Book Review: Losing Heart

"I hate you. I hate you with all of Sylvia's heart."

Helen has waited for months for the heart that will save her life. After reaching out to the grieving mother of her donor heart, Helen realises that a second chance comes at a price. The price, she soon realises, is much steeper than she'd ever have chosen to pay.

There's more than one way to break a heart. There's more than one way to destroy a life...

Donna is a longtime book lover and sometime book reviewer and has devoured books from an early age. She writes short (or long) stories as and when inspiration hits and is married to fantasy author David M. Brown (Fezariu's Epiphany, A World Apart). She was also co-contributor to David's book, Man vs Cat, a humorous look at life with six rambunctious rescue cats.

Donna has lived in many different areas of the UK over the last 30-something years but has remained in Yorkshire for the past decade. She ardently disputes the misnomer that 'It's grim up north'. You can find Donna on Google+, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Goodreads, or visit her and her husband's shared blog: B-Lines and Felines.

My Review:

Let me start by saying that this story lives up to expectations, lives up to them and surpasses them. From the time I started reading this psychological thriller, I couldn't put it down. I read it nonstop in one sitting.

The plot is good and hangs together beautifully while the characters are complex and multidimensional. The good characters aren't saints; they do some things they probably shouldn't, and you love to hate the bad guys.

Maybe you'd be better than I was at figuring out how it would end. I guessed wrong, and a part of me still wanted a different ending. 

I was disappointed in one thing: the book was too short. I wanted to read more. 

Well done, Ms. Brown. 5 out of 5 stars.
