After reading and enjoying the first book in this series earlier this year, I was eagerly anticipating Caddy's story! I am thrilled to say that I loved this book even more than the first one! I loved Caddy and Neal was an amazing hero! It was really interesting that this book took place at the same time as book one, just from different characters perspectives!!! Many times in this book I was convinced that I had everything figured out and every time I was surprised by yet another twist in the story!!! This was a great read and the only things I didn't like about it were, 1. There were a couple of questions that didn't seem like they were answered-but they were just minor details so it wasn't a big deal. And 2. I felt like the ending was just a tiny bit abrupt, I actually wouldn't have minded seeing this book be a little longer- but this wasn't really a big deal either and probably the only reason I felt this way was because I didn't want the book to end!
Overall, I loved this book! It didn't disappoint. I definitely anticipate re-reading it in the future! I highly recommend An Honest Heart but I think you may want to read Follow The Heart first!
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher via CFBA in exchange for an honest review. The above is my honest opinion. All thoughts and opinions are one hundred percent my own.

ABOUT THE BOOK
Set during the Industrial Revolution and the Great Exhibition of 1851, An Honest Heart is a “sitting-room romance” with the feel of a Regency-era novel but the fashions and technological advances of the mid-Victorian age.
Featuring dual romance stories, the main plot involves seamstress Caddy Bainbridge and the choice she must make between two men: one from the aristocracy, the other from the working class. Award-nominated author Kaye Dacus pinpoints the theme of honesty—both men in this love triangle have deep secrets to hide, and Caddy’s choice will be based on which of them can be honest with her.
Courtship . . . cunning . . . candor. Who possesses an honest heart?
