I have had this book scheduled for review but wasn’t sure if I would have it read in time in order to post a review due to a mailing mix-up … but I started reading What the Heart Remembers last night and couldn’t put it down. This book is amazing. Debra does such a fantastic job at creating a seamless mystery surrounding a donated heart that leaves you fully engaged and mesmerized. I loved the tension between the two gals and was absolutely blown away by the ending. Wow! I may be a little sleep deprived today but it was well worth it. It’s been a while since I’ve had my pulse quicken while reading, but this book was that good. Overall, a great read with a suspenseful plot!
