Review: A Heart Adrift by:Laura Frantz

 A Heart Adrift

 **Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the publisher. All opinions are my own.

About the Book:

 It is 1755, and the threat of war with France looms over colonial York, Virginia. Chocolatier Esmee Shaw is fighting her own battle of the heart. Having reached her twenty-eighth birthday, she is reconciled to life alone after a decade-old failed love affair from which she's never quite recovered. But she longs to find something worthwhile to do with her life.

Captain Henri Lennox has returned to port after a lengthy absence, intent on completing the lighthouse in the dangerous Chesapeake Bay, a dream he once shared with Esmee. But when the colonial government asks him to lead a secret naval expedition against the French, his future is plunged into uncertainty.

Will a war and a cache of regrets keep them apart, or can their shared vision and dedication to the colonial cause heal the wounds of the past? Bestselling and award-winning author Laura Frantz whisks you away to a time fraught with peril--on the sea and in the heart--in this redemptive, romantic story.


My Review:

 First of all, the best idea in the entire world was connecting fiction and chocolate! in my honest opinion, it just seems difficult to pull together some many aspects of a story and make something good and intriguing out of it. If it were me it would be a jumbled mess. Laura Frantz was able to do that and so much more.

 With the threat of an ongoing war, Henri decides that he needs to focus on something worthwhile and a "war" just isn't it. So he thinks that maybe working on completing that lighthouse will be a good enough distraction from everything. He feels that Esmee should help him like they had always had planned, but will she be another distraction from whats really going on in his heart?

 This story is full of love, suspense, and just pure unadulterated romance. You can feel the romance of Virginia not just between the characters. A great book!
