Review of Through the Heart by Kate Morgenroth

Through the Heart

From the bestselling author of They Did It with Love, a chance meeting ignites romance and results in murder

Nora and Timothy have lives that are worlds apart. Nora lives in a small Kansas town, living paycheck to paycheck, working in a coffee shop. Timothy lives in Manhattan, responsible to no one and nothing except managing his family's millions. When these two meet, it seems like the beginning of a fairy tale. Except Nora is not your typical damsel in distress, Timothy does not quite fit the role of a gallant prince, and fairy tales don't include a dead body.

As Nora and Timothy take turns telling their sides of the story, the reader is caught in the net of their love, and the chilling murder that results. With big questions of love, fidelity, filial responsibility and the role of fate, Through the Heart is a page-turning love story with a jaw dropping twist readers won't soon forget.

My thoughts:
I had a little trouble getting into this book at first, but I was glad I stuck with it!  It ended up being a pretty quick read.

Nora worked in a coffee shop named Starbox, not to be confused with Starbucks.  Her best friend is Tammy.  Tammy seemed to have a gift of predicting the future.  Every prediction that Tammy made for Nora was right on. She was never wrong. 

Nora lives at home with her mom who has cancer.  She does everything for her mom and feels guilty going anywhere, so she usually stays home with her mom.  Her mom seems like such a baby.  She seems to guilt her into staying with her all the time.  Nora needs to get out and have her own life.

Nora meets Timothy at her job.  He is not from her town but is just visiting.  Nora doesn't go out with him much and doesn't tell him about her mom and why she can't go out.  He wants her to go back to his hometown to visit, but she doesn't want to leave her mother alone. 

This book goes back and forth from Nora's point of view to Timothy's.  I like this aspect of the book.  It's nice to see what two people are thinking about the same situation.

In the end, Tammy makes a prediction that Nora really should have believed, because it came true and I didn't like what happened.
