STORY-LINE MUSIC OF HER HEART BY SOPHIE DAWSON

In Music Of Her Heart, the reader finds Red Dickerson’s staying in a line-shack on Hawk’s Wing Ranch.  After the break up of his engagement to Laura, he needed to review his life and think.  The boss gave him orders to also look out for the King Gang.  An evil group terrorizing the countryside, kidnapping women, stealing, and killing, they live like animals.

When Red finds a frightened and soaked Gema Volkovichna running in the icy rain, she reveals her escape from of the King Gang.  As ice turns to snow, trapped in the line-shack for three days, Red takes care of Gema.  Even though he knows he has sealed their fate by caring for Gema alone, Red takes his responsibility seriously.  Marriage will be the only option open to Red and Gema.  Forced into marriage, will Gema and Red come to care for one another?   Will love grow and bloom? My romance book reviews of Music Of Her Heart follows.

CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:

Sophie Dawson, once again, created a lovely romance for her readers.  Continuing with the Sanctuary House series, Red Dickerson and Gema Volkovichna feature in Music Of Her Heart.  Of course, we meet all our old friends from earlier books, catching up on their lives along with possible romances for future books.

I did not like Red in the earlier books.  However, Dawson matured and broadened his character in Music Of Her Heart, creating a knight in shining armor I found Red dependable, capable, respectful, and striving to do the right thing.  He’s a good man who finally meets the woman God created for him.

Imagine marrying a man because you spent innocent days and nights in his care.  Gema found herself in this position and quickly married to Red.  Social rules of this time forced marriages if a man and woman spent time alone.  Even though married too beautiful young Gema, Red’s thinks he too old for her.  He felt she could not possibly want an “old zeezer” of thirty-four.  Dawson crafted a lovely woman in Gema who’s determined to get her man.  Limited English skills, do not stop Gemma from having her way with Red.  Dawson did not rush Red and Gemma into love.  Instead, she slowly developed their feelings for each other.  Also, Gema has hidden talents which Dawson revealed in a timely manner.  After you read the book, you will understand the meaning of the title.

CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:

Although a cozy murder mystery, I must say I found humor in this story.  With snips, snarks, and quips, the reader sees these, so-called, brilliant detectives, are not as bright as Holly thought. Holly, thinking she’s not as smart as the other detectives, and in awe
