When Abigail is unwillingly drafted into the Volunteers, she encounters the hearts, a distraction that couldn’t come at a worse time. A hard-to-read doctor has become Abigail’s new landlord, and he’s threatening to end her lease.
As she fights a growing attraction to this man intent on crushing her dreams, Abigail is inspired to string the hearts in her store, sparking a citywide infatuation with the artsy trend. But when a new batch of hearts arrives, it appears something tragic has happened to the couple. Will uncovering their story confirm Abigail’s doubts, or could it rescue her dreams . . . and her heart?
I was intrigued by this book from the beginning. Probably because I'm a hopeless romantic and was curious about the story behind the paper hearts.
The first few chapters were a bit slow for me and really the beginning of the whole story was slow. I was anxious to read about these paper hearts and they weren't even mentioned until about a third of the way through the book.
Jacob was a bit annoying as he wasn't man enough to stand up for himself and for what was right. He did eventually, so I guess we can give him partial credit. What really bothered me was that he let a flashy woman he didn't even really care about do the pushing around.
My favorite character was Ursula. She seemed a bit crusty, but had everyone's best interests at heart, mainly Abigail's.
"Paper Hearts" was a sweet story and was an relaxing read. At times it was predictable, but still enjoyable.
What I liked most about this book was the whole idea of the paper hearts. It's very sweet, romantic and sentimental, although I would keep my paper hearts.
