THIS WANDERING HEART by Janine Rosche, Reviewed by Winnie

With a setting in one of my heart places, a storyline that grabbed my interest, and well-drawn realistic characters, Janine Rosche definitely piqued my interest in her debut novel, This Wandering Heart. I found myself wanting to wander with Keira/Kat Wanderfull and see all the beauties of the world.

“Kat Wanderfull was a great woman. Brave enough to walk straight into a dark cavern. Hopeful enough to set her eyes on the mountaintops. Yet, gentle enough to glide through a field of wildflowers without harming them.”

Keira and Robbie each have past hurts and regrets but now have another chance at love. Witty and fun humor, heartwarming moments, and faith elements of forgiveness, reconciliation, and hope are seamlessly woven together to make this a delightful and charming tale of second chances. A colorful supporting cast adds depth and the promise of continuing stories of the Madison River area. I’ll be looking forward to more of them in the future. 4.5 stars

 Back Cover Blurb:
In the first entry in the Madison River Romance series, Keira Knudsen gets the traveling opportunity of a lifetime, but when she reunites with her first love, Robbie, she learns that even a wandering heart needs a home....

No one in the quaint town of West Yellowstone, Montana knows that unassuming geography teacher Keira Knudsen moonlights as sensational travel blogger Kat Wanderfull. No one, that is, except for her first love, Robbie Matthews, who has just discovered the woman he is falling for online is the same one that broke his heart five years ago.

But Robbie has another problem: the mother of his daughter, Anabelle, has resurfaced after a three-year absence determined to rip Anabelle away from him. Robbie needs a steady paycheck for a chance at custody, and now, on the eve of a grand adventure that could give Keira a chance to flee her old, troubled life once and for all, she is in need of assistance.

With so much broken trust between them, Keira and Robbie must keep an arms-length away to make this partnership work. But the more time they spend together, exploring majestic places and sharing new experiences, the closer they get--until their secrets and dreams threaten to cost them everything.
