My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Cora’s Heart is a pretty typical romance novel. Two people are in love but their own hang-ups keep keeping them apart until it is almost too late. There was a time about three-quarters in that I wanted to take Cora by the shoulders and shake her. She is too stubborn and unforgiving because of her own misplaced guilt but she takes it too far when she kicks Mac out for not taking care of a child he didn’t even know existed for 16 years. As for Mac, he isn’t quite your typical romantic hero. Unlike so man of them, he often – very often – does and says the wrong thing. Much like men in the real world.
