New Zealander Darcy Farrell has been
raising her orphaned niece, Brooke, for the last eight years.
Her sister had died in childbirth and had listed the father as
unknown on the birth certificate. So when Travis Denton
suddenly arrives from America and claims that no only was he
her sister’s husband, he is Brooke’s father too, she’s
stunned! She’s not convinced that Travis knows what he’s
talking about. However, Travis is determined that his
daughter will come to America and live with him. How can
Brooke part with the child she’s loved as her own for the last
eight years? As Darcy and Travis spend time together in order
to allow Travis to get to know Brooke, they begin to have
deeper feelings for each other. Darcy isn’t sure that
Travis’s feelings for her alone, or because of his daughter.
Can they form a family together?
Three Hearts was an enjoyable read. I grew to
care about both Travis and Darcy, even though occasionally you
want to hit Travis for his totally oblivious determination to
tear his daughter from the only home and mother she’s ever
known. While the story occasionally slows to a crawl, I was
still invested in Travis and Darcy’s finding their happy
ending together. Three Hearts is most certainly
an enjoyable way to spend an afternoon!
