4 Hearts

I kept rereading the synopsis to decide if I wanted to buy the book and I am so glad that I did. I really enjoyed this book.
How two people who hardly know each other are brought together under tragic circumstances to help raise their little niece.

Adam receives a late night call that no one wants to receive.  Then seven days later he learns that he has a three year old niece.

Leah’s world changed when her brother showed up on her doorstep with his daughter needing her to watch Dani while he admits himself to rehab.

Together Adam and Leah watch over Dani and also start get to know each other and start to fall in love.
I’m really not sure what else to say except that I would definitely recommend this book to everyone. It pulls at your heartstrings and you fall in love with Adam along with Leah. There are parts where you will laugh, definitely parts where you will have tears in your eyes and parts where you can’t believe that what was happening was happening. It definitely has a HEA and you will love how it ends after all the issues that everyone had to go through to get to the HEA


“Do you want to talk about it?” I hesitantly ask, running my own finger along the steering wheel.

“I’m not sure. It’s just all so crazy in my head. Nothing makes sense. Nothing is going as I’ve planned.”

“Sometimes the best things that happen are the ones you least expect,” I say, like some damn philosophy professor.

She turns to me with a serious face. “Adam, what if Shane doesn’t get clean? What if he can’t do it?” A tear clings to her lashes before falling from her eye and trailing down her cheek.


Michelle moved around the Midwest most of her life, transferring from school to school before settling down in the outskirts of Chicago ten years ago, where she now resides with her husband and two kids.  She developed a love of reading at a young age, which helped lay the foundation for her passion to write.   With the encouragement of her family, she finally sat down and wrote one of the many stories that have been floating around in her head. When she isn’t reading or writing, she can be found playing with her kids, talking to her mom on the phone, or hanging out with her family and friends.  But after chasing around twin preschoolers all day, she always cherishes her relaxation time after putting the kids to bed.
