself. Jami will have to use all her charms to outwit all of Grant's straight-out refusals for an interview before he leaves town in a few weeks taking all the answers and mystery with him. But Grant has had all he can stand with reporters who make promises and fail to keep them, choosing instead to print what will sell the most papers. Even though it seems that Jami isn't like the ones he has dealt with in the past, he knows that his story would be the one that would be just the edge someone like Jami could use to further her career into something much more more. Nope, just get in and get out while he can. If only he could take his own advice and not that of his own heart. Things are about to get interesting in Murphy, North Carolina! I received Trust My Heart by Carol J. Post compliments of Waterfall Press and Litfuse Publicity. This novel has within it all the elements to make a Hallmark Channel movie. You got to love all the quirky secondary characters like the over the top fashion statement charm of Bernie as well as her on and off again rivalry with farmer Hank who is set in his ways at the Feed store. Combine that with all the small town charm of a simple town like Murphy, you are bound to see some sparks fly and romance bloom. 5 out of 5 stars for my and can't wait to see more from Carol J. Post in the future. For now, this one has a cozy home in my personal library!

Trust My Heart by Carol J. Post is a captivating romance that reminds readers that truth sometimes turns out to not be truth and that forgiveness is possible. Jami is a red-headed, spunky reporter who has been assigned to interview the handsome, citified lawyer who has breezed into town to settle his grandparent's estate. Threading a little humor and faith with a few twists and turns, the author brings a quick-moving and interesting story to the written page. A story about dreams, friends, misunderstandings, broken families and love amidst it all. I received a complimentary copy of the book from NetGalley. A favorable review was not required and opinions are my own.

I really enjoyed this first book in the new series by Carol! She usually writes romantic suspense so this was fun to see her write something different! I always like books where the characters are different types of people and watching them come together. Grant is a busy lawyer who comes to Murphy to close up the estate of his late grandparents. He has a big chip on his shoulder because they didn't have anything to do with him during his life, cut his father out of their lives when he married his mother and was forced to be "poor" growing up - or so he believes. Grant goes through a major transformation while in Murphy as he meets a bubbly newspaper reporter for the local paper, Jami. She's funny, honest and cuts through his defenses. She is like no other person he's ever known! However, he's been burned by reporters before so because she wants to do a story on his grandparents, he doesn't want to get to know her! Jami sets out to change his mind! Jami knows all about abandonment! Her father left her when she was young. She wants to help Grant but she also wants to get her story. I enjoyed the development of these characters and the secondary characters were also a lot of fun. I also loved the friendships of Jami and her close friends. All of them were there for each other. Jami's two dogs are SO cute! Another plus in the story! I will definitely look forward to the next book when it comes out.

This is an amazing small town inspirational contemporary romance that is the beginning of what should be a great new series. Having never read of this author's work I wasn't sure what to expect. What I got was a well written heartwarming story with well developed characters and a nice easy flow to the story. Both Jami and Grant have trust issues. Grant's stemming from his failed marriage and Jami's due to a controlling ex boyfriend. Faith, courage, and maybe a push or two from the meddling townspeople help Jami and Grant find the love and devotion they both longed for but were to afraid to go after. A fantastic read and one I highly recommend.
