Book Review: Be Careful, It’s My Heart by Kait Nolan

Reviewer: Kate

be careful it's my heartI received a copy of Be Careful, It’s My Heart by Kait Nolan in exchange for an honest review.


The best things happen while you’re acting…

The historic Madrigal theater, in the heart of downtown Wishful, is about to close its doors forever.  A last ditch fund-raising effort, a production of White Christmas, is probably the only thing that could bring Tyler Edison out of retirement.  She fell in love on that stage, but when Brody Jensen abandoned her, she lost the heart to sing and dance for the crowd.  Maybe it’s time to take that back…

It seems like pure chance when Brody’s job, which has taken him all over the world, brings him back to his little hometown to oversee his boss’s latest secret project.  Brody’s looking for closure, planning to sell the house his parents left him and finally put his past, and his memories of Tyler, behind him.  What better way than to be a part of this last show?  Even though his leading lady is surely long gone…

Put on your dancing shoes, auditions start at six o’clock.


To be honest, I must have missed something in this book. I don’t get the title at all. But—it doesn’t matter! I still loved it. This book is short and sweet. Somehow Kait Nolan has stuffed a full length romance into this little novella, leaving this reader thoroughly satisfied yet still wanting more. If you love a good classic romance, this is the winter read for you. The White Christmas backdrop imbues this book with a nostalgic, feel good vibe that resonates through every moment of the story. The chemistry between Tyler and Brody is either what you want or a needed reminder of what you have. And Nolan seasons this Happily Ever After with a solid dose of reality—this is not an all or nothing kind of ride. Nolan keeps it real, understanding that love often requires some kind of compromise.

I read this book in one sitting and I can’t wait for the next installment. I hope Nolan gives Tyler and Brody’s best buds their moment in the moonlight.

    🙂 The title is probably one of those things that people who aren’t die hard Irving Berlin fans won’t get. It’s one of his songs from Holiday Inn and also the stage production of White Christmas, and I thought it suited the set up. Thanks so much for the kind review!
