Jewel of His Heart

High school drama.  That’s the only thing I can think of to really describe this book to you.

Book rating:  Here a little, there a little

I really had high hopes for this book.  It had all the right things for me—pretty girl on the cover (LOL) great setting and all of that, but I have to say I was unimpressed.  I felt like I was reading about a moody high school girl.  Ugh.  And the leading man did absolutely nothing for me at all.

That being said, you still may want to give it a try, and if you go into it with low expectations you may be pleasantly surprised.  It has a good Christian message in it, so it has that in it's favor.

Juliana is a young girl whose mother dies and leaves her alone in the world.  She has good friends and people to help her, thankfully, but she’s determined to take care of herself.  And she does so by working for the local newspaper.

Josh is building a sheep ranch when he makes a rare discovery on his property.  He thinks that maybe he can make it big and leave the ranch work behind him.

Their relationship is full of back and forth stuff—“I’m mad at you…no I’m not…I’m mad at you again…” etc.  I found this to be quite tedious.

If you are feeling daring, or think that this book can be your thing, give it a try.  If enough people totally love it, I may think about giving it another try myself…but…then again, I don’t know.  The reviews from readers on were pretty high.  Maybe I am just missing something.

Happy Reading!
