Lonely Hearts Mountain is a compelling read from start to finish. Her characters are complex and seem polar opposites before you get to know their real depth of emotions through this enticing story. The plot will grip you with humor, romance and suspense to give the reader a captivating drama with realistic characters that will embrace the heart. Rachel Smith pens a colorful tale of romance that burns with tantalizing passion as the characters struggle to conquer the insurmountable odds that could keep them apart. This is a great romance and a pleasure to read. I look forward to discovering more great romance from this author. Enjoy!
