about the book

A Worthy HeartMaggie Montgomery’s long-held wish to see America is finally coming true. She’ll visit her beloved brother Rylan and his wife, Colleen, and at the same time, escape Neill Fitzgerald’s unwanted attention. In addition, Maggie has a secret! She plans to remain in America to seek her fortune and to hopefully find love. While visiting Irish Meadows, she meets an intriguing man whom she thinks is a stable hand. Only when Rylan demands she stay away from Adam O’Leary does she realize he’s Colleen’s brother, recently released from prison. Nonetheless, Maggie can’t seem to make her heart conform to her brother’s request.

Adam O’Leary has never felt worthy of his place in the family. Spending time in jail only reinforces his belief. Now that he’s free, Adam hopes to make amends and earn back his family’s trust. Falling in love with Maggie Montgomery, however, was never in his plans.

Despite everyone’s effort to keep them apart, the two develop a bond nothing can break–but has Adam truly changed, or will the sins of his past prove too much for Maggie to overcome?

My Thoughts

The O’Leary family are now permanent residents on my all-time favorites list! They are right at home alongside the BallantyneO’Connor, Christiansen, and Hawthorne families, just to name a few.

Rylan’s siblings Maggie and Gabe Montgomery join him in America for a visit and it doesn’t take them long to begin finding reasons to stay. I adore Maggie, she’s a spitfire! She is vibrant and confident young woman and she has her heart set on adventure and independence.

At first, Gabe is her reluctant escort but the big shiny firetrucks ease his disappointment and a certain lovely face (who will remain unnamed here. No spoilers, friends! This is a safe reader haven!) has him reconsidering all his future plans.

Adam O’Leary has long been the black sheep of the family but I wanted to know why! Why the animosity between him and his father? After Adam is released from jail, the shame has him feeling even more like the prodigal son and unworthy of his own family. Boy, he has made some bad choices but my heart went out to him and I was rooting for him and his dreams!

A Worthy Heart is an exciting, suspenseful, and heartwarming story of hope, redemption, and love!
