Tell That to My Heart is such a sweet love story. It follows Jemima (Mim) as she navigates the confusing terrain of love, lust, and friendship to finally arrive at the place where her heart is happy and content.
The author has accurately depicted how manipulative people can wrap gullible women around their little finger. I was willing Jemima to come to her senses all throughout the story!
Honey’s hate for Jemima isn’t fully explained. In my opinion, such vile behavior should be propelled by something more than just jealousy. Let’s wait and see if the next book talks about Honey some more.
It is also a mystery to me as to why Aidey, Anna-Lisa, and Mim continued to work for Catherine as long as they did, considering how verbally abusive she was.
However, the focus of the story is on how Jemima recognizes the pattern in her failed relationships and realizes her true love has been standing in front of her all along.
I enjoyed the highs and lows of Mim’s life and the camaraderie she shares with the people of her village. Her sister’s dog, Herbert, sounds like an absolute delight. I almost wish the book was illustrated–I wanted to see more of the dog.
This novel leaves you feeling warm and good inside and wanting to know what happens next. Remember, this is just Book 1 so there’s more coming.
Thank you to the author and Rachel for my review copy!
Jemima Dewberry wears her heart on her sleeve. Her weakness for bad boys, coupled with her track record for making bad decisions has led to endless heartbreak. The only trouble is, she can’t seem to kick the habit.
On top of that, her “dream” job at Yorkshire Portions magazine hasn’t turned out to be what she’d hoped, and she seems to have developed the knack of annoying her boss without even trying. It doesn’t help that the new girl seems to have taken an instant dislike to her. All that’s keeping her there are her best friends Anna-Lisa and Aidey, who have picked up the pieces of her shattered heart more times than they care to remember.
When Jemima’s latest boyfriend turns out to be no better than the rest, the hurt and humiliation is almost unbearable. She declares she’s finally through with love, and swears off men for life. But when charismatic Caspar De Verre walks into the office with his dangerous good looks and mesmerising smile, she’s utterly captivated, and her promises to Anna-Lisa and Aidey not to let her heart rule her head are soon forgotten.
But is Caspar all he seems? Anna-Lisa and Aidey have their doubts. And Herbert, the happy-go-lucky black Labrador Jemima’s looking after, doesn’t seem to like him either.
As Jemima falls for Caspar’s charms she finds herself being forced to confront the struggle between her head and her heart. But which one will prove the most powerful?
And will Jemima get the happy-ever-after she so desperately craves?
