Could you love someone that had your dead sibling’s heart in them? I don’t think I could, so when I read the blurb for The Heartbeat Hypothesis, I HAD to read it. This book drew me in from the first chapter and despite the way they met, I expected this to be a lighthearted romance. I was right…. kind of. At the beginning this was a mostly lighthearted book, and I enjoyed it best during the 1st half.
Right before the 50% mark, this book broke my heart. I was teary eyed and frustrated. Why did that have to happen?! I wanted this book to be all rainbows and butterflies with a few perfect photos thrown in. A heartbreaking mystery was thrown in the mix, and the mystery never actually got solved. That bummed me out even more. I like resolution, and while you get it in some ways…. you don’t get it in others. I know, I know. Clear as mud, but if I say anything more then it is a definite spoiler.
Negativity aside, I actually enjoyed this book, and considering it is a debut novel I will definitely be checking out more of her work in the future.
I received an advance review copy of this book that I have chosen to review.
