3.5 Star Review by Guest Reviewer Nicole Lorenzo

Emma Daniels has the perfect life.  A loving husband, a beautiful little girl Mia, the perfect job as a first grade teacher. The day she receives the news that she will be having another baby should be one of the happiest days of her life. Instead it turns into a day of tragedy when her husband Jonathan dies in a fatal car crash and her life is changed forever.  Now raising her two young daughters on her own, Emma decides to go home to Ireland for a long overdue visit. The last time Emma was home was for her wedding five years ago. Although you would think that was one of the happiest times in her life, it was also one of the saddest. The last time she was in Ireland she had her heart broken, and the secrets she has carried with her have haunted Emma ever since.

Home in Ireland surrounded by her family and friends is exactly what she needs to pick up the pieces of her life. When she is talked into going out for a night of fun and relaxation, Emma should of known better than to go to O’Grady’s. What are the chances of him being there? He should have been halfway across the world, where he went when he left her heart shattered on the pier, but yet there he was staring back at her in the place that started it all.

Zach Adams fell desperately and completely in love with Emma 5 years ago. He didn’t care that he only knew her three weeks or that she was about to be married. He loved her and he was determined to make her his. Just when things were going his way suddenly the unimaginable happened, Emma didn’t pick him. Now five years later Emma is back, but now a widow with two young daughters. The second he sees her again he can't stop the feelings from rushing back.  Tragedy strikes again and soon Emma needs Zach more now than ever. They learn that everything was not what is seemed all those years ago. Can Emma and Zach have another chance at love?

“Please give us a chance. This time pick me, Love me. There is no reason you can’t stay here and try to make this work, I love you. I never stopped loving you. So I am begging you. Please don’t do this, please don’t leave me again.”

 I really enjoyed A Stolen Heart by Beverley Hollowed.  It’s a sweet love story about a couple that find their way back to each other after lies, heartache and misunderstandings tear them apart. Emma is a very strong character, for she endures a lot of tragedy in this book, but she doesn’t give up. Zach truly loved Emma from the moment he saw her and I am truly happy that they got their happily ever after in the end!
