Publisher's Summary

USA Today bestselling author Caroline Fyffe invites you back to Eden, Colorado, where five sisters have inherited the town - and are winning over men’s hearts one by one.

Since their father’s death summoned Lavinia Brinkman and her four sisters to Eden, Colorado, Lavinia has been content with her new life. Well, almost. Lavinia’s heart’s desire - creating the elaborate hats she loves - doesn’t belong in this small town. How can she choose between the life she has and the life she wants? Especially when she’s so utterly vexed by the handsome scoundrel who’s just arrived in Eden.

Rhett Laughlin intends to fulfill a dream and open a profitable restaurant in the growing town. Instead, he’s marched right into trouble with one of Eden’s most eligible bachelorettes. But as much as Lavinia Brinkman is making things difficult, Rhett can’t keep himself from thinking about her.

With every spirited encounter, the animosity between Rhett and Lavinia is starting to look a lot like attraction. And the town of Eden is about to discover what happens when these rivals find what truly lies in their hearts...

True Heart's Desire

I really enjoyed this second installment in the Colorado Hearts Series.
There were some laugh out loud moments and some heart wrenching ones that made it the
perfect book to curl up with on a stormy weekend.

Although this was Lavina's and Rhett's story, it was Dallas who stole my heart.
I hope that this new resident appears in all of the books left in the series because I love him so much!

Another thrilling romance from Caroline Fyffe

"This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review." I can't get over how amazing Caroline Fyffe is able to think up such amazing stories. This is the first time I have listened to her book before reading it and I loved it,. These stories about the Brinkman sisters are like stepping back and listening to stories told by my grandfather. I have enjoyed learning about Bell [Heart of Eden], and seeing her married. Getting to know Lavenia [True Heart's Desire ] was great and I look forward to stories about the other three sisters and the town of Eden, Colorado.

Marvelous

I LOVED the story. Great performance, but I'd rather have a female do female voices and a male for the males. Laughed til I cried on the Sleeping Speckled Plague!!

thank you Caroline!

The 2nd installment of the Brinkman sisters saga is full of mischief, intrigue, betrayal and mistaken identity! Add a sweet romance and you have an enjoyable book that whisks you away to the picturesque town of Eden. Looking forward to the next one!

Emotional Roller-coaster you are going to love

A very touching emotional read that has a little bit of everything in it, a family who has traveled so far as they start over in a new place with new issues that will lead to loss, love, drama, secrets, danger, suspense as they get to know the people and the land. Five sisters much come back to their roots to the home where they were born, they most stay six months to inherit the land their father gave his blood and soul to. We start with a wedding of one of the sister and a mishap to another which has them running to the stagecoach as it arrives with the new doctor on it. He is pulled through the hotel up the stairs to help Miss. Lavinia, Rhett is left in shock what is he expected to do and why does she keep calling him Doc.

As the story moves on and it comes out just who and what Rhett is poor Lavinia is mortified. The story he brings with him about all that is going on in the news has the sisters up in arms not knowing who to trust since it looks like their dear friend might behind this new turn of events. What follows is a very emotional story of friendship, trust and honor as well as pain and sorrow leaving a friendship torn.

The narrator did a wonderful job pulling the listener in, I really enjoyed his character voices he really bought them to life. His normal voice is very nice, there are no background noise, no repeating of words, no volume change, he gave the emotion that the author asked for delivering a very delightful listen that I got lost in.

Lavinia is torn in to different direction as her feelings grow for Rhett, with the six months coming to a close she must decide to follow her dream and return home or stay and build a life with Rhett. The story is build around these two and their romance as well as danger, but it also brings back some wonderful old characters as well as some new ones. It was nice to touch base again with the sisters, seeing what is new and how their life is going as well as some others I hold dear to my heart. I really enjoyed the humor as only Ms. Fyffe can bring to the table with one heck of a roller-coaster ride of danger, love twisted around pain and sorrow that grabs you from the first page with a read I couldn’t put down. I loved how she twisted the story around suspense and danger filling it with dreams and romance as the secrets unfold you are left in an awe state wondering how it will all play out. The characters are wonderful, you will come to love them and hold them dear to your heart. The plot is one that holds your attention and keeps you turning the pages. I thought this first book in this series was great but I like this one more. I can’t wait to see what is in store for the other sisters and how all their lives will turn out, from an author who knows how to tell a story that keeps you captivated. You can read this as a standalone but reading the first in the series will add depth that you wouldn’t have.

Good historical fiction

This is the 2nd book in the Colorado Hearts novel and focuses more on sister Lavinis Brinkman and her budding romance with Eden newcomer Rhett Laughlin. I'm look forward to listening to the next book.

Dreams can morph

I liked the story, the new characters, Rhett and Dallas the dog, and following the continuing saga of the Brinkman sisters. There were some humorous moments, some harrowing moments, and some sweet moments, but I thought this story could have been more developed. If there are only 3 books in this series, there is going to be a lot to wrap up in the final book.
At first I didn't really care for Rhett's voice in the audiobook, but I got used to it.

Designer Hats

Book two in the Colorado Hearts series, this story focused on Lavinia Brinkman and Rhett Laughlin. It deals more with the sisters settling into life in Eden, and the conclusion of their first six months there. I found the book a bit slow and boring. The few incidents were quickly resolved and I didn’t find anything memorable about the story. It is, however, well-written with likable characters. In spite of my bland review, I am going to read book three, the final book in the series.

Once again, I did not enjoy this narrator. I don’t like his voices and in my opinion it detracts from the book. He wouldn’t be my choice of a narrator.
