Thirty-four year old professor, Dani Carrigan never thought she wanted to be a mother. Until she saw that little blue line, that is. Since then she’s known that this is the best course for her life. Sure, it may not be the “smart” choice but Dani has always done what’s smart now it’s time to do something else.
But what’s right isn’t always what’s easy. When it looks like the baby’s daddy isn’t so on board with having this baby and Dani finds there may be health complications, Dani hides. From her sisters, from her friends, from her decisions.
Will anyone be able to reach Dani through her self-doubt and denial?
Oh mu goodness!! “Close To Her Heart” is amazing! This book was so much more than a sweet romance!
What I liked: I loved Dani in this book. In other books, I’d thought she was a bit stuffy but in “Close To Her Heart” Dani truly shines. (She also seems to be very much like me so I’m wondering if people see me as stuffy…)
C. J. Carmichael completely winds your emotions around Dani and her decisions. It hurt so much to see her alone and pulling away from everyone because she couldn’t make the decisions she thought they’d want her to make.
What I didn’t like: It was really hard for me to see this end. I really want to stay a part of Dani’s life…
